Was doing some drone fishing today,still bit windy but out there,,had drone in hover about to clip my trace on when it thought it would drift back a bit so I had to shooooooo it away,,I wacked it into the sand and thankfully it stopped which was a surprise, oh no,then realize it got me ,,1 finger cut and blood blister on other finger,this made me angry so blew the sand off and launched again,sweet it was off this time and came back when it was done dropping line out,,after all this I only catch 6 rig sharks,boring..I like the warning in app which is first pic,,anyway no drones were harmed, just the pride:):)
