Here’s a little adaption I have taken from the guys at NZBlokes FishTails (Brad & Andrew) this is a simple mounting solution for your GoPro camera using the tripod mount and RAILBLAZA StarPort adapter and a few little extras. This is a custom made product at this point but the guys at RAILBLAZA have taken note so watch this space.
I have used the following parts for this
Whats the benefits of this set up or the standard mounting to say the Boom mount? well there are a couple of situations where this will allow for a quick move of the camera to a new location..in particular Brad from will be using it in a deck mounted StarPort filming the sounder or just parked ready for when landing a fish can quickly unclip it with the StarPort slidelock and re position the camera to the RailMount StarPort on the net or gaff to catch a very cool angle at water level…this can all be done pretty quickly with one hand!
This solution mounts to any RAILBLAZA StarPort, Railmount, SidePort or accessories like Extenders, adjustable extenders, Telepole, Boom mounts..I will be trialing it over the next few weeks to see how useful it is… I personally like the idea of mounting a Railmount to the net or the paddle shaft to allow for a quick position change to get multiple angles when using only 1 or 2 cameras..if you have any questions leave a comment below and I will respond, Thanks
