Due to the high seat position of the Jackson Coosa I needed a way to elevate my GoPro HD in order to get the right angle. My solution was to mount a YakAttack PanFish™ to the top of my crate using the Mighty Mount™
The PanFish™ was designed to capture over-the-shoulder video. It features a split pole design with adjustable disks that allow quick and easy horizontal panning. All you have to do is grab the foam grip and rotate! At the top of the PanFish™ I have a double socket RAM arm which holds the GoPro HD camera. Hook1 has an option that includes a RAM mount, Mighty Mount™, and mounting hardware.
The Mighty Mount™ is a small mounting plate that can be placed directly on a kayak, on a rail, or bolted to pretty much anything. I chose the top of my crate because it gives me the extra height I need. When fishing with the seat in low position the PanFish Portrait™ is the perfect height to capture video. Attaching either one only takes a few seconds.
Supplies – Crate, Drill, Mighty Mount™, PanFish™, and Cutting Board
Cut the board to the size of the Mighty Mount™ and drill matching holes. Now bolt them together making sure the nuts are securely tightened down. You don’t want any wiggle room!
I’ve had the opportunity to play around with the PanFish™ for a few months now and I’m very impressed. As someone who mainly fishes rivers I put a beating on my equipment. None of YakAttack’s products have failed me yet. If I want to record my buddy catching a trophy fish or take a self portrait while standing on the shore it only takes a simple twist to pan the camera. If you need to mount anything to your kayak I highly recommend YakAttack’s line of products.
Please practice CPR! See ya on the river!
