Color Underwater Camera

Recommended Posts

So I was thinking about getting an underwater camera to put in the permanent for this winter and thought it would be cool to get a color camera. I see the price on the color units is pretty high but after doing a little surfing on a popular auction sight I found a couple different underwater cameras (just the camera with cable) that offer a color picture. These cameras can be plugged in to your regular tv. Has anyone tried this before? I dont see how I could go wrong with this....I know I wont be able to use this unit during open water in the boat boat for the price it seems like a sweet deal (maybe too good to be true?)...any input would be appreciated!

I guessed at which site you were exploring for the camera's and you are right, if that is the price and they work it would be a great deal. The one's I found were about fifty bucks. Even the 7 inch monitor included would be a better deal than the price you would pay for the retail alternative, you are still ahead about 550.00 dollars. A person could even buy a decent ice house size flat screen and still be ahead of the game. If you find out any more information please post. It is almost worth it at that price to give it a shot. I have spent more on less in the past.

Shouldnt be too big of a deal in a perm. You can get the power set up for all of it, and keep the monitor.

You basically are paying for the all in one package mobility.

I say go for it, if it doesnt pan out then hawk the camera back where it came from for $10 less.

I have been told the color units do not work that well in fresh water. After going down xft the color turns black and white. Maybe some one that works closer to the cams can tell us more.

The color cameras work fine at deeper depths but you need gin clear water. I have one and am going to buy the black and white because I can use it in more situations. I will be keeping my color camera also.

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
