Due to popular demand I have created a new video clip based upon our most recent Fraser Island (Australia) kayak fishing expedition. I delayed putting this one together for several reasons, primarily because I struggled to use the footage to form a narrative as planned due largely to (Go pro related) technical issues suffered by myself and my cohorts. This was a real shame because had footage been available for all the fishing action we encounted it would have made for a monumental clip - easily the best yet... and would have been five times as long. That said, I was still left with plenty of good footage to work with, largely thanks to Rhett Thorne, who not only out-fished the rest of the posse, also captured a good deal of quality footage.

In this clip you'll see some great golden trevally, mack tuna, mackerel and even a baby marlin, which Carl hooked and boated in the shallows. Unfortunately, his is one of the numerous cams that failed and as such, not only was the best of this moment lost, so were several others, including a whopping trevally. Along with several other missed moments, their inclusion would have made this clip so much better. That all said, I'm actually really happy how this one turned out, and the footage that I emitted will show up on my next major video clip, which should appear soon after a planned expedition in May.

Terrific video.....and it shows how versatile the AI is for fishing.
Do you guys by chance use or need shark shields?

DrSteelhead, I use to use a Shark Shield after having a close call with a great white but it didn't take me long to realize that a SS was somewhat pointless on an AI because there's really very little danger of falling out, which is the only real concern you'd have in a boat that stable. However we do see a hell of a lot of sharks around Fraser (hammerheads, bulls and tigers mostly) and a couple of the guys do pack them, but I don't think have ever felt a need to switch one on. Sharks do get a little inquisitive at times, but they are well fed around there at that time of year. As far as I'm concerned the clutter of an added shark shield isn't worth the effort, but I don't blame anyone for using one - they do work. I've done a few tests that pretty much proved it to me.

Looks like you guys had a great time Josh. I love watching you videos they inspire me. Thanks for allowing me to copy your bullhorn rod holders. Its very strong and sturdy a lot better than the bought rod holders in my opinion.
