Hi FishinNY - was out there this week for my last trip of the year in my own boat (bitter sweet putting her away each year) and had a good trip.  Boated three and saw a couple more.  Didn't measure any of them but smallest was maybe 30" that I snagged in the back - just did a quick boat side release on that little guy.  The other two were decent fish with the one having a nice girth.  This was the last trip with my boat for the year so I will be a stow away from here on out.  Sorry the pics aren't the best but I still haven't mastered the art of picture taking when I'm fishing alone out there.

Your in good hands with Water Wolf - I'll be fishing with Capt. Bob & Darrel in two weeks myself.  Should be a lot of fun - hope they have the underwater camera setup working!

 

Also had to say goodbye to my pike buddy who kept watch over my boat all year.  Didn't want those perch getting to comfortable.  He spent the whole year around my boat and is noticeably fatter now than he was in the spring.  Funny how he would sit there with his back half out of the water sometimes.

The Walker Strike vision camera HAS BEEN REMOVED, from the Waterwolf.  We have a new custom one in design/ development stage. That old Walker system was 1980's technology, and they never moved forward with the times. Since no other company has picked up the ball and ran with a view while you fish camera...we are having one made. I don't believe even a prototype will be ready by the time you get on board. 

 

The trouble with the Go Pro, and Waterwolf and other cameras like them is....you have to view the action after the fact. We have them aboard and use them...but it just isn't the same. 

Once this new company develops and fine tunes the camera aboard The Waterwolf, their next step is marketing and sales. 

 

All I am allowed to publicly say at this point is...you won't need to buy a whole downrigger and separate monitor for the new system. It will be plug and play and compatible for all ! Good things in the future are coming!

That's the system we have used since late 1980's.....Walker has changed ownership a few times in all those years. At one time we were even part of their Pro Staff, still might be on their website saying we are? 

The trouble with the system is...IT BREAKS. We bought used systems from other anglers for years and years, and kept 4-5 cameras on the boat, many more IN THE SHOP, and rotated in repaired ones to keep ONE working....

 

It was a joke. The annual repair/replace Walker camera budget being many thousand dollars...

 

We are presently working with a new company (not to be named at this point) who are designing a whole new up to date technology underwater camera system.

 

Have some patience, it is coming. The brains behind the engineering ,builds/ uses underwater cameras for inspecting inside steam generators of nuclear plants.  :)

 

The first version of this new system will be field tested/used aboard The Waterwolf in the near future.

Darrell. I guy I know, Jim Kinner, who dives and shoots video in the Niagara River was just showing a video he made this year at this month's NMA meeting. He said he was using a filter (for the first time) that worked very well to filter out the green. In the past he was not able to get the videos to look as clear as that one did. He could only do so much in the editing before he would loose brightness. It was like night and day compared to many of his previous videos. If you want, I can ask him what the filter color was. I think it was a particular shade of green.

Good picture at Cold Bath shoal today, no takers.
