“When we set up a Sportfishin’ Simulator at events, it creates a lot of interest in fishing. Parents love seeing their children catching the big one.”


Doug Darr, Alabama Wildlife & Fisheries

“There was a lot of yelling and cheering going on, so people came by to see what was happening... once they were in, they shopped.”

Dave Krantz, Fishing Tackle Retailer Magazine

"If you're an experienced fisherman and you stood there with a pole in your hand and blindfolded, I don't think you could honestly tell the difference."

Steve Hill, Associated Press

“I took the Simulator to a large Billfish tournament and it was the absolute big hit of the event.”

Robert Van Norman Productions

“The response for the Simulator at our first trade show was overwhelming. We now have a second one so we can handle the crowds.”

Mike Devlin, Infoteria Inc.

“It's awesome... it compares very well to real fishing. I've been fishing all my life and the nibbles and strikes are very realistic.”

Pat East, Miami Herald

The Sportfishin’ Simulator is consistently the No. 1 attraction at Consumer and Trade Shows; is used by dozens of State and Federal agencies for outreach programs and conservation awareness campaigns; is a valuable tool for tackle testing and instruction; and is an exceptional draw at retail promotions, hospitality venues and special events.

Celebrating our 20th Anniversary!

History: The Sportfishin’ Simulator was invented by Canadian sport fishing personality Charlie White.

Charlie is also the inventor of the downrigger, architect of underwater attractions, and author of numerous books and videos on fishing.  Originally designed to teach anglers visiting West Coast fishing lodges not to lose “the big one” when they get it on the line, the Simulator is now sold throughout the world.  Using rare underwater film footage that Charlie has compiled over many years of fish behavioral research and new species footage, a variety of fishing simulations continue to be created in exhilarating detail.
