  • San Diego fishing has gained attention across the nation the last couple days after a video uploaded to YouTube shows an angler on Crystal Pier taking aim, and connecting with a hobbyist drone that was filming people on the pier.

    Uploaded by the drone operator, the video comes with the caption, “What a jerk! Gotta admit though, that cast was spot on!”

    The majority of the comments side with the fisherman, including one which received 565 “likes” which said, “Clue up jerk — people don’t want you buzzing around filming them.”

    As of this post, the video has received over 800,000 views on YouTube since being published on the 7th. The video is the top trending item on Facebook, ahead of topics about Donald Trump, actor Steve-O, and Kylie Jenner of Kardashian infamy.

    The video was taken on Thursday, August 6th.

    That was great. Too many of these Drones are causing issues. Some people don’t care to be filmed, why or what gives them the right to fly anywhere they want and film what they want?

    Public space is just that. If you are one the street, you are a viable target for ANY camera. It’s the law. If you destroy someone else’s property, you can be arrested.

    Lucky he didnt bust it or he’d have been on the hook to repair/replace the drone.

    I’ll be shocked if there aren’t more cases of this type of attack on drones to come. Maybe not all with fishing rods, but people are getting tired of these buzzing over head.
