    My new obsession is filming underwater in the river. The technology doesn't allow to watch a live stream so it's like checking your trail camera memory card when you get home. There aren't any fish on this video but I thought it was interesting to see how the bottom bouncer is able to navigate all of the obstacles that the river presents.

    Great video, I really liked hearing all the sounds that the bouncer makes. I feel this is
    what makes them effective as the are (sounds like a dinner bell).

    I really like seeing the bottom go from rocks and cobble to sand or clay. What part of the river was that taken?

    Thanks for sharing your work, your obsession of under water filming feeds into every fishmans obsession of wanting to know what is down there.

    In order to obtain what you describe is nearly impossible, especially in a river setting with constant depth changes. On Erie not so much

    Keep at it, your going to get some great footage & open a lot of eyes too !!….aannnddd, when you get some Musky jigging Bondy bait footage, just pm it to me, no utube stuff ;) :D....
