Advantages of SwellPro Drones
for Surf Fishing

Cast Further

SwellPro fishing drones can fly baits out for up to 5 km or 3 miles away from the shore, allowing fishermen to target species in deeper waters without haveing to use a kayak or a boat.

Catch More Fish

SwellPro fishing drones have the capacity to carry one line set with up to 10 baited hooks - multiply your surf fishing productivity.

Catch Bigger Fish

Fishermen can cast big live baits at a longer distance with the drone to catch big-game fish like shark or tuna from the shore rather than from a boat.

Easy Fish Finding

Fitted with high resolution camera, SwellPro fishing drones can quickly scout for fish from the above. Fishermen can also read the tide, waves and water colors from the drone’s footage for finding fishing spots.

Auto-bait Dropping

With built-in GPS, fishermen can save fishing spots on the map of the drone’s APP. Next time, they make the drone automatically fly to the marked spots and drop baits - more time on fishing less time on flying.

100% Cast Accuracy

Watching the camera’s live footage, fisherman can control the drone to drop the line near the fish at the right time - get more and larger fish to bite faster with less baits.

Large Bait Capacity

Large batteries, high-thrust motors and highly efficient propellers powers the drone to safely lift baits of up to 3.5 kg / 7.7 lbs. Unnecessary weight are removed from the drone for longer flight time.


SwellPro makes the world’s only waterproof fishing drone that can float on the water. Both the motors and internal electronics are coated for corrosion-resistance.

High Wind-resistance

With strong propulsion and aerodynamic airframe, SwellPro fishing drone can hover and fly without any issues in strong winds of up to 44 mph / 20 m/s.

Freshwater Fish Finding & Pre-bating

Freshwater fishermen can connect a sonar fish finder to the SplashDrone 4 and fly the drone over the lake to quickly detect fish. They can instantly see fish visuals and water depth on the drone's APP. To further improve catch rate, the fishing drone can integrate a pre-bait release for attracting fish to one particular location with food.

Offshore Fish Finding & Bait Dropping

Offshore fishermen have been using SwellPro fishing drone to scan for paddies, boils, birds or just spot fish near the surface ahead of their boat. This saves hours of countless sailing in wrong direction and reduce fuel use. Instead of driving boats there to scare off the fish school, they quickly fly the baited line out with the drone away from the boat and release it into the fish clusters.
