Vibration Bait

Better than a fishing lure, this fish attractor emits sounds and vibrations to spur the fish’s curiosity. Toss TactiBite in the water near where you cast. It uses a tactile transducer (sort of like a speaker) to replicate the sounds and movements of feeding fish. Nearby fish detect the vibrations through tiny hairs lining their body. Normally those hairs help them locate prey and stay in their schools. In this case, the fish are spurred to move toward your bait. Maker Jack Danos already had a knack for fishing, but he taught himself 3D modeling to channel his passion into a useful prototype when he was just 15 years old. This would eventually land him an appearance on Shark Tank and a following of loyal customers. TactiBite comes with three sounds and adjustable volume, so you can properly attract the fish in different settings. Jack recommends using the “Scared Shrimp” for salt water and “Rattle Battle” as your go-to fresh water sound. Whichever sound you choose, this innovative fishing technique will have the fish moving—and biting—in the right direction.

    One of our main questions is does it work in both fresh and salt water - yes it does!

    And here are some more videos of Tactibite in action!

    Does this attach to your fishing pole like a bobber would?

    @Shaunna Hi Shaunna,

    No - it floats independently and attracts fish to the area where it's floating. It has it's own anchor to keep it in place.

    You cast around it and catch the fish that it attracts.

    Thanks,

    Jack

    @Jack At the 0:46 mark of the video, it certainly looks like it's attached as a bobber to your dad's line as he reels in the fish. I'm still confused as to how this works in deep water. (Maybe it doesn't?)

    Either way, it seems pretty neat!

    It uses 3 AAA batteries - they will last ~ 20 hours at 80% volume level (You can adjust the volume level)

    Hi Everyone, I Just wanted to add a bit of info about our product to make things a bit more clear:

    - It's the world's first floating, throwable electronic fish attracting device. You may have seen it recently on ABC's Shark Tank, where we made a deal with one of the Sharks!

    - It's about the size of a mini-football and weighs ~ 2 lbs.

    - It uses 3 AAA batteries to make sounds and vibrations that attract fish to the area where it's floating. You just turn it on, toss it in, wait a few minutes and catch more fish!

    - The TactiBite Fish Call comes with 3 different sound tracks that can be easily selected using its buttons. It also has volume controls so that you can adjust the volume based on water conditions.

    - It works in both fresh and salt water and attracts many species of predator fish including Bass, Trout, Salmon, Redfish, Crappie, Yellow Tail, etc.

    I'll be happy to answer any questions you have.

    Thanks,

    Jack

    Thanks Jane - when most people consider what the spend on fishing between boats, gear, bait, etc., our product is one of the best investments they make. It's built to give you many years of service!
