    I am looking for good ways to take pictures when i'm fishing alone. When i get some nice keepers, i have my wife do it at home. but i go fishing 98% of the time by myself. when i get a real good fish, i gotta put him back, but like they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. any and all input is appreciated.:0a23:

    does your camera have the thread thing on the bottom ? if so you can use a arrow with the noc on it and screw the camera on . this is what i do from the bank or when i'm hunt'n just stick it in the ground were it's sturdy set your mode an there you have it .

    I've got a picture posted on here somewhere of me laying in the bottom of the boat with a 43# beside me:smile2: That was the only way I could get me and the fish in the picture with one hand holding the camera. Good Luck!

    If you have the money by a digital camera nothing fancy just make sure it has a timer. I think I payed $130 for mine but it was well worth it.

    Try laying the fish next to something to give it scale (like a yardstick or rod n' reel). No offense--but you aint that purty anyway. I know---"I'm a fine one to talk"!

    Definitely a digital camera with a timer on it. Be sure to take some test photos before you go fishing, so you know what distance to set the camera and where to stand/kneel and still be able to get in the shot with your big fish.

    The only downside is that the timers are typically 10 seconds, and taking multiple shots means keeping the fish out of the water for a long time. This is a concern of mine for the BOC tournament, where we have to get multiple shots.

    The avenue I'm actually looking into is a digital camera with a movie mode. Activate it, set it down, then stand in front of the camera and do what you got to do without pause. Then go home and take stills from the movie. This will get the fish back into the water in less time than waiting for a timer.
