You're welcome to come fishing with me anytime bud Last Sunday Charter guys on the radio saying they've got 6 kings in the first hour, we've got 4 lines out and have 2 barracuda. We were working same depth but apparently they've got the fish trained.

This Deerfield one was a lot better before Irma. The angle on it now is different. Before you could see a lot of the pier itself in the background when the visibility was good. The schools of baitfish were amazing, literally thousands of goggle eyes and pilchards would hold on it with snook, lookdown, and jacks cruising through them. It's still fun to watch but not quite the same as it was.

I snapped this bait ball on the Deerfield cam streaming on the tv.

I watched this most of the day. The camera moves around some so the angle changes. I saw exactly what you described several times today. I also saw a school of 20 or more tarpon cruise through. Those bait balls parted like the red sea. I watched it panning around quite a bit this morning then settled into one view for most of the day.

I'll have to start watching it again then. I used to almost always have it open in a tab while working on the computer in the mornings. I do think the old camera mounting location was different though, seemed closer to the bottom and had a view of the pier going back toward shore.

Wonder what it would take to set something like this up. Any of the inlets would be great, especially when the snook stack up in them.

Any tech savy nerds know what I need to get to do this? My dock is about 30' from my router.
Wifi will not work through more than an inch or so of water, so that's out. The Deerfield one has some sort of automatic wiping device that cleans it off. Like an automated underwater squeegee. You see it go by sometimes. I think you would have to clean it every day if you didn't have that. I'm guessing professional grade camera systems are the only thing that will work in this application.

Right now. Looks like the view you’re talking about.

Yep that's the perfect angle
I'd checked it a couple times and it always seemed to have half the screen obscured by a piling. But the view they have now is great, visibility has been awesome the past few days as well.

Edit: Just as I was typing this, there's a diver there under the pier.

Don't know about the specific Deerfield cam, but Teens4Oceans had a self wiping camera housing at the 2011 DEMA in Orlando.
Their engineering partner has some specs on the website but I didn't see any pricing.
