You may have seen a video that went viral of Australian anglers catching longtail tuna after their drone places their bait 400 yards off a beach located in New South Wales. Drones are able to hold bait on the surface while providing the resistance needed in order to release a kite clip. A downfall to drones however, is the fact that they only have about a 20 minute battery life.
Drones also have a built-in camera that allows you to perfectly scout for fish, scrutinizing topography, and illuminating nuances of fish behavior.
Capt. Mike Weinhofer, a Key West fishing guide explained his experience by saying, “I’ll put the drone up about 100 feet from the kite and a little above it, and point the camera down toward the baits. I can see sailfish a minute or more before the bite, 15 or 20 feet underwater, just swimming circles around the bait. But drone battery life limits such views to brief glimpses. Weinhofer likens drone use to cameras on trolled dredges. We’re seeing things we couldn’t see before. It’s amazing how many fish swim up to a dredge, or with the drone, how many fish circle the kite bait, and then just fade away. It’s a window into what’s happening. It gets you wondering about how to improve your presentation.”
Using your general knowledge when using drones in the key to a successful fishing trip. Capt. Jay Shields, a Massachusetts guide and fishing-media producer explained, “The drone is like a close-up Google Earth perspective. There may be five fingers off a sandbar that, from the boat, all look the same. But the drone shows one is a little deeper, or the drop-off a little steeper. That deeper or steeper finger is what the biggest fish are going to converge on.”
