YouTube Shorts video where I use Pectin - also can use Gelatin, to make DIY Fish Bites using a recipe from  @Deep Waters Fishing for saltwater fishing.

We call it DIY Fish Bites Gummy Gums for ease of reference. It is a simple recipe that works in freshwater, too!  See details of the recipe posted on our blog post -DIY Fish Bait Recipe | Fishing with Pectin aka Gelatin #shorts, as well as in the description of the Shorts video.

YouTube Shorts video to answer the mail... "Is the glue flexible when cured?"

It does not appear flexible.  It has held for two seasons without issue.

Go Pro Hero 5 to Phone Underwater Camera Rig

Been itching to get more underwater camera actions shots. Wanted to try a camera setup that uses the Wi-Fi connection to a mobile phone to get live action shots of what is happening underwater.

Understood the Wi-Fi connection is lost soon as the Hero 5 goes underwater. The Go Pro will keep recording but you can no longer control the Go Pro with your phone.

Found a workaround that uses cable like in Cable TV cable to maintain connectivity when the Go Pro is underwater.

Made a rig and planned to field test is soon as the hand heals but while testing the rig my sinking the camera in a bucket, learned the Wi-Fi connection stayed connected.

I did not lose connection until I was 20+ feet away from the bucket.  Will have to test this in a pond. But, this is promising!

Do check back, plan to try testing the connection with and without the rig to see if the Hero 5 stays connected!

Finally, I was able to test the DIY GoPro  to Phone Rig that would allow me to control my GoPro using my phone as well as allow me to see the live video feed to my phone.

Simple rig that used PVC, COAX TV Cable, a metal extension with a GoPro mount to hold the GoPro and another mount to hold the phone.

While testing the rig in a bucket the GoPro would stay connected via Wi-Fi as far as 20 feet without the rig.

However, in the field, the camera lost the Wi-Fi connection.  I needed the DIY GoPro to Phone Rig to stay connected. 

The rig worked!
- I could start and stop the recording, turn it off and surprisingly... back on too!  
- I  watched the live video feed; no fish but it was a field test more than a fishing trip.
- And, even stay connected up to 10 plus feet away.  I did not have to have the phone touching the cable.


Links are included in the decription and a live stream I hosted to detail how I made it.

Do check it out; we also included some key items to be aware of in the the Trout Area Regulations and General Trout Regulations posted by Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation online at this link.

Good Luck and Good Fishing!

TBT to a local pond...

 

I can say as a guy who owns an $1100 Hardy, 3 bamboo rods I absolutely love my little CGR 3 weight 5' 3".  I think Paid $70 and I find myself reaching for it as often as any of the others.  It's simply a great rod and I would recommend one to anybody that likes the feel of glass.  I use mine on New England small streams but as your video shows it can hold it's own on open water.  I've surprised at how far the little rod can cast when needed and' with enough accuracy to keep me from getting into trouble with the dense overhanging brush we have here.  Usually anyway, sometimes I get a little to brave but that's not the rods fault.  3 or 4 seasons of regular use and no quality issues at all.  Thanks for posting this-

Thanks!  It is a nice rod that can cast surprisingly fat for its size.

YouTube Shorts video of our DIY GoPro to Phone rig for getting a live feed view of the underwater action when fishing a pond. Cool stuff... this rig telescopes and uses a Hero 5. Check back as we are trying a variant of this one that uses a GoFish Cam and a telescoping fiberglass pole.

A Suggested Fishing Fly for the Blue River This Trout Season #shorts

YouTube Shorts video of a suggested fishing fly that worked well for us on the Blue River in Oklahoma last Season!  It's the Pat's Rubber Leg fished with minimal movement under a strike indicator.

Do stop by Scotty's One Stop at the entrance to the Blue River and pickup the pattern in olive, cream, and brown.  Great patterns to have in your fly box for those light striking trout!
