    Sitting at the computer and typing is a little easier than using the cell phone so I can provide more information. Since the start of the new year the bite has been very light for me. Therefore, I am only successful fishing in places that are out of the wind for now. Fortunately Texoma is a large lake and most of the time I can find places out of the wind to fish. I am still doing better fishing on the larger tree stumps I have placed but when the wind won't allow or various boat ramps are closed due to high water I can still catch fish on brushy brush which I did yesterday. Most of the time my crappie prefer the brushy brush.

    Yesterday I had to look a lot before I found fish that would eat. As most of you already know I am a lure only fisherman. I still carry a cast net and at times catch small shad for guest but basically all I need is an assortment of tube jugs. While yesterday was tough, even on tough days if a person looks long enough they will eventually find feeding fish.

    When I mentioned I had placed 6 now 7 brush piles this year I mean from January 1 to now. The Unknown Fisherman even helped me set one so he could see how I do it. I have already caught fish on that one and I think we sank it last Thursday. 4 of the 7 that I sunk were large Bois De Arc trees that were already floating in the lake from the recent high water. I think most people call them horse apple trees. I have caught fish on all but the last two which I have not fished yet. Those would be Monday's and Tuesdays sunken trees. I actually had a strike on the tree I sank yesterday 15 minutes after I sank it. On the other hand I have had 1 that took 3 years for me to catch my first fish off of it.

    I have a growing interest in filming some of my fishing and hunting trips but have no experience in camera equipment. If any of you have helpful suggestions on where and what kind of inexpensive equip I should purchase I would appreciate the advice. The filming is for personal use so if anyone thinks I am going in competition to their youtube videos you may put those thoughts to rest. As I have mentioned before, the terms of my retirement require that I am not allowed to earn any money at all until I turn 65. I still have 5 years to go. Maybe that's why the Unknown Fisherman kept calling me junior

    I crappie fish 12 months a year on a lake where crappie spend their entire lives running for their life from striped bass which translates to difficult crappie fishing. That being said, there is also a lot of good advice on Youtube. Some of the fisherman even go into great detail explaining what they do. I have recently started watching Youtube and have learned a few tricks I would not otherwise know.

    For inexpensive recording take a look at some of the Dash/Car Cams that are out there, I have an HP F230 I picked up for about $40.00 and it's HD super clear picture; we got it for the car but I'm planning on taking it out on the boat as well, just set it up towards the back for a wide angle shot and let it run. Here is a link to some, but I did not by from here but this will give you an idea, just remember to take proper precautions since they are not water proof but they don't cost big bucks either. Also, make sure you get one that uses the mini- SD card or has HDMI connection so you can upload to you computer.

If you made videos to where I could go along I may never get anything done at work Texoma ! I know you don't get alot of responses on here but do know some of us enjoy reading them for sure and would love to see some videos from you! Keep up the good post!

    Thanks for the encouragement. I figure learning how to use the equipment will be the easy part. Paying for the equipment will be the hard part.

    Questions:

    I viewed the ads mentioned so far and none of them actually state where the camera gets it's power source such as 12V power cord or rechargable batteries or both. Maybe I didn't read far enough.

    Does the wide angle lenses distort the picture? I have seen some videos that made the fishing rods appear like willow limbs they were so distorted.

    How do I mount the thing? Many look like a small box that just sits on the dash. On the other hand a tripod mount on the boat would seem in the way. Should I be looking for a body harness or hat mount of some kind?

    And most importantly, can I edit or crop out back ground in the videos. As we all know, if I leave a portion of the bank showing where I am catching fish there will be 75 boats there the next day. That is why I have not considered filming before.

    Thanks for the input.

    I also follow your posts, and most others on the Okie page. I am especially interested in the above comment because you seldom hear tube jigs mentioned on here. I have been a fan of the tube jigs since the 60's when Bobby Garland came out with the Gitzit. I've had tubes in my boat ever since then. I would be interested in your favorites...size, color, brand, etc.? I don't fish nearly as often as you and just keep enough for a couple meals because I have been on a low carb binge for awhile but I do enjoy your posts.
