Hexbug Aquabot from Innovation First is a small swimming fish powered by button cell batteries. We've seen it before last year from a New Zealand company called Zuru Toys.
Put a hook on one and you'd have the ultimate self propelling bass lure. The clear plastic packaging is put to good use -- as a small fish tank, shaped like a hexigon, of course. About the size of a bass lure, these self-propelled robotic fish look just like Robo Fish; which were developed in New Zealand last year and still appear to be on the market (http://amzn.to/13ft2cH). Each fish is powered by two button-cell batteries (included). The silicon rubbery tails can be pulled off and used on different fish. The tail motion is randomized by a small internal computer, which gives a lifelike swimming motion to the fish. There is no on or off switch. Instead, you touch each side of the fish, on two capacitive sensors if you want the fish to swim out of water. The sensors also can be triggered by water.
