Video Purports to Show Fisherman Hooking Drone at Pacific Beach

"Catch of the day?"

A YouTube video taken at Crystal Pier in Pacific Beach apparently shows a fisherman hooking a drone.

The video has received more than 700,000 views on YouTube since being posted by Tice Ledbetter on Friday and was a trending item on Facebook on Monday.

The video is taken from the vantage point of the unmanned aircraft. It zooms in on several people standing on the pier.

A fisherman is shown casting his line toward the drone and then it appears he’s able to hook his line to the drone before it escapes.

Watch the video and let us know what you think: Did the fisherman really hook the drone?

We’ve reached out to Ledbetter about the video and will update this story once we hear back.
