Lots of fish on the cam this morning.

I'm hooked. I love some of the screen captures you all posted on the other threads. I may have to open up a new forum on here and just start daily live videos.

I guess I'm asking what kind of camera how deep can you put it how clear does the water got to be. I have a fish house also and I'm very interested what the fish are doing while I'm at work

What kinds of fish is that? In the first part of the video there are some fish swimming that have the body shape of a crappie, but the vertical lines have me confused.

That is a live feed, like when people were watching the Eagles eggs hatched, which was a live feed, non stop action. When you click on to watch, you are seeing them at the same precise moment.

This link covers your questions I believe: http://www.crappie.com/crappie/main-crappie-fishing-forum/344652-crappie-com-fish-cam-live-check-2.html#post3336837

And the water has to be pretty darn clear. The water where my camera is, is very clear, but even then the fish fade out in the distance. They have to be kinda close, and the dirtier the water, the closer they have to be to the lens.

Setting up a camera like this is not necessarily easy. Even setting up the YouTube streaming is more complicated than it ought to be. The camera is simple, but you do need a video capture device to get it to input on a computer. The camera outputs via a normal RCA jack. Here's the capture device I use: https://www.amazon.com/Goliton-Easycap-Capture-Easier-Adapter/dp/B016I6E9QA/ref=sr_1_2?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1483471111&sr=1-2&keywords=easycap

Best of luck. Post here if you get it all together please.

The fish with the vertical lines are Brim. But you'll see Bass, Catfish, Bullhead, Gar, Turtles (big and small), Minnows, Guppies, Tilapia and Bowfin. Who know, maybe even a gator. They are there, but I've not seen them on camera. I've seen literally everything except Crappie. Like I said, it's only about a foot deep there and that's probably why we don't see Crappie there. But I keep looking. Maybe this Spring.

Wonder how many strikes a cut off hook with a tube body would receive dabbled down there in front of that camera???

We would all be trying to "set the hook" on those strikes. Need a good presentation tho.....

Or take a quart size mason jar fill it water put a few minners in there, dangle it in front of the cam. See how many fish try to hit the minnows in the jar only to be surprised by an invisible force field.. who knows could work. [emoji54]

I've put a small 1" jig down there in front of the camera, and it surprised that it actually scared the fish away. They are very tentative of anything in their space there. They never hit it, whether I jiggled it or left it alone.
