The Automatic fisherman base unit was designed for fisherman that want to use there own rods, it will catch every species of fish with more consistency than any other system on the market! It is more durable and easier to use then any other unit on the market its 100 % made in the USA and has a 20 year replacement warranty and a lifetime warranty on the trigger. The trigger system is adjustable so you can catch light biting fish or aggressive fish by adjusting the angle of the pin. We also have a timing bobber to allow the fish to take out a little line before the rod sets the hook making the hookup percentages outstanding. WE ALSO ADDED THE ICE STOPPER PRODUCT IN THIS SYSTEM it eliminates the line from freezing in the ice to -50 degrees it is simply amazing it works that well. the hole will freeze with ice but the line goes thru the reservoir where the solution is inside stopping the line from freezing allowing you to use the bobbering system in the automatic fisherman. The red base is very durable and easy to use open the stabilizer arm up and drop it on the ice and set up the fishing pole its that simple.
