FishHunter is introducing to the Australian, New Zealand and United Kingdom market, a portable, smartphone-based fish finder that helps in pinpointing the exact location of fish. The baseball sized fish finder makes use of military grade sonar to provide three distinct views to help users find fish in any situation.
“Fishermen and fishing enthusiasts often spend hours trying to find fish and fish habitats and the FishHunter fish finder allow them to take a fish finder everywhere they want to catch fish so they can be more effective in finding the best possible fishing spots,” says the CEO, Michael Smith. “We spent 2 years developing the FishHunter to show you what your casting or potential fishing area looks like before you start fishing. It is completely portable, does not involve any installation so it can be taken to placed where you would not normally be able to use a fish finder.”
FishHunter is a downward facing fish finding sonar. It comes wrapped inside a sealed waterproof silicone-polymer case the size of a baseball. FishHunter works by using a high frequency transducer to tell users where to cast their line for the best chance of catching fish. FishHunter works in all marine weather conditions including ice fishing and works with more than 7,000 IOS and android smartphones and tablets.
FishHunter is precise due to its high frequency transducer operating at 380 khz and the device has the power to reach and analyze to a depth of 40 meters (130ft) in both fresh and salt water.
FishHunter offers users the most advanced GPS tracking and mapping available on your smartphone. Fisherman can mark their favorite and most successful fishing spots by placing “pins” on the FishHunter map. In addition, they can also add photos, notes or other pieces of critical data to each “pin” or in their catches logbook for more review later.
Fisherman and fishing enthusiasts don’t need a cell tower connection to use the FishHunter but rather simply pair their FishHunter with a smartphone or tablet using blue tooth and then cast it in the water. They can then check their smartphone/tablet to see the bottom contour, water depth and fish locations.
