SAN DIEGO — A man fishing on Crystal Pier in Pacific Beach had a rare catch –a drone flying overhead.

Video from a camera mounted to the drone zoomed in on several people standing on the pier on Thursday.  A fisherman in particular appeared annoyed by the drone and can be seen casting his line toward the drone.

The drone attempted to move out of the way, but was hooked.  The pilot, Tice Ledbetter, was able to land the drone without damaging it.  He unraveled the line and posted the video to YouTube.
