Angler Labs AngLR Tracker Anglr.tech; $100 Angler Labs is brand new and utilized ICAST to launch its product line—which got plenty of buzz. The AngLR Tracker works in sync with AngLR fishing app, which is free of charge, currently available on Android, and scheduled for IOS release in September. The app itself has tons of capabilities: It tracks weather, lure selections, fish caught, catch rates, hot spots, and a variety of other information. The AngLR Tracker is a small device that attaches to a fishing rod, taking the data collection to a new level. The device tracks the number of casts made, reeling patterns, hook-ups, and fighting fish, and anglers can press a button to drop pins and record catches. Logging information and tracking patterns can have a long-lasting effect on an angler's success, and there's probably no better way to collect a trove of info than the new technologies from Angler Labs.

As happens every year at ICAST, all the big names in electronics unleashed new, high-powered, high-priced, cutting-edge chartplotters and sonars. It would have been easy to get the skinny on each model and compile a list of the latest and greatest for 2017. But that wouldn’t be any fun, and the majority of those products are out of most anglers’ budgets anyway. Among the usual suspects, however, I uncovered some very exciting electronics, including an affordable night-vision device, a portable underwater camera, and, believe it or not, a phenomenally priced fishfinder. Here they are.
