Fishing For Tuna With A Drone

drone fishing featured

I had to post this when I saw it. Drones are all the rage this year, with the cost of even larger drones dropping to something more affordable to more people.

There have been some novel uses for drones so far, but it mostly boils down to aerial photography, and maybe the odd delivery goods system.

But what about helping out with real every day tasks. Like fishing.

Ok, its not the first thing that springs to mind, but look at the ingenuity of this drone use, to pinpoint deliver a baited hook right to where the fish are, thanks to the aerial cam, and save all that boring ‘waiting for the fish to find your hook’ stuff. Technology is all about time saving after all.

Fishing purists are no doubt unimpressed, but anyone who’s sat by the side of a fishing lake for an entire day without a proverbial nibble might see the draw of a system with better odds.

Enjoy the video below and let me know what you think. Is this an affront to fishery? Or just a smart way of reducing the odds.
