Veteran fisherman... looking for some feedback on the best options for taking quality camera photos of yourself and the fish when you fish alone most of the time. Happy trails, ButtsD

I set my smart phone up in the boat and turn on the voice command on the camera. Works pretty good. Practiced a few times so I know where to set everything up.

All responses here are excellent. That is exactly how I do. I have only done the mini tripods with the multijointed legs. The ram mount seems more stable though. Go pros have great burst features and a multitude of user friendly mounts.

I have used both a tripod and and a Ram camera mount on my boat to take "selfies". I made some practice shots so I knew in advance where to place the tripod and how to set the camera. After hooking the fish, leave it in your net while turning on the camera and setting the auto timer. Hit the button, grab the fish from the net and hold it up. I took this picture using this method while fishing alone.

Most new(ish) digital cameras have timers and "burst" mode where you can set them to take 4-10 pictures after the timer goes off. It works well - set timer, get fish out of net, take pictures, and then release. You can then pick the best of the ones taken.

It's easiest to practice ahead of time without a fish - get the camera in a set position & play around with where you are in the boat to get it dialed in for when you get a fish.
