Long line fishing has become extremely popular in recent years with the electric torpedo fishing systems. With the ability to tow out a long line with 25 baited hooks kilometers out to sea, electric kontikis are an effective way of reaching areas as if you had a boat, but from the safety of being on the beach.

Kontiki with Sonar fish detection $5490.00

Why not have your Kontiki stop when it comes across a school of fish? We have developed a kontiki that uses a sonar fish finder and we have patented it!!When the kontiki is travelling out and comes across a school of fish the sonar circuit will determine the size of the school and if the biomass signal is great enough the kontiki will carry on until the hook section is over the school and the kontiki motor will stop.
No need to send the kontiki out over the horizon past all the fish anymore when you can stop right over them.
