Do you like Boating, Bass, and Drones? Took a trip out in some skinny water figured I’d catch some bass, I also took my drone to practice some “Touch And Go’s” off the poling platform on the boat. I sent the Drone up to scout for some activity then broke out my favorite Lamiglass Rod with a Lucky Craft Sammy and casted in the direction of where the drone had spotted some tailing Bass.
I was able to scare up a few schoolie bass and also captured some nice footage of the native birds from the Drone trip.
The Canadian geese were flying in groups. I also captured zoom footage of a heron that was stalking the shoreline and fishing the shallows, targeting and catching it’s dinner.
I always pay attention to nature, especially what the sea birds are doing and catching. If you look close they will show you the bait fish that is in the water at that time. You must pay close attention so you can match the hatch to better target the predators you are looking to catch.
( bait fish du jour)
After catching several striped bass I turned my attention back to the drone. The sun was starting to set in the West, I figured it was a good time to continue practicing my drone flying skills off of my boat. I must say I was very nervous launching my drone from my boat but with a little practice it was super easy and the drone footage you get from out on the water is extraordinary.
If you don’t have a Drone yet I highly recommend Mavic 2 Zoom. But if you are budget conscious go for the Mavic Mini or the Mavic Mini 2. If you need help deciding or have questions just shoot me an e-mail at [email protected].
I was able to capture a few shots of the sun in the western sky and of the shorebirds doing their thing.
It was great to get out on the boat, catch Lil Bass, enjoy nature, and practice flying the drone…….Fish-On!!
