The Line Winder™ is a product developed for ice fishing. It is comprised of a motor driven reel winder, a pop-up flag that indicates a fish strike, automatic forward and reverse line movement, and a base that will sit on top of the ice or snow.
The motor and battery are encased in a waterproof housing, and the electrical wires are insulated to protect them from extremely low temperatures. The motor is automatically engaged by the forward/reverse switch, and moves the drive shaft accordingly, which reels the line clockwise or counter-clockwise. When the line is taken by a fish, the pop-up flag is released to let the fisherman know that a strike has taken place.
The platform is easily disengaged from the ice or snow for catch retrieval, then reset for another one. This way of ice fishing has become more popular in recent years.
The Line Winder™ is a convenient way to fish under the ice. Everything is automatic, and when the flag pops up, the fisherman knows that he has a fish strike. This simple process makes ice fishing easier for everyone who wants to try something new.
