    That was cool. How far behind the boat was the GoPro? How did you rig it?

    Yep, pretty cool. You might look into using a colored filter to reduce the green saturation a little. That and depending on how you have it rigged, a little closer to the lure might prove for some better video. The "second scene" was really cool with multiple fish milling about.

    The setup is still a work in progress. I built my own version of the TrollPro with 2" ABS pipe and a 2" X 4" ABS reducer. The GoPro was 10' behind the boat, the dodger and bait were 15'. I'll try next with the release attached to the ABS in hopes that the camera tracks the bait better.

    It will be a bit, it's in the boat and the boat is in Seward.
