Whether you just started fishing or you’ve been fishing your whole life, there’s never a bad time to take a look at some of the cool fishing gear out there. Although nothing beats a simple day out on the lake fishing, there’s seemingly always a way to enhance your experience with some cool fishing tech, a new tackle box, or swag that you can wear everywhere to show your love of fishing. Like smartphones, it seems like every year so many cool fishing gadgets come out that we can’t really keep track of them all. In this blog, we’re going to take a look at some awesome fishing gadgets and accessories that you may not have come across otherwise.
The Baitcloud is a fish attractant great for getting fish into a feeding mood. Each biodegradable ball lasts around 30 minutes and disperses scents and bubbles to attract fish to the area and get them hungry.
The Anglr Tracker is a device that attaches to your fishing rod and collects data as you fish. The data it collects includes things like the temperature, wind speed, your cast-to-catch ratio, and many other things. Essentially, it allows you to create a log of your fishing day without having to write anything down or keep track of it yourself.
The Deeper FishFinder is a castable sonar device that works well in a variety of fishing environments. What's cool about the gadget is you get to have the same capability of your onboard fish finder without the hassle of a big screen or the need for a boat. You can also cast out into hard to get to waters to gain visibility in those areas as well. It can connect to your mobile device via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and uses advanced high-frequency technology in order to transfer accurate data every time. What's great is that you can use the Deeper to see where fish might be, and then use a castable wireless fishing camera to capture the video and gain insight into what fish exactly are in the area.
Electronic Fish Scales
Are you a competitive angler who wants to know the weight of your fish right when you catch it? There are plenty of scales on the market that will break the bank, so why not opt for a simple handheld electronic fish scale that won’t? These offer a simple way to weigh in quickly and allow you to exaggerate your fishing stories immediately upon reaching shore.
Joe: “Hey Bob, I just caught an 80-pound fish today!”
Bob: “Are you sure that wasn’t ounces?”
The GoFish Cam
GPS devices have been used since the early 2000s by anglers around the world. Although they’ve been helpful for locating areas that have fish, mapping your routes, and analyzing structure, they don’t really do much other than that. The GoFish Cam is a wireless underwater fishing camera that securely attaches directly to your fishing line and captures all the action up close and personal while also affording you a more tactical view of the area you’re fishing in. It's great to combine with a radar/fish finder because it can give you HD video rather than some markings on a screen so you can really define what you're looking at on your radars.
The fishing camera records full HD video 1080p at 60fps, 30fps, and 720p at 60fps, and can be used for casting, trolling, bottom fishing, kayak, and float fishing. The best part of all is that the footage you capture with your underwater fishing camera can be sent to your phone using our fishing app. From there, you can upload it to social media and prove to Bob that you truly did catch that 80-pound fish!
