4 Killer Tips for Improving Your Trolling Success

Posted by Brandon Austin on Nov 21, 2019 9:30:00 AM

Trolling can serve as the boating equivalent of napping on a riverbank with a straw hat over your face, and a bell attached your rod—you throw one or two lines in, set the boat on cruise, and kick back. No judgment, that’s a better way to spend the day than most and is sometimes exactly what’s called for. These tips, however, are for a more active, engaged breed of trolling. It’s about the kind of trolling employing an underwater fishing camera, dynamic use of the bait, and analysis of conditions. If that’s the kind of trolling you’re interested in, the kind far more likely to catch fish, read on.

Why the GoFish Cam Is Great for Fishing Charter Captains

Posted by Brandon Austin on Oct 25, 2019 4:05:28 PM

Running a fishing charter business is a dream career for many anglers. There’s no question that those running charters for a living got into the business because they love fishing, but it’s still a job and jobs are accompanied by responsibilities. Chief among those responsibilities is keeping the business profitable. Doing so requires consistently drawing customers to your charter, which means it’s imperative to stand out from the competition. One great way to draw in customers that comes with a ton of benefits is allowing them to take home a video of their experience to share online and promote your business. Rigging up each client’s rod with an in-line underwater fishing camera from GoFish Cam helps accomplish this.

A Video Is Worth 10,000 Casts: A Camera, Commitment, and Other Trophy Musky Musts

Posted by Brandon Austin on Aug 30, 2019 11:10:00 AM

In accordance with the apparent unspoken law of fishing writing, the phrase “the fish of 10,000 casts” must appear at least once in any article about fishing for muskellunge. The problem with that cliché is that it reinforces the belief that a musky really is that hard to catch. That can end up turning away would-be musky-slayers who could be having a blast fighting these monstrous fish. 

But muskies are not the fish of 10,000 literal casts—or at least they don’t have to be. Like their pike cousins, they are aggressive ambush predators that will eat anything they can fit in their massive, toothy maws. Armed with the right gear, some reliable advice (research is a must), and a few new tricks (like an underwater fishing camera), you can be landing trophy muskies in short order.

Now, you can finally get a window to the other side, the world of the fish you’re stalking, by taking advantage of the GoFish Cam underwater fishing camera. The following are just a few of the ways GoFish Cam has changed everything.
