4 Fishing Gifts for the Tech-Savvy Angler

Do you have an angler in your family that is technology-savvy and ready for some new gadgets? 

Fishing equipment has kept up with the technology wave of the 21st Century. If your angler is still living in the 20th Century, then maybe it’s time to get some high-tech gadgets to make his or her life a bit easier.

Here are four things to get the technology wizard in your family for their next fishing trip.

1. Garmin Echo 301 dv Fishfinder

The new depth finder from Garmin is small, affordable and very powerful. The Echo 301 has super clear sonar picture as deep as 1,500 feet, includes water temperature, and flips back and forth smoothly from depth range scales. You definitely get lots of bang for your buck.

Get one from Bass Pro for $214.99.


2. Aqua-Vu AV Micro 5c Underwater Camera

The Aqua-Vu camera is about the size of your iPhone but is one mighty piece of technology. It can run up to eight hours on a single charge and takes super clear photography underwater. So when something looks fishy on your fish finder you can send the Aqua-Vu down for a clear look. It comes with 50 feet of camera cable and a five-inch LCD monitor.

Get one from Bass Pro for $399.99.
