Ateam of University of Wisconsin-Stout students was hoping for colder weather and thicker ice on area lakes so they could try out their Engineering Technology 100 class creation, a fully automated ice fishing rod.
The students demonstrated their invention at the STEMM Student Expo on Dec. 9.
The rod and reel uses a battery-driven motor to jig, which helps attract fish. Once a fish strikes, the rod automatically hooks the fish and reels it in. Users do have to bait their hooks and remove their catch.
