A small suggestion. I think the video would look better with the fishing seat down or out of the way.

This was my very first try using the Gopro and I have since changed the aim of the camera. I didn't have an LCD backpac on the camera yet to be able to see exactly where it was pointed. With my mistake back, the fishing seat has to stay LOL. Aiming it higher where it captures more of me solves most of the problem however. Now if I can just figure out where the bass have moved. The last trip this week I got skunked for the first time this year :dazed-7: This lake is actually loaded with giant bass and it is very rare to be able to catch all these small keeper bass. 14-18 in slot with only one kept over 18 inches. I was really wanting some small bass for the freezer and for a month and a half the little ones have been biting really good in the 2-6 foot depth next to 15-20 ft of water. Caught 30 this past Sat, only 2 Sun, and 0 Weds. Pretty much identical weather and water temps. 68 air 58 water :Idontknow:

Cool video!

One thing that may help if you are going to keep the chair is to mount the camera a little higher. I bought an 8foot PVC pipe...cemented a PVC "T" at the end of it, and then glued a go pro mount to that. I wrapped the other end of the pipe with foam and stick it into my rod holders at the center of the boat. This gives an elevated view and let's you kind of look down on the action. Just an idea.

Here's an example...forget the fish (it's tiny), but you can see how the elevated view shows the action pretty well. You can see the individual targets I'm pitching to...
