Anyone ever build an underwater camera?

Recommended Posts

Thinking of sending for plans for a "do it your self" infrared underwater camera. Any input is much appreciated.

There is a tread on page 5 "Best underwater camera for ice fishing" that had some information on this subject. It sounded like some people had done what you are thinking of. I would put the link on here but I don't know how. wink.gif

the DIY topic got brought up not too long ago. it seems there is a problem finding the right camera components. if you have a link or info on quality underwater bullet cams, i think a few of us here would appriciate the info.

thanks - joshb

my dad gets a catalog with all kinds of electric components including a waterproof bullet camera. I was thinking of making one myself just to see if i could do it but the problem is that you need a camera with the infrared lights on it which would be hard to find not to mention spendy. I think the waterproof camera i mentioned above runs about $150 so i don't know how much one would be with the infrared lights.

I bought a security camera for 40 bucks and sliconed all openings, dropped it down the hole, I saw a tail of something could not control it well enough to get a better look. played with it for a few minutes and set it up in the window. ( easier to see what was going on outside rather than getting up, boy, now that I look back, man was I lazy.)

I bought some Aqua view cameras, just the camera, cord and battery holder. The screen part was bad so it did not work. Found some 5" black and white TVs with AM/FM UHF and VHF. They have contrast controls and a RCA input. Made some of these things up. When not using the camera you have a radio and TV to watch the game or check the weather. I might have some left if interested E-mail me

    • Mmm mm Thanks!!!!!!!!
    • your package went in the mail today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Figured I'd loop back on this with an update.  I ended up getting the Weber Spirit 3 burner.  Picked it up at Ace Hardware.  Its the same price everywhere ($449) but Ace will assemble it, deliver it, and haul away the old one for no charge.  Bought it Saturday morning had it sitting on the back patio by 3pm that same afternoon.   I ended up looking at a lot of grills including many brands of gas grills, pellet grills, and some charcoal grills.  There were some other gas grills that I liked, they looked to be made solidly from good materials and they came at a decent price.  However, they all lacked a decent warranty.  The webers use less stainless steel than some of the others and I'm not 100% sure what the china production will do to the quality and longevity of a Weber but they do come with the best warranty that I saw.  I believe grates and flavorizer bars have a 5 year warranty and everything else has a 10 year warranty.  Customer service and part availability was also a big selling point.  Weber parts look to be easily available and if you do end up having to replace the grate, flavorizer bars, and burners it will only set you back $150 which should get you many more years out of the grill.    I let my almost 3 year old son pick the color since he came with to help pick it out.  I couldn't argue with his choice of red.  It is clearly the fastest looking grill, now I just need to add a racing stripe. 
    • Saturday morning I was able to put my tag on a nice bird. If I did no get to put some scouting time in I would of moved too fast. I knew these bird was going to show up but he never made a peep on roost or the ground. I was able to call in the hens with him following. The hens yelped twice on the ground and that was it. Had other birds gobbling but I knew this guy was around. It was him with 3 Jakes and 3 hens that pretty much stayed by themselves and nothing to do with the larger group of birds. I was able to see him the Saturday before opener and trail cameras showing he was coming through around 720 each morning. I shot him at 7:15 plan worked out great. 20 Gauge is becoming my favorite gun for turkeys. He was just a couple oz’s shy of 24lbs. double beard 11inch, spurs 1inch. Some big birds dropping. My dads was 25lbs and Protourbait above 24. Might head back to NE this weekend see how the week goes. I have WI left for a couple tags.
    • I personally don't use hens often.  When I do she's in a breeding position near a strutting tom.  I usually go jakes of various postures or no decoys.  I like to keep them guessing where that hen is at.  I've had too many mature Tom's hang up, strut and gobble until the real hens show up to escort him away when using just hens.
    • What would be the reasoning behind just using hen\ hens decoys? To put the toms at ease? I usually use the standard hen / jake combo.
    • Nice!   Yep, that looks just the way I hope to find em!  Nada for me but maybe if I get some time in the turkey woods I’ll have some better luck.
    • That's one cut I need to do on the pellet smoker. Everything so far has turned out real moist and tender,  I'm guessing since the door seals up so tight. I prefer as well to slice that day, the leftovers can go in the crockpot for shredding.. I better go get one.
    • Num that looks awesome. Bet the carcass would boil up to make a mighty fine tasty soup too!
