The Birth of Remote Control Fishing

7 May

Remote Control Fishing began with some kids tying fishing line to a remote control toy boat, and catching a catfish with it. Now, that looks like good clean fun. They almost sank their rc boat. Mmm, looks like someone forgot their (“RC Fishing Pole”)
Maybe
this was their inspiration, what gave the kids the idea?

There’s a saying “Necessity is the mother of invention”, which in the case of RC Fishing, it basically means, there had to be a way to do it without the rc boat sinking when the fish hit the hook.
Those kids, that simple video, and ingenuity may have started this new phenomonen. It even has a name now, it’s now officially called Remote Control Fishing, We still just call it RC Fishing.
So, that was then, and this is now.

Remember Flash Gordon?…, Lost in Space, or My Favorite Martian? Have you thought about futuristic things, like “going places man has never gone before”? I do all the time, that’s the thing I like about RC Fishing. The words REMOTE CONTROLLER, or RADIO TRANSMITTER remind me when I was a kid, if it flew, or buzzed, with the push of a button, I wanted it, battery operated toys were the future. Just wait till I beam me up a Big Bass! Mmm, it sounds pretty scientific. But,…….. I’m going to give this Remote Control Fishing a try!

Here is Wikipedia’s definition of the new phenomenon called rc fishing.Why do they have to be so scientific, can’t they just say rigging a rc boat to catch a fish?

“Quoted” from Wikipedia -“Remote control fishing – Fishing can also be done using a remote controlled boat. The boat is usually one to three feet long and runs on a small DC battery. A radio transmitter controls the boat. The fisherman connects the fishing line/bait to the boat; drives it; navigating the water by manipulating the remote controller. The technique is growing in popularity. The methods of remote control vary, from tying a piece of fishing line and bait to the boat, and driving,(retrieving) the hooked fish, with the boat. Another method is using an apparatus designed so that once the fish is hooked the line disconnects from the boat, and the fish is retrieved with the fishing rod.”

Here’s some RC FIshing Video’s you might enjoy seeing!
