Leeda has added Lowrance to its catalogue in response to the growth in popularity of tech-based angling products with the new Fishhunter castable sonar products.
The Fishhunter range, which comprises the Pro and 3D models, plus a dedicated accessories set, offers portable, castable sonar functionality that will link directly to the user’s smartphone or tablet, giving them access to key sub-surface information about their chosen venue.
Transmitting information via Wi-Fi without the need for a cellular or internet connection, the Fishhunter creates bathymetric and structure maps that are relayed to dedicated software that offers information about fish location and size, depth, temperature, and contours, helping to create bespoke mappings of the user’s favourite venues. Scan depth is up to 160ft
Both units weigh well under 200g and feature USB charging, a tough casing that features an anchor point for line attachment, plus a night light for identification and location in low light or at night that also illuminates when fish are nearby.
The free Fishhunter app is available to download for iOS and Android devices.
Mike Robinson, Leeda Brand Director commented on the new partnership between Leeda and Lowrance owners Navico; “The use of technology in angling is increasing hugely and we’re very pleased to partner with a brand such as Lowrance that has huge brand awareness around the globe. For fishing disciplines in the UK, it’s clear to see the benefits that Fishhunter products offer anglers who want to know more about where they’re fishing.”
The Fishhunter Pro and 3D models are available now through www.leedab2b.co.uk and carry SRPs of £160 and £210 respectively.
Full demonstrations of both devices will be at iceTackle* 2019.
