Drones continue to grow in popularity, and with it, crews capture footage of grayhounding blue marlin or sailfish from angles you would previously need a chase boat or helicopter to shoot. Fishing aboard the Miss Behavin, these guys definitely had some fun as they put together this footage of their adventures down in Los Suenos, Costa Rica. Joe Cermele of Field and Stream favored the 1:09 mark of the video, however, I am partial to sequence around 3:08. Needless to say, I would be a little nervous of the drone clipping a line or getting a little too close to a jumping fish. I guess it’s only time until we find one of those videos.
The editors of Field and Stream were the first to uncover this video in their article in which Joe Cermele stated: “In the event that you didn’t notice, it seems everyone who has a GoPro camera also has a drone these days. I don’t, but I’m working on it. Drone footage is amazing, no doubt, but if you really stop and think about it, stuff you see in fishing videos is already starting to get pretty stock. We have the “fly down the river” shot, “the aerial perspective of someone casting” shot, and the “zoom out while releasing a fish” shot. But every once in a while, you find a video that goes well beyond the norm. I think this is it. The story line isn’t all that gripping; wealthy guys I’m jealous of charter a private jet to Costa Rica and catch a ton of marlin. The drone shots, however, are incredible. If you watch no other part of this, skip ahead to the 1:09 mark. Nailed it.”
