I just picked myself up a kayak to use for fishing. But I also want to start shooting from it. I am posting in here to save the thread so I can come back and read through the 60 some pages here!

It's a great way to get up close to the wildlife quietly.

Very best,

I have very little room in my 10' sit in kayak. I am looking for a setup to keep my D750 and 70-200 protected. I see that a few are using the Watershed bags which look great. Which size would you suggest? Maybe the Watershed Ocoee? Any other options for a body and 70-200? I am not as concerned with complete submersion, more for drippage and random water/spray. Any other suggestions?

I use a D750 / Sigma 150-600 in a Chattooga bag with the optional padded liner and am very happy with that combo. I think the Ocoee might be a bit small for you. Whatever you get I would recommend the padded liner.

I sit in the kayak with the Chattooga pretty much between my legs. It is secured by cables to the kayak. Once out on the water I am able to open/close the bag without any problem. I always close and seal the bag when I am entering/exiting the kayak. I use a sit on top kayak if that makes any difference.

edit - whenever the camera goes in the Chattooga the lens is in the fully retracted position with the sun shade on so it is ready to use when I pull it out. I have a wrist strap secured to the camera tripod mount and always put my wrist through the strap before removing the camera from the bag. Same thing in reverse for putting the camera in the Chattooga - the wrist strap stays on until the camera is in the bag

I just got my kayak this week, a Jackson Tripper 12, great Kayak, combination of kayak and canoe IMHO, great seat, lot's of room, huge cockpit for easy entry, only downside is it's red, white and blue. It's very stable and I felt immediately confident (not overly, I'm a long time canoe paddler) in my ability to take my camera along.
I got out yesterday a.m. a little later than I wanted to and being Labor Day weekend, it was pretty crowded already. I managed to find a small secluded cove and got some decent shots before the light got too harsh. I was using a Water Shed Ocoee dry bag. I think I will move up to the Chattooga bag though, kind of a tight squeeze with my 7dII and 100-400II, I had to take the grip off and go with a single battery and there's no way I could've added my 1.4xTC on there.

Shot from an Old Town Vapor Angler kayak (10 feet long). I placed a boat cushion just in front of the seat, and kept the camera in a 20L dry bag for entry, exit, or if not likely to need camera for quick access, then set it on top of the dry bag when in "prime territory". I held on to my version 1 of the 100-400L and 7D for a while thinking that would be my kayak outfit, but the quality of the Mark II versions led me to sell the version 1 lens, but I've kept the 7D with a short range zoom for family and travel type stuff.

The moose weren't visible on my initial pass of this shoreline, but I saw 2 dark spots as I was headed back to camp and figured it was the cow and calf that I've seen on my trail cams in this area since June. The cow disappeared while the calf went deeper into the bush, so I drifted along until I got a good angle and waited for it to work its way back into view. As I focused on shooting the calf, I could hear splashing off my right shoulder and turned to find the cow had somehow slipped back into the water undetected and she was feeding her way toward me. The wind was drifting me closer, so I occasionally back paddled to avoid crowding her or getting between her and the calf. They both fed for at least half an hour totally ignoring me, until I decided I had enough pics and left the area. One humorous aspect was the cow would blow bubbles like a 3 year old in a bathtub, wish I shot a video clip with sound to capture that!

Fantastic John, something a little different. Last year I watched a bull doing the same thing with the bubble blowing. I see you have no fly's around lol

I was able to get out to Caddo Lake today. There are more birds here than I've seen the last few years. Not a lot of birds but enough to make it worthwhile.

This is almost a 1:1 crop. Just can't get any closer without a blind.
