With emerging technologies, the days of cane poles and seine nets is over. From fish finders to advancements in rod and reels, the modern angler will do anything he can to gain a small advantage. Now that Best Buy has the 3DRobotics Solo Drone that can hook up with a GoPro camera, it just got even easier to find the secret fish hideaway.


I love the idea of using the Solo Drone to help catch more fish for the supper plate. Imagine being able to skim out over the water and have an extra set of eyes. Boats with towers allow fishermen to see down into the water clearer and further, and find both bait and fish. It’s not even close to fair. The fish don’t have a chance against this kind of James Bond tech. With self-driving you can concentrate on working the GoPro while the Solo Drone hovers effortlessly. Yes, this is real.

What You Need To Catch Fish

  • Bait: Some days it just doesn’t pay to get out of the bed. You’ve got so much faith in the fact you are going to find bait, you don’t even buy a couple dozen shrimp in case. Some days the wind is blowing too hard and you can’t see the bait under the waves. Imagine being able to send your Solo Drone out over the water and find the elusive bait ball. It’s out there somewhere and fishing does not have to be fair. Fish are very smart. Use every tool in your arsenal to find the next giant.drone
  • Fish: Sight fishing works! Whether you are trolling for kings in the Gulf of Mexico or spying bonefish in the Florida Bay, sight fishing is going to improve your chances of success. Now you can send your Solo Drone out over the salty flats and find where the fish are lurking. Now you too can hover over the bait ball and clearly see what species is jumping out of the water. This is a dream come true.
