Anyone seen this? Kind of a interesting idea pretty much a electronic slip bobber. With a smart phone app you can raise, lower or jig the bait. It will also notify you when you get a bite.

Of course all of it can be done with a slip bobber and working the pole a little. But thought it was kind of interesting idea.

Reminds me of that rancher several years back that had set up a robotic rifle at one of his feeders that you paid some serious high $$$$$ to his paypal account that activated a screen on your computer that you sat and waited to shoot a record class buck and he mailed you the meat processed and the mount. I am with mrdux, I fish to get away unless a fishing buddy calls me with some hot intel.

A guy I work with his father in law leases some hunting land in Missouri. He had a guy offer him $5000 to trap a deer and tie it up and let him come shoot it. Kinda crazy how much money people will spend to take all the fun out of the hunt.

I saw part of the show last night and part of it was sharing info on the app. And possible adding a fish finder to bobber.

Amen to that. I also tell my wife that I have no cell phone coverage when fishing! :Rofl
