Default Pier rat catches a drone!

You know we all want to do it at some point. Well this guy did it! Just not with a cobia jig.

From article: "Ledbetter managed to fly his quadcopter about half a mile to a safe landing, where he spent some time untangling the fishing line wrapped around one of the quadcopter’s rotors."

That's a new way of getting spooled.

Great cast! I guess the paparazzi (however you spell it) will be using drones to fly up Angelina Joile's skirts pretty soon.

honestly I hope its the the other way around. where drones are not allowed around the BIG piers. can you imagine 10 drones flying around the pier during cobia season. there be some pissed off people throwing jigs left and right at those things. LOL

I think it was staged, notice how they zoomed in on the guy with the rod.

On which end? What happens when the drone flys into your line with a fish on?
