I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.

Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?

Check and see if you have a video output on you device. You may be able to record to a digital device.

Couldn't find an effective way to have both camera and flasher in same place so decided to DIY one. Camera cable is on a reel which also houses all the camera electronics and 9AH ION battery pack. Its wireless to my Husky bag which houses all the displays. Bottom display is the camera, top is the FishHunger Pro Flasher. Camera is a HD micro night vision 170 deg. mounted between the two lights which goes underwater. Still in development but all the parts seem to work. Being 170 deg. view, I should be able to see my wheelhouse 5 holes at one time with camera in the 6th hole.  Do have a remote rotator to turn the camera to look 360 deg's. Anyone within 150 ft. with a smart phone, tablet etc. can view the camera at it runs on WiFi. Also has an AV RCA video connection to connect to the Wheelhouse TV. Waiting on a few more parts on a slow boat from China.

Convert yours to the LX9 or just rig up a ram mount behind the LX7 to hold your display.

Here is a video with my Camera / Sonar flasher in action. Needs a few mods, but have all summer to complete.
