Using a remote control mower to cut your lawn? That's working smarter, not harder. Using a remote control boat to troll your favourite fishing spot? That's just making a lazy sport even lazier -- which, of course, is awesome. Why struggle with wrangling a long fishing pole at the crack of dawn when you can simply troll using a wireless controller?
This 17.5-inch long craft is capable of snagging and wrangling a two-pound fish, and can troll hard to reach areas, like under a dock, that a cast from a rod and reel simply can't get to. Using the wireless remote it can be steered forwards, backwards, left, and right, and it comes with a telescoping 44-inch long grapple that makes it easy to retrieve the boat after you've reeled in your catch.
Powered by six AA batteries and a 9V for the controller, this fishing boat is available from Hammacher Schlemmer for just $US70, and you won't need a trailer to get it in and out of the water. [Hammacher Schlemmer]
