Fishing and my dad go together like peanut butter and jelly. I grew up really close to a HUGE lake, I mean they only make lakes this size in Texas, unless it’s one of the great lakes. Ok, you know what I mean, things in Texas are BIG. I grew up in north Texas right along the Oklahoma boarder and the lake is Lake Texhoma. We went fishing and swimming and boating and as a result I love being on the water. I would even say if it wasn’t for baiting a hook, and actually having to touch a fish, I enjoy fishing. It’s relaxing to cast your rod into the water and reel it back in.
I was approached on behalf of Nextsport Inc, the creators of FishEyes Rod & Reel with Underwater Camera for a product review. Thinking of Father’s Day and my own dad who loves to go fishing, I though, I had to check this out.
FishEyes Rod & Reel with Underwater Video Camera allows you to see what’s happening underwater in real time! No more guess work or long waiting periods with no action. Now spend your time bringing in more fish than ever! Great for dock, lake or even ocean fishing! Catch more fish or just explore underwater! Includes: one FishEyes Rod & Reel, two bait baskets, two sinkers and 10 line attachment clip sets.
Now when I think of my dad, I think of old fashioned (my dad is by no means old, I have young parents) and I wonder if he would like having a video camera attached to his fishing pole. I think it’s awesome and if we lived closer to him, it would be quite the adventure for Miles to go fishing with his papa. Miles loves picking up worms and other bugs already and since he’s so young, being able to see the fish on the LCD screen would help him to understand what they are doing. The FishEyes Rod & Reel with Underwater Video Camera does not include the 4 batteries that it needs, and it also doesn’t include hooks and lures, which isn’t a problem for a seasoned fisherman like my dad.
The video camera with built in LED for all underwater conditions is a really cool feature. I remember riding on a boat that had sonar capabilities and it showed schools of fish under or around the boat as we went by them. This is even cooler. The screen is in full-color, it’s a camera and not sonar. The screen comes with a sun shade making it easier to look into, and you can actually catch fish, instead of just watching them. The footage you see on the FishEyes Rod & Reel Undwater Video Camera is live footage, you actually see what is in the water. FishEyes Rod & Reel Undwater Video Camera is geared towards ages 8 & up and requires some adult assembly. Thinking of me and taking my kids out myself. I love the idea of the video camera and just watching the fish swim by. I’m not going to bate the hook, just cast it in and watch the fish.
