Geat Lakes Downrigger Cameras. In 2011 we started running cameras on our down-riggers. Since that time we have learned much about what was actually happening under the surface. We hope to share our knowledge of “Down-cams” with other anglers thru our website and by doing live seminars. We have much to learn and hope that you will share your knowledge as well.

To get a stable camera you need a true running down-rigger weight. We use a “Torpedo” shaped weight with camera mounted “Shooting BACK” or “Shooting UP”. We have used both Contour and GoPro cameras with good results.
Several factors determine when you can use the cams. They include Water clarity and light penetration. The middle of the day provides the best lighting for deep down-camming.
