Amazing Under Ice Footage of Hundreds of Yellow Perch
Video was taken with a GoPro Hero 4 camera using a specialized underwater housing which supports HDMI out, and USB power out. All contained in a sealed unit with no leaking, the wires travel up to a high definition television right inside our ice fishing hut. From there we can monitor and record what is happening beneath the ice hut. You actually watch live as the fish strikes your lure. It can sure be quite amusing, especially for friends and family watching with you.
The Yellow Perch is a fresh water fish all throughout North America, known as a pan fish they are fished all over, especially targeted by children as they are an easy catch. They are also prey for a majority of fish species lurking in the lakes and rivers. When you have perch around you, likely there is larger fish moving in to feed on them. Perch swim in schools, like seen in this video. They will all be around your lures, then eventually leave to move on somewhere. Then the screen is empty.
This footage was sped up two times to give for a quicker viewing.
You can see the bottom of ice in the video also, meaning we are only about 8 feet deep of water here.
Video was taken on Chemong Lake, near Bridgenorth Ontario Canada in February 2017
