Use Your GPS to Catch More Fish!

The use of GPS technology by fishermen is increasing rapidly. Listed below are a few of the ways that it has been used or might be used in the future. If you would like to share additional ideas on how GPS can be used please email them to:

GPS Use in Fishing:

  • Marking Hotspots: When fishing in a large lake it can be difficult to return to the exact location where you have had success in the past. However, with GPS you can mark a waypoint at each of your productive areas and easily return to them the next time out.
  • Map Your Trolling Success: Each time you catch a fish, mark a waypoint with your GPS. Then when you return home you can upload those waypoints to a computer database. Now you have a powerful tool that can be used to map the most productive areas in the lake, where you have caught certain species of fish and where you have found success at different times of day.
  • Mooching Hotspots from Fishing Guides: A number of charter fishing fleets have banned the possession of GPS units on their boats. They are concerned that clients will waypoint the locations of their "secret" spots and then return on their own - thus eliminating the need for guide services.
