Whether you’re fly fishing, spinning or trolling or—when you reel in the Big One, it comes with a story to tell and an even better one to show. That’s why the best GoPro camera for fishing is the one that’s durable enough to capture every cast and still work perfectly after the trip, because after all, the best fishing gear can survive a strong splash.
Action cameras, like the new HERO11 Black are no different, featuring waterproof capabilities up to 33 feet (10 meters). For enhanced protection, a Protective Housing + Waterproof Case can help protect against salt water and increases the waterproof depth capability up to 196 feet (60 meters). What more does a fisherman need?
Since GoPro action cameras don't float straight out of the box, dropping one could be a bitter sacrifice to Davey Jones' Locker. But you’re in luck! There are some tricks to secure your camera—even if you have your hands full reeling in your catch, you can still get the shot by attaching your GoPro directly to your body. Here are three GoPro mounts perfect for fishing.
PRO TIP: If your camera + mounts do end up taking a dip in the ocean, make sure to rinse your gear with fresh water and wipe clean to avoid salt buildup.
Mounting your GoPro camera directly to the boat is great for capturing your whole fishing crew and all the action that ensues.
When the bobber goes under, it’s go-time. GoPro action cameras makes it easy to capture images and video when you're rockin' and reelin'.
