If you are a guy then you should like fishing. If you don’t like fishing because you think it is too boring and that is the only complaint you have, ReelSonar is making fishing fun for everybody. If you are an avid fisherman, then you probably know that sonar gear isn’t the cheapest thing to come across. You get one added onto a fishing boat, it quickly adds up the total cost and can quickly become obsolete after a few years. It would be nice to have a fishing sonar integrated with smart phones allowing for regular updates via the different app stores (and the convenience of having it integrated into a device you carry everywhere is nice too).
ReelSonar is the fishfinder that integrates with a smartphone’s bluetooth capability and pairs with a sonar device that you toss out into the water. You can see the location of fish up to 150 feet and integrate the app with GPS allowing for tags. That means if you find a really nice fishing hole, you can simply mark the fishing hole on the map allowing you to visit great fishing spots on the regular. The app will also check:
If you are doing some night fishing and manage to lose track of the ReelSonar, you can activate the light on the ReelSonar which makes it easier to find. If you are an absolute terrible fisherman, the ReelSonar tries to make up for that and actually give you lure and bait suggestions based off of location, water salinity, and water temperature. The ReelSonar is a crowdfunding project currently on Indiegogo and in the prototype stage. The makers are doing a good job of reaching out to true anglers and getting their feedback which should help insure that the product makes the most sense for fishermen. The coolness factor of being able to see the location of fish and using the sonar to mark the topography of the river/pond/lake floor should also appeal to kayak enthusiasts.
