The Fish Tv 7 underwater viewing system allows you to become an aquatic explorer without getting wet! With the Fish Tv, you'll now be able to see what's really below the surface of the water.
While a depth-finder provides depth and a "representation" of the terrain below the boat, Fish TV actually shows you a fish-eye view of the underwater world- like scuba diving without the limitations. With Fish TV you will immediately begin discovering a whole new "planet" of underwater adventure- and experience fishing in an exciting and entirely new way. Don't be surprised if you suddenly find yourself catching more fish and having more fun!
However you employ your Fish TV- for pure fun as a discovery tool, for learning while fishing and observing nature, for monitoring small children or pets, or even security purposes- you will experience a fascinating new "view". Your eyes will be glued to the monitor!
Fish Tv Advantages
- View bottom structure and distinguishing features. Observe weed lines and weed characteristics, sand versus muck, big rocks versus small rocks, and transitions from one bottom type to another. That's a big aid in helping you identify fishing patterns.
- Sharpen your fishing techniques- watch your lure and see how approaching fish react to it. Learn what baits, lures, colors, and jigging actions attract fish and trigger strikes.
- Identify fish species and size. Viewing actual fish with a Fish TV solves mysteries about what depthfinder signals really show, This real picture helps with choices about fishing technique. Knowing whether fish are present, or whether your target species is present aids in deciding to stay or to leave a post.

More Fish TV Features
Ultra red LEDs are built into your Fish TV camera, surrounding the lens. By rotating the adjustable dial (MIN/MAX) on the monitor from MIN (minimum- OFF) to MAX (maximum intensity), you can adjust the intensity of the ultra-red lights.
Ultra-red lighting is best utilized during the first hour after sunrise, and the last hour after sundown, as light levels beneath the water's surface are reduced during these times.
Camera Cable Keeper/ Carrying Handle
The Fish TV contains a built-in camera keeper on the top of the monitor case. The cable wrap is the best way to store extra cable when not in use. This device also doubles as a convenient carrying handle. As you will find, Fish TV is the most portable, easy to carry underwater viewing system on the market today.
The monitor sunshield is built into the soft case which is now included with the unit. It prevents sunlight from shining on the screen. It is recommended that you use the sunshield during bright sunny conditions to preserve monitor picture visibility.
Auxiliary Power Cable
Your Fish TV includes an Auxiliary Power Cable for powering the unit with an external 12-volt battery, as opposed to 10 "C" batteries. When plugged into the Fish TV monitor and connected to an alternate 12-volt battery, the unit no longer draws power from the 10 internal C batteries. This is a very handy option for powering Fish TV for extended periods, such as inside a boat, ice fishing house, or recreational vehicle.
Camera Ballast Weights/ Stabilizing Fins
Your Fish TV camera comes fully assembled and ready to use. The camera housing is equipped with stabilizing fins and ballast weights. The weights allow the camera to quickly reach a deep water and stay there while moving slowly. (NOTE: Do not attempt to remove camera weights or fins- doing so may void your warranty and/or destroy the waterproof integrity of your camera) The fins keep the camera "swimming" straight ahead while moving. No matter which direction the camera moves, this is the direction the Fish TV camera faces. If you are moving forward in a boat, Fish TV will always "face" in that same forward direction. If you move into a reverse direction, the camera will automatically rotate and begin facing in the direction of the boat's movement.
Down Viewing Fin
The notched tail fin provides you with down viewing capability. Simply insert the camera cable into the notch and drop the camera into the water. This repositions the direction of the camera to a vertical, or "down" position. Down viewing is particularly useful while ice fishing or from a dock or stationary boat, for seeing what is directly below the camera, rather than off to the sides.
This is a padded, zippered protective case with built-in sunshield, and a pocket for an auxiliary 12-volt 4.5-amp battery.
Protecting Your FishTV
The FishTV comes with a protective case which must be manually installed. To fit the FishTV into the soft-sided protective case, do the following.
- Completely unwind cable from the cable keeper/handle on top of the unit.
- Disconnect camera cable from rear monitor plug.
- Expand the soft case.
- Unzip all four zippers on the soft case.
- Slide FishTV into the soft case, back first, handle up, inserting handle into slot on top of soft case.
- Fully seat FishTV into soft case, pulling monitor plug through cable keeper slot on top of the case.
- Zip two corners of the soft case half-way, so sunshield flaps remain open.
- Enclose FishTV by first folding side sunshield flaps in, bottom sunshield flap next, then top sunshield flap over bottom sunshield flap.
- Reconnect the camera cable to the monitor then wind the cable back on to the keeper/handle.
- Stow FishTV camera in mesh side pocket
*Note: The external 12-volt battery fits into rear zippered pouch.
FishTV Viewing Tips
Begin underwater viewing by lowering the Fish TV camera to within 1 to 2 feet of the bottom. The bottom provides a solid point of reference that helps you perceive sizes of fish and objects below. The Fish TV camera is set up to view horizontally, so you can see bottom and fish all around your position. Typically, anglers slowly move along, eyes glued to the monitor's ever-changing picture of the underwater terrain.
You can also view vertically- studying bottom and fish straight below. To view vertically, or "downview" simply insert the camera cable into the rear slot on the Stabilizing Fin, which keeps the lens pointing straight toward bottom, as opposed to off to the side. Down viewing works best from a stationary position, and isn't as effective while moving.
In most waters, fish relate to bottom structures. So, while drifting or slow-trolling, you'll need to guide the camera over the ups and downs of bottom contours. You will quickly learn how to "swim" the camera over bottom terrain by retrieving or releasing cable, as depth and boat speed vary. As you move along, you should see on your monitor screen a continuous picture of the passing bottom and the fish-holding watery zone above it.
When viewing over a soft bottom, make sure the camera is actually above the bottom, and not plowing through it. If the camera is digging into the bottom, raise or lower the camera to "look" for it. If your camera becomes snagged, maneuver the boat so the direction of pull is the reverse of what it was when the camera became snagged. A little jiggling or light tugging will usually enable you to back the camera out of a snag. Avoid pulling camera through heavy weed cover or thick brush.
With your Fish TV, you will be fascinated and often surprised by the ever-changing view of underwater scenery: rocks, weeds, other bottom features- and fish!
FishTV Viewing Tips- On the Ice
When testing a new fishing location, you may bore two holes a few feet apart- one for your fishing line, the other for lowering your camera. With the Fish TV you can actually watch as fish move and react to your lure.
Test-fish for a few minutes in different places. It's possible to choose to eliminate potential fishing spots on the basis of seeing or not seeing fish while moving around and prospecting. By watching the monitor and moving one jig/ lure at a time, you will be able to determine which direction you are looking.
The ICE- POD is an adjustable tripod that sets the camera hole, holds the camera cable and is handy accessory for easy adjustment of the camera's direction. MO-POD 2 is a remote- controlled and motorized version of the Ice Pod that yields convenient "no hands" rotation of the camera.
