Do you think the old anglers called the new guys cheaters when using a marker float first came onto the scene?

I donít have one but donít have anything against the deeper things. Although it irritates me people using them to find fish. For mapping out a lake to me thereís not really a difference. They both do the same thing but one way is just easier and more detailed and accurate.

Some of us fish solely just for the end result of fishing (having a large carp on the bank) and some of us fish for the pursuit and challenge of gaining that result gives us.

Iím still on the fence with it all but Iíd love one of them bait boats that can completely map out a lake for me then print it off, put it away and use my marker and spod rod after that.

I suppose anyone who has turned their noses up at deepers should also burn any copies of lake maps theyíve seen and never listen to other anglers when being told about features and depths etc.

Drones are brilliant pieces of kit, I use a half decent one in work occasionally to check on the factory roof and its brilliant. I would love to take it down to my lake and have a look at it from the perspective. However I would never be taking it fishing with me and regularly using one.

As for deepers I don't really understand why there is a dislike for them. I think they can be really beneficial from what I have seen. Again like a lot have said I wouldn't use for fish finding but more for feature finding and mapping a lake out.

I agree with blankasorus I donít see nothing wrong with using a deeper at all, you can thrash the water with your marker float trying to find some features when in 3 casts Iíve found mine without any disturbance, I donít even have the fish finder section on tho I only use it for depth and feature finding, as for the drones they are banned when I fish so it donít bother me but I donít think they are a good idea especially the ones Iíve seen the noise they make I wouldnít want to sit there all day listening to that

Fortunately they are banned on my waters as are remote controlled boats.

My worry with them is the noise. Itís loud enough where I fish at times from all the Heathrow planes, without the buzzing of them as well. Imagine on a weekend having half a dozen of them up at a time. Lads shouting at each other ďyouíre flying in my airĒ. That air belongs to that swim. Wait for the first report of a mid air collision.

I personally see nothing wrong with a deeper as a feature finding/mapping tool.

A couple of years ago a lad was baiting up on one of my waters with a paintball gun. He was only doing it for a laugh but I thought oh god someoneís loosing an eye in a minute!

I did have similar thoughts until I'd lost fish being cut off, using a Deeper cleared it up for me and other anglers who I've informed of certain underwater features where they had lost fish - essentially big graveled spikes.

I hadn't used a marker float in years, neither have I ever used a real boat or RC controlled boat. I can see the inclination to use a drone, I wouldn't use one myself, and neither would I use a RC boat. I can see why in some situations an RC boat can become a useful tool, though I've joked with others I've spoken to, it won't be long until RC drone submarines will be all the rage.

The older I get the less I care about what anyone else does in their fishing
If they want to use a drone so what as long as it doesnít involve them casting into the water I am fishing of lands on me then knock yourselves out.
Fish to your own terms

They frighten me to death. We are starting to see them on YT, used obsessively for overhead filming but inevitably followed up with baits put right on the fish, and I expect them to start turning up over the desperate Millennials. The Deeper craze is well under way and you can't unhear information gleaned dishonestly. These Deeper dudes make every excuse to cover their shame. The only saving grace is that if they have to go to such lengths, they arent long in this game.
If you get a drone for Chrismas, please dont make it part of your fishing kit.
