|The introduction of electronic fishing lures for big game changed the fishing community forever. Designed primarily for the tournament fishing community(IGFA allowed), these units have been the primary focus of many documentary films due to it's high success rate. Designed in conjunction with leading marine biologists, and S2 Instruments, the big game electronic fishing lure was born. These unique devices use specific pressure (vibrations) to emulate struggling bait fish that Sharks, Tuna, and Marlin feed on. Each takes in to account the "NORMAL" feeding habits in the way of size, weight, species, and degree of struggle. The concept was studied on how species survive in their natural environment, this is the key to the success of these fishing products. |
Ampullae of Lorenzini (Sharks)
Named after the 17th-century anatomist who first described them, these skin pores stipple the head and body of sharks. They connect to long, jelly-filled tubes ending in blind sacs called ampullae, which contain sensory cells and nerves connecting to the brain. The cells enable sharks to home in on hidden prey, which, like all animals, give off weak electric fields. Sharks can also detect the presence of ocean currents and make long migrations by sensing the seabed's local geomagnetic signature. The smooth dogfish, for one, can detect a change in direction of intensity of five billionths of a volt per centimeter.
Lateral line (Tuna and Marlin)
Stretching from head to tail down the flank, the lateral-line system consists of fluid-filled sensory canals with tiny, hair-like receptors. These are similar to the ampullae of Lorenzini but are sensitive to vibrations. Acting like a body-length ear, the system helps fish sense objects in the ocean. To them, the lateral line, which has been dubbed "distant touch," is like having a long arm with which to touch a rock or another fish.
Technology has captured the fishing industry by developing a computer controlled attracting device that actually attracts different types of ocean game fish such as Mako sharks, Tuna, and Marlin. It's a proven fact that specific sounds attract game fish, the people at S2 Instruments have found a way to duplicate that sound. By incorporating the technology of today's computer technology, and incorporating the knowledge of some of the leading marine laboratories and biologists, then applying that technology to an age old problem, the fish and the fisherman.
These devices are simple to use, and they work on the principle that has proven to attract Mako Sharks, Tuna and Billfish, just hook it up to your 12 volt boat battery place the transducer in the water and the device is automatically activated, that's it. It is now emitting a rich tone, while acoustically vibrating the water in a 360 degree pattern. You are now being heard a minimum of a 1 mile under water. The rocking motion of the ocean further activates additional circuitry and breaks up the tone by adding an intermittent harmonic. This easy to use electronic lure should be caged, or it will be eaten. The sound is heard by game fish as an invitation to a slow moving wounded meal. Than means a greater selection of game fish caught.
Supply the standard 12 volts from your boat's electrical system and place transducer over board, or can be mounted within the bottom of the boat, it's that simple
