XShot Kayak Mount
« on: December 16, 2009, 10:09:38 pm »
The folks over at XShot have been doing their homework, they have added the all new "Kayak Mount Xshot" to their lineup!  The handheld version was nice but when I imagined the perfect monopod for kayak fishing I always envisioned a mounted unit so that I could keep both hands free to control the fish I was photographing, now there is finally something like that on the market...wicked.  Can't wait to get my hands on one, I'll be sure to write up a review when I get a chance to try it out.  Just need to get this Winter thing over with  :-\

It is currently only available on their site and should be on dealers shelves early in the new year.

What would be really good would be an X-Shot 9 (maybe a foot or 18" long) on a 360 deg. universal joint swivel, mounted on a Scotty base.  You could set the camera and mounting system all up for a delayed shot, catch the fish, click the shutter button, quickly swing the camera out into position, pose for the shot and bingo, that 6" perch is preserved for posterity.

lol @ 6" perch...  I think a waterproof camera with a remote would solve alot of problems too.

I really like the idea of that camera.  I find it extremely difficult to hold my catch in one hand and hold the camera backwards at arm's length in the other to take a pic by myself, and my buddy usually doesn't want to reel in and paddle over to where I am just to take a pic for me.  Great idea.
