The Automatic Fisherman consists of a rectangular base with two small raised tabs that a vertical arm is fastened to with a nut and a bolt. This vertical arm is known as the trigger arm. This trigger arm is adjustable to accommodate fishing rods from 23 inches to 34 inches. This trigger arm should move freely so it falls down when the fishing rod is not attached. The trigger arm has a hole located at the top for a mercury light and a counterweight on the top so it falls down out of the way to fight the fish. The rectangle base has notches cut out at the bottom, so it can grip the ice when there is not any snow. There is also a perpendicular support that stops the unit from tipping on its side in windy conditions. The base also has a hollow tube that acts as a rod holder. The holder has a support structure to give it extra strength for those really big fish.
