Entry Description

Inspired by fishing enthusiasts, Solar Rap is a solar-powered fishing lure. Used just as the conventional baits, it has the advantage of shining in deep water with its LED lights, charged by sun. Presented in a six-piece package set, it is designed for sea lovers that chase fish no matter it is day or night.
Activated with buttons placed on its eyes, LED lights start to lighten or blink (pressed twice).
Since fish are attracted to shining objects and bright spots, it becomes easier to catch fish with Solar Rap. Consists of a flexible solar panel, batteries, reflectors and hooks, it has two LED strips on its center, and also an LED in its back to light up fiber optic cables on its fin.
Designed to last long, it can be easily opened and rechargeable batteries can be replaced.
Enjoy catching fish with this bright lure, while you charge the others on board.
