For ice fishing vexilar first, then auqu-view. For me the camera is more entrtainment for the kids than anything. If you learn to use an fl-8 you can tell the type of bottom. The fl-8 allows you to see were the fish are. If they are not biting,it is nice to se on camera what type of fish as well as how they are reacting to your bait/presentation.

GOOD LUCK!!

Well in a nut shell, buy the vex first, especially if you are a portable fisherman. I own an aqua-vu and it is worthless as soon as the sun even starts going down.

It is really awesome to have in the permenant shack, I hook mine up to a 13" TV and we watch it on that screen, plus we can record things that happen too, like a huge muskie swimming right in front of the camera.

Vex = portablity and flexibilty day and night
Aqua-vu = pure entertainment

I have a FL-18 Vex & an OVS-500 Camera, As mentioned previously when being mobile the Vex is great. The camera seems to take to long to set up but when there is time the camera is great to have.
Good Luck

Along with all the other posts, get a Vex first. It can tell you if there are even fish down there to look at. The cameras are fun and a good tool to check out bottom conditions and structure you locate with the flasher. Each piece of equipment should pay it's way in how much it improves your catching of your target species. If one of those turns out to be a camera then great, but a Vex, or any good FLASHER will most definatly pay it's way.

    •   Democrats have wanted a single payer system from the start, but they don't have the power to pull it off.   The elderly, the healthcare providers and the medical profession are the drivers of the legislation, and they don't want single payer either, since they have already seen what has happened to Medicare coverage.

    • Same here. And look how well twetter is working for da prez!!
    • Facebook is where it's at...no thanks...
    • All forums have a certain shelf life. There is only so long that the debate over Ford/ Chevy, Vex/Marcin. Eskimo/ Strike master, Ice Castle / Yeti can keep your attention. After a while most just slip away. New people are using social apps more that the old forum formats and that is that. The only thing saving silly town is that politics is the gift that keeps on giving. 
    • Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham is among GOP leaders saying Republicans and Democrats now need to work together on a fix. Over the weekend, Rep. Betty McCollum and Sen. Al Franken – both Democrats — said they agreed with Graham. “That is what we need to do,” Franken said on WCCO Sunday Morning. “Speaker Ryan said at the end of this process that the Affordable Care Act is the the law of the land. We need to address what’s wrong with the Affordable Care act, what isn’t working.” Immediately after pulling the bill, Trump said he would be willing to work with Democrats on health care.     Too big to fail.....deja vu

    •     I saw a couple of statements in the media yesterday from Dem leadership to the effect that they would be interested in working with Ryan on this.  One from our very own Al Franken.  So that tells me they most likely already are.      
    •   The 20" box fan thread was very informative, and lasted for years....
    • Possibly but it seems like the Democrats are now in the beginning stages of floating single payer. Lots of talk on that since the neocons dropped the ball
