Let’s just file this drone activity under weird or silly and maybe call it a day? Really people, drone fishing? I can’t believe this is a thing. Norman Hirsch on the other hand disagrees. According to Hirsh, “drone fishing is kind of a new thing,” and he backs up his statement with a customized drone capable of holding and releasing fishing line.
There’s a new way to fish gaining popularity along Florida’s beaches.
“Drone fishing is kind of a new thing,” Norman Hirsch explains as he rigs his pole and drone.
His drone has a built in camera, and tracks height and distance. He customized his with a release, designed to hold onto the line, until you want to drop it in. He picks where they were biting Monday, 550 feet away from shore.
Maybe it’s just me, but I can’t imagine this being a very exciting activity. I guess we will just have to wait and see if this is just a passing fad or becomes a “thing.” Who knows, maybe we’ve got RTF fishing drones in our future.
