Taking pics in the shanty

Recommended Posts

Hello from Michigan, guys. Great site, I wish michigan had a darkhouse forum. Anyways, I was wondering how you guys get clear pics in the shanty. Obviously the flash has to be off, but outside of that what do you do? Tinker with any of the camera settings? Thanks. Here is a typical pic I get with my camera, pretty blurry, although the water was a little murky too.

Welcome to MN and the forums.

We hope to whine enough to our state that someday you will actually be able to come over here and spear some day, but for now the forums will have to do.

I keep all my settings bone stock (Auto settings)

The biggest issue I have is the lens fogging up from the heat to cold to heat to cold again.

I carry lens cleaning wipes in my camera bag to take care of the outside of the lens. Sometimes the lens fogs up on both sides, when that happens I just wait a while and it clears up.

When I am in the spear house, I keep my camera in its bag but I keep the top of the bag open half way so the air can get in there too.

I only notice it bad when it is very cold out and it takes me a while to set up. Then it will be 15 min or so (once I get heat in the house) before the lens unfogs.

Make sure the macro feature is off also. The macro button should have an icon that looks like a little flower (maybe a tulip?) on it or near it. Or just read the camera manual about the macro feature.

They were about 2 lbs. That was my best day spearing. It was on a little lake in northern minnesta early ice about 2"-3" of ice. Was the first time i took my son. We saw 54 northerns yes 54 in one day( may have been the same northern more than once). The most we had was 3 in at a time. And i only threw the spear one time.

    • If you have season tickets and your not going because your pitcher is not pitching.  Please PM me, I'll sit in your seats that game for yea!  🙂
    • I disagree, I was just in Houston a few weeks ago. I can tell you first hand the starting pitcher played a role in what Astros game we chose to see (Verlander)
    • LOL.  No they don't.  There are 9 people in the stadium that care about that.   People go to eat a hotdog and watch the baseball game.
    • The problem is the Wolves have no leverage now in regards to trades. If Butler wanted out why did he wait so long, that's just going to make it even harder for him to get to the teams he wants to be traded to? He really left the Wolves in a bad predicament with the timing of all of this.   They have to keep him at this point don't they? And man Thibs is as good as gone if they don't get anything in return. This quickly went to a real promising future to disaster. And that huge deal Wiggins got looks worse and worse by the day. The wolves cant build around that deal and Wiggins either.
    • I do believe it will hurt baseball in the long run, as lots of people choose which games they go to based on who the starting pitcher is. Also, I could see it backfiring on a team by depleting their bullpen, should the starter in the next game get rocked early.
    • yes...they have been there probably for longer than that so what is 6 more months?  Not something I particularly am happy about but I am not the expert so I go off their recommendations and also it is expensive and other things were coming into play so here I hang. 
    • Butler is a locker room problem and that is evident now.  We just need to hope there is a team with assets that feel they can deal with his attitude and are willing to give us decent compensation.  Then we need our knucklehead coach/gm to think about the franchise and not himself and really get whats best for the Twolves future and not this season alone!  We have a good chip to deal.  We have 2 players that will be hungry to lead this team and show the nay sayers that they can play at a high level and win!! (hopefully)
