I used a Sony video camera mounted to a baseball cap (hat cam) to capture a wider view of the experience of fishing from a W500.
Until June 21st the weather and the fishing in my part of upstate New York were extremely challenging. Strong winds, even early in the morning, were unrelenting. And the bass I was catching were rarely over a pound. Then, almost magically, the first day of summer brought stunning changes. The mornings were calm and the fish put on some serious weight!
The action begins saturday morning at Rudd Pond, including a largemouth that is close to 4 pounds!
For all you Wavewalk owners, the saddle itself is 12 inches wide… a handy reference for quick measurements.
These were all caught between 6:45 and 9:45 (I just look at the time-created on the jpg files).
Stay tuned, I’ll post PART 2, fishing with Al Lunn, in a day or so.
I was able to beat the wind for a couple of hours and catch a few fish at Mudge Pond.
The spring weather in the Northeast has been challenging to say the least! It was once again, windy, windy, windy but still a beautiful day so out I went in my W500.
Here’s what happened, short but sweet.
Notice that, even though the camera is mounted directly to the Wavewalk’s gunnel, the shots are rock-steady. This was shot with my Nikon Coolpix AW100, no stabilizers and no stabilization added during editing or by YouTube.
I get a chance to go fishing with life-long fisherman Al Lunn from New York in his new Wavewalk fishing kayak. The day was very windy even though it doesn’t look like it in the movie because we kept moving to protected areas. Despite the wind, Al stood and cast from his W500 like it was second nature.
