Saltwater Fishing Drone / Saltwater Fishing

Saltwater Fishing Drone
Saltwater Fishing Drone

Our design features a new type of fishing device, which changes the way of saltwater fishing. We have a vision of future saltwater fishing without any fishing rod. Instead, every recreational fisherman uses a saltwater fishing drone. A remote control is used to manipulate the saltwater fishing drone in order to release the fishing line and bait from the air at higher elevations. When the floating jerk bait sinks, the “saltwater fishing drone” detects the signal that a fish is caught and releases electric current to stun the fish and pull it back.
