Aqua-Vu® Cameras spy on springtime fish movements at WolfRiverCam.com
Crosslake, MN (April 9, 2019) – You know the old adage: A bad day fishing beats a good day . . . But what if you could be on the water—or, even more interesting, go underwater—while at work?
One of the coolest ways to feed your need to fish, right from the comfort of your cubicle, Wolf River Cam plays an around-the-clock live video stream of underwater fish migrations. Each spring, the mega-popular fish cams showcase walleyes, sturgeon, and a variety of other cool species swimming past the lens. Right now, legions of walleyes are making their annual spawning trek, followed by prehistoric lake sturgeon a week or so later.
New Multi-Vu HD System features Auto-Clear Technology, optimizing underwater visibility in all water conditions.
For the past decade, underwater camera innovator Aqua-Vu has provided the optics and ultra-clear video images at each of three different monitoring sites via www.wolfrivercam.com.
“The Aqua-Vu cameras continue to be incredibly durable and reliable, even in these demanding river environments,” says Gary Bunnell, owner and founder of Wolf River Cam. “We run Multi-Vu XD cameras at two of our sites, while a third high-definition Multi-Vu Pro camera will be deployed at our Shiocton 1 location.”

“When the spring run begins, huge numbers of walleyes and other fish travel from Lake Winnebago,” says Bunnell. “Between mid-March and the end of April, our live cams receive about two million hits. It’s an awesome resource for anglers hoping to catch the peak of the walleye run. But it’s equally fascinating for folks to pull up on their desktop, phone or tablet and eavesdrop on this amazingly productive waterway. You never know what you might see.”
Now in its eleventh season, Bunnell says he’s been amazed by the performance of the Aqua-Vu cameras. “We’ve used the Aqua-Vu systems for hundreds of continuous hours in extreme conditions without any problems. That’s way more time or abuse than a single angler could ever use an Aqua-Vu in a lifetime of fishing.
“The clarity of the new HD camera is exceptional,” he notes. “But the most amazing advantage is that it delivers superior color in low light, even down in 10- to 14-feet of river water. Down here, where visibility is limited to a foot, the HD camera can see to at least four feet out. No other camera we’ve used gathers enough light to display bright color in dark water like this. The Aqua-Vu HD is already showing folks amazing views of the river.”
New third generation HD Aqua-Vu cameras feature exclusive Auto-Clear Technology, specialized firmware that auto-adjusts the underwater image, even in dark and stained water. The result is a super-refined, clarified underwater video image, altered as light, color and clarity conditions change. New Aqua-Vu HD series cameras also feature refined low-light sensors that preserve a bright, clear picture, even as light fades by depth, and during low-light periods.
Pre-loaded on all Aqua-Vu Multi-Vu Pro, HD10i Pro, HD10i, HD7i Pro and HD7i high-definition underwater viewing systems, visibility enhancing AutoClear Technology allows anglers to view underwater habitat even in darker, dirtier water environments.
