Lights, Camera, Fish On: Eco-Popper Topwater Offers Lure POV HD Video Capture
From the 2016 ICAST Show, Chad LaChance discovers a very forward-thinking invention with the Eco-Popper and its onboard HD camera
Fishful Thinker TV show host Chad LaChance talks with Dani Zeevi from Eco-Net about their latest product, the Eco-Popper topwater lure.
The Eco-Popper is equipped with a HD video camera and creates a WiFi network for a smartphone app to connect with in real-time. Through the private wireless network, video from the popper’s HD video camera is sent to the app for viewing and sharing via social media.
The Eco-Popper also has a series of sensors – still in development – to relay helpful information to the angler, such as water temperature and cadence.
Editor’s Note: If tossing the Eco-Popper to gather some cool fish strikes and catches on video, it’s highly suggested you use some strong braided line; this little item isn’t your average-price topwater bait.
