Bringing Cameras With You on the Water

With the evolution of the internet, digital cameras, fishing forums, Facebook and even anglers writing blogs, most of us have either started taking pictures or video while on the water. Personally I have gone thru a couple of point and shoot cameras, and a Blackberry. My point & shoot digital camera is now a waterproof one with a float attached. My iPhone that I carry is enclosed in a Lifeproof case and Lifeproof Lifejacket.
When it comes to bringing your more expensive equipment on the water, there is always the worry of damaging your DSLR camera. Since I am in a kayak and have limited space I recently purchased a hard case enclosure that is waterproof, shockproof, and still compact enough to store somewhere on the kayak. Pelican is the more popular hard case product, but while I was looking at them in the Camera Shop I came across these Nanuk cases which I found to have a better latch design and it also seemed more robust.

Richard Ofner

Richard Ofner started fishing in the fall of 2008 from a kayak, targeting all freshwater species. He has fished all over the Great Lakes Region from Lake Michigan, Lake Superior to the French River,  and Bay of Quinte in Eastern Ontario. Taking advantage of all the opportunities Southwestern Ontario has to offer, Richard seeks out trophy Muskie, Walleye and Bass which can all be caught minutes away from where he lives.  The last few years Richard has ventured into Kentucky, Louisiana, and Texas participating in several Kayak Fishing Tournaments.

He has organized the Border City Classic, in Windsor, Ontario which has grown to become one of  the Great Lakes Region’s largest Kayak Fishing Events. It is also one of the Hobie World Qualifiers since 2014. 

During the winter months where he can't get on the water he will do seminars, work fishing and boat shows, and write for blogs to help promote the areas vast resource of fishing opportunities and helping others to discover the sport of kayak fishing. Taking videos and pictures on the water of other people fishing in kayaks has also expanded into his kayak fishing experience.  
As a Hobie Fishing Team Member you may see Richard out in one of his Mirage Driven Kayaks mainly targeting Walleye, Bass, and Muskie, and will travel a few hours to target Salmon, Trout, and Sturgeon.
