TONY ROACH AND JOEL NELSON TALK ABOUT THE PAST 20 YEARS AND EVERYTHING THEY HAVE LEARNED A ANGLERS THROUGH THE LENS OF AN UNDERWATER CAMERA.
Electronics are a vital key to success when it comes to hardwater fishing. Sonar units, and underwater cameras alike, both have a specific place in ice fishing. The underwater camera, in particular, has established itself as an important tool. For a number of different reasons, I employ these tools for scouting and fishing on the ice:
The new MarCum Pursuit HD puts 20 years of technology into the palm of your hand, tapping into all of the top trends in underwater viewing. The Pursuit HD simply checks every box. Hand-held and HD attributes are a big direction in cameras now, but so often it comes at the expense of other features. With the MarCum Pursuit HD, expect performance with a rich feature set – expect it all.
“Before underwater cameras, I used to think that certain weed-beds held bass, and others had the panfish I was after. Careful study and lots of on-ice viewing showed that most often, the best weeds and weedbeds held both, but few panfish roam edges or openings in the presence of predators. Two-feet can be too far if you’re trying to get a bull gill to come from cover and eat. Punch a hole right on top of them, where they don’t have to leave the safety of cover, and you can pluck them from where you never thought they existed.”
Our cameras are known for their incredible image quality and bright display. However, what many people don’t know is that you can record with nearly all of them. This allows you to analyze underwater fish behavior, create compelling content, and have fun sharing your fishing adventures with friends and family. On most of the units, recording underwater footage is relatively simple. However, it will require a little bit of extra gear on your part.
With the RT-9 2.0 you get more than just a flasher. Instead, you get an entire ice fishing system complete with sonar, mapping, recording, dual flasher capabilities and more. Combine these features with unlimited flexibility, and you have the ultimate system for the ice. In fact, it has such a vast amount of features that we put together a list of the 5 things that you probably didn’t even realize you can do with the RT-9 2.0.
The NEW RT-9 2.0 packs all of the incredible features of the original RT-9 but with a significantly longer run time, updated software and circuitry, an improved docking cradle, and the Navionics + USA and Canada Chip included.
