And you thought the Shad Cam was addictive.

Sheesh. I even get skunked with the underwater cameras.

Edit: Just saw a walleye. Cool.

Ok. That was too much fun. These were all captured in about 15 minutes...Quite the walter hangout I might add. Most of the action is moving from right to left with the occasional carp coming upstream. Ok, now I need to work. Get to know those hotkey commands for capturing, it's pretty tricky!

dang it, I cant figure out how to do a screen capture.

Hit pause when you get a fish image on the control bar at the bottom, shift/print screen at same time, go into "paint" and click edit. Click paste and use "save as" to store image. Then host the image and post here!

I got a few...seems like more of a morning spot smile Suckers moved in before dark and got a couple of close-ups. Did see one large pike absolutely fly past the camera.

When you find out, you will slap your self like I did when I found grin

There is a couple ways, but the most basic is very easy.

When I get home I will put up some pictures on how to do it, if some does not beet me to it before then grin

First question, do you have a photo image hosting site that you use. Have you ever posted an image of FM before?

1. When you see a fish, hit the pause button

2. Do a print screen. There should be a key on your keyboard, you might have to do ctrl/print scree, function/print screen, or maybe just a simple print screen, depending on your keyboard layout.

3. Open up an image editing software (MS paint works fine)

4. Right click copy

5 Edit as needed and save as JPG file

6. Upload to host

7. Post here just like any other picture.

I'm sure there is an easier way, but this is how I do it.

That sucker was mugging there for almost an hour! I got a few good ones of him, but your pics look pretty solid JimBuck. Every time I opened up the window for a while there he was just sitting in front of the camera.

I have to hit shift and print screen. I never tried the others ways.

The print print screen key should be just to the right of you F12 key (upper right of key board).

What Dtro said is the best way to start out. If you have vista, you can do a search in you start menu (leower left of desk top screen) for "Snipping Tool". For me it is a hair a peice, but if you have this it is just as easy.

    • better late than never!!  so far it's not to late any way!
    • I'm curious about the GenieJar.  Looks like there is a 30oz and a 17oz version.  I wonder how it works in fairly cold weather.  The nice thing about styrofoam is that it insulates against the entire water mass freezing into a minnow-sicle.  I wonder if they recommend throwing it inside your jacket or something. 
    • Agreed. I am getting nervous about the state of out financial situation now, well, I guess getting MORE nervous. Toward the back end of the contract Parise's deal isn't so bad since it was front loaded, but the term is so long. IMO we cannot afford any more buyouts. Pominville is such a buzzkill. Koivu has really played great the last 1 plus this year. No, he isn't going to win many races for the puck, but as long as he isn't on the top line I am OK with that. Staal is doing a little better than I had hoped I guess. I was hoping just for solid play, but there have been a few games where he and Coyle we so strong on the puck the opposition couldn't get control of it.
    • Hey Star, I wouldn't leave the fan there. It's going to get really HOT and will melt ! Move it to the bottom of the cabinet just left of the gas valve and have it blowing up so it pushes the heat out the vents on the top half of the heater.
    • I agree with the backing for the fly line.  Never had any problems and the stuff seems to get better with age.
    • Best thing I've found is backing for fly line.  It has no memory and virtually no knots.  It's better situated for rattle wheels because of the physical size of the backing but I've not had any problems yet with my Frabil tip-ups.  Deepest water we fish in is only 30' with normal depth of around 12'.  Our local Runnings sells 50 yard segments for like $3 each in any color. 
    • The next year my Mom and Dad cooked the turkey in one of those white roasters and it was awesome.  So I told her that too.  Big time.  It was nice and juicy too.
    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy.
