What is EChip technology and how does it work?

What is ECHIP Technology?

ECHIP Electronic Bait Technology was invented in the greater Silicon Valley by Pro-Troll Fishing Products. It is the world’s first microchip for bait. The ECHIP attracts fish by replicating the voltage discharged by the nervous system of live bait.

The ECHIP is a miniature electronic device that triggers accurate strikes by nearby fish. Available in two sizes the ECHIP is small enough to be attached to hooks, lures or leaders.

Best of all ECHIP Electronic Bait Technology requires no batteries.

ECHIP Electronic Bait Technology

How does ECHIP work?

The ECHIP is made of a proprietary electronic crystal and ball which are mounted inside a stainless steel tube. The crystals hypersensitive electrons are activated by movement or vibration.

Every living creature’s nervous system emits an electrical voltage. Predator fish sense this in live bait fish. The ECHIP electronic bait technology replicates the voltage that predator fish detect.

The ECHIP has proven to be especially valuable on those tough days. Or days when hunting those prize winning older and bigger fish.

In these situations the more commonly known sensory systems sight, smell, sound & vibration are often compromised and inaccurate. This forces fish to rely on sensing electrical pulses to locate & capture food.

Many fish have difficulty seeing up close and in the wild fish compensate by using electro-sensitivity to locate and capture food. The ECHIP makes artificial and frozen bait appear alive which triggers accurate strikes by predator fish.

How ECHIP works


How can I get ECHIP?

ECHIP is built right into almost every Pro-Troll fishing lure and trolling flasher made, including the very popular Trout Killer range of trolling lures.

Alternatively you can purchase ECHIP's individually as a kit, each kit contains the necessary components to attach an ECHIP to your own lure, hook or leader.  ECHIP kits are available in single packs, three packs or a pack of six ready to go ECHIPS sliders.
