Thank You for your patience.

I picked up an OVS 560 last week at Bass Pro Shops in Fridely. I had my name on a list there since September and they called me last Tuesday. I picked it up that day after I got off work.

I've tried it a couple times and it works great! I put it in nineteen feet of water off the dock in the NE corner of Lake Calhoun an hour before sunset and got a beautiful picture, without the lights on, but didn't see anything down there. I also hung it off the side of the boat while I was duck hunting, up north, last weekend. At 4:30 in the morning it looked like daylight (within the lights range of illumination) when I turned on the lights. I only saw a perch and a bunch of minnows.

The rotating camera is really a nice feature. It will also auto-pan at three differnt speeds.

I'm not certain about the illumination range. I've never used one of these things before so I have nothing to reference it by. I don't think ten feet would be too far out of line. Something like five to ten feet seems about right. Someone with a better eye and more knowledge, perhaps, can give a more certain answer.

    • Don't be fooled by stainless cables. Take proper care of them and change them every few years.Do your pivots every couple years too.
    • Might as well get augers in on this too!
    • Just counted 14 of them under and on my feeder. Cardinals, Nuthatches, Juncos, and asst sparrows came in and they chased them all away. It's like one stands guard and chase everything off. Sorry guys, time has come to start thinning the blue rats out!

    • nope..........havent graduated to posting meme's yet!!!!!!!!!
    • Have a marcum LX9 also use a couple Lowrance units. After using them side by side there are features I like on both but just comparing sonar units I'd have to say that my lowrance units squeak out a win for me over the Marcum. Both are very close to the same performance. The Marcum is much easier to just plop and fish where the lowrance units you have to dial in for each situation. I've never been a traditional flasher guy and never see the need to after using a graph.
    • Yep put mine away this past Saturday. I haven't used it since August. I wanted to park my truck inside instead and I would rather hunt then fish anyways...
    • Go to Milaca unclaimed Freight and for the pulley 8to 1 lift. Cheap and easy  
    • Had to go back and see if it was you that posted this one: 😀
    • World famous. Browned pork, Italian seasoning, onions, garlic. Then hash browns with cheese.
