Thank s to JJ Slater I was introduced to the Troll Pro underwater camera housing! JJ brought two TrollPros on our first shoot together in the Spring of 2011 and got some spectacular footage. Basically the TrollPro houses a GoPro HD HERO camera and is towed behind the boat in front of the lures or baits. It is the bees knees!
First fish one morning was a Dorado on the left rigger line and I thought, “cool, nice Dorado”! When we downloaded the footage we realized that there were some 63 Yellofin Tuna behind the lures and you can view the Dorado coming into the back of the spread and then hit the lure! AWESOME.
But hold on Fish Fans, in early 2012 GoPro is introducing a WiFi “backpack” for the camera that can control record starts and stops BUT more importantly can LIVE STREAM the footage to your iPhone or Android! Will that be SICK or what??? You will no longer wonder what is really behind the boat!!! Watch for some “epic” video front the GoPro/ TrollPro set up on Season 2 of Fish the Baja!!!
Check out the Killer Whale that checks out the GoPro Troll Pro set up!!!
