Since 2008 “gleno2008″ (his YouTube handle) has Entertained us with his Awesome Homemade Remote Control Boats For Fishing!
A combination of skills, imagination, and know-how is why we’ve dubbed Gleno2008 our Rc Fishing Man of the month! He has a real knack for assembling the most extreme of all Rc fishing boats, then sharing his gripping adventures with us on YouTube for years. With cam onboard capturing every moment of his epic battles between rc boat and fish he has managed to amass over 500,00 views on his YouTube channel Mean Machines.
Upon closer inspection of this spectacular rc fishing machine we notice how for one he enhanced his rc boat to give it more stability. After all he likes going after big fish, so buoyancy will make a big difference when the battle ensues. A pontoon on each side attached to the body seems to do the trick. Pontoons would be easy to add to any rc boat with a simple glue gun and a couple of pop bottles, (I’ll have to try that), I remember seeing that once in a rc fishing video from 2012 featuring the Fish Fun Ed Hardy Rc Fishing Boat, and Carp Fishing. On closer inspection another feature is that his boat design incorporates what looks like a rc plane motor, giving the boat an aerodynamic feel, like a swamp boat. Why we waited so long to induct this guy into the Rc Fishing Hall of Fame I’m not sure!
“What other feature’s do we see, oh”, a built in fishing rod. Not only a regular fishing pole to pull the fish in, Glen’s designed his to rell in the fish too. A small bell on the end of his Rc Fishing Pole alerts him that he has a fish onboard, and with the flick of a button on the remote the fun begins! A small motor reels in the fishing line to the rc boat, then the airplane motors engage and he navigates the fish to his location! Here’s A Big Rc Fishing Shout Out To Glen2008!

Watch Us Go Remote Control Fishing On Animal Planet September 30th 8pm!
We’ve seen alot of good Rc Fishing videos here. This new one we found on Youtube the other day gives us a unique perspective into Remote Control Fishing with “The RC Fishing Pole”
What starts out as Fish Fun Co.’s Ed Hardy Model gets some interesting modifications. What’s interesting are the two extensions he added to the boat for added stability. It’s not particularly advisable to go after big fish unless you use the line release feature, added buoyancy to the boat will save it if you happen to hook a big one.As for the video he doesn’t quite catch the intended carp he mentioned, but said it must have been about 18 pounds.
The Radio Ranger RC Fishing Boat!
The sea was calm, the day was hot and the wiry little man stalking down the beach with a big rod under one arm and a little boat under the other looked for all the world like a demented angler who had given up fishing for towing toy boats through the surf on the end of his fishing line. But looks are deceiving. The angler was Herb Goodman of Lake Worth, Florida, a remarkably dedicated shark fishem1an. Herb was no stranger to Boynton Beach that Sunday afternoon in mid-July. And the boat under his arm was no plaything. It was an ingenious device he built for launching baits, specifically shark baits in the two to five-pound category. The craft was thirty-six inches overall. Outriggers contained two six-volt Ray-0-Vac batteries for powering two small motors originally designed for bailing out a boat. Propulsion was by aluminum paddle wheels, one on each side of the hull. Inside the miniature vessel was an electronic guidance system that could be activated by a compact wireless transmitter from shore. Herb propped his fiberglass Harnell rod and 12/o Penn reel on shore, scooping a hole in the sand for the rod butt and bracing the reel with a slab of driftwood. He put the reel on clicker and paid out his 130-pound-test dacron line to the water's edge. At the end of the line was fiftteen feet of flexible cable terminating in two 12-o Sobey hooks, both firmly skewered into the bow and stern of a whole bonito weighing about seven pounds. If the belly of the bonito seemed to have an unnatural bulge it was because Herb had inserted half a sash weight, which would later hold the bait down. When everything was ready, Herb waded the boat and bonito just out beyond the riffling surf, loaded the bait aboard and set the craft adrift. On shore he flipped the switch of the small transmitter and the boat's paddle wheels began churning. Slowly it moved out into deeper water, throwing up a small wake and towing the heavy leader and line behind it. The 12/o chattered evenly and the dacron moved out through the guides. Minutes later Herb squinted toward the tiny vessel that was now barely a white speck some three hundred yards from shore. "That should do it," he said, and threw the reel in gear. Line stopped. The bait dragged off the stem into the water. Herb manipulated the transmitter again and the craft executed a right turn and headed back toward the beach. "Can't use the boat all the time," Herb told me as he snapped his reel out of gear and dropped down on the sand beside it. "When there's waves it doesn't work right. Can't keep it on course. Takes calm days like this, then she goes perfect." He peered out at the little boat homing in on us. "Now all we got to do is wait and see what happens," he said, smiling. Things have been happening to Herb Goodman at Boynton Beach Inlet every Sunday for longer than he cares to remember. They all concern sharks, and the only thing that. occasionally breaks up the routine is a giant ray. His most recent conquest was a nose-to-tail-tip fourteen-foot specimen that put up a two-hour battle and weighed about a thousand pounds. The fact is he likes it. lie likes the challenge, the excitement, the rough-and-tumble fight and the crowd ~attracts-the people who can't quite believe what they see this spunky little man in a natty straw hat haul out of the ocean on a Sunday afternoon. He doesn't have a fancy boat, nor do his catches have the revered reputations of sailfish or marlin. But no one who has ever setn him in action will ever doubt that Herb Goodman's sport isn't big-game fishing in all its glory.
