Anybody have any good tips on using. Question- At night do fish see the camera light or is it only visible to us? Just ordered the tri-pod from Reeds, 14.95. Its cheap enough, hope it helps with camera spin!!

My main experience with underwater viewing systems is with Aqua-Vu systems. The system I am the most impressed with is the Aqua-Vu SV system. The Aqua-Vu SV offers the user the ability to orient oneself on structure. The compass feature on the Aqua-Vu SV is by far the best feature any underwater camera can have. You can quickly orient and track schooling fish and map structure in detail. An indispensable tool in my eye.

The new Aqua-Vu Mo-Pod is a big hit. That really makes camera operation far less of a hassle while actively fishing. A tri-pod alone is a huge benefit when used with the Aqua-Vu SV system. The Mo-Pod camera control system takes user convenience to a whole new level. Very cool!

Lights are not as useful to me as the compass feature. I have mixed feeling of how effective they truly are at night. They work well in clear water yet I feel they often spook fish.

When I do use the lights at night I use them with the camera set to focus downward, a birds eye view with the aid of the tail fin. I feel this has less of a detrimental effect on spooky predators like walleye. I use the camera in a working relationship with my Vexilar to pinpoint the mood of the fish in 3-D from the vertical and the horizontal. The combination is highly effective for me on rivers.

Adding the tri-pod to your MC2x-Series camera system will make your camera use far more productive and enjoyable. A very wise choice.

    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
