Fishing techniques are evolving more and more technologically, and with the tremendous popularity of drones in recent years, these two areas could only tie together to enhance the fishing experience. SwellPro has launched SplashDrone3, a drone that takes you offshore to find out where the shoals are and to directly carry your line (with up to 10 lures on it) over the area. Clearly, it is resistant to water, salt and is very stable even in unfavorable marine weather conditions. This medium is designed to carry a line up to 1 kilometer long with the ability to release bait exactly where you need it. Unlike some home-made drone fishing platforms, the release modules on SplashDrone 3 deploy the line: just use the appropriate remote control with a flick of a switch. The carrying capacity is more than a 1 kg and allows more than 10 baits to be carried on each cast or extended cast a heavy live bait when hunting sharks or giant tuna. On a single battery charge, 3 to 6 casts can be made, which, thanks to a powerful propulsion system, allows even large sizes of fish to be caught. After leaving the bait, it will automatically return to where it left off, leaving you free to engage in fishing.

Fish Finder Camera

SplashDrone3 can be equipped with a Fish Finder Camera, a waterproof camera that allows you to ferret out where schools of fish are even when there is little light, providing all the information you need both above water and below.
