Can't agree more with the value of the u/w camera. We were fishing a couple of weeks ago and started with the sonar... no marks at all. On a whim I dropped the camera down and sure enough there were good sized fish laying in between large rocks. I dropped a chartreuse jig and a salty and... nothing. Half a dozen came right up, looked and moved on. I set my son up with the same sized jog head, same salty except this time with a pink tail and he had a strike within 20 seconds. I watched them swim by the set up that worked the day before and jump on the new colour.Hooked up with a member Brady early Dec & went to LW. He was running a clinic. He had easily over a dozen fish. Several eaters. Some smaller ones released. 24,25,26 & I think a 27. He was hoping for his first 28. He caught them all with the baitball. I've used it at the same time trying other LT lures. Both worked well when the fish were active. Marks on the sonar with suspended fish which usually are the more active aggressive fish. I've had my marcum camera set up & I've seen them come in quickly. I've also seen them slowly slip in right along the bottom. Some have taken. Some have been scared off. Camera on the lake sure helps. I can really adjust my presentation to their mood.
Same thing on presentation, I took my niece and nephew and observed one catch with a measured presentation and one scare them off being too jerky. Once he slowed down, the bite was on.
