I recently mounted a rod holder on my kayak, and discovered my mini tripod fits nicely in the holder. One of my major goals this year is to capture a strike, fight and landing on video so this setup will help out immensely.
I set out yesterday with the whole package (kayak, rods, camera and tripod) to Banner Marsh, a local bass fishing hot spot. The results: not so good, but I made a video anyway just to say I did it. Ice-out fishing isn't when my angling ability shines, but I get out and make a go of it every year. It seems like every year I also swear to not wet a line until May.
Anyway, I've editing minutes of footage down to a mere 150 seconds of highlights. If you have about two and a half minutes of your life to waste, I suggest you watch below.
Obviously the day was a skunk, but I couldn't resist creating a goofy video of "highlights." Hopefully you laughed as much as my wife did - I'm not sure if she was laughing with me or not. I'm trying to imagine how this would work out with fish catching footage, but it'll have to wait until next time (at least).
I'm not one to leave you salivating for good videos, so here is one of our cat videos. Everyone loves cat videos.
