GoPro and Audio

If you have tried to record audio with your GoPro while on the water using the waterproof case (which you can probably call a soundproof case), you have discovered it is almost impossible to do without using aftermarket devices to aid in getting good sound.

Waterproofing Connectors

Water, salt, dirt, and corrosion are the worst components for damaging your cable connectors. Unlike a motor boat where the cable connectors are typically protected from most of the harsh weather conditions, kayaks are completely exposed. Taking salty waves over our bows landing on sandy beaches and constantly getting rained on are routine. For a minimal cost you can protect your cable connectors to obtain the maximum lifespan out of these expensive cables.

Patching up those leaky waders

If you wear anything to keep waterproof, be it waders or a dry suit, and you spend any time kayak fishing, chances are at some point there will be a hole that will make for a miserable discovery. Breathable dry gear is expensive--a couple hundred bucks each for waders and dry tops, and much more for dry suits. Fortunately holes and small tears are easily repaired, and can bring new life to something you might otherwise shove aside and replace.

How to kayaking dry gear care

Taking care of dry gear, be it waders, dry tops, dry suits, or even breathable rain gear, is often overlooked. They are usually tossed into the back of the truck, or in a tote, and if they’re lucky, you’ll remember to pull them out, rinse them off, and hang them up to dry. While rinsing your gear is the first step to keeping it in good shape, there are additional steps to breathe life back into these breathable waterproof fabrics.

My New Camera For Kayak Fishing

I just placed the order for a new point and shoot camera.  The one I use right now is crap, and it’s only waterproof when I keep it in the zip lock bag.  The D10 has a waterproof housing that keeps it safe from cold as low as 14 degrees Fahrenheit, from drops of up to 4 feet, and from water down to depths of 33 feet.
