So, we’ve heard about this whole drone fishing thing before. And while we’ve never done it, we thought it might be fun to introduce this unusual but effective hobby/sport to others.

We used to really enjoy fishing. But we’ve traditionally fished from a boat on a freshwater lake. That’s pretty simple – just cast where you want the hook to drop or move the boat to a different area. But it’s a little different when you’re trying to fish from the shoreline of the ocean or a really huge lake. Then, it’s difficult (and usually impossible) to cast out into deeper water beyond the breaking waves.

But that’s where the fish are. And if you want to catch them, that’s where you need to go.

Drone fishing

So here’s how it works. You get everything ready to go: hook, line and sinker. Then you attach the line to your drone. But you don’t simply tie it on, you generally connect it to a servo-activated device that will drop your line when you tell it to.
