    Two days ago I went fishing, with unexpected after cast to shallow, the bass hit my lure and yanked the rod out of my hand into water. I was on the dock about 8 feet deep. My setup should float up but Bass still on the line and pulled my rod under water. I jumped down to save my setup (Daiwa Tatula rod and Kage LT 2000). I emptied everything but forgot my iPhone XR in back pocket. By the time I knew my phone under water was a little late. I contact a local guy with underwater drone. He posted all kind of underwater footage in our community, like fish, finding things. We setup the next day for operation. By the time I got the phone back was more than 15 hours. I dried my phone for about 3 hours in warm wind tunnel. The phone still works. Thanks to the young man who saved my phone. Of course I donate some money toward his next project.

    I once borrowed an underwater camera from a friend, the imagery below was similarly murky. One might think an underwater camera would be useful for finding fish but I did not see fish at all. Good for finding a phone or rod and reel that fell overboard though.

    You gotta see his footage video and picture. Here is sample.

    If I have one I would use to look for structure on the bottom, look for where Bass usually school up and most importantly look for school of crappie under boat slip.
