RIP Okuma Water Wolf Camera….On a recent ocean trip, I had some amazing footage going of lings, rockfish and cabezon eating live herring on camera.
I kept telling myself to quit while I was ahead but getting killer shots with those cameras is so damned addicting. So, I dropped it down with one more herring.
That’s when big mama ling came out and grabbed my bait. I had her up off the bottom three times before she made one final run and dragged my gear…camera and all…into the rocks. The braid snapped like cobweb and there went the Water Wolf…and all that awesomely cool underwater video. :(
Here are some videos/pix that I shot before the camera got eaten:
