Why is this in science? In most science videos, we do not only see pictures, but also get things explained.

#1 I don't think it really needs an explanation. The line is obviously attached to the drone on a slip wire connection, as soon as there is a tuna on the line the weight releases it from the drone which can then continue to film and the guy turns his little handle a few times and eats tuna for the next three weeks. :squirrel:

Those sneaky inventive Aussies.....wish I could give it a go. I have tried balloons and kites to get my line far out , but this is way better since you can see the schools of fish. ;)

I don't really understand how this works, and how didn't the drone go down in water when both the tuna and the fisher where pulling on it.

#7 The fishing line is held to the drone by a small rubber band that breaks when the fish hits the bait and tugs on it.

Yea everything except the slip wire connection. :D

The concept, surprisingly, is remarkably simple.

Step 1: Attach a hook baited with octopus, to a drone.
Step 2: Rig the other end of the very, very long line up to a big-game fishing rod.
Step 3: Fly the drone out over the ocean and using a GoPro and iPad search for schools of tuna.
Step 4: Drop the line into the middle of the fish and wait for them to latch on.
Step 5:The force of the fish snaps a rubber band that’s connected to the drone – reel in your dinner as normal!
