Electronic fish bait FishMagnet – 2 reviews
Every avid fisherman is a tireless, reliable process monitoring available at pocket innovations for fishing. This time, surf the Internet, I stumbled upon not really a new product – e-bait “FishMagnet -2“. It is called in some commercials — “E-bait the Super Bite“
On how proved to this thing, and what conclusions did the team “On the hook” in this issue.
Before just think about buying, I decided to read the comments of colleagues on the Internet and watch video reviews.
In YouTube came across a small series of promotional videos, where the number of negative opinions is clearly dominated by the number of likes. The rest of the article – it is an open advertisement with the same structures of the texts that talk about the benefits of two devices called “FishMagnet” and his next generation “FishMagnet-2”.
Curiosity and the low price, already practically defeated common sense, and I was going to buy this gadget. Maybe it’ll work. Later it turned out that my friend has such a device, and he kindly offered me to test it in action, without revealing his personal opinion. Pure experiment.
The test was scheduled for the next Saturday. Early in the morning my brother and I went to the lake hoping to catch carp.
Both had the same seven fishing rods with carrying rings and coils for long-distance casting. Identical floats for fishing carp and the same size hooks. As bait prepared two versions of the mash for carp. We sat on a nearby platform and saw one going on.
The key difference between us was only in the way of feeding/luring fish:
- Brother used a hand-made bait with pieces of worm, breadcrumbs, yoghurt and ground.
- I have only used e-bait.
Let’s for those who do not know, briefly describe the device itself. Looking like a cracker with two contacts leaded outside. When lowered into the water closed over the two outer contact and the lure starts working. The “FishMagnet-2”, the decoy operates on 4 of the five senses of fish:
- the electrical impulses;
- light exposure;
- sound pulses;
- the mechanical vibration.
All this should attract the fish at a distance up to 900 meters around and lead her to the bait. But I suggest you to view the video with the real experiment on the water.
Short course fun is over. Now let’s get back to the experiment.
My first impression from the use of bait – it is broken and not working. Checked the house, closing the contact with the nail clippers – it hummed and glowed. Lowered into the water while fishing barely buzzing.
The sunrise has just begun, we threw the fishing rods and sat down to wait. From time to time pocivalo then me, then my brother. To 6 a.m. of the difference in bite is not particularly felt.
But after 6 I started to bite less and less, while my brother remained initially assumed temp. At 9 a.m., when it began to bake, after five hours ‘ fishing we decided to stop fishing and go home.
I understand that the difference is clearly not in my favor. But when I saw Sadok brother next to mine, I realized that lost the competition by almost two times. And not only the quantity but also the quality (size) of the fish. I had a 1.7 kg, and the brother of 3.2 kg.
The conclusions that I did
If your bait and acts on the 4 senses of fish, it does not mean that it will help to catch more. The effect of regular homemade bait for carp turned out to be much more efficient, although applied only on the charisma of the subjects of carp and when casting balls created visual attractive effect in the form of a dust cloud.
Personally, my subjective opinion isthat I would have achieved exactly the same result on a fishing trip when device is off. Thank God, he’s not scared away the fish around it with its beeping, blinking, jitter, and electrical discharges.
In any LocalIntranet bait – this bait for fishermen rather than fish. Even the manufacturer indicates that its effective use is determined empirically. If human, then sort it out yourself how to use it, given the salinity, the temperature, the color of the scales of a fish and 2 dozen different factors. More I this thing will not be using, that’s all my opinion.
If you have experience in using this lure and want to share it, please write in comments. If you have questions – ask, I will try to answer.
