    When I am not fishing or diving, I like to drop a camera on the fish and see where they are and what they are doing.

    I built a large towed camera sled that I drop from my boat on seamounts and the usual rockfish spots (up to 1400' deep so far) mainly to film different rockfish species. The sled carries 2 Go Pros, live video and data an be watched on the boat, and about 360 watts of LED lighting (because its dark down there), powered by a NiMH battery pack. Enjoy!

    Yep! You da man!

    That actually explains a lot to me, and others I presume...

    Those lings look like they are taking advantage of the light to go hunting....


    Way cool!

    Awesome videos Nathan

    What caught my attention was how much current there was and how many small fish, it's a miracle they ever bite a hook

    Rad videos! It would be so cool to see the camera rig. Where do you put all the wire?
