16 year old Jack Danos and his father Jeff pitch their take on a fishing “lure” in episode 2, season 8 of Shark Tank. Jack learned about a transducer technology that could turn any abject into a sound and vibration generator and realized it could be applied to fishing. Jack did all the research, engineering, design and production work with the help of his dad. They successfully raised over $112,000 on Kickstarter from 800 backers.
Fishing is all about patience and luck. Maybe the fish are there, maybe they’re not. Aside from putting on your scuba gear there’s really no way to know. It’s not uncommon to wait an hour or more between bites, and sometimes you may leave empty handed. Instead of trying to guess where the fish are, why not bring the fish to you?
What is Fish Call?
The Fish Call by Tactibite is your new secret weapon that will maximize your chances of getting your bait in front of some fish and reeling them in. It’s a floating device designed to attract fish using sound and vibration. You just turn it on, toss it in the water and cast around it. The Fish Call is about the size of a mini football and weighs under 2 pounds. It comes with a small anchor and anchor line to hold it in place, or you can let the Fish Call float untethered. One Fish Call is enough to attract nearby fish, or throw a few of them in to create a feeding frenzy.
How it Works
The Fish Call emits vibrations that mimic the natural sounds of a school of small fish. Predator fish instinctively take notice and will come to investigate. It has a volume adjustment and 3 built-in sounds to choose from – Scared Shrimp, Rattle Battle, and Coastal Craze. Fish Call works for freshwater or saltwater fish including trout, bass, drum, flounder, catfish, striper, and many more. It’s powered by 3 AAA batteries and will last for 15 hours of continuous use.
Fish Call comes with a 30 day satisfaction guarantee. If you don’t think it works, you can return it for a full refund.
