Unfortunately not, hence you will only be legally be able to use it in areas that is not frequented by people. In Mossel Bay you shouldn't really have a problem with this, the fishing pressure is a bit more intense here in the cape.

All I am going to say is the next person that flies his drone over my head for his youtube video I will be sending a sinker and line in the general direction.
You cant camp these days somewhere without a drone coming past at some stage the weekend. And no I m not talking about people using it for fishing I am talking about the guy's going up and down the shoreline at the dams.
I will even film me doing this as evidence they were too close.

I agree a 100% We use drones purely to get baits out beyond the breakers AND the drone has no camera, so their is no other use for it apart from fishing
