Banging Out A Lobster Trap Trawl Aboard The Trapper John

Captain Chris Orsillo and Mate Steve Redfern bang out a trawl.
What is very encouraging and a testament to the conservation efforts of the lobster industry is how many short lobsters there are that will be there to be harvested as they grow. You can see how many get thrown back and it is quite a few.

Once again we used the Kayalu saltwater resistant suction RAM mount to secure the $79 Kodak Playsport Zx3 to the window behind the pilot house of the Trapper John.

Chris Orsillo Uses The Kayalu Ram Saltwater Camera Mount To Film at 720p 60fps

The mount has worked flawlessly so far and I can’t wait to make a ton more videos mounting the camera in creative places now that I don’t have to worry about the mount I use rusting up in salt water conditions.

I pair it with the refurbished $79 saltwaterproof Kodak Playsport Zx3 which can actually take video under water for the perfect solution for the dock and on our lobster boats. The Kodak Playsport also takes 720p 60 frames per second video which allows me to edit slow motion or speed up the video . That feature isn’t even an option on many $1,500 DSLR’s. Adam Bolonsky turned me on to that camera after I found out he shot our footage from Saturday’s Greasy Pole with it.
Here is some of the footage he captured with it-

Here’s a link to buy it. I bought the refurbished one for $79 here-
