Watch a Crafty Fisherman Reel in a Drone

Aug 10, 2015

A man fishing on a San Diego pier hooked something a bit more expensive than a fish last Thursday — he caught a drone.

Lucky for us, the drone caught the entire thing on video before making an emergency landing. In a video uploaded to YouTube Aug. 7, even drone operator Tice Ledbetter had to admit that the fisherman's cast was insanely accurate, remarking in the video description: "What a jerk! Gotta admit though, that cast was spot on!" Here's a glimpse at the footage Ledbetter says he was filming at the time.
