Underwater cameras

GoFish Camera Kickstarter

I’ve always been a fan of underwater fishing footage. I even started making my own housing to put my GoPro in, but this little camera looks like a much better idea at a fraction of the cost of a GoPro.

With 275 backers and only 24 days ago, this project is very close to being fully funded. I have personally pledged money to this project and I am pumped to see the final product. If you want to fund this project and get your own GoFish Camera, visit Kickstarter!

Last Minute Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Father’s Day is just around the corner, but there is still plenty of time to get your dad a great gift. Here are a few of our last-minute picks that will make any fishing dad happy!

Every fisherman needs a good camera to capture special moments on the water. There are several great options for relatively inexpensive underwater cameras this year. The Canon PowerShot D30 and the Panasonic Lumix TS5 are our top picks. Both are capable of taking great photos and 1080p HD video. While the Lumix TS5 cannot be taken as deep, it does offer some great features such as WIFI connectivity to your smart phone. This means you can easily share your photos on all of your favourite social networking sites without capturing the photos to your computer.

I never go fishing without a knife. I don’t use one too often, except for cutting line and occasionally filleting fish, but you never know when a good blade will come in handy. Rapala offers some great small fillet knifes and recently added blades from Marttiini. The new Marttiini Curly Birch Folding knife with a three-inch blade will be a perfect fit for dad’s tackle box.

We have talked about sunglasses being fishing’s most important tool in the past and every fisherman should have a pair. Dizm sunglasses offer both functionality and style and to top it off they are eco-friendly. What more could a dad ask for?

No matter how many fishing lures your dad has, he could always use more! Among our favourites are the new Rapala Scatter Rap and the Live Target Baitball. The Scatter Rap offers an incredible evasive action and the Baitball gives the appearance of multiple baitfish in a single lure. Both are available in several styles and patterns.

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!

Fallin’ for the Miss

The Bassassins are back again with another video fishing the mighty Mississippi river right here in Ontario.

“Fallin for the Miss” is showcasing sport fishing on the Mississippi River in Ontario. We are truly blessed to have such fantastic fishery right at our doorstep. This clip features the usual suspects that are to be caught this time a year. The smallmouth bass are gaining girth and feeding aggressively, the Walleye really seem to enjoy the cooler days of fall too, and pike are lurking around every corner all year long. Autumn is a wicked time to be out and about, not just to awe the breath taking spectacle when the trees are changing colour, also the cool and crisp mornings and noons are very much welcome after a hot, hot summer. The fishing seems to go in to overdrive as everything is preparing for the coming winter.
