    Great footage!

    Hence the reason my youtube channel isn’t all that good. I’m a fisherman not a videographer.

    Funny right there. You need to find a full time camera guy on a non-fishing forum. Ha! Filming is tough when the bite is on.

    Is the "cameraman" having to look through a viewfinder? More of a Go-Pro set up?

    It's good to have family capability. It's the one thing I don't *truly* have but perhaps some day. Have a great time hunting those striper - I won't be back out for a few weeks.

    Throwing swimbaits is both fun and easy. Hoping to shoot a video this year to break down my delta striper fishing...its just that nobody wants to film when the fishing is good, including me! Anyone have any video filming skills out there? I need a full time camera guy!

    Glad to inspire others. I know your day(s) are coming and soon. How'd the "semi--new" sled work out?
