Now I've seen it all, from RC boats and drones that drag your lure out to where you want it ... now here's the cross between a potato gun and a surf rod. Have at it folks! Fire in the hole ... BOOM!

this has beeen going on for awhile. you also buy bait launchers that are like slingshots that go on your rod. Bill dance was using one a long time ago fishing near a dam. you could only get so close to it so they were launching lures up to the spillway.

I have a buddy that fishes with one of the air cannons. It's amazing to be honest.

When I lived in Key West I saw a fella that used a kite for the same purpose. He used a cloths pin to attach his line to it. Seemed to work ok.

Next up after the Tracker III rebuild will be re-purposing my trusty old potato cannon. Pure redneck genius.
