We are looking at this thing saying "WTF" is it a live device or what ??
Crew says lets gaff it and "bring it in the boat" !!!!!!!!!

We call Coast Guard, questions:

is it a hazard to navigation ??
Looking for numbers on device from the boat !!
Now understand this thing is just floating and looks broken !!!

ALL OF THE SUDDEN THE DEVICE COMES ALIVE !! WE just look at each other and say "MF WTF" sudden silence screw this and no more conversation with the Coast Guard !!

Then the device starts moving "SINKS OUT IN FRONT OF US AND THEN STARTS DIVING and DRIVES OFF UNDERWATER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SCARY!
Dept of fish and wildlife/conpesca/eviros searching for bft thieves?
Be careful what you even post on this site as all three plus more are spying on us, read some of the post like where are these boats catching all the yft. Theirs an alternative motive.
Not paranoid, just saying lets keep what we have and not lose anymore.

Just because you are paranoid doesn't mean they aren't really out to get you

It may very well have been a military drone, or used for drug traffic surveillance. There's more stuff out there than we know about. The device likely knew you were there and was spectating. This is similar to the device they used to search for the missing Malaysia flight.

I would think it was creepy or even downright scary only if I saw "made in china" on the side.

saw same thing last year and did some digging. it is a glider from Scripps.
you're right about the hazard though. we saw it and thought it was a drone, then as we approached it started sinking out. I was going to gaff it,but decide better.
