Underwater Ice fishing cameras are a unique device that are use just for looking around under the ice. Because you can not just look into some clear water and see where your frosty fish are located, you are going to want to use one of these nifty devices in order to prevent yourself from walking all over your favorite ice fishing lake, poking test holes everywhere.
To use your ice fishing camera properly you are going to need to make a smaller hole in the ice about two feet away from your main ice fishing hole. Lower your underwater camera to about the same level that your bait is going to be. Once the water settles you are going to want to point the camera at your bait and wait and watch the screen for some fish.
It is always a good idea to locate your ice fishing hole around areas that are weedy or rocky areas that fish love to hide around. This is another important use for the ice fishing camera, so you will only have to find a good location for your ice fishing shack once.
Your camera is also going to be able to tell you if the local fish population likes your bait and if you should try something else.
The underwater ice fishing camera is a great piece of ice fishing gear if you can afford it. They usually retail for just under two hundred dollars and if that is withing your budget or your can sneak it past the wife then I would strongly suggest adding it to your list of ice fishing accessories.
