Using Fishbrain maps on desktop

Finding a place to go fishing is often cited as one of the largest barriers preventing new anglers from enjoying the sport. The Fishbrain App’s intricate map helps tear down these barriers by clearly displaying bodies of water, labeling fishing areas and displaying shared catches.

The power of this map, in the palm of your hand, is an important tool for finding open waters for fishing. Sometimes, however, scouting for your next day on the water requires a large scale view.

Problem Solved.

Fishbrain is proud to offer your Fishbrain map is now fully available on your desktop computer as well. Never before have you had the functionality of a map like this, making this the perfect at home scouting tool. Now you can study catch positions, check for hot spots, and search nearby waters on the big screen and from the comfort of your home. 

Know Before You Go

Desktop maps are the perfect tool for planning. Whether you are heading across the country, or looking for a new secret spot, or just trying to find a more promising section of the same old fishing hole, make sure to search before you go.

By checking your desktop maps before heading to the water, you can find those hot spots, and promising areas, giving yourself the precious gift of time. When it’s finally time to make your first cast, you will be spending more time fishing and much less time aimlessly searching for a better spot.

Features Available for Online Maps
