Derek Klingenberg, a farmer from Kansas, might be the most tech-savvy farmer out there.
The drone enthusiast recently used his DJI Phantom 2 quadcopter, equipped with fishing line and a camera, to catch a small bluegill fish. He used a fake worm for the bait and flies the fish back to shore.
He says it took about 10 minutes to snag the fish, managing to do so no fishing rod – just the bait.
“I tied a fishing line to the drone complete with the bobber and hook, and I forgot bait, but I found a plastic worm lying around, and off it went,” the 36-year-old Klingenberg tells ABC News. “I’m always trying to to think fun things to do with my drone, and I thought why not go fishing?
Klingenberg isn’t the first to use a drone to catch a fish. This YouTube video below, uploaded Aug. 22, 2013 shows a drone catching a fish. Pretty skilled on multiple levels – the flying and the fishing. And bold as it’s clearly not the Splash waterproof drone.
