Like it or not, the fishing world is changing incredibly fast due to technology…

Just when we all thought braided line was revolutionary years ago, today we have everything from fishing apps that tell us the best times to fish, to bait attractors, to drones that will drop our bait in the perfect spot…

Speaking of bait dropping drones, meet “Fitch,” the first casting drone made exclusively for fishing.

Does it record video?

Nope.

But it will drop your bait or lure in a honey hole up to 1,500 feet away!

Here’s how it works:

According to their site, here are some of the top benefits to this Fitch fishing drone:

  • Waterproof
  • Buoyant (can take off and land in both freshwater and saltwater)
  • 100% autonomous (the Fitch drone takes off, drops lure, and lands by itself)
  • 2 pounds of payload capacity (for heavier baits)
  • Phone app that tracks all of your drops

The only thing the site didn’t say was how much it is going to cost… sounds like they will be releasing prices, models, etc very soon, though.

What do you think?

Would you use a drone like this for fishing?

If you can’t cast it it on your own, get on a boat! Geez, it’s a sport, man/vrs. fish.

Nope, wouldn’t use it. Casting is part of the sport of catching the fish. Might as well have this take a stick of dynamite out & drop it. Row out to haul on the corpses…

This is cool….I myself always wanted a drone to cast my bait but I do know how to fly them. This option is much better for me since I do not need a remote.

How much and how big of a bait can it carry?

Would definitely use this while fishing from shore around the lakes here in TN. Tough in the summer when the water gets warm and the fish head to the deeper holes. This would assist in getting the line out to deeper holes without having a boat. Then if it does what it says, be able to send it to the same location once the deep hole is found.
