    Default Drones: The next new thing for bait release

    Do you think it may catch on here?

    Drone fishing comes to the Palm Beaches - wptv.com

    Not while I have an air rifle or a catty

    A No Drones rule as already been written into our club rules next to the no bait boat rules.
    If you what to play with boats and drones use the local park.

    I know one commercial that use them to deliver your meal, just ring them up, order your breakfast and tell them what peg your in and presto, comes flying in but I don't know what they do about seagulls, just thought of that. However-marks for innovation but I think I will stick with my flask and sandwiches.

    Would a 8mm pellet knock one out of the sky.

    Nothing more than a toy for the none serious anglers, same as the bait boats and the remote controlled submarine fish finder I posted about a couple of weeks ago.

    Mind you, if someone bought me a sub I might be tempted to have a play....

    If it had anti-drone missiles and anti bait boat torpedoes it might have a use as a last resort

    My only foray into this realm was I bought a fish finder from a junk shop for £20 only to find I could buy a new one on eBay for £20. It was a big float with a sonar device hanging from it attached to 30ft of cable and a hand held monitor. I lobbed it in the river and frightened all the fish away, then it kept floating into the bank. Then it wouldn't work, the screen kept going blank. So I went back to relying on the old fashion pot luck; still caught beggar all but at least I could dream the fish were there just lurking.
