Yup, I too have a GoPro and the bottom of the lake after using the suction cup mount. In conditions like what you are talking about, I have had better luck using the permanent mounting plates that use the 3M tape. Use a little alcohol to clean the surface to get rid of any oils, etc. and then you can attach and detach the camera when ever you need while maintaining the mount in place.
