  2. Nice review and cool POV's on the film. I noticed in your video that your paddle is sliding in your stager. Put some velcro in the recessed part and on the paddle, soft side naturally on the paddle, it will double as soft paddle grips.

  3. Thanks Brady. I think my paddle was actually sliding because I didn't have it sitting flush (it was half leaning on a rod). Tight lines down in TX!

  4. Drew-

    Got an awesome site going here, lots of great articles. Had a question for you- moved to NC from VA, and am just getting into bass fishing- can you give me a "must have" list of baits/lures for this area? Or maybe just direct me to a good article/resource. I'd be fishing places like Falls Lake, Jordan, Cane Creek Rsvr., etc. Thanks!

    1. Hi Sam,
      I am a big crankbait fan, so #1 would be crankbaits. I would get some of varying sizes and running depths. Second, you have to have a few types of plastic worms and then hooks/gear to fish them either Texas rigged, weightless, on a shakey head, or even Carolina rigged. Other musts - spinnerbaits, buzzbaits, topwater lures (walkers and poppers), and lipless cranks. If you want, drop me an email (dmh22@duke.edu) and I can go into more detail with you. Tight lines!

    1. Thanks Mack. I currently have a GoPro Hero 3 Black edition. GoPros are great, but I hate their short battery life and the fact that they are constantly becoming "out of date". I use a Brunton battery, which has a much better run time. All that being said, I am strongly considering the new Garmin VIRB cameras. They are a little cheaper, have great quality, and come highly recommended from folks who are currently using them.

      As for a mount, I prefer a pole mount because it lets folks see the entire picture, particularly from an elevated angle behind an angler. However, I think the chest mount is better than a head mount. Tight lines!
