DTG2 from Deep Trekker

 

” The DTG2 from Deep Trekker comes complete with a standard 50 meters of tether that connects you to the Superbright LCD Screen Controller and offers the first completely portable, remotely operated vehicle (ROV). Built to last, the DTG2 is constructed of a cast-aluminum body that encases a 360-degree window and allows the user to have an unprecedented field of view, whether checking out the bottom of the boat or exploring the ocean floor. Typical battery life ranges from six to eight hours. “

 

 

Watch this video of the DTG2 and see just how cool it is …

 

 

 

 

 

    As cool as an underwater ROV might be we personally can see ourselves having much more fun from a gift of the V2 , state of the art , waterproof , floating drone from SeaHex which is a steal at $8,000 … (sarc off)

SeaHex V2

 

” The SeaHex V2 changes the stakes for the ever-growing market of quadcopter drones. The big brother of the V1, which allows for safe water recovery, the V2 provides the impressive ability for both water landings and takeoffs. When coupled with the offshore fishing package, the SeaHex V2 lets you create a program to search a half-mile grid in front of you while sending a live feed back to an iPad or a smartphone onboard. That’s a huge advantage when looking for baitballs or a feeding frenzy.”

 

 

And here is a video of the SeaHex V2 in action …

” Jennifer landed this 120-pound yellowfin tuna off Panama in May 2014. She caught the tuna on a Black Hole Cape Cod special 250g jigging rod and Avet MXL Raptor reel with 65-pound Fins braid. Panama yellowfins can amass so thick around bait schools that it’s possible to motor right into the school and watch tunas fly through the air next to the boat.”

 

 

 

Little Tunny:

” Cynthia landed this nice little tunny on a recent trip. The little tunny is often confused with similar species, mostly because it has different nicknames in different regions and looks like other tunalike fish. Find out the difference between a tuna and a bonito.”
