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.

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.
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.
