Reel Weeds? Underwater Camera... pics

7 posts in this topic

Ok so as some of you know I got my Cabela's Advanced underwater camera last sat, by the way its AWSOME!!! Anyways I was wondering if any of you guys have tried the structure on a string and if it really attracts fish, Im going to give it a try on my camera and another in a hole right by my spear hole, my goal is to attract some panfish to get the nords in the area, anyone got some tips and tricks or suggestions on the possibility of this working.

Whats your opinions?

Camera, Reel Weeds...

Camera - Good.

Reel weeds - bad. At least they didn't do much for me. Just IMHO. Hopefully they'll work better for you. It's always good to try new stuff. Might work better on your lakes.

Reel weeds work good for pannies, perch and pike. But haven't had an eye come close. Hope it helps.

laska thats the same cam I have they work great as for the reelweeds Iuse them but not enough the first time i had pike move into them waiting to ambush pannies as they swam by, I didnt have the weeds down the hole 5 mins and the pike were already in them. but this has been the case all the time. no real tips you just have to experiment and its really trail and error. hope they work for you.

See, where I spear (lake winona), I dont have any structure on the only point on the lake, its all weeds that are a foot tall and scattered badly n sandy bottom, Im hoping puting my cam down my spear hole with the weeds on will help bring them in and Ill put one right on the outside of my perm darkhouse, hopefully if the nords come in, they come in between the weeds and thats where my decoys will be, hopefully my plan will work and Ill try to take pictures to show you guys!

elwood maybe if ya come down you can see it in person! Maybe have some simple pointers you could show me.

I have never been a fan of the reel weeds for Spearing. I think they would work, but i try and set up on the outside of the weedline, so there no good for me.

Camera is awesome to be able to check out the bottom before you waste the time to cut the whole!

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   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 am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • 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?
