cabelas camera weight replacement

Question

squeedunk

I have a cabelas underwater camera and lost the sliding weight down an ice hole last night as I was pulling it up crazy.gif. Does anyone know if they sell replacement weights?

I would take the camera to a hardware store & buy a big bolt that fits the bracket.

Squeedunk -

I hope you don't mind me asking but ... I'm finally caving in concerning the acquisition of an under water camera and am starting to do some research. How do you like your Cabela's camera? Have you used it on open water? How does it do for you?

Any feedback you can provide is appreciated. I was at Cabela's a couple of weekends ago and saw that they had a camera with their name on it but the floor model was broken so I couldn't get much of a feel for it VS the Aqua-Vu Scout.

Thanx in advance

Aside from losing the weight down the hole I really like the camera for the price ($200). I have not had much experience with other cameras but the picture quality on the cabelas camera is very nice. It has an infrared light for night time fishing but it isn't the best picture after dark. The camera picks up a lot of junk that's floating in the water and makes it difficult to see very far. In the daylight, you can see quite a ways, depending on how murky the water is. Overall, I am very happy with the camera and would feel lost ice fishing without it now. It works nice in open water too as long as you are not trolling along very fast. If you are moving along the camera will swing up off the bottom from the water pressure on the cord. I am sure this is the same with any other camera as well.

I am heading to cabelas today to see if they have a replacement weight for me.

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
