Getting into making YouTube vids of my crappie catchn trips.....

Any of y'all ever video your trip?

Anybody got recommendations on cameras, good or bad?

Been looking at the GoPro Hero 5......

There's a few guys on YouTube pushing for me to get into it & I'm almost ready to take on the challenge & show them how it's done...

No you won't be able to see my location so get that out of your minds....LOL

I'll be attaching the camera to a 10 or 12ft pole looking down so you'll get to see me, the water & the feesh fighting.....

Any info would help....

If you look at this video of mine (from last week):


That's what you'll get with a GoPro. Wide angle lens, great picture clarity and long life per battery. (about 3 hours on a battery, so you'll want to have two or three batteries for a whole day on the water)

Your biggest problem with the GoPro ... It's VERY wide angle. On the video, pay attention to the close ups of the fish. To get the close ups, I am holding the fish 2 to 4 inches from the camera. When I am wading, I am no more than 20 feet from the camera. If you put the camera on a pole, you'll have to figure the right height to get sufficient detail. Personally, I don't like anything sticking up on my boat. I'd get it caught on trees and other over hangs way too often.

Get after it killa.

I have posted short videos but have never edited videos on YouTube.

I use Windows' Movie Maker program to edit my videos. It's a free program, if you're using a Windows OS.

Hey Mike you got any experience messing round with wireless mics?

06-05-2017, 06:55 AM
Microphones? No. All wireless transceivers are basically the same, so what issues are you having?

06-05-2017, 12:20 PM
No issues, I'm still in research mode....

When I make my move I want all good moves....:DancingChicken:

OH, you mean wireless microphones for your videos !!! I don't know what I was thinking, my mind went to the electrical aspects and repair work :offtopic:

I know my GoPro doesn't have a remote microphone capability. I guess you'll need something like that, if you're going to mount the camera 10 or 20 feet away from you.
OR ... you can "narrate" the video. Many video editing software allows you to narrate over the recording. This allows you to talk a more "scripted" narrative of what's happening on screen ... and you don't have to worry about wind noise, equipment failures or wetting, etc.

If I ever made a fishing video it would definitely have to be narrated. Not proud of this but I cuss like a sailor. When I miss a good fish or lose one in the sticks, I cuss. If I land a good one I cuss.
I'd like to see the videos Mr. Killa. I don't remember the last time I caught a crappie. But, my cousins wife landed a monster a couple months ago. Gonna see if he still has the photo. Pretty sure you would be impressed. Yep, I cussed when I saw this monster. Narrate.

Thanks Mike, yes I've found limited info on wireless mics for the GoPro cameras....

AthensMike you're gonna enjoy my vids then cause if it's in the game it's gonna be in the vid.....LOL
It won't be too bad until I start talkn bout some of the shoe clerks we have to deal with on the lake.....
