Very cool! clap Kinda odd not to see any Longears or Redbreasts, but they normally occupy more riverine areas and I didn't notice much current in the vid. Very cool to see the river from that POV. Thanks!

Thank you, glad you guys enjoyed it. Yes I was hoping for some Longears or some Rios. This was a slower part of the river. I didn't get to explore as much river as I'd hoped.

Yes I was just diving down with a mask and snorkel, no fins. It was interesting the bluegills and bass were less weary under that tree, I found some other structure with as many fish but they were camera shy.

We're already talking about our next trip!

Cool video, is the bass you're holding the one from the video?

Nope, the one I caught was swimming in a school with two others about his size. Its hard to tell in the video, but that bass was a hawg! I'm estimating the one in the video to be around 4 or 5 lbs. He could have eaten the one I caught, literally.
