Default Underwater Drones !

Seems to be quite the kirfuffle lately over drones... Now they're making "underwater" drones, for fishing and photography.

This one has a fish-finder built in, a 4K camera (really high resolution, for the tech-impaired), and "precision remote hook/bait drop" which is basically an arm that you tie your line to.

The concept & execution is pretty sweet, if you ask me... What do you think about it ?

I like the one that has the poison darts and the mini torpedoes.

I don't think it fits in a 10 inch hole but still very cool.

Very cool. Going to be interesting to see how much they are. I think they would be a lot more fun then a regular drone.

I'd guess between $750 & $1500...

Sometimes I don't use a rod , sometimes no hook either. Still fun catching 5 lb jacks with your hands
