If you have ever gone fishing before then you probably can relate to the feeling of being rushed. Sometimes it just seems as though the whole process is taking way too long and that you are never going to make it home with the amount of fish you have set out to catch. The good news is; there are many changes in technology that are helping fisherman along the way. Not only are you able to find where you are going quicker than ever but you can also locate fish without a doubt and capture more in a single try. This means, much less time wasted on finding your way around and more time spent filling up your boat so you are ready to head back home and empty your boat’s contents. On top of that, boats are able to store many more fish than ever and for longer periods of time. With all of these wonderful advancements, it’s no wonder fisherman are happier than ever. Everything is becoming very simple and productivity is higher than ever which is not only great if you are a fisherman but this is also fantastic for customers because they can always get what they want without delays or shortages. If you love eating fish, there has never been a better time to be a fan.
GPS Has Your Back
In the past, one of the main problems fishermen had when they were out at sea was that they would get lost quite easily. When all you have is a map, you really don’t have much to go on. Plus, it can be very difficult to see where you are going when there is a storm in your way. These days, you never have to wonder where you’re going because just about every ship has GPS built in. On top of that, you can always stay in contact so if there is ever an emergency, you will be able to locate help and they can know exactly where you are at all times.
Sonar Helps You See What You Are Catching
Another major issue fisherman had in the past was the fact that they didn’t know where fish were. Yes, there were areas that were busiest during certain times of the year but that wasn’t much to go on. This means, a lot of time was being wasted trying to locate fish and guessing definitely isn’t anywhere near as helpful as having sonar. Being able to actually see where fish are means you can spend more time filling up your boat and less time driving around and wasting fuel and coming up with no fish or very few fish in your nets. This makes productivity better than ever.
Bottom Trawlers Helps You Catch More in One Swoop
With the help of bottom trawlers, you are able to catch more fish than ever. In the past, nets could only reach so far but these heavier nets cover a much larger area so you can grab many more fish in a single try. All you have to do is line up your net based on what you are seeing on your camera and sonar and you are going to spend much less time coming up with empty nets. This means a fuller boat faster than ever and making more money than ever before. We are definitely glad someone invented these nets because it was very tough in the past.
Flash-Freezing so You Can Stay Out Longer Than Ever
Another great change that has been made in semi-recent years is the ability for fish to be stored for much longer. Flash-freezing is a technology that literally allows you to store fish for months on end so you do not have to keep going to shore to empty your boat. This allows you to be much more productive while you are out at sea; getting much larger loads than ever so you never have to feel as though you are wasting time or space and going home before you need to. We still can’t believe people ever did without this type of freezing; it seems like an absolute necessity.
Less Boat Maintenance with Building Advancements
Boats are tougher than ever. They are able to handle all types of weather without needing to go back to shore; this means not even storms can affect the amount of time you are out at sea anymore. On top of that, you are able to spend less time maintaining and fixing your boat. With things such as decks that get rid of water on their own and even the ability to have more electronics hooked up than ever before you can multitask better than ever and keep everyone on the task at hand which is a must.
