Incredible Drone Shot Footage of Mullet Run in Florida

By | Blog, Fish | No Comments

The team over at BlacktipH have managed to snag some amazing footage along the Florida coastline. What an epic display of nature at it’s finest!

The guys spent a week filming this epic mullet run and boy did it pay off! Billions of baitfish migrate south for winter and this brings is plenty of predators for a high octane display. The mullet run occurs every Autumn in Florida and spans long stretches of their pristine beaches.

How To Calibrate a SwellPro Splash Drone

By | Blog, Drones | No Comments

In this short video, you’ll learn the basics of calibrating and waterproof testing your SwellPro Splash Drone. This is of course very important for a number of reasons. Ensuring your drone is properly calibrating is essential for proper operation and a safe flight. Furthermore, making sure there are no leaks will ensure you don’t lose your drone to water ingress and end up with shorted internal circuitry.

Good to see the Splash Drone being used for its strengths, flying out over the water. You’ll even catch a nice landing and take off from the water to get an idea of this little beauty’s capabilities.

SwellPro Splash Drone Salt Water Testing

The folks over at UAV Wholesale have been hard at work putting the Splash Drone through some ocean testing. 90 Mile Beach provided the perfect setting to run the Splash Drone through its paces. Impressive results from this compact unit, with the salt and sand doing very little to deter the drone from braving the elements.

Welcome To Drone Fishing Australia

This site has been created for anyone interested in Drone Fishing.

It all started with myself buying a basic drone, then discovering the laws regarding where you can fly it. So as an unlicensed recreational drone user living in suburbia, I couldn’t find many places to fly it. Then I came to the realisation that on the beach would be perfect.

As a keen fisherman, I thought about a release mechanism to fly out the bait and tackle. I went to my local hobby shop to buy the mechanism and was unable to find anything suitable. As a trip to Fraser Island was coming up soon, I managed to bend some fish hooks, rig up a servo on a separate radio inside a small box and attached it to my drone. We tried it out and it worked brilliantly.

The only problem with our first trip was that we kept getting snapped off. Even using 100Lb mono. My second trip was a day trip up to Noosa North Shore, Cooloola Coast. We drove for about 20 minutes up the beach and pulled up. The weather was a bit rough and it was raining. I changed my leader to 50Lb steel thread, and pulled in a Jew fish & 2 x Taylor.

A few weeks later and a little bit of a redesign, I had come up with a simple mechanism that can attach to any Drone/Quadcopter.

We found that a lot of the cheaper drones that came with their own pre-transmitter, had specific camera channel output to control a camera.

With some help from Pico Technology, they have come up with a small circuit that can receive this output and change it to turn the servo to an on/off mode. Therefore removing the separate radio expense.

We endeavour to find products that suit Drone Fishing, including:

  • Drone Fishing release mechanisms.
  • A range of Drones/Quadcopter that we have tried and found suitable.
  • Specific tackle suitable for Drone Fishing that you may not find in your local tackle shop.

We’re also hosting a forum so everyone worldwide can talk about what tackle and rigs work for specific species, post pictures and videos, and learn more about fishing with a Drone. If you’d like to get involved, then Please contact us here.

We’ll also share the latest technological fishing products that we find interesting and provide technical support material & manuals for our products.

Happy drone fishing, can’t wait to see your next catch!
