Remote Control Chum-Dumping Boat Is Probably Not A Toy

By Andrew Liszewski

While it probably won’t appeal to kids, this radio controlled feed boat looks like just the thing to make an early morning fishing expedition actually seem fun! The boat is designed to get into places that might be difficult for larger watercraft, and at the push of a button the tipper can be used to dump up to 4 1/2 pounds of chum or feed into the water to attract the fish. It can also be used to deliver a baited hook with floater up to 950 feet away which is pretty much impossible with even the best casting techniques.

And if that’s not enough, the boat includes a sonar sensor allowing it to double as fish finder, wirelessly transmitting the information back to the remote control which includes a backlit LCD display. Unfortunately though, unless you’re fishing in a tournament for a hefty cash prize, the boat’s $726 price tag puts it out of reach for most Bob Izumi wannabes.

    chumming is illegal in most tournaments.

    Forget the chum. I want it to drop weighted waterproof M-80s off the side as depth charges and the fish just float to the surface.

    Technology will make our lives easier and easier, but sometimes, the reality overexagerates. I mean, I prefer fishing classic style. this boat could be useful for companies that are in the fish market.
