Default Who needs an artificial reef?

Found this one last trip. Unreal amount of fish. We couldn't get through the triggers, gave up trying to fish after a few minutes. GoPro told the rest of the story. Not too far out of Destin in state water. I think it just might be a spring, there appeared to be about a 10' deep downward spike when you drove over it. Will go back in a few days and drop the GoPro several places around the epicenter.

How are you rigging up your GoPro? I would love to start dropping my GoPro, but I’m a little hesitant because I worry about stability and making sure it comes back up lol

Here's my creations. Fins were for directional stability.

MK1 had the weight built in. Rigged to rod-n-reel, one camera mount.

Just make sure the fin is lined up exactly with centerline or else you'll get a swimming effect on the unit. That'll screw up a video in a hurry.

Didn't notice that before! Sure would like to add him to my "I've caught" list.
