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.

See More, Catch More: 4 Reasons Every Angler Needs the GoFish Cam

Posted by Brandon Austin on Aug 22, 2019 4:32:00 PM

If you’re an angler, it’s a virtual certainty that you’ve stared at the water wondering: How many fish are actually down there? What species, and how big are they? Perhaps most importantly: Why aren’t they hitting? Without the assistance of technology, it’s difficult to know any of that for sure.

Fish finders and other tools are steps in the right direction. Without a true visual tool, however, what’s happening under the surface was destined to remain a mystery—at least before the GoFish Cam came along. 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.

Posted by Brandon Austin on Dec 30, 2018 11:29:00 AM

Fishing can be a challenging hobby for both new anglers and seasoned pros alike. Although some people may think it’s as simple as throwing a lure into the water and waiting for fish to arrive, most of us know it’s not that simple. One big challenge you’ll face as an angler is dealing with different water conditions. I’m not referring so much to the calmness of the water (or lack thereof), what I’m referring to is temperature, oxidation, and clarity.
