I personally haven't used one. Thought there were a gimmick. Saw that KVD endorsed them, kinda chuckled. Now, almost everyone on tour has one... Coincidence?

My dad had a fish call like 50 years ago. Supposed to attract the fish by making the sound of some sort of bug in a jar.

Remember the Color C-Lector? Everyone had one in those days too.

In the case of this device, it wouldn't take much contingency money along with a discount to get all the pros on board.

HAHAHA!! I had to browse the internet to see what this was....reminds me of the "Electronic Pest Repellers" that allegedly change the something-or-other in your home electrical circuit, repelling everything. Safe for pets...

Wonder if these come with an additional chip or SD card that can be used to send females into a wild, passionate frenzy...can be used in any bar or at home. crazy

I suppose if your a pro and money is on the line, you can't take the chance that it just might work for the others. I won't be getting one, never had a Color-C-Lector either! I do see they still make those.

If the thing really did work great and they just came swirling around the boat like crazy, I think it would violate my fair chase rules. Wouldn't really be that fun fishing any more if it were that easy.

Here's a link to fish tank demo,

I've also seen a video of a guys depth finder showing fish dug into the bottom of the lake, he turns on the Hydrowave and you can see the lines that were on the bottom tilt up towards the surface, its pretty wierd. The guy said it works awesome when fishing for smallies, they seem to be a lot more qurious then LG mouth.

I guess its suppose to replicate fish feeding on bait fish

I fished with a guy last year who is skeptical of EVERYTHING, and he said he will never fish a tournament without one. He's a great stick but he definitely isn't getting paid to pimp Hydrowave.

My son fished a few times last open water season with a guy that had one and swore they worked impressively. Didn't think much of it until he bought one. He's a young guy with a limited budget so to fork out the money for one I figured there had to be something to it.

I borrowed it to use in my fish house to give a try. I have a camera hooked up to a flat screen so it was interesting to monitor the results. It didn't take long for myself and everyone that angled in my house to be convinced it absolutely works. His buddy who has a spear house is getting one for next year, he also doesn't have any money to burn.

I tend to fish a little fast in the open water season (fish would probably be trying to catch up all day) but will be getting one for the wheel house next year. My son says they work even better in open water but haven't tried one to back that claim.

    • I’m in a similar situation right now and I am “freaking out” how did it work out for you what paper work did you file? Who did you reach out to?
    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.
