Anyone use an underwater camera to scout for fish before season opener to try and find fish? If so, can you "pattern" certain fish well or is it a waste of time? Wondering if this would help a rookie out or not.
I use my camera all the time.Where I live in WI.we don't have a closed season,the Wolf river is just closed to Trout and Musky but all othe fish are fair game.We have the annual Walleye Spawning Run going on right now and with rain coming today and tonite it will be in full swng this weekend.The DNR has been shocking the swamps and have netted some nice 28-30 inch spawners.Any tool to use to help find fish is a good investment.
Cameras are cool,but if you are looking for walleyes just go to a mouth of a creek. They are moving in for the spawn. Crappies on the other hand will be suspended in deep water,just off of the shallow muddy bays on the north side of the bay.You might see them waiting for the water to warm up enough so they can move in to feed. They move in and out every day until it gets warm enough to stay shallower. The spawn happens then.Once you see the males are really black ,it will be over.By then it is walleye time.
