A link to a video I took a few days ago of some brook trout in a small stream

Hey guys or gals, I hope i'm doing this right, it's my first post. Razz But I'd like to share a video I took of some Brook Trout feeding in a small stream I have been fishing recently.There are a few nice ones swimming around and its cool to see what they do. The video is 20 minutes long so skip around if you like, towards the end a nice brookie shows off to the camera. Enjoy!Laugh

Very nice indeed. Wonderful things those GoPro cameras. I love the mirror image cast of the Trout on the bottom of the water surface. And the white tips of the Brookie fins.

The best gopro videos are the ones where you leave it be for about 45 minutes. Those are the ones where you get some really good wildlife footage.

From your video, I was reminded that any disturbance on the water is noticeable on still waters. Lesson: it's best to stalk your quarry from the shore, rather than in the stream, if possible.

I have a few videos myself. Some of them were taken after chancing on a pool or run that was deeper than I thought - may as well film what's there!

These videos were taken by dropping the camera in the stream and walking away.

Hey guys, I didn't want to start a new post for this but here is another video of Brook trout feeding and holding in a pool. This time there is about 30 all in one spot, do they call it a school of trout? i don't know. The video is quite long so don't bother watching it all but just click around and watch some trout. You can see a few swimming and a few moving up to the surface to get food. Enjoy! Brook trout School underwater

Cool video, thanks for posting. Amazing how quickly they go up for a meal and return to their lie, I can better appreciate how many times I've had my lure hit within inches of it hitting the water--you have to be ready. Also apparent how easily they are spooked.

They do get spooked easily, I cut the video short but later on I started fishing the pool and half of the trout disappear almost the instant I get there. The front half however didn't notice me and I manage to get a small one to hit a jig. I have that video up on my page I just didn't post that here.
