Posted by Cody Solberg on Jan 16, 2019 2:01:46 PM

Have you tried using your GoFish Cam under the ice? I’ve been using this camera under my tip-ups the last few times I’ve been out on the ice, and I haven’t been disappointed! There’s nothing more exciting than going through your footage and watching a 36-inch pike come up and smoke your bait. Not only do you get to experience amazing fish strikes, you get a video that lasts a lifetime.

How Water Conditions Affect Your Ability To Find Fish

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. All of these aspects can have a huge impact on your ability to catch fish. Keep reading to learn more about water conditions while fishing.

How To Locate and Catch Striped Bass In Freshwater Lakes and Reservoirs

Posted by Meng Xyong on Jul 6, 2018 3:46:00 PM

It felt just like another striped bass that morning. Reeling in a catch from 50ft of water, it was heavy and with no real fight in it. Finally, when I had it thirty feet from the boat, I saw a flash of its side and that’s when the line peeling began. With the rod bent over, I held on as the reel screamed. I had just hooked into my personal best striped bass coming in at 27lbs fishing at San Luis Reservoir, a fresh water
reservoir. What an awesome experience!

A Picture Doesn't Tell 1000 Words -Why Fishing is Stuck In a Photo Rut

Posted by Dusty McAdon on Apr 27, 2018 5:00:00 PM

For the longest time, the angling community has shared their fishing experiences via word of mouth. How else would you be able to describe the experience with the conditions and the details?

Even if you were lucky enough to have a friend standing there with a camera or smartphone to get a photo of you holding the fish, there's still not much to go off of about the story of that catch.

For myself, sharing our experience with the community is important. Every time that I listen to a fellow angler or read a thread on a fishing forum about a certain angling experience, I tend to learn something. Any good angler learns from their own experience, and the word of others as well.

With all this detail in every story and in every catch, the pictures of the catch that anglers have shared contain a nice shot of the fish but doesn’t tell anything of how it was caught, what that battle was like, what was used, or how the fish was even hooked up. No good story started with the end and yet a picture of your catch only provides just that. Anglers need a better tool, something that can tell their story for them. For me, it's a GoFish Cam. With it you can actually capture and share the entire angler’s experience from the cast, the bite, the hook set, the fight and landing the fish. GoFish Cam allows you to capture video of that fish, full of life, in its environment.

Instead of showing a friend a picture of a fish and having to tell a full story, try capturing a video of that catch, let them live the story versus hearing it, and see the difference in their reaction!

As a last point, what’s funny is I’ve focused on what happens if you get a catch… but what about if you don’t end up landing it? “Let me tell you a story… of the biggest fish that got away!” How many times have you heard that before? Well, there’s never really been a way to actually know what that was or what happened… until now!

Check out a clip of a big one getting away here:
