I am not positive but I think they have made it illegal to use a underwater camera while there are lures or bait out. Might want to look into it. My underwater video camera showed me how much a fishfinder lies. I saw schools of fish and lowered my camera and found nothing but algae balls. A few other times there was nothing on the sonar and when I lowered the camera there were schools of large bass, as many as 30 or more. Thats when I learned that Bass school up no where around structure.
