A gadget too far or the next big thing...?

Will underwater cameras become as common as fishfinders on pike fishing boats before long - or has technology finally gone too far.

Second generation underwater cameras have a 360 degree field of view, meaning you can keep the area around your bait under surveillance, depending on depth and water clarity.

Will they take all the skill and element of the unknown away from fishing, or will they enable us to increase our knowledge of what goes on beneath the surface.
