This is an insane camera array for bass fishing and it’s going to give crazy angles in a simple setup. Yolotek POWERStick, POWERStation, and DBarrel all set up with a GoPro camera. This gives me a mobile platform to get angles on fishing all over the boat no holds barred. Perfect for fishing trips and telling you what’s happening fishing for bass here in Florida and all over. Did I mention it gets some great fishing aerial shots. Capture all t he tips and techniques with this camera setup and I’m just getting started!

This is the best way to get great audio from your action camera and the best shot when fishing in POV or first person perspective situations like fishing. This rig is comfortable, adaptable, portable and light weight allowing you to shoot for extended periods of time without changing batteries.

I film video for when fishing for bass every time I’m on the water and it took some time to figure out a camera rig that offered the shot and audio I was looking for. This is what I came up with, hope its something that can work for you when fishing from the bank, from the boat, or even when shooting general videos highlighting your fishing exploits.

Setup is super easy and links to everything in the video are down below. Not going to lie, was holding this video back for awhile as I think it’ll really change the way people shoot video when out fishing but as usual I’m always down with sharing what I learn to help other anglers get better video catching bass!!!

Capture it all. This is not a cooking video. Fidget for the best video. Breaking content. Punching for fish the best way with tungsten and all you need to fish.

Fishing for bass with hair jigs is awesome. This is not me generalizing, this is not a conventional video. This is my experience on the water using hair jigs to target offshore bass on Florida lakes.

I’ve caught a lot of fish over 7lbs using hair jigs. I only need 2 sizes, 5/8 and 3/4. I’m usually targeting largemouth bass in 13-30ft of water and those weights, even with wind and current, tend to cover all the fishing bases. Color wise, it’s simple – white. I prefer Gambler’s JTK Hair Jig which comes in a Shad color that basically incorporates white with a touch of olive green which is perfect for mimicking shad and other bait fish. If there’s one huge key to the fishing technique that I’ve found in the past 2 years it’s that a hair jig is the perfect hard bait fishing tackle for targeting suspended fish. Fish anywhere from 2 feet to 12 feet off the bottom. It takes some practice to dial in the retrieve and keep the bait in the strike zone but when things come together you’ll know you’ve figured it out!

Had an absolutely killer day fishing a hair jig on a super cold day in Florida. Caught around 25lbs of bass targeting suspended pre spawn fish in deeper water. Used a very light or soft rod – a 7ft crankbait rod paired up with 12lbs flourocarbon and and a Shimano 6:3:1 speed reel. The key was to reel the bait upward while slightly moving the rod tip in a flicking motion. Then let the jig pendulum back to the bottom without feeding it line. Here’s all the stuff I was using:

Had my littler brother down for some fishing and he caught his personal best largemouth bass at 8lbs longlining a crankbait. He was stoked and so was I but little did we know that PB would only last a couple days when we would double up on near 9lbs giants together. Stay tuned for the second part of the vid where we catch more giant bass during his trip to Florida!

Want to step up the quality and content of your fishing videos – start shooting stock shots when you’re on the water fishing to tell viewers more about what you’re doing, how you’re doing it, why you’re doing, and just flat out make for a better story.

Always run that camera even when you don’t think it’s worth it – trust me it’s worth it and will come in handy down the road when editing!

Double up on an a rig with 2 big fish. This is what fun looks and smells like. Picasso Lures Alabama Rig paired up with the best swimbait for these deals – a Gambler Big EZ mixed with EZ Swimmers. Slow roll it on your local winter school with a few speed changes and you’ll hook up hard. Fishing is fun, catching 2 at once is better.
