I've had one on my boat for a couple of weeks now, but probably only used it on 2 trips. Been spending most of my fishing time in my buddies new Phoenix! But I've not noticed any difference so far between when it's on and when it's off. They say it takes time to figure them out, so we will see. Not calling it a success or failure at this point.

I remain unimpressed with mine. I've tried it in many conditions and on many settings here on our Ozark lakes. I have one "maybe it helped a little" situation and several "it shut the bite down" situations. Some guys report different results though, so hard to say if it'll work for your situation or not. But I personally cannot recommend it, FWIW.

I like it, to me it's just common sense. Take ledge fishing or smallie fishing whichever, we work so hard to fire up a school and once we catch one, they all start biting. They're competitive, highly competitive and they Hydrowave has got to stimulate that response. After all, the noises you hear and bass attacking and eating the baitfish.

In fact, I first became a believer after actually listening to the sounds. I used to own an aquarium company, basically I would setup fresh and saltwater aquariums for companies lobbies and maintain them. If you've ever fed a fish live bait you'll be amazed how well you can hear that on the outside of the aquarium, kinda sounds like they're eating potato chips. crunch, crunch.

These are some of the sounds incorporated with the Hydrowave.

I still am learning when and where and why, but I'm telling you when they a collide it makes life-chaninging days on the water. Plus, it doesn't hurt you, if it gives me one more bite a day, it'll pay for itself in no time.
