  1. We have seen them early in the season if there are emeralds around, but yeah, I don't really dive until the temp hits the upper 60's these days.
  2. I finally got around to putting some video clips together.
  3. Looking for a fishing report, if anyone's been fishing it. Thanks
  4. Thank you. They won't take right from your hand. You can float them to them. Haven't intentionally fed them in years. A few years back, I had a bass that would follow me the entire time I was in the water if i was anywhere near his area. He had learned that we would spook gobies when we came through. Easy eats. We even named him. He was a beat up old fish, easy to I.D. At the time, I thought he was a giant pain in the butt. An ugly bass photobombing all my shots. Now, I kind of miss him.
  5. That's the line to our float and flag. It's a necessary safety precaution in a river that sees a good amount of boat traffic.
  6. It's been a good summer for both fishing and diving. Here's a look at what's going on in the river. https://youtu.be/Qgs1VCbLwGE
  7. thank you guys. I hope to string together a multi species video for you soon. Of course, with the weather, underwater visibility, and walleye fishing being as good as it has been, I've been spending a lot of my free time on the water and under it. As far as that muskie goes, I never thought it would bump me. I wasn't really pressing it, as it was off to the left of me. He had plenty of room to move, not like it was backed against a rock pile or anything. I had pretty much come to a complete stop at a fair distance from it. The fish seemed to be by itself, (they are bolder when in pairs and groups) it didn't display any real aggressive signs at the start. I look for body language in a musky like you might in an unchained dog. I read curious as it started moving towards me. I don't think it decided to bump me until it was within 2 feet of me. Then it got that look in it's eyes. And yes, floatman, I'm glad it happened, he barely bumped me. That said, if it was world cup soccer, I guess I'd have to flop around on the river bottom like I got shot or something.
  8. A Niagara River muskie had enough of our underwater paparazzi act and takes a run at me. He didn't bite. People always asked me If I was concerned about a muskie attacking me. I would tell them I didn't care as long as I got it on film. I got the shot.
  9. A sturgeon can live as long as a human. Maybe longer. Thanks for releasing him quickly. thank you, and everyone who posted. There are 2 different sturgeon, the crooked one would be about 4 1/2 or so, with chiropractic help, and the other one is over 6ft. If you make you tube videos, there is a lot of good background music people make available for free. You can click on the You Tube creator studio and download it. You don't even have to use their editing program. Just thinking back to when I first started out with this. I had a Hi 8 mm camera and an Ikelite enclosure that was as big as a breadbox. It was 4x as expensive as a current GoPro . Editing was done on a VCR, and if I wanted music, I lost a little more quality because I had to copy my edited cut while playing music into my second VCR with patch cords from the stereo. There was no You Tube at that point. So much better and easier today.
  10. Yes sir, another video of fish doing what they do in the river. This one is from my new GoPro 5, which has image stabilization, a really nice feature when you're trying to film in heavy currents.. If you have any questions, i will try to answer them .Enjoy !
  11. Remember those 35 mm disposable still cameras? There were the "waterproof " ones that worked down to about 20 ft before the buttons jammed up from the pressure. That's all we got for $ 20. Video equipment, phones and computers have made huge leaps in this century. That's why I can't pick on this little camera too much.
  12. I know most of you are not in the market for a sportscam, but we bumped some nice fish while doing this, and I KNOW you guys are interested in that.
  13. Thank you. The musky is the fish I like to film most. We seek drifts where we will contact them. We don't always see one, but more often than not. Nobody was really filming them back when I first started. We had to learn how to get in close to them. Some muskies are afraid, some curious, some friendly, some mean and aggressive. They are a moody creature.
  14. I dove what people called the "Chippewa cut" We dove from the Niagara river in about half a mile. That was before those guys died diving it. I'm not sure it's allowed these days.
  15. Thank you. I'm not very optimistic about that, I always wanted to drift up the niagara bar, like a drift you would take while laker fishing. The weather this season has been particularly poor , not just for diving, but for boating in general. We did some walleye fishing today between the lake and Peace Bridge. We caught some, but took quite a beating from wind and wave. The visibility was poor, and will be worse after the winds forecast for the next few days.
