Do you ever just sit there in your favorite fishing spot and wonder what it would be like if you could just cast your bait up into or against some structure that you know is holding some big fish, but it’s out of reach for you to cast up into? There is a solution, and now you can do it. It’s called drone fishing. Drone casting has been used by high tech fishermen for many years where they add a trolling release mechanism to an existing drone, but it was not the perfect solution. But now SwellPro has created a model that is made for fishing, a real deal fishing drone. It is called the Fisherman FD1.
The Fisherman FD1 Fishing Drone from SwellPro is a game changer for enabling fishermen to get their baits farther out, past where they could cast with a fishing pole alone, to target those fish that nobody can reach.

With the Fisherman FD1 Fishing Drone you can troll your lure to attract fish like trout, kings, stripers, and more. The optional TrollSafe release device will release the line when a fish strikes, so you can fight the fish with your fishing pole. There are also underwater drones, which can be found here.
Where Can I Use A Fishing Drone?
With a fishing drone, I can sit nicely on the comfortable sandy beach in one of my fishing beaches in Bodega Bay. I can then take my drone, hook up my salted squid baited fishing line, and fly my drone far out to deeper waters, or up to those circled rocks and target some huge rockcod and lingcod. Fish On!
The SwellPro Fisherman FD1 Fishing Drone has two optional electric payload release mechanisms available that will remotely and precisely drop baits at your target location with a simple push of a button. There is the PL1-F Mechanical payload release that does not have a camera, for simple casting. A nice upgrade is the PL2-F Payload release that does include an angle adjustable camera to give you that real time vision you need for targeting the perfect spot to fish, and drop your bait. With the optional FPV goggles, you can also view live HD video from the PL2-F to see exactly where the fish are. The camera’s wide dynamic range maximizes details, even in the glare of the sun.
Finally A WaterProof Fishing Drone
The fuselage of the SwellPro Fisherman drone is made from industrial grade ABS and is 100% water sealed and pressure tested. The external motors are also waterproof, and the internal electronics are coated for further corrosion resistance. Drones are a costly investment, and you don’t want to lose your drone, or ruin your drone, when an accident happens from the wind, a wave, or a mid-air encounter with a seagull. Kick up your fishing experience a notch by adding a fishing drone to your tackle setup today and cast your baits out there where you know the big fish are hiding.
