Is he a high-tech innovator, or a lazy bastard?

We’ll let you be the judge. But whether you cheer him or jeer him, his ‘crazy’ idea worked!

This is the kind of thing that happens when a farmer gets bored and creative.

Practical people that they tend to be, they look for an outlet for that creative energy.

This bro turned it toward fishing.

Now, his catch won’t be inspiring the next great American novel, by any stretch of the imagination.

But he DID catch something.

And he did it in a really innovative way.

He’s got a fishing line…

a bobber…

and a drone.

Yes. You read that correctly.

He brought his drone to the fish pond.

He dropped a line in the water.

Perhaps farmer Derek Klingenberg had too much time on his hands a couple of years ago, or maybe he had a lot of creativity. He might just have wanted to catch a fish for dinner. Whatever the inspiration, Klingenberg found a new way to fish. He uses a drone.

Klingenberg’s drone fish video, which was an immediate hit on social media, captures his first-ever attempt, and a successful one at that, at using his drone to fish. The drone drops the line in the water and soon pulls up a decent-size fish. Klingenberg captures the moment in a photo and uploads it to Snapchat.-WesternJournalism

No kidding. He’s a farmer with an internet hobby.

We didn’t see that coming.

This was not the Kansas farmer’s first foray into the YouTube world. Klingenberg has a collection of quirky videos, mostly music videos he created, posted also. –WesternJournalism

So what’s everybody think about drone fishing?

Is it an innovation or an abomination?

Would you give it a shot or a pass?
