Fish Fun Co.’s “Remote Control Fishing Pole”
Here’s a product that will turn any r/c boat into a remote control fishing boat!
Looking at the features of “The RC Fishing Pole”…It’s designed to attach to any r/c boat and to turn the boat into a rc fishing boat. It’s for those that already have a remote control hobby boat, you attach it, then you can use the boat to go fishing.
“The RC Fishing Pole”, comes with everything to get started, instructions, holders, connectors….$19.95
It’s simple to put on any r/c boat.
One great feature is you don’t need any tools, screws or glue to put it on, and it removes easily from the r/c boat as fast as you put in on.
Second great feature is a line release when the fish hits, catch any size fish.
The line release is simple, one sticky back velcro dot goes on the end of “The RC Fishing Pole”. Then the other one goes on your fishing line, placed to allow your bait/hook to be underwater, you can choose the depth by where you put the velcro dot.
Can you adjust the tension, well, to a degree I would say, depending on how hard you afix the two velcro’s together. They don’t need too much pressure to stick together.

Two ways to use it fishing, for big fish, and small fish.
So barely putting them together is good for panfish, where tighter is bigger fish.
If you are just going after the small fish then you can do this. Attach the line to “The RC Fishing Pole” , there’s is a small hole at the tip to do just that. So when the fish hits you use the r/c fishing boat to pull in the fish.
I’ve seen those tiny release clips for planer boards about 1-2 inches long that you could choose to attach to the small hole.
How much weight can the r/c boat travel with, for baits, sinkers, etc., 3-4 oz. tops, unless you put the planer clip on “The RC FIshing Pole”.
Speed? R/C Boats vary in features with regard to variable speed, since “The RC FIshing Pole” will attach to any r/c boat, you can buy a boat that fit’s your needs. They boats they sell at RC Fishing World are not variable speed, they cruise at a good trolling speed..15-20 mph
Same thing with battery life, the batteries for r/c boats can be upgraded, there are some really good batteries out there at most hobby shops and online, so if your boat doesn’t come with a real powerful one you can always buy a better one. I’ve even heard of joining two batteries together. Most r/c boats come with a 7.2 volt 1800 nicd, battery that gives you 20-30 minutes constant run time. Charge time, about 3 hours.
If you are using an off the shelf r/c boat, and attaching “The RC FIshing Pole” to it, all of the regular features of the r/c boat and remote are what you would get. Most of us have played with a remote control toy at one time or another so, learning how to operate the r/c boat insn’t an issue.
There are two ways to use “The RC Fishing Pole. One where the line disconnects when a fish hits, the good thing about that is catching a lunker, it can be used another way. There is a small hole at the tip of “The RC Fishing Pole’ to attach a line….then using the r/c boat to actually fish, and then the boat pulls in the fish, this is for small panfish.
RC Fishing is a new take on fishing, and for some of us it provides a soluution to fish under low lying branches where we can’t cast, and to navigate our line to inacessable spots. The youngsters with all of their electronic gadgetry love it too, for them it takes fishing to another level. I like it because I’m a fisherman, I like to catch fish.
