My latest Island sailing clip (shame about how the quality poo-pooed while compressing), taken yesterday. It shows off how my Island currently is rigged pretty well. A few more small mods to make, but this particular Dune AI is almost a completed project :-)

5th, another great video clip. I like your style of texting the comments. Very innovative fishing technique! 8)

Talking about sun umbrellas :lol:
As Roadrunner says + I also like very much the 'nervous' and inspiring music that goes with it : what is it ?

Glad you like it - that's one of the tracks from a Quake 2 mission pack ('90s video game) :-)
Yes, the fishing technique was a new one by me. It was a bitter-sweet moment though... it didn't please me to see so much by-catch dumped into the sea. It was mass slaughter really. The birds had been at them for a while before I got there so I can only wonder how much was really dumped over the side.

Another video, probably my best yet. Nice 12'5kg longtail tuna caught, and some pretty spectacular sailing. Great day out :-)

Nice catch - great sailing footage heading home - looked like a wild ride - I wish our water was that warm and tropical looking :(

And another. More tuna catching action, this time casting into a massive school for immediate results. Enjoy :-)

Amazing video, probably the best AI video I've seen so far. Would you mind sharing how you setup the camera's for the views you have gotten? I want to try and setup my digital camera so I can show my family some sweet fishing videos! Do you have remotes for you cameras? Looks like it might be kind of hard to reach some of the positions to turn them on and off

Thanks JG. I use b size RAM balls, attached to both front and rear akas. These ones in fact:

No remote on the camera, but its easy enough to access - I just fold the ama in and its right next to me. I am getting a new HD camera this week though and I think I'll get a remote for that one.

Awesome, thanks, haha, I always forget about being able to fold the ama in and out.

What camera do you use? Which are you looking to upgrade to? Do you just have it record the whole outing or do you turn it on when the fish strikes?

Yo man, what are those pants you are wearing in this Vid?

They look comfy and much easier to put on than a wetty.

(BTW: I'm thinking of the Kokatat T3 Nova semi-dry for Jervis in July)
