Took a group of family and friends to Kettle this past Friday and decided to do some filming. Member "Heberly" tagged along and we had a decent evening. Water temps were 72 when we got there around 3:00PM and ended up dropping to 68 I believe at dusk.

Fish were actively feeding on top at 4:00 and continued to steady rise until 8:00 then it slowed down.

Fish were hitting on anything from size 12 adams, size 12 royal wulff, 14 BWO, 14 black gnat, 14 yellow sulphur, 16, adams, 16 bwo, 18 bwo, 20 trico and 20 black ant. The more we switched the more success we had.

All in all between the 5 of us we probably hooked up around 30-35 times.

Time to start heading for colder water, all the tribs of Kettle should be good to go in the upcoming weeks.

(PS. all of the people in the video are friends or family of mine and allowed me to shoot this. Id never do this publically)

Thanks for checking it out!

Thanks for the warning. I wouldn't get to trigger happy on public land. Might be a 1600$ shot. Maybe it's worth it to ya I don't know how much money ya got :)

Why $1600 ? Is there some kind of fine for downing a drone? Wonder what the law says regarding trespass and private property extending into "air space"?

If you are a private property owner, you have air rights on your property up to the point that an aircraft can safely operate. With modern aircraft, this could be up to 500 feet and you'd have to work through how the FAA prescribes the height that aircraft can reasonably safely operate. With the advent of drones, this number may decrease, because you don't need as much safety space to operate a drone as you do a larger aircraft. And prior to the advent of flight (basically anytime before the 20th century), a private landowner owned all the air above their property.

I think the $1600 price tag might be what said drone costs.

I'm so glad you asked! FAA has limitations to who can and cannot fly manned or unmanned aircrafts in controlled airspace.

DJI Phantom 2 has a firmware update that automatically alerts me via the transmitter that I am near controlled airspace.

Even though the FAA has no regulation on drones itself, the firmware still blocks it from flying in controlled airspace in certain big cities as well as airports.

drones are approved to fly in class G airspace which is 1200 feet. (just as long as im not near an airport or in controlled airspace)

So the $1600 you ask? Well that would be the total cost of the drone+gopro :)

I remember when these 'drones' were called radio controlled airplanes and helicopters....and we flew them all over the place with no issues. But we didn't have cameras hanging underneath 'em either, times change.

That's why he have to be super careful where I fly
it. Having a remote copter is one thing then add video to it and it becomes a privacy issue.
