Since fishing kayaks are now much more roomy and stable than ever before it means anglers are also capable of taking out more equipment with them. 
A lot of anglers still prefer keeping things as simple as possible, which is fine, but many others have discovered the thrill of methods such as "pole-camming."
Depending on where you fish it can be difficult to see bass and other fish beyond a few feet of water. Many things affect water clarity, such as surface glare, wave action, and planktonic veils, not to mention the cover provided by flooded trees, matted vegetation, and boat docks. These dark impenetrable spots tend to be a haven for big fish as even extra clear and calm water or polarized sunglasses won't help much to see what they hide. This is where pole-camming can be a complete game-changer and why many anglers are turning to Aqua-Vu.
These anglers connect the housing of underwater cameras, such as the Aqua-Vu HD series or 715C to the end of a telescopic pole. Angling push-poles, like the SuperStick, fits neatly into a kayak's rod storage and can be connected to underwater cameras using an XD Pole Adapter. These can then be used to get a clear view of what is happening below the surface of the water. Expert anglers like Kim Stricker who hosts Hook 'N Look TV is one of the people who are firm believers in pole-camming. According to Stricker, it not only allows him to get a better understanding of the terrain but the visual intel about bass positioning is also invaluable when it comes to lure selection. Also, he has stated his surprise at the incorrect perception many anglers have about the use of underwater cameras in water that isn't extra clear. In his experience, the Aqua-Vu can give a nice clean underwater picture even in water that looks stained to the eyes. Oftentimes a few feet of visibility is also all that is needed to confirm the presence of fish or baitfish in dirty water.
Check out the Aqua-Vu underwater camera range on the official website (https://www.aquavu.com/aqua-vu-shop/underwater-cameras/series/HD-Series), where you'll also find accessories like the XD Pole Adaptor (https://www.aquavu.com/XD_Pole). Be sure to let us know in the comments or on the forum if you make use of this method for your kayak fishing or if you prefer leaving the heavy gear at home and keeping things natural.
