Best drone for fishing – what to look for in a fishing drone

A fishing drone is a significant investment and in order to find the right drone for your needs it’s important to do you research and know where you are looking for! In this article we look at the features most important when looking at purchasing a fishing drone as well as running a fishing drone comparison on some of the most popular fishing drone models. So what to look for when buying a fishing drone?

1. Battery life/ Flight time

Long battery life is a must for drone fishing. All successful fishing trips require time and patience and you do not want your drone losing battery power mid-flight. You will need ample time to cast your line get a bite and bring your drone back.

2. Stability (Wind Rating)

When you are out on the water you can bet there will at least be a little wind. You want a drone built to withstand and operate in these conditions. A beaufort rated drone will give you a factual rating resulting from vigorous testing.

Beaufort Rating up to 6
(Wind gusts between 22-27 knots)

3. Payload

You want a drone that is built to carry your line and bait which is why a decent payload is a must.

With fishing comes water! For longevity of your investment you absolutely want to invest in a waterproof drone. Waterproof ratings are rigorously tested and essentially the higher the number the higher the rating. We have a full article in our blog section explaining these ratings so please take a look for more information.
