Very cool 8) Where did you have the camera mounted? Go Pro?

Good looking FS18 too!

Boat looks really stable when your fighting the fish from the platform. How does it handle in the open bay when there's chop?

Wet ride in open water chop. Usually run on edges and stay away from open water the best I can.

Hi,
I dont know a thing about fishing but I think I have never seen a fish called Red being caught so spectacular. You seem to be a good fisherman, cameraman and boatbuilder which I also want to become. Your FS18 looks beautiful in this fishing video. I hope I will be able to produce a video like this with my Adelie14 sail boat once I get it finished. Your video is a real great inspiration to finish my sail boat as quick as I can. There will just no fishing going on when I splash but I hope to score on the scenery of the surrounding of our Salzkammergut lakes in Austria. ( Fishing licences here are about 400 Euros for 4 Summer months and sailors I think are not supposed to fish abyway, makes me think I am neither a sailor nor a fisherman, right now an old boat builder hoping to sail on Attersee next spring and then I will show you also a nice video )
Have further on lots of fun with your FS18.
Greetings from Karl ( In far away Austria )
