Drone Carp Rig Release Brings Robots and Fishing One Step Closer [VIDEO]

You’ve found the perfect carp fishing spot, and now you need a rig release mechanism to drop your bait where you want it. Why not use a drone?

We’ve seen a drone catch a fish already, and though it was by no means a lunker, it still got us thinking.

There are numerous fishing applications that drones, ethically or not, can be used for. They provide what most would call an “unfair advantage.” But no matter where you stand on the issue of conservation, ethics, and privacy, it’s still pretty cool when you see drones do something like this.

Who could ever argue that using modern technology to battle an invasive species would be a bad idea? OK, maybe there are some, and maybe dropping a bait rig isn’t exactly engaging in warfare, but when these kind of examples are shown, it’s easier to understand the usefulness drones can award. Kudos to the video uploader, Dronexpert nl, for pushing the envelope.

What’s next, a drone that uses an elk call, or one that cleans up your spent casings? You may laugh, but keep an eye on this space, because when it happens we’ll be here to share it.
