The map shows the amount of logged catches in each body of water, which species anglers have caught and with what gear. There’s also information on local points of interest such as boat ramps, marinas, bait shops, license vendors and more. Looking for a place to launch your boat for a day out on the water? Simply browse our map to find out!
Depth maps allow you to create a strategy on where to find fish based on observable structures and the depth of waters. Since certain species are more likely to be found at certain depths, using depth maps allow you to create a strategy on where to find fish.
Contour lines and color indicate how deep or shallow bodies of waters are and can also assist in finding structures underwater.
Lighter colors surrounded by dark waters might for instance indicate reefs and since many fish tend to hide among them it lets you as an angler know the best spot to fish.
When creating your fishing strategy take note of depth changes, look for structures you might find promising as well as anything else of interest to find your prime fishing spot.
In case something catches your eye when strategizing or out on the water, you can make note of it in the app with the help of waypoints! You’ll never again forget the exact spot of a honey hole, the reef bustling with fish or the log you wanted to but didn’t have the time to investigate.
