Right now I have a GoPro on a chest mount and i was wanting to hear other ways I could film myself fishing other than with my chest mount. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips. Thanks

Man there are a million ways. I see a lot using plastic tubing/pipe. Making high vantage points etc to give the perception of a chopper or drone lol. Heck YouTube would only have a few hundred videos on this I bet. I would do a search there for a start.

On a boat? kayak? shore?

Not to hijack your thread, but I have a GoPro I've used to shoot videos of fly fishing, bass fishing, and ice fishing.

For fly/ shore fishing, usually use a head mount, tried the chest mount, but found it to be too bulky and confining, and was never happy with the video quality, since you'd see my hands, and the pole, and almost nothing else. This is what head mount looks like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cggaVIPYRbk

For ice fishing, I started out with a head mount, which works okay, but I got the tripod mount. IF you fish out of a kayak, you can buy one of those cheap, flexible tripods, and wrap the legs around one of the railings of the kayak. Here's what the tripod mount looks like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kMkhN19U4u4

For bass/ boat fishing, I like to use the pole mount, and mount the camera on my rear deck seat pedestal, and just remove the seat. Have also experimented with the suction cup mountain, that I mount to my windshield. It works okay, but it's hard to get the entire action into the scene: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2zBA1PA2DA
