CatchCam users are increasingly deploying the underwater camera to monitor their creel pots. In fact, since 2023 the benefits of pairing the camera with static gear have become more evident:
“I tested a variety of creels including lobster, brown crab, velvet & green crab, wrasse pots, as well as shrimp and prawn creels” with the CatchCam camera. In fact, the underwater footage revealed that “all the species reacted differently to tidal conditions and artificial light conditions which proved really interesting and, as a result, prompted alterations to creel design set up to increase fishing efficiency”, shared Bruce Langlands in an interview with The Skipper magazine.
But that’s not all. The CatchCam camera provides flexibility when it comes to filming the gear underwater, whether that is static or not. With the size of a Coke can, the camera seamlessly integrates into any set-up, even finding a snug spot inside a creel pot.
As more fishers started to implement the CatchCam camera into their static gear, came the need for a smart and easy way to attach the camera to record the creel from above. Watch below as the SafetyNet team joined a fishing expedition in Scotland to pair the camera with an easy DIY attachment:
You can replicate the gear attachment from the video, by following the step-by-step guide we’ve put together below.
If you have made up your own gear attachment, we would love it if you would share it with us.
Why Choose CatchCam for Static Gear Deployment?
The CatchCam Entry Package was tailor-made for static gear. The camera allows you to easily record catch behaviour around the gear and, as a consequence, adjust your operations to be more efficient.
