This automatic fishing reel does your fishing for you while you do other things!
The Yo Yo is an automatic fishing reel made of steel with a tempered spring that automatically sets the hook when the trigger is released by a fish taking the bait. When the fish tries to get away, the spring-loaded line reels them back in - automatically. These reels are very popular for catching Crappie and Catfish.
Yo Yo Fishing Reel
Yo-Yo's can be attached to limbs, boat docks, the side of a boat, or any other means that will suspend the reel a couple of inches above the water. They also make an excellent device for ice fishing. Many people use these yo-yo's for jug fishing. Use in conjunction with your survival fishing kit.

You should keep a yo yo or two in your survival kit. Instead of actively fishing, you can set this automatic fishing reel and use your limited daylight to take care of other things such as improving your shelter. Check the yo-yo after a couple of hours and retrieve your dinner. Eat a great meal and sleep more comfortably (under the circumstances).
