This season we experimented by trolling a Towcam underwater camera, not just to collect footage but also to see how many fish we were actually raising and whether they were shying away from the gear. The results were really quite surprising. Early in the season, the fish were a lot more aggressive and less concerned about the gear. However, as the crowds grew, things changed. We started to see more fish, but the number of bites dropped. Early on in the season, we were seeing several fish a day and getting bites from roughly six; however, at the peak of the season, we were seeing seven to 10 fish a day, but only scoring three to four bites. Interestingly, a lot of fish cruised right up to the camera to inspect the bait, check out the camera, and then cruise on.
