Those are some real beauties. I hope to find some like that some day up there.

Very nice! I just mount an ultra pod on the yoke with a 35mm with a timer on it to take pictures. Turn on camera, set timer, sit back and wait 10 seconds for a picture. The only problem is the auto focus sometimes does not focus correctly and I have to take more than one picture. Thinking about taking my iPhone with me on the next trip and setting it up on top of something next to the yoke and see how that works. Just hate having a phone with me, but I'm going to turn off cell data, put it on airplane mode, and use the power save function, so it won't be anything but a camera.

Nice multi-species score!

They were snapping for me late Thursday afternoon down here in the cities.
It's tough when you are by your lonesome and want to get decent pic.
Phone selfies take practice and a lot of pics to get one that stands out.

My routine is to get the phone ready while still holding the fish in the water if possible, which is difficult to do for species other than bass. Take 4-5 quick pics, dip the fish back in the water while checking out the first batch to see if any are okay and there is good lighting. And if needed take few more.

Like I said earlier, it was a nice very rare 3 hour bite this week, caught 14 largemouth bass that probably totaled 50 lbs. 5 over 4 lbs, with one at 4.87 lbs, and this toad came in at 5.94 lbs. You bet I'm gonna try to get a pic of that memory. I was all smiles, all night.
So get out there while they are biting!
:)

I mount a camera on my thwart and take a video. Later I review it frame by frame and pull whatever frames I want to save making them individual pics.
~JOE~ Oh yeah, good fish too.

Looks like you guys hit summer peak. Was there a long stretch of stable weather prior to this? Did it rain the next day?

Pretty much a period of sunny, perfect weather with very little wind.
