ReelSonar Helps You Catch Fish with Your Smartphone

by Shane McGlaun

If you’re the outdoorsy type who likes to fish, a new project is up on Indiegogo that will help you improve your catch. The project is called ReelSonar and it’s a high-tech fishing bobber. It looks pretty much like a normal fishing bobber except it has sonar technology inside, and can communicate with your smartphone.


That sonar technology is able to shoot ultrasonic sound waves into the water up to 150 feet deep to find where the fish are hiding. The fancy bobber connects to your Android or iOS smartphone using Bluetooth 4.0 to show you where the fish are. The bobber will even sense the water temperature and salinity and suggest the best bait to use.


When the fish finally come to bite your bait, the bobber will light up and the app will signal that fish are nearby. The app will even give you the relative size of the fish and estimate how many fish are nearby. Once you find a honey hole, you can tag the location of the spot using GPS.

The first 300 orders can get a ReelSonar unit and the app for just $79(USD). After that, the price goes up to $99. If the project reaches its $70,000 funding goal by January 21, the product will be released this Summer.
