Using a Drone to Find & Catch Giant Fish 2

  • Published: 08 May 2019
  • In this episode, I go drone fishing for giant fish with Sundance Marine USA, my brother, Ryan Nitz, and a few friends along the shallow beach waters of Florida. Our goal was to drive along the beach, searching for large schools of fish. Ryan noticed a large school of jacks on the surface. I tossed my lure at the school, and within seconds, my reel started screaming! It was a monster jack crevalle (over 25lbs). After catching that massive jack crevalle, I put the drone in the air and quickly found a huge bull shark with giant cobia following it. We tried to catch the cobia, but unfortunately, the shark and cobia disappeared before we could get close to them. The good news was there was another giant school of jacks near the boat. Ryan tossed a lure and instantly hooked up to another giant jack crevalle. Ryan tossed a live bait and hooked another monster. Barish fought the first jack and Kevin fought the second fish. As Kevin was fighting the jack, the rod snapped, and the fish was lost! Barish managed to land his giant jack. The jack crevalle was the biggest fish Barish had ever caught, a new personal record! Kevin managed to hook up to another jack crevalle. As he was fighting the fish, a huge hammerhead shark tried to eat it! I tried to catch the hammerhead, but unfortunately, it disappeared. Before arriving at the power plant, Jake managed to catch one more giant jack crevalle. Once we arrived at the power plant, Kevin hooked up to a giant bull, the biggest shark of his life (over 300lbs). After we released the bull shark, Jake tried to catch a goliath grouper. We hooked a grouper that nearly pulled Jake in the water! To our surprise, the grouper was around 50lbs. It was incredibly strong!!

                      11:16 and 9:39 , I been noticing how the fish starts to lay down and stop moving, is that because it’s tired or like is the something on the bait that makes them pass out for a few seconds

                                      I would recommend fishing out of either Tampa Bay or Cape Canaveral.

                                      Hey blacktipH im hoping u see this... Last night my friend passed away doing what he loves the most which is fishing he was a huge fan of ur channel and even made his own dedicated to being like you. Last night he was shark fishing and while kayaking his bait out had a seizure and sadly drowned. It sucks for this to happen to him because he was only 16 too young he was so attached to fishing and would give anything for it he took me shark fishing but we didn't catch anything so we were planning on going again but somewhere else I got the terrible news this morning thank you for so much for your channel that is dedicated to fishing just like my friend
