Tricked-out Underwater Camera Creates 'Nervous Fish Syndrome'

Recommended Posts

Minneapolis, MN – More than a decade ago, many of the country’s top touring bass and walleye pros began quietly stowing a new fish-finding device in their boats. For these renaissance competitors, the underwater camera became their secret prefishing tool—the only electronic device capable of finding and positively identifying their target species, as well as verifying cover and the big tournament winning fish hiding there.

Today, a new leader in underwater video cameras has emerged. At MarCum Technologies, genius meets passion, and the outcome is innovative products built in the USA. New for 2010-11 is MarCum’s VS625SD. On ice or in your boat, it’s easily the most complete underwater camera system ever made. The proof lies above and below the surface . . .

Marcum's new LCD VS625SD introduces numerous optical breakthroughs


Innovation #1 – New advanced Solar-Intelligent® LCD Technology yields incredible screen detail, even when viewed in direct sunlight. The screen is 3 times brighter than previous technology. An intelligently engineered 6-inch waterproof Flat Panel LCD broadcasts the brightest, clearest underwater pictures possible. It’s like having HD TV right in your boat. (The video resolution is so sharp that several national fishing shows record footage directly from off-the-shelf MarCum systems.)

Innovation #2 – The VS625SD features another MarCum first—a Dual Switchable Color/B&W LCD display. For maximizing underwater detail in clear and shallow conditions, select Color Mode. In deep, dark water where color fades naturally, switch to high-contrast B&W Mode. Now, you don’t need to choose between Color or Black & White. With the VS625SD, you get both!

Innovation #3 – All new high-resolution SONY® Super HAD II CCD optics yields the sharpest colors and the most vivid screen detail available. An advanced, larger image sensor efficiently gathers light and produces a super-high resolution image in either Color or Black & White. Additionally, MarCum’s Darkwater™ Lighting Technology boosts visibility in dark and dirty water.

Innovation #4 – New on-screen displays of camera depth, water temperature, camera direction, and battery status enrich the viewing experience. These enhanced features allow you to track moving schools of fish, as well as pinpoint precise depths of fish and cover. Even locate the level of temperature breaks, including the hot fish zone known as the thermocline.

Plus, this system is calibrated for use in either fresh or salt water, and, the units of measurement can be changed from standard to metric. Complete with a Deluxe Padded Soft pack, Stabilizer Fin, 75-feet of camera cable and a more powerful 12-volt 9-amp rechargeable battery with 3-Stage Auto Charger, the MarCum VS625SD is ready to fish at any time of year, regardless of the conditions. If that weren’t enough, MarCum is offering a special mail-in rebate for a FREE Auto Camera Panning Accessory ($50 value, offer valid Oct. 15 – Dec. 31, 2010).

    • Nope.  It has been going on long enough to avoid that. 
    • Sous Vide... 😀 If not sous vide, then a dutch oven with a steamer thing. If it is too big for a dutch oven  with one of those folding steamer things then I would dig out my 18 quart roaster oven .  I think they even come with a rack.  
    • I think maybe Lund was too aggressive with the price increases in recent years of easy money or something.  When I bought my provee in 98, the difference between it and the comparable Alumacraft was only a few hundred bucks on a 20k package.   And the trim on the Lund looked nicer and more durable.     Some years later and I was at a boat show or something and the prices on ProVs had gone up and the difference was much more.      Presumably a deliberate decision to make ProV a premium product and insert a few other models  in there.   
    • Great call on the chuck, I'm still contemplating it, it sounds fun to give it a try though. At this point I'm leaning on pouring some smoke at it and trying a batch of pastrami,  just have to figure out a way to steam it in the end..
    • Minky, what lb test are you using?   I’m running 2 and 3 Micro Ice on pretty much everything I have for panfish.  I’ve been impressed with what it can handle along with its fish ability.  Pairing with the right rods helps a bunch too.
    • I had to do the same fix on my ‘Ol 96er.
    • Can you leave a propane tank on all summer or does that have to come off at the end of season
    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
