    All fun and games until you accidentally get the fishing line wrapped up in the props, and have to use your fishing pole to bring your (soaked) drone back to shore. At least at that point it's probably firmly attached to the fishing line and the pole :D:D:D

    Be careful if you try this as it is illegal in many states to fish like that.

    Bro I don't know about Fla but in MS depending if you were fishing in a state lake or state park lake
    there are regs to what you are legal to fish with . A private lake you can do pretty much what you want though .

    Thanks, but I was referring to luvmytj's comment. I was looking for specifics and not anecdotal comments.

    I honestly don't have any links to give you, but what he said.

    I have also heard game wardens talk about it but I have no solid proof. I guess I will retract me statement as I prefer to use source links and I failed to do so. [​IMG]

    You did not answer my question and if you can not back up what you say please do not comment. As LuvMyTJ just did with his retraction, which I appreciate and respect.

    I launched my line at sea over 100 times now the only time it get caught on props is when you are taking off or landing with the line attached. One time it was thread around the leg but I just clicked return to home and started winding my fishing rod in fast.

    Wow the government has got people running scared. When the people fear government you have tyranny. When the government fears the people you have freedom. In some people's minds if it looks like too much fun it must be illegal.

    I looked up assisted casting. Not one return discussed legality. In fact they sell RC boats specifically designed for assisted casting. They also make products for handicapped person to cast.
