    I do most of my Codding between 250 and 300 feat and I always wondered what kind of light penetration gets down to that depth during the midday hours on a sunny day.

    Do you have any footage around that depth?

    Thanks for sharing your videos !

    Amazing videos,editing,and all the rest that goes with them,truly enjoy them,still makes me a little sad,because I wish we could see those areas teeming or should I say covered with rockies,and believe me I've caught my share,so don't get me wrong.
    I'm old now,63 and a grandson who's 3 mos young,and just wonder what videos of that same area would be like when he's a teenager,I haven't caught and kept more than I can use right away for some time now, and hope this resource last for a long time.

    Thanks! The "4K" video from Santa Rosa Island was at 280 to 300 feet deep, and I have a LOT of light on my camera. When I turn the lights off at that depth you can only see silhouettes, its very dark. At about 600-800 feet you lose pretty much all light and probably could not see your hand in front of your face. On my you tube channel I have footage from 100 feet all the way down to 1400 feet.

    Yes...thanks for the helpful video! A lot of people say ling's simply hangout in rock holes waiting to "pounch" on their pray as it swims by, which I'm sure is partially true. This proves differently. Swimming around in open water. Interesting.

    Thanks for all the comments! Glad you like the footage.

    Yea there are 2 red lasers that are 8 inches apart, so if they both hit something you can estimate the size. The problem is that its hard to get them to shine on what your interested in all the time.

    Truly amazing vids. Have you tried to get a jig or bucktail in the frame so you can see how the fish react to it?

    That was some cool video. I too would like to see the sled. How do you keep it form getting snagged on the bottom?

    Epic footage of the structures, fishes, and impressive work with the clarity of the underwater coverage!

    These are amazing. I could watch this all day. It's very soothing too!

    What is the strangest thing you have seen on camera? Have you seen anything that left you scratching your head?

    Very awesome!

    Really cool stuff! I have always wanted to send a camera down on the deep cod spots. Every year my father and I do a Big Sir coast 2 day rock fishing trip. The bottom is incredibly rocky up there and every spot is loaded with HUGE rock fish and lings. I have seen guys land lings up to 40lbs+. Could only imaging the monsters that you could see with this camera. Everything up there is jumbo sized compared to down here. If you ever have a chance to film up there I would love to see what you capture! Thanks for the great post!
