They're going to have to change the phrase "shooting fish in a barrel" when this gadget comes out. People will be saying "it's like catching fish with a Fish Call." If you want guaranteed bites, you need to check out this cool new invention.

It was designed and built entirely using 3-D printing.

This cone-shaped tool just needs the flick of a switch to start working. Users turn the Fish Call on and throw it into the water where the suspect of school of fish to be.

The Fish Call then begins to emit supersonic pulse that apparently agitates the fish and fuels their appetite. This pulse causes them to start eating more aggressively. The hungrier the fish are, the likelier it is that one will bite on the line.

The father and son team behind the Fish Call stumbled upon this new type of transducer technology that transforms almost any object into a sound and vibration generator. The two started a Kickstarter page to begin raising money for their project.

As of today, they have raised $33,796 from just about 250 donors around the world. If the two are able to continue with things as planned, donors who pledged $99 or more are expected to receive their Fish Call in December of this year.

Here's the Fish Call promo video if you want to take a peek:
