    Deep Sea Fishing is really not that much fun until Spetember. I would have freaked. Great camera stabilizer though! If they didn’t have a camera stabilizer, you would have probbly got real sick watching this.

      The camera stabilization could likely be attributed to youtube itself. They have a feature that when you upload a video it will analyze it and if it notices that it is shaky will offer to stabalize it for you. It workes really good.
