Computer-powered fishing pole

A Kansas man has gotten a utility patent for a computerized fishing pole that he plans to begin selling.

Edward Pope's fishing pole is called the Poletap SmartRod, and he's now trying to get the product into the retail market.

Pope, who runs Audio Visual Services, received the patent on the technology in the pole, which he says uses computer controlled accelerometer technology so that the pole can detect when a fish is biting. The SmartRod also has different bite sensitivity settings and alerts anglers to a bite with a light and alarm.

The pole is water resistant and will sell for between $55 and $70, depending on whether it's bought with a reel.
