Had same problem last year they just shutdown Try depere
Picking up the new aqua vu 700hd this weekend. Pricey but will fart around with it and post an honest review/report when I get out next. Way it's looking right now there's finally some cold weather on the way and should get the boat away. Where's the first safe ice normally? Asylum?
MOON PHASE (5%)
36° - 40° F
40° - 45° F
fished the eastside for 4 hrs on Wednesday. Water clarity was stained and the surface temp has remained 40 degrees for 7 days. Trolled 1.5 and increased eventually to 2.0 mph - nothing. moved on to perch on rock to mud breaks - nothing, then to mud flats... and you guessed it, nothing. ended the day with casting jigs then some live bait - nothing. All proven techniques 3 - 4 weeks ago. Fish are suspended just off the deep reefs, but would not know what they are as I could not elicit a bite. I would have asked how others were doing, but I never saw another boat. I took this as a sign (Karma, Fate) what ever you want to call it and ended the day by winterizing the boat. Proceeded to charge the Vexilar and the ION batteries. See you on the ice.
Seems to me all the cameras are the same. Dirty water can't be penetraited with the light and the brighter the light the more it picks up debris wise. May b better with an LCD sonar. Like a humminbird. Then they can track fish and watch them come up.
Looking at underwater cameras for ice fishing and just to goof around with. Have a older Aquaview and it is useless in stained water or low lite. Thought about buying a good Marcum model, something for my son to watch and to entertain him. The question is is the visibility on Bago good enough to make it fun, I know the lake goes through cycles of clarity and dirty water. For those that own one is it worth it or not?
Thanks in advance for your honest opinions!!
Panfried, I also plan on fishing for burbot, lawyear, eelpout for the first time ever this year as well. I watch youtube videos & learn from my mistakes. Check out "in depth outdoors burbot" & watch the full episode. You might learn a thing or two. Good luck catching them!!
Hi, I am a high school student in the area and I am making tip downs for a school project/ fundraiser and am just wondering if anyone would be interested in purchasing them. I am unsure what the price will be at this time. Message me if you are interested and I can get you more information.
If you want to catch lawyers, just get a divorce. Otherwise a lake master chip on a locator will help. I have a humminbird and it has all the reefs marked and countours. It's your best bet. Most specific spots people have are a secret because they found them on their own. All I can say out here small baits can catch big fish. Don't go with the typical big bait big fish here.
