While fishing in Michigan last week, I found my arms aren't long enough to hold a big fish out and still be able to see my phone screen to take a decent picture. I'm contemplating getting a "selfie" (Oh, how I hate that "word") stick. How do you guys handle fish pictures on a little boat?

If you have a way to safely secure / rest your phone on the kayak. There's lots of free apps you can download to take a timed photo (delayed a few seconds before it actually snaps a photo)

I imagine holding a selfie stick, a rod, a paddle and a wiggling fish all at the same time may get tough and eventually lead to a submerged piece of equipment. I'd offer a better option would be to get a phone mount or a gopro you can put in the front of you and then either use a timed app as suggested or do a gopro video and edit it and snap a pic off that later. But I really don't know cuz Ive never had to figure it out in person.

Don't worry about getting pictures...... Otherwise I would think that there are mounts available for a kayak for a camera or phone. If not, you may want to think about making a mount for your kayak that will hold a selfie-stick or something you could attach to your phone to use an existing camera mount for the kayak.

Newer Android models have the timed photo feature and I'm sure apple is on board as well.

This works. I have the same tripod and it only costs about 15 bucks.
