Texas lakes all have an issue with turbidity. Turbidity is the invisible suspended particles in water. In most Texas lakes, you will have fairly good light penetration to about 6 feet. After 6 feet the amount of light that penetrates is greatly reduced. The degree of turbidity in the water also effects the light penetration, as does rain, runoff, and winds.
Some lakes may have slightly better visibility but not what is often required in order to run a camera. I spent more than 30 years as a SCUBA diver and instructor. I have done a lot of salvage in lakes in Texas and Oklahoma. By the time you reach 20 feet of depth, there is little light and visibility can be a few inches.
The cameras can be fun in northern states and the ocean, but not locally.
