Our Fishing Reel assembly includes a solar powered sensor. It consists of a typical fishing reel and one sensor. This sensor comes with 30 hooks that also have sensors on them. The addition lets the fisherman know if their bait is still on their hook when their line is in the water. It senses the weight of the worm, or bait of choice, and will show you a picture of a hook on the screen. When there is no bait on the hook, i.e. the bait falls off in the water or is taken by a fish, the hook on the sensor's screen will appear as just an outline of the hook. When it does sense weight on the hook, i.e. the bait is still on the hook, it will appear as a solid black hook. This attachment benefits fishermen so they know if their bait is still on their hook and don't waste time believing that it is still there.
