What sets it apart?

Aqua-Vu loads sharp functionality into this conveniently portable and user-friendly underwater viewing system. Fifty feet of reinforced cable connecting a stealthy underwater camera to the 4.3-inch color flat panel LCD allows significant range of operation for snooping around your deeper structures. Anglers will be able to discern significant detail about their target thanks to a state-of-the-art camera optics and viewing screen, which deliver crisp, colorful images.

How do I use it?

The Microstealth 4.3 includes a magnetic charging port and integrated cable management system, along with adjustable camera clips and fin, which allow forward, down, up and trolling views. A rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery with On Screen Indicator powers the micro camera system for up to five hours; and the magnetic battery charger assures the whole system is IP67 waterproof. Details like the RCA video out and the cable’s depth indication heighten the convenience and functionality of this enhanced recon device.

Angler’s insight:

One of better kept secrets of top-level bass fishing is the use of underwater cameras to positively identify fish-holding structures. Laydowns, brush, log jams — we can find such habitat with sonar units, but taking time to snoop around the cover may reveal key details on quality and quantity, along with positioning. Strategically, observant neighbors are far less likely to notice you spotting fish on the video screen than they are when you bend a rod. And let’s not forget the heartfelt truth of engaging kids by showing them live video of the fish they’re targeting. Hook their interest, then teach them tactics.
