Have a look at aliexpress and search for underwater fish cameras
One of the guys I fish with has one on his kayak, he could easily identify what was happening around his burley pot, whether it be pinkies coming in for a look or scad feeding on the burley. Pretty cool, but not sure I’d get one with limited space on the kayak.

There are some cheaper than this but it was like this one

Or this one
https://m.aliexpress.com/item/325555008 ... 2555500824

Runs on 12v

EDIT: this is only if you want to see what’s happening under the boat in real time not if you want to film

There is a specialist one called a water wolf, can be configured to be a trolling cam or for bottom fishing. Think it starts around $200. There are some films on it on youtube.

I had one of those ones you drop down on a cable off the side. Was awesome to see what was going on down there, bit it only lasted about 6 months before the suitcase screen thingy died. Would like to get another one though, was very interesting.
