A magnetic pickup and a piece of metal attached to the line. When the fish is caught, the metal willleave the sensor!

Or maybe a shock sensor that understands the movement when the fish bites.

better use a slotted transiever IR or any. between the slot you will have a disc with cuts. something like an incremental encoder. with this, you know when the fish is caught and also how fast it goes! maybe is a shark so not to bother. or a whale!

I have seen something like this. It was a box attached to the rod. This box had a small lever on one side, about 5-6 cm. This lever has a slot that the line was somehow going through it. When the fish pulled the line, it moved the lever until the line was released from the slot.

I saw this many years ago and i do not really remember ho the lever was. You must experiment...
But this is a way that it works 100%

And the put a motor to pull the fish. And a gun to throw the hook back in.


Come on, fishing is no fun if automated...

I fish with 10 rods simultaneously... You know the way? I have 10 rods and they must not be moved for several hours until the fish is caught... Then i must act instantly. That's why i need a sensor.
