Technology is becoming quite overwhelming these days. It seems like people want to use it for everything, even when they’re enjoying outdoor activities like fishing. We’ve seen some unusual uses of technology, like drone fishing, and now there’s even a story about attaching a GoPro camera to a fish.
While I think relying on technology all the time while outdoors is a bit extreme, this idea seems intriguing and worth a shot.
I wonder how the people behind this idea came up with it. It must have been a funny conversation.
Here’s how it goes: A fisherman goes to a bridge, sets up his fishing rod, and uses a slice of Wonder Bread as bait. Yes, you read that right, a slice of bread!
He casts his line into the water, making sure not to fall into the traffic behind him. He ends up catching a big carp, which is quite impressive.
“We wanted a big fish to attach a GoPro to, and we caught one on the first try.”
“I’m excited to see what other big fish we can discover once the GoPro is on the fish itself.”
Those are some high expectations for this experiment, but it’s an interesting way to find fish. Let’s see how it turns out.
The fisherman and his friend secure the GoPro camera onto the fish, placing it on the fish’s back. They’re not completely foolish – they attach fishing line to the GoPro so they can retrieve it later. I hope the fishing line doesn’t get tangled or break during this adventure.
They release the fish into the water with the camera recording. The fish swims around, capturing some great footage, before they decide to reel it back in. By the time they bring the GoPro back to shore, the fish has swum away, probably hiding somewhere after that unusual experience.
Either way, it worked better than I expected. Remember back in 2019, when a YouTuber called “The Fish Whisperer” attached a GoPro camera to a turtle? He captured some incredible footage of life in his local pond, almost like something you’d see on the Discovery Channel. People really loved that video, and it has over 17 million views now.
Well, he’s done it again. This time, he attached the camera to a turtle named Tank. Tank dives into the pond, swims around, bumps into some fish and rocks, and the funniest part is when the man throws food into the water for the turtle.
Tank notices the food, swims to the surface, and gets into a little scuffle with another turtle for the food. It’s like Tank’s saying, “I’m not backing down!” All we need now is someone like David Attenborough to narrate this. Maybe Netflix should consider it!
