GoFish Cam Wireless Underwater Fishing Camera

GoFish Cam is a wireless underwater fishing camera that sits on your fishing line and works with a mobile app. Ice fishers can capture action-packed footage, gain insight into the underwater ice fishing experience, and review awesome video content that can be shared on social media.

The GoFish Cam attaches in-line between your main line and leader line. When you take the frustrating guesswork out of fishing, it becomes extremely fun for anglers of any age and skill level. A fishing camera is a perfect tool for novices to learn and have fun fishing, and for experts to gain unique intel to catch more fish than ever before.

When properly rigged, you’ll likely get your camera back even if the line breaks. The key is to make sure the line breaks below the camera. Tie the camera between a heavier main line and a lighter leader line. The main line should be at least twice the weight of the leader line to make sure the leader line snaps first.

For added peace of mind, GoFish Cam does offer a 1 years camera loss protection program.

The camera operates at depths up to 500 feet and is noted to be able to be used for ice fishing.
