Drone Fishing for Bass (Brilliant or Terrible Idea??)

Sounds crazy right? We tried kite fishing for bass a few weeks back but there wasn't enough wind and one of our viewers suggested we use the drone instead. So... Shelby and I headed out into the Everglades with our DJI Phantom 3 Drone, live shiners and a fishing pole. 

Best part about drone fishing, you can see the fish from an entirely new (and awesome!) perspective.

This was a blast!

    Absolutely.   give it a couple years using any drone for fishing for certain species will definitely be outlawed. 
    People use statistics the way a drunk uses a street light, for support rather than illumination.

    There are many roads to travel
    Many things to do.

    It's a great drone. Although as soon as we can swing it we're upgrading to the newest model. It has a feature that follows you so you don't have to control it the entire time. Very appealing!

    He really likes it...he got it from a guy who was upgrading...several extra batteries and a nice Pelican case.

    I like your buggy....I have a 1980 Landcruiser FJ 40 I was going to build into a buggy...but it is probably a bigger project than I want to try.
