Is Fish Seeker legal to use in Australia?
Yes. A recent assessment from the Queensland Dept. of Agriculture and Fisheries in respect of the Fisheries Act 1994 advises that the Fish Seeker complies as it is only used to deploy the fishing apparatus i.e. the line and hooks. At the same time the fisher must comply with the prescribed regulations of that state surrounding use of the particular fishing apparatus under Chapter 4, Part 4 of the Fisheries Declaration 2019 (e.g. in Queensland, no more than a total of 6 hooks attached to the fishing line in tidal waters and no more than 1 hook attached to the fishing line in non-tidal waters).
What is the speed of the Fish Seeker in flat water?
Approx. 3 knots (5 km/h)
What is the weight of the battery?
What is the breaking strain of the "Traces set"?
The main trace line, which the traces holding the hooks and the sinker attach to, is 80 pound breaking strain. The traces attaching the hooks and the sinker to the main trace line are 35 pound breaking strain. This way if the sinker or a hook gets snagged and you are forced to break it free you will only lose that piece as the 35 pound trace will break first.
How many hooks are on the "Traces set"?
There are 5 hooks spaced a metre apart, each with a 40cm trace that is attached to the main Trace line on a swivel.
What type of hooks are they?
Stainless steel size 6/0 recurve or "circle" hooks
How long is the Trace main line?
What are the battery details?
A unique lithium-ion 10.8 Volt DC, 6.6 Amphour, 71Wh battery which takes approx. 3.5 hours to charge using supplied charger. It has a maximum run-time of 12 minutes when fully charged with a range of 1,000 metres in flat water.
