Does anyone use them? How well do they work? Thinking about getting one for searching spots and I think my kids would enjoy it.

If you are in a clear water lake they work pretty good. The kids will love it. get you a 6ft piece of PVC pipe to attach the camera to, so you can point the camera where you want to look.

I had a guide on Lake Lanier (Ryan Coleman) who used the Aquavu to see fish in deep brushpiles. This was 15 years ago. Lanier is a pretty clear lake and we could see fish in brush in about 20ft of water but it was still a little murky. Aggravating to see all the big spots hanging around your bait and not even paying attention. It was still a lot of fun and kids should enjoy it. Can't think of any lakes around here (North Texas) besides maybe Texoma that has water as clear as Lanier.

You could get a GoPro and attach it to a rope and ease it down to a brush pile and view it on your iPad. Exact same technology, only cheaper if you have an iPhone or iPad. Plus, if you damage your GoPro and do their $49 a year program, they'll send you a new one.

Lots of guys have purchased a Color-C-Lector, helicopter lures, Dancin-eels, HydroWave, Livingston electronic lures…..”for their kids”! Sorry to the OP on your serious question. Had too.🤷🏻‍♂️😀 Seriously though, your kids will have a hoot with one especially wading around in the shallows looking around.

Only a few lakes in Texas I think would be clear enough for it. Places I like to fish it's amazing to see my 1/2oz spinnerbait in 8" of water.
