Nice fish and great video. Looked like a great day on the lake. Haven't been on West Point on awhile may need to make a trip down there.

Dylan - I have (2) internal batteries and (2) external "backpack" batteries on board. My camera will record roughly 4 hours on (1) internal and (1) external battery at 1080p/30fps. I also have an inverter I plug in to my trolling motor batteries and recharge the first set if I have the need to record more than (8) hours. I use a 64gb mini SD card and it will save all recordings at 1080p/30fps up to 8.5 hours. If I move to 1080p/60fps, which is not often, it will only hold about 5.5 hours of recordings. This past Saturday we recorded for about 6 hours and there was 43.6gb of video saved on the SD card at the end of the day.
I edit the video in two stages because I have yet to find video editing software that does everything in one package. I upload all the video into the GoPro free software first because it is fast uploading and chopping out segments. The GoPro software also allows a “zoom in” feature that is hard to find except with Adobe software. I then save it to my hard drive and import that clip into Windows Movie Maker to add the finishing touches and music. It sounds time consuming but this video only took about 2 hours to chop up and upload. In the end the above video turned out to be 218.4mb and last weeks, at 7.44 minutes, was 660.4mb.

Thanks for the reply. What do you use to keep your camera up? And which gopro do you have?

I use a 5' piece of 1" PVC pipe with a flat end cap glued on to the top and a threaded GoPro mount screwed to the top of the cap.
The 1' PVC fits pretty snug in my rod holders and the camera is a Hero 3+ silver edition.
