Opinions On Video

Recommended Posts

We're going to shoot some ice fishing action. Before we do, we would like you to watch this video we shot and share your opinions.

Bear in mind the idea was to video Dave and Richard. I was only there to keep the boat under control for the video guy. Then the video guy stuck an ice rod in my hand..well just watch and share your opinion.

Would you like to see us do some ice fishing action video real life and share it in the Video Forum here?

Click the appropriate connection speed to watch about 7 minutes of big bluegill action.

Test Video 56k modem - CLICK To Watch
256k - Click To Watch (High Speed Internet)

To download and save the video for later viewing: Right Click on your mouse and choose "Save Target As".

The video worked great on my computer. Fun to watch. Was good quality. I would enjoy watching ice fishing videos if you put them in the forums. Let's see a 30 inch walleye on camera!!

The board is moving fast this morning.

Still looking to see what kind of interest there is in having some ice fishing videos in streaming video format as the one above.

That would make the site that much better.
Maybe some underwater winter action, on a metro lake, With the items that the site promotes-that would be awesome!! 30 inch Eye hitting a A.E.- I want your job(pro staffers)

[Note from Rick: WhaTT, you wouldn't be able to pay the bills. The Pro Staffers do the FishingMN Pro Staff deal because they love sharing info with you guys. It has to be because they sure aren't being paid anything to do it.]

I played it on my Windows media player and it worked great. Nice sun fish! When I played it on full screen it was a little pixelated, but not to bad.

I think it would be awsome, and think of the new members we could attract. Like they say a picture is worth a thousand words. Sometimes it is hard to picture how something works, like the rock-n-reels, and it would be so easily explained in a video. I love to watch anything on ice fishing and as everyone knows there aren't a lot of shows that devote much time to it. I think this is a great next step for our forums Rick. If you could make the video downloadable it would help with clarity and you could pull the video up as many times as you wanted an veiw it again. AWESOME!!!!!

I added instructions in the first post on how to download for those of you who can get a better viewing experience that way.

Is this all the interest we have in Ice Fishing Videos for you to watch, possibly even take part in?

I'll post another one to see in the morning. Do you want to watch for fun or education?

I agree that this should be done on the ice. Also, some aqua-vu footage would be nice. It wouldn't hurt to compare some real bait to bio-bait either. I couldn't tell what the other guys had on their jigs. Was it nothing at all and were they fishing with the same jig. Just being devils advocate here. I think bio-bait is a great idea and wish you the best of luck.

I think a couple of "how-to" ice fishing videos would be great. Maybe you could have one for each species. There is a site out of North Dakota that has some videos and they are great learning tools.

I love the video idea. How about instructional videos on the flasher type units. A newbie like me to electronics could really benifit from a video like that.

Nope, this was an issue before. I'm not sure what the problem is. Might be on my servers end. All audio no video. My WM is fully updated. How hard would it be to stream in QT for you guys? Seems to be more reliable IMO.
Rick, streaming media is sweet at broadband speed(mice are still propelling my internet signals across copper here in Ely). Bring it on!

Chunk, wmv streams really well. We deliver 1000's of them per month. Really are you sure you have MP 9? Are you mac?

I enjoy fishing videos and have about 20 to my name and have access to others through friends and the henn co library. I think adding video to the site would have value to those with high speed access.

At first I was wondering what the product was with using ice rods on bio bait, then realized the bait was the product. Using the ice rods on open water may distract, but if they are a client in the video, great.

Video was good, but the volume seemed to vary between the people, and there were some distracting background sounds like beeping that may be able to be removed.

The other point is one guy caught all the fish. Rick, you the man!! Were you the only one using biobait or are you that much better of a fisherman? If everyone catches, I think you sell more of the bait and less of your outstanding fishing skill.

My biobait question is do you need to presoak them-I get the impression they are dry. How long does it take to soak? Do other species take them as readily? I think convenience is a big selling point as you no longer have to mess with getting live bait ahead of time-finding a nearby baitstore that is open when you go in the morning. That and the hassle of taking a tippy minnow bucket out on the ice and moving and not spilling.

Just some questions/ideas.

The volume worked fine but the video seem to get stuck or skip. I have dsl. Videos lots of videos would be great. Fish On

Yep MAC. In no way was I saying MP isn't reliable. It just gets sticky on the mac platform. Alot of streamers offer both. I know it's more work and all but DARN IT, I want to see the videos! Hey, email me RE DV stuff. I mess around quite a bit with it.

Rick, I think the video option has endless opportunities. Great way to introduce new products on the site, How to video's for the rookies and the more experienced, video the get togethers with some of the highlights of the event. Overtime you can have a video library in place. For Christmas this year I am thinking of picking up one of those camcorders that fits in the palm of your hand and video records to a chip vs a tape. Is that what you are using to do these downloads. Just curious

    • I'm no bird expert, but I'd like to think one of those big neon signs that lights up orange with "OPEN" on it, would help!!
    • Swap the wild bird seed for sunflower chips. Goldfinches love it!
    • Probably 10-15 years. At least.
    • At first glance, I was going to ask if the circus came to town.  LOL.    Really, there is a bird visible there in the photo.    How long has this arrangement been in place?  I ask, since it does take awhile for the birds to find the new feeders.  
    • Another summer with few birds. Anybody see any problems with this feeder assortment? I have 1 or 2 Oriole pairs when I had dozens last year. I have a couple catbirds. I have nuthatches galore like everyone. Purple finches are still around. Also have cardinals like last year. I did have 1 Indigo Bunting but no neat/unusual visitor birds even passing thru. More red-wing black birds than before. No hummers. No goldfinches. No grosbeaks.  I've read house sparrows chase things away and I do have a quite a few but not infested by any means. Lots of blue Jays. Very few of the assorted bigger blackbirds. Haven't seen a cat prowling around hardly all year either. Feeders are kept well stocked (safflower,thistle, premium wild bird seed, black sunflower, grape jelly, & hummer juice) and clean with fresh seed but none of my favorite birds I mentioned. That PVC pole hasn't had a squirrel figure it out for at least 2 years and the couple that did aren't talking. Is this too much too close together? Any suggestions?
    • Dang...  I just passed through Ely on Sunday and glanced at the store, thinking about him.  Quite the character.  No more rides in the Pope Mobile. 🙁   Rest in Peace Sir Maki.   Thanks for posting @leech~~
    • The steep sides on shore continue and drops off pretty fast.  A good peecentage of the pond is 8-10.  I saw one spot that was 11 foot.     The neighbor says it has springs and it took a bit longer to get walkable ice than it should have considering the size.  I had been out on a couple smaller metro lakes last winter, figured it had to have been frozen pretty good.  Two steps on the pond and fell right through. It didn't seem to suffer from any winterkill last winter.  It doesn't get a lot of weeds.     Still working on a fish survey.  I can confirm that there are big goldfish and bullheads.  I have seen some pretty good size swirls around dusk making me wonder if there aren't a few bass in there.
    • How deep is it?  May be they would care if you drop a few bass and sunnies in it?  😉
    • There are other houses on the pond, nobody has a dock though.  I don't think my neighbors would care, I kinda ran it by the guy on one side.  Because the county plat map has the pond divvied up between 8 different properties on the street, I would think that technically taking a kayak around the pond would be trespassing.  Nobody has complained though and during the winter there were skaters and people running their dogs all over it and nobody asked me for permission.  Not that I care at all.   I don't need a Hatfield / McCoy problem with the neighbors, but at the same time it's my property.  If I had a McMansion on Crystal Lake in Bville nobody could or would complain about me putting a dock out.
