Using Aqua-vu for Prespawn crappies

Recommended Posts

Now that many of you are starting to get out on open water a lot of anglers will be targeting prespawn crappies. Of course before the crappies hit the shallows they congregate on the edges in around 12-15ft of water at least in the lakes around me. This is where the Aqua-Vu Scout comes in handy, for “scouting” out the terrain. I use it to check bottom content and to find transition zones, or the “spot on the spot.”

Of course if you really want to check out that school of crappies, the Quad-360 isn’t just for Icefishing. With it’s 360º of viewing it lets you know if there are any crappies anywhere in the vicinity.

I've used the Scout camera and I have to say I was impressed with it's picture and how user friendly it is. The cheap price of $200 can't be beat either!!

I got out today and checked out a little drop off near very shallow water where we've been catching a few crappies with the Scout. It was very cool watching a couple crappies swim through!

Aqua Vu cameras are also a very good tool for searching out walleyes in the Summer months!

Do you have some way to mount it in your boat? I wouldn't be real happy if the camera got caught on a stick or something, and it pulled the entire unit into the water.

Usually you are holding on to the cord, so that you can do the depth controol... The cable has 300 lb kevlar in it.. I did get stuck in a tree ont eh bottom once.. pulled the whole tree up! camera still just fine!

I Know that the cable wouldn't break, but I was just scared that if I had it down when trolling, the camera would get caught and pull in the monitor. I was thinking about strapping it around something with a rachet strap or bungee cord. I love using my camera on the hard water, so I thought I might as well give it a try on the open water.

If you don't want to hold onto the camera cord (the safest way in my opinion) secure the cable to a point on the boat, not the monitor.

Of course another option when viewing is to uncoil all the cable you are going to need and then step on it. This makes sure it's not going anywhere, and the Aqua-Vu cables can handle it.
