Would you use a remote-controlled fishing boat?

They look like toys, but they are far from it. Remote-controlled fishing boats seem to be catching the eyes of anglers these days. Whether they're buying it as a gag gift or out of curiosity, people are finding them quite interesting to use.

Remote-controlled (RC) fishing boats are easy to use. Just use your preferred bait to tempt hungry fish, and get your RC fishing boat out on the water. Once it indicates a bite, forward motion sets the hook.
