B$Z: FishHunter introduces a world's first - FishHunter Directional 3D

July 14, 2015

FishHunter introduces a world's first — FishHunter Directional 3D — “THE MOST POWERFUL, PORTABLE FISH FINDER EVER. PERIOD.”

FishHunter Inc. introduces its latest portable fish finder that fits in your pocket, FishHunter Directional 3D at ICAST 2015, the world’s largest sport fishing trade show. FishHunter Directional 3D, a 5 transducer, dual frequency, Wi-Fi based fish finder that hunts fish up to 160 feet and leverages 3D rendering software to create the most powerful portable fish finder ever.

Making its debut at ICAST 2015, the world’s largest sport fishing trade show, FishHunter Directional 3D is a completely portable fish finder that packs the power of 5 transducers working at a dual frequency into a sonar that fits in your pocket. FishHunter Directional 3D features its exclusive patent pending technology to allow you to see picture quality renderings of bottom contour up to 160 feet below the surface and up to 200ft away. 


“Fishermen and fishing enthusiasts often spend hours trying to find fish and fish habitats and we have spent 2 years developing the NEW FishHunter Directional 3D to show you what your casting or potential fishing area looks like before you start fishing. Ultimately, our goal with FishHunter Directional 3D was to create a breakthrough in the way that fisherman can view the information below the water surface and we were very excited about our ability to combine 3D rendering software and traditional transducer data to create views and features that no one has ever seen before,” says the CEO, Michael Smith. “Of course making sure that that it still fits in your pocket so you can take it anywhere you want to fish was still critical to our design plan.”


FishHunter Directional 3D fish finder provides Anglers with the ultimate versatility, featuring 6 Sonar View Options including the NEW and patent pending Directional Casting, 3D Bottom Contouring and 3D Bottom Mapping:


·        Directional Casting*

When you cast out your FishHunter Directional 3D sonar, this breakthrough feature powers up 5 transducers to provide a 360-degree view of the water beneath your sonar and tell you where the fish are located in relation to the floating sonar. By viewing the left hand side of the screen, you can see the depth and location of any fish present beneath your sonar and know where the best location is to cast your line to catch those fish. Select a specific transducer from the left hand display and see the bottom contour represented by that transducer instantly on the right hand side of the screen.


·        3D Bottom Contouring*

We combine the output of 3 dual frequency transducers to give you the most realistic bottom view available today.  Leveraging 3D graphics software and the information from the 3 transducers, FishHunter is able to draw and incredibly realistic view of what the bottom structure looks like.  You can even change your angle of view with a swipe of the screen so that you can look down or across the bottom.


·        3D Bottom Mapping*

Cast FishHunter into the water, enter its distance from you, then reel it back in and you have just created a 3 dimensional map of the bottom contour at your favorite fishing spot. Toggle on/off the grid overlay and know exactly where the drop offs are, their depth and proximity from your location.  Then GPS tag this 3D Bottom Map and save it so you can review it anytime you want.

FishHunter Directional 3D is amazing precise due to its 5 powerful, dual frequency transducers, operating at 381kHz and 475kHz.  The device has the power to reach and analyze to a depth of 160 feet and a 200 foot range, in both fresh and salt water.  FishHunter works in all marine weather conditions including ice fishing and works with more than 7,000 IOS and android smartphones and tablets.

Fisherman and fishing enthusiasts don’t need a cell tower connection to use the FishHunter but rather simply pair their FishHunter with a smartphone or tablet using Wi-Fi (which is 4 times faster than blue tooth) and then cast it in the water. They can then check their smartphone/tablet to see the bottom contour, water depth, temperature, and fish locations.
