    I was at a tackle store today and saw a nifty gadget... it was an underwater video camera that could go as deep as 100ft. It came with an attachment for a downrigger cable. I'm wondering if anyone has experience with such novelties? I'd love to hear a report... I'm not sure they'd be all that...

The quality of the bar (i.e. fewer rocks + debris to snag tackle on)? The names/popularity? Something else? A combination of one or more these things? I fished Jones...
