Four days on Shark Bay

 Just a short vid of our recent trip living aboard up at the Bay, second week of the school holidays. Didn't video mch of the fishing, scored some shallow water pinks to 60cm, ansd some squid. Magic weather. Plenty of drone footage, including South Passage.

What a difference drones make to the holiday flicks

Sun, 2020-10-25 22:06

Drones are certainly taking the holiday flicks to a new level. The view they give you of the holiday location is certainly outstanding.
Thanks for sharing your get away with us.

Camera on boat?

Mon, 2020-10-26 17:41

 Go pro Hero 8. They do great footage, I generally don't do anything in post processing, just edit it down. The drone footage always needs a bit of help, but there is just a simple preset I apply to that. I've been using a really cheap program called Filmora9  that does a great job, started using it with the Blowholes video.

Thanks ranmar. Have been out

Mon, 2020-10-26 19:28

Thanks ranmar. Have been out of touch with gopros, my current is a gopro 5, and tbh i was a bit sick of the whole fisheye/distorted look. I like the look of yours, nice and wide without the distortion. I've actually been given the green light to upgrade as the missus recently knocked my gopro off the table and smashed the front flat lens into a million pieces.

 

I know that part is just a cheap replacement but she doesn't need to know that

Take the wide angle setting off

Tue, 2020-10-27 10:05

 I usually go to a Medium(?) field of view. It brings things in closer and you get rid of the distortion. Narrow is even better, but, of course, the field of view is, well, narrower. This doesn't matter if you are hand held and can see what you are filming. But if you have it fixed mount, or head or chest, you need Medium, or risk having the action out of frame. I'm actually thinking about a little digital handyman for this now, something with optical zoom,  to augment the go Pro. On other fishing videos, I am still using the old Hero 3 Black for the fixed overhead mount, very important for catching the initial action when trolling. The footage doesn't look as good as the newer gopros , but, with the fight editing , comes up ok.

I'm actually looking at dropping some coin and upgrading all my canon dslr stuff to Sony and getting stuck into some filming, see how we go on YouTube. Don't hold your breath though, I've been talking about this for a year now!

Hahaha.

 Most of my videos get views in the tens, not the tens of thousands . A couple got 1.4 to 1.7 k views. But getting better at it-- just took a subscription to a new music sharing site which will give me a wider choice of background.

 

Yes, we got the weather. Windy picked it perfectly as usual. Crowds weren't bad over there, although I didn't look at any of the South Passage campgrounds. A few big cruisers coming and going, but they tend to moor in Sunday Bay, nice and deep.

Mon, 2020-10-26 20:07

I have thrown a Videos on YouTube over the past ten years and the biggest success is my wife and I cutting up a watermelon and throwing bits of fruit on it on toothpicks....16000 views... it is only a couple of minutes long because I cocked up the editing and it plays twice in the same clip.

Reckon we passed you on the Thursday in Sunday Passage

Mon, 2020-10-26 20:03

We were coming in from a fish south west of Steep point on Thursday afternoon in the Reefy, there was another Reefy in close to the Island in the Sunday passage, the glorious weather was a very limited window to a few days in a couple of weeks. Caught some big Reds that day and the goldband were on the chew. Highlight for our trip was coming across a squadron of 30+ manta rays the day before up to the north of the island, kids swam around with them until they were worn out. There was also a Humpback mother and calf in the shallows on the Thursday morning on the eastern side of the channel on the way out.
Great footage as always and look forward to running into you one day for a look at your set up.

Yes, that could have been us.

Tue, 2020-10-27 13:10

 I was tempted to throw in the electrics for the trip. Trouble was, we didn't really intend to kill much--I know, sacrilege to get to Steep Point, in a good boat, and not go nuts on the fish ....but we don't tend to kill much on those cruising type trips. It would be easy for me to do an overnighter out there to fish, load the fishbag up with ice, two days fishing, overnight out there. I certainly don't lack marks out in that deep water, have all my old crayfishing ( and fishing) marks for that area on the plotter,. They go all the way from False Entrance to about 10 miles up the island.

Look forward to a catchup some time.

You mean the drone, LJ?

Tue, 2020-10-27 13:15

 Not really hard, bit scary over water, could get expensive   I was sort of interested, then a mate took all that Monties footage which I edited into a vid. Then, I really got interested.  Not hard off dry land, harder on the boat. Unless you have a big flat open area, which most small boats don't have, you have to launch by hand--that isn't hard--then catch them as they come back in. Without slicing your fingers up.  We worked out a system this time, was the first time we'd run it off the boat. Stuck to glass calm weather with no fast drift or pitching around.

 Reef looked man made, surprised there wasn't more life on it for spearing.

I think spearfishing is the problem out there

Wed, 2020-10-28 15:18

 The habitat in the bay is often very sparse. This put enormous pressure on bluebone, the main target, when spearfishing. The inside of the Island has had very high pressure on it--I didn't see a single bluebone the whole time I was there this year, you used to see them everywhere. Quite cautious and hard to catch on a line, but a bit vulnerable to spearing. There is a large sanctuary area starting just west of where that footage was taken, for that reason.
