Using Online Maps To Plan Fishing Trips – YakAngler

Fishing is a relaxing and rewarding pastime, thought to be reserved for only the most traditional people. In the past, great spots were found and passed on to children, friends, and locals in the area. With the power of technology, the average fisherman can utilize satellites to find a spot to cast a line.

Key Takeaways:

  • Word-of-mouth is generally the best way to find out about great spots for fishing trips, but you can also use technology to your advantage. If you know where to look and what to look for you can increase your odds of locating a great fishing spot.
  • Just because a fishing spot looks ideal on Google Maps doesn’t mean it will look the same when you arrive. For a better idea about how the area might look like open up Google Earth, which is a free download.
  • Using satellite imagery is a great way to spot mangroves, sea grass flats with potholes and oyster bars, which are all great places to find fish in the fall. This is because as everyone knows, any type of underwater structure is usually a big draw for smaller fish to hide, which will then lure bigger fish to the area.
