My 1st Kayaking Video

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, check out my first video of me kayak fishing.  Unfortunately my battery was only 50% and didn't get to record half of my catches.  I caught a couple on film and lost a couple others.  I was slinging around chatterbaits, crankbaits, and lipless all day and had the water to myself (except for geese).  Feedback is appreciated!

Nice vid! Here's my only recommendation, take the music out. I would way rather listen to what's going on in the video than music.

Nicely Done.

Music or no music - it's your clip - offer it as you like.

 My personal preference is to hear what you have to say about what's happening as well as the ambient sounds of the environment.

Either way - Keep them coming.

Nice work!  I'm like the few who have commented.  I like nature sounds and your narration; however, there are others who will like the music best.  You should make the videos the way you want.  I will still watch them!

Well unfortunately the gopro session doesnt do well capturing narration at that distance and I had music playing in background.  I would use headphones but I feel disconnected when I do.  Also the video is made for social media consumption and a large segment of my friends probably dont appreciate nature sounds as much as bass resource members, but I will try it out next video.

It looks good, I don't mind music. I'm too add music to video since I'm not a talker and I'm afraid no one would understand me anyway.

Nicely done, and at the risk of being redundant I'm also in the "prefer no music" camp but if you are working towards a social media following I can understand why you added it. 

 

That being said, life is too short to worry about the little stuff, do what makes you happy!

What I like about music only is that I can mute it, and just watch.  My overall preference is for unobtrusive music overdubbed the natural sounds.

 

Nice video, love the reactions to dropped fish.  I feel the pain!

I agree to most above. However, I think music in a video works best for three things: intro, transitions, and outro!

Looks good!  Thanks!

 

In case it wasn't said above, I could do without the music :)

 

Would love a little narration and a little nature and ambient noise.  Oh, and I want to hear what was said at 1:08 and 1:25....:)

Those mouths are soft right now.  Notice my two lost fish just seem to let go.  Usually the lure and rod pops when coming unbottoned.

 

Later in day I caught a squeaker on a lipless and he wasnt even hooked.  The front and back treble lodged on both sides of mouth.  Last year I boat flipped a bass that was never hook.  Hook point was still buried in plastic.

Very nice effort, thanks for sharing. Not a big fan of techno pop music or whatever that sound is, however, your moves are well choreographed to the sound at certain points, particularly around the 2:40 mark.

As was stated earlier, it's your video; so you put into it what you like.  Also, as was also stated, the sound can be muted by the viewer.  That being said, some graphics on the screen would be useful to explain what is happening - i.e., what you are using, date, time of day, etc.

Easy to be a critic and much harder to do the work; I know, so thank you, and I admire the time and effort you took to do this.

I considered adding details but my initial tsrget audience wouldnt understand/care and secondly my computer has difficulty handling programs that offer those features.  Definantely a plan for future releases.
