Welcome to some weekend fun and entertainment with drones. We spend a lot of time scouring the web for news, information and more on all the great drones around the globe. In our travels, we encounter some fun and funny stuff, and we want to start sharing that with you. Today we will take a look at more drone fishing.
No matter what the title says, we refer to this as our Good Idea / Bad Idea series, we just figured a new name was in order, suggestions welcome. Let it be known that we do not endorse or recommend anything we will post here, sort of a “do not try this at home” vibe, but somebody tried it, it was interesting or funny and here it is.
Next up in our series, let’s explore some fun with drones and the ocean. More specifically drones fishing.
Before we begin, let’s get a few things out of the way:
Drone legal and safety
This video by Sea Ucler shows a great example of drone fishing done right. Going out beyond the waves to cast your line using a DJI Phantom 4 drone is a great way to catch the perfect fish.
Epic, but bad idea
Most drone fishing attempts don’t go to plan, like this one. This video by The Fish Whisperer shows a great example a way drone fishing can go horribly wrong and cost you your DJI Phantom drone.
Good idea / bad idea wrap up
As always, we officially recommend you do not try this at home. We want you to always fly safe, to obey all drone laws, but also to have some fun. Of course, if you do try this, please share the details, it’s always fun to see some shenanigans.
If you think this entire series is a bad idea, let us know in the comments below. Otherwise, enjoy the crazy antics caught on film.
