Testing out the GoPro
 
Took the Gopro out for it's maiden voyage with the chest strap. I'm pretty pleased with it. Gina was dragging a small Clouser behind a bobber, sorry "strike indicator":D

Lol, ooops. All good now. Anyone know how to embed the video so you don't have to open a Youtube page to watch it?

It's pretty cool. As a rule the chest mount records what your hands are doing. I find it a lot more comfortable than the head mount.

That's great feedback. Do you think the chest mount would get in the way with my sling pack?

I use an Orvis sling pack, it works very well. All of the straps on the chest harness are made of elastic bands so it fits very comfortably. You barely feel it.

Cool. That's exactly what I have.

I have the chest pack and really like the view when your reeling in a fish . At first I thought my hands would be in the way but that doesn't seem to be true . I'll have to post the Peacock Bass video I got. Nice pickerel ! They eat all the flys no discrimination there! They take nice underwater shots also!

I haven't tried the underwater shots yet. Heading to Sandy Hook after work, if I have enough daylight I'll try to shoot some more.
