Water Wolf Camera
From the innovative minds at Savage Gear comes the newest revolution in fishing video equipment, the Water Wolf Camera. A completely new concept in video capture, the Water Wolf Camera is an inline underwater HD camera offering a view never seen before - a direct focus on your bait and how fish approach it. This high definition camera attaches directly in front of bait or lures to give anglers a glimpse into how fish view and react to the presentation.
When anglers first started using the GoPro cameras, no one was aware of just how popular their use would become among recreational fishermen with nearly every boat outfitted with at least one if not more than one. The Water Wolf Camera seeks to become equally popular among fishermen by delivering a view never before captured by even the most high tech professional grade equipment. The key to the Water Wolf Camera is its easy to use nature and the quality footage it captures. Attaching the camera is very easy, it ties directly onto the line from which a leader is run to the bait. Anglers can rig up a braided main line of whatever they like for additional security, but a fluorocarbon or monofilament leader to their lure in order to present it with more stealth. The Water Wolf Camera includes 3 different keel weights which makes it easier to match the sink rate and depth you are fishing your bait at. Instead of changing the action of the lure with the camera, you'll be able to match it and keep things synergistic.
Part of the appeal of the sports action cameras, like the GoPro, is the length of battery and amount of footage it can capture. That's huge for anglers who are spending a full day on the water and want to make sure they don't miss a minute of action. The Water Wolf Camera offers 4 hours of 720p HD recording time when fully charged and a 16gb micro SD card is in use.
. This affords anglers more than enough recording time to capture some closeup shots of their swimbait seductively swimming through the water and perhaps even some vicious strikes as well. Saving battery is really easy as the camera has a simple on/off switch that enables anglers to set the camera aside for bit and fish without it should they prefer. Then once they are ready for more, just click it back on and get to shooting video.
Camera can support up to 32gb Micro SD card.
Compiling and editing video is actually pretty easy too. One of the intelligent choices was making the Water Wolf's footage into 20 minute increments that are much more manageable than a straight recording.
Because the camera operates on a Micro SD card, it's likely you'll have a port on your computer for the chip or you can simply buy a standard SD card adapter for about $5 on Amazon or at Walmart. Also, should you have your camera out for entire fishing trip, you can purchase additional cards and store all the footage you'd like for later upload once you get home. Obviously, you'll need to charge the camera in between uses, but at least you won't have to worry about selecting footage from each day to make space for more.
We have found a simple solution to making editing even easier. Although the camera records in 20 minute increments, a clip can be shortened by simply clicking the camera off after you get the footage you want. This means whenever you get a strike or catch a fish, we recommend clicking the camera off for a few seconds before continuing use. Now, your important clips will be easier to find because they are shorter. Furthermore, the footage you're interested in will be near the end of the clip.
In addition to simple cast and retrieve fishing, one of the more popular uses of the Water Wolf Camera is sure to be trolling applications. When trolling, an underwater camera like this is going to get a ton of awesome footage that can be quite educational for the viewer. As you can imagine, there are undoubtedly many fish that approach a bait without striking it. What can we learn from this? Well, without any knowledge of this occurring, not much - just guessing. But, with actual documented footage, we may be able to understand the behavior of fish and how they strike much better and ultimately curtail our techniques appropriately. Speaking of trolling, the Water Wolf Camera could be a super tool for better understanding the landscape beneath the water. We've got high tech graphs and side scan units, but nothing replaces actual footage of what we are fishing. Using all of the tools we already have and supplementing them with a solid video of the bottom contour, structure and how fish are positioned could greatly reduce the learning curve and teach us so much about fish behavior. A few passes with the Water Wolf Camera over your favorite ledge or deep cover would give you enough knowledge to better approach the fish and perhaps even give you a better idea of what size of fish are relating to the area. The camera is suitable for depths up to 300ft so there's not many places you won't be able to explore with this underwater camera.
The Water Wolf Camera is the first of its kind and sure to be a big hit among both freshwater and saltwater anglers pursuing a number of game fish species. Check out the
