Using the BlueROV2 for filming trawl behavior

Hello, we are interested in understanding the behavior or our bottom trawl (from when is touches the bottom of the ocean floor to when it starts/ends trawling) and we were wondering if the BlueRov2 would work for this application. We have sites where depths are less than 100m and we trawl at a speed of around 2-2.5 knots. We tried attaching GoPros to the headline of the trawl but didn’t have much success as the camera was never pointing in the right direction. Any feedback regarding this would greatly be appreciated! Thanks!
