November Smallmouth Fishing + GoPro Mounts

This weekend I was able to go do some fishing with my dad on a small northern Indiana lake that’s been hot for smallmouth lately.  Unfortunately, the bite has slowed, possibly due to the lake turning over from the cold snap of late.  We were still able to catch some, though not the quantity and quality that he’s been catching there in the past weeks.

Along with the fishing, I was able to test out some mounts that I’ve been building.  All of them are highlighted in this video:

The beginning of the video was a boat-loading time lapse I attempted using the GoPro Suction Cup Mount.  I learned about 52 seconds into the 1 shot per second time lapse that you really should clean off the surface before mounting.  It fell.
