Tactibite Fish Call

tactibite fish callFather and son “fishtrepreneurs” Jeff and Jack Danos hope to catch a Shark with the Tactibite Fish Call, their “secret weapon” for fishing, in Shark Tank episode 802. 17-year-old Jack created the product at home with a 3D printer when he was just 15. They brought the product to market with a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised $112,573 on a $10,000 goal.

The secret behind the Tactibite Fish Call is “tactile transducers,” which are mobile speakers mounted to a hard surface. Toss the fish call into the water and it makes sounds that mimic the sounds of schooling and feeding fish. All you have to do is fish near the fish call and you should catch more fish. It weighs about a pound and is the size of a can of beer. It comes with an anchor and anchor line, too.

The original Tactibite Fish Call was made from a 3D printer, but the father/son team have secured a manufacturer for future production. They have a patent pending and sell the product for $99.99. Many reviews from fishermen say they were skeptics at first, but came to believe after increasing their catch.

Jeff and Jack likely need funds for increased production, the only question is will their fish call work on Sharks?

Jeff and Jack enter seeking  $150,000 for 10% of their business. They give their pitch, show a video of them catching fish, then hand out samples. The Sharks seem interested, especially when they learn they’ve done $330,000 in the past five months. They’re even more excited to learn that it costs $16 to make and it sells for $99.99.

Daymond seems interested – he goes fishing 6 times a month. The guys reveal they have $500,000 worth of product in stock as they’ve been reinvesting profits in inventory. The offers start flying. Kevin offers $150,000 for 20%. Daymond matches it. Mark went out, then Lori came in at$150,000 for 15%. Jack countered with $200,000 for 15%, but Lori held firm.

Kevin and Lori start to quibble and Robert says he’ll give them what they asked for: $150,000 for 10%. Lori immediately matches Robert and Jack asks if they’d partner. They say no and go with Robert, since he gave them what they wanted right off the bat.
