Kayak Fishing Mounts

I do alot of kayak fishing and would love to hear if anyone has any ideas or tips on what would be a nice shot and how to achieve it. Ive been trying to be able to get some shots under water of the fish but living in the north east the water isnt the cleanest and all the filters ive seen is for at least 5 feet of water. Currently im using two hero 5 blacks and sometimes my hero 4 session i have one on the front of the kayak facing me always on loop connected to my gopro remote and connected to a battery back up then the other camera on the side or over the shoulder on a pole with a ram ball mount. Any other cool ideas would be awesome

Re: Kayak Fishing Mounts

Filters are only needed for very blue or very green water so I wouldn't worry about that. You could try a Lume Cube setup with the Session on the underside of the Kayak. Perhaps adhere a mount to a board (I'd also drill a hole and add a screw for extra security) and the thread the lume cube with GoPro through the scupper hole from the underside and attach it to the board. You'll probably need a couple extensions but you should get a cool look from the underside of the vessel. Also, the light just might attract a few fish!
