As reported by Hackaday, fishing is generally considered to be a fun and relaxing activity, but it isn’t accessible for those without a certain amount of strength and dexterity. To help more people to be able to enjoy this sport, “Ozz” has been working on what he calls the “FISHBOT.”

This auto-fishing device is controlled by an Arduino Mega, along with an IBT_2 PWM driver to actuate a 400 watt DC motor for reeling duties. An HM-10 Bluetooth module enables smartphone connectivity, opening up the possibility for fingertip activation, or even via the internal gyroscope.

The setup also features a load cell, which could be used to release the line when its in danger of being snapped, or to weigh the fish automatically when landed.
