As an added bonus, a padded, weatherproof case is included so you can store and transport the system with ease.

Applications

  • When fishing from a boat or pier, lower camera into the water, use the monitor to locate fish and determine species and size
  • When ice-fishing, lower camera into the water through a hole in the ice, use the monitor to view fish as they approach, see how fish react to different types of bait, lures, colors, and movements (fish and view through same hole or use one hole for fishing and another for viewing)
  • Exploring underwater sea life and environments
  • Checking waters for safety before going swimming
  • Performing inspections under your boat

A solid camera. Image and clarity is decent past 20 feet. You don't need to personally identify and name the fish! This camera functioned well. We caught more fish this ice fishing season as a result of using this camera.

Works great!

Used this new cam next to my old aqua view. Older cam had a clearer image , which was a bit disappointing but the new cam was still verry useable .

was expecting better resolution

while ice fishing ,, it definitely improved the amount of fish we caught! Was expecting better resolution . Winding up the camera cord is a bit of a pain,, suggest you guys attach a reel of some sort.

Poor resolution

Seems like with the 715 model there is no consistency in quality. Bought it based off two buddies with same model a few years old but sadly my brand new one has the worst resolution. My screen is really washed out and does not improve even with changing the screen settings.

Great features

Got it a month ago. Only used it twice but made a big difference in our ice fishing trip. Can't wait to use it next winter.

question

How is the camera guided for direction change?
Asked by: Anonymous
Slowly troll (less than 2 mph) or drift along the structure you intend to view. The camera will face in the boats direction of travel. If youre facing and moving forward, so will the camera; it will show you the underwater terrain in front of you. The stabilizer fin always keeps the camera tracking straight, so long as youre moving. Here is link to the manual as well: http://bit.ly/1mqTIIP

question

Hello i would like to know what the view is of the camera what distance?
Asked by: Anonymous
Depending on the clarity of the water our general rule is you can see twice as far as with your eyes.
