Mine is sitting under the cover on my Tracker for now. Not sure if I will get it out one more time before the freeze. I am trying to talk my brother to go out on the crawdad this weekend. Supposed to be some great weather for this time of the year.
When I lived in New Jersey, I would fish 12 months a year or at least until I couldn't break through the ice anymore.
The bass will still hit lures but the crappie, perch and sunfish always seemed to be more active.
I'll be out as long as there's no ice locking up the river. Even when it does, there are warm water discharges. Here's a video of a recent trip. It flurried on me at the end of the day. I provided some presentation tips for fishing finesse jigs when the river is sub 40 degrees.
Great vids Jeff. The lure is not a jerkbait, it's a Triggerfish. It does a number of things action-wise, and it is actually steerable. You can see more about it at thinktanklures.com or at my facebook page Think Tank Lures. I really like your yak setup. What are you using for camera mount poles?
No GoPro cameras on my boat. I like them, but they don't play well with my Mac. Sony cameras do though, and I have a few. I filmed two episodes of a kayak fishing show that will air on Versus (NBC Sports now), and WFN this past fall. The videographer/producer put GoPro's on different parts of my kayak for alternate angles. Mine can't get wet. I wish I had one that could. Filming in the rain is tough. I keep it in a dry bag and pull it out when someone is hooked up.
The camera mounts are all made by Yakattack. I did the whole "make it myself" thing for a while, and after getting the Yakattack stuff, I wish I had it before I filmed 5 DVDs worth of footage. Still working on the Winter River Smallmouth DVD. Going tomorrow in the cataraft.
It may not be the quality camera your looking for Jeff, But I just got a Kodak Playsport which is waterproof down to 10 feet.
Of course Eastmen Kodak just filed for Chapter 11 today sending the stock to .50 ( Yes, That's Cents).
So there may be some bargains but most likely not a lot, or any support down the road.
I am looking forward to viewing the Kayak Fishing Show. Let me know when it will be airing when you get a chance.
I may look into the Kodak. I need something that will go underwater. The GoPro's are so versatile. I just wish they worked well with Mac software. I have a case for my small Sony, and it works, but I really have to go under with it to know what I got. I do a lot of it in the summer, but this time of year it's kind of rough. Here's a video that shows some of the underwater stuff I shot with the case on the Sony.
