Eyoyo Underwater Camera
« on: December 29, 2018, 10:26:41 PM »
Got out today to try the new camera, made a couple changes to the unit. I spooled the camera cable on a larger spool (flyline spool) which eliminated a lot of the "coiling" of the cable. Put an elastic/tape with some "slack" on the cable/camera to keep horizontal and eliminate any direct pull on the camera cable-camera connection.  Also made a temporary bar/clamp to hold the camera at correct depth and direction, I believe I will be getting a remote for it but the "quick fix" for today worked great. It comes as a great compact unit, but with the few changes I made I put it all in another carry bag I had. It has lights but to many particles and stuff in the water here, reflection sort of whites things out.

Overall I was pretty happy with the unit. We were fishing a fairly sharp drop off a weed edge we located with the camera. This unit does not come with recording ability so my  phone camera pics of the screen are not that great and don't really reflect the true clarity of the camera but clarity out to about 6' today was good.  With larger lures/bait in this lake I am sure you could have easily seen out to at least 8' or maybe 10'. The sky was fully overcast and this was in 18' of water with maybe 3" of snow. This unit only comes with about 50' of cable so no good for lakers but good for all the fishing I will be doing with it.  Picked up before xmas on sale for less than 150.00 Canadian off Amazon.


This was a small marmooska hook with a small piece of worm on it, camera was about 2' away. The silver line in the middle is a clamp that comes on the camera, I have now bent that down a bit to keep it off the screen.


This pic was of a small forage minnow with a piece of worm on it about 6' away. (just above a bit to the left of the (t's weeds)

Nice sharp image from it.

They are fun to have but a guy has to remember to fish and stop playing with the camera often lol

Ya, I hadn't used one for probably 10 years, actually got it more for the wife. I have had a flasher for many years and she seemed to like watching for the fish on that so think she will like the camera as well.

        Pretty cool camera, seems like a decent unit for the price.  Think one of them is going to be making it's way to my place here soon.

        It's a slippery slope with the electronics I find, especially with a family that fishes.  You get hooked on using the darn things and soon everyone needs one.  We run 3 separate flashers and a camera and probably going to get another one of each for backup on the bigger trips.  Invaluable tools, definately put a lot more fish on the ice with them than without them.
