Sky Rigger takes fishing to another level by enabling drone pilots to safely fly a bait or lure out to sea and silently target fish from above.
Sky Rigger is an innovative fishing line release mechanism that allows users to deep water fish while remaining safely on shore.
Australia has some of the most productive offshore fisheries in the world. However, for many anglers, these fishing opportunities are inaccessible due to the high cost and skill required for boat ownership.
Sky Rigger gives everybody the opportunity to catch the fish-of-a-lifetime in a safe onshore environment. By attaching to the legs of a drone and using a drone-safe line release mechanism, Sky Rigger makes rigging the lure or bait a breeze.
With drones becoming an affordable tool for capturing outdoor adventures, it was logical to use drones to make offshore fishing more accessible and safer for all. With the ability to film the experience from a different perspective, anglers will be able to build the legend of the ‘fish that got away’ in a whole new way.
In 2016, Sea Ulcer created waves on social media with their home-made drone fishing rig. Riding this wave of interest, the team at Sea Ulcer partnered with Ingenuity to refine the product and help it meet the requirements of such a demanding environment. Without the partnership between Ingenuity and Sea Ulcer, the product simply would not have made it to market.
