I used a Marcum and took it back. It was fine, I just expected it to be better than it was. Plus I hole hop and the systems seem bulky to me, especially with a flasher there already.

I will give them another try once they all move to LCD screens (not just the high end ones).

Tyler - I'll sell you my ICE-45 w/case for $315. You know how little I've used it grin

Way more useful than any camera around here!

I like to drill quite a few holes when I'm initially scouting an area and pop the camera down to see what kind of structure, breaks and fish I'm fishing. It's also nice to keep them near a tipup if it's hard to keep an eye on. I've got a Marcum VS380 and love it. Well worth it.

I have the Aqua View Quad360. You cant see 360* its more like 85* out of every 90* up close, out a ways its 360*. I still really like it. If I had to buy another it would be the model that you can turn under water. Like the actual camera turns inside a housing. Its hard to keep track of your bait if there is much current.

We had an Aqua Vu, wasn't bad now run a Marcum VS 820 and love it. May get a color one this year just so the wife and I don't have to fight over the one we already have.

The Marcum 380 is a great camera to.

First time out with my Aqua Vu (I bought the tripod) I got sick of trying to get it set just right. Not enough time out there to fiddle with it, so next time out I hooked the cable through the plastic fin and down viewed. Thats all I have ever done ever since. Works great. I go about 2 feet above my jig, can see it all times. I suppose with the 360 that option isn't even available.

    • Still best smoked, as they are an oily fish, too.
    • I am having the same issue with mine. I believe it's a gen 2 that's 2 years old but only been out 3 times now. Took it out last weekend for the first time this year and the hose was stiff and the fittings leaked. I contacted jiffy and they said it needed to go to a service center to be repaired. I called the service center and they would have to order the part anyway. I've tried finding the hose around town but everywhere is sold out. That's definitely going to put a damper on the nice weekend coming up. I'm really kicking myself for going with the propane and not an Ion. This auger was my first experience with jiffy after having and Eskimo and strikemaster. My strikemaster was the 3 blade that had some issues with bending the blades. I called them to find out if there was a replacement that I could buy and they ended up swapping it for free and this was after having it for 6-8 years. I'm very disappointed in the service from jiffy on a 2 year old auger with defective parts. 
    • For me Tullies have always been rather strong flavored. Always needed a lot of smoke to cover that up. 
    • Looking forward to the results of your experiment.
    • And now today is Wednesday.  So There.
    • a quick blurry shot and off they went. still trying to get them together in a good shot. maybe some day.  
    • I posted that several days ago, although if you know what interest rates will be doing over the next several years you have better ways to spend your time than posting here.    You would no longer have to work for a living for sure.     To refresh your memory, the 9.1 trillion that you and Rand Paul are so upset about would not increase the debt to GDP ratio, assuming a 5% growth in Nominal GDP, which would be 3% growth and 2% inflation.      Do you have a figure for acceptable level of Debt to GDP?  
    • Right.  Sometimes Obama wasn't Progressive enough.  Bernie was more your speed. 
    • This is America.  We have computers and printers.  You can print it and frame it and hang it on your wall.  Nothing stopping you.   In fact Costco will print it on Canvas for you.     Please, post a picture of your office with it framed on the wall.
