So much has changed since in the world of Fishing since the days of my youth. Technology now provides us with hightech fishing equipment and electronics that do much of the hard work for us. No exception to this is a handy little Iphone App provided by Navionics.
The app combines GPS capability with underlying basemaps illustrating the Bathymetry of many lakes in Ontario and the world for that matter. Basically this allows you to target specific depths, structures while empowering you with Navigation capabilities that help with avoiding those skag eating shoals that are not always marked. Added to that are features such as:
- ability to set waypoints
- built in speedometer
- ability to track paths
- community layers where you can upload or post specific information about a lake
I can’t even fathom the time this app has saved me and the increase in fishing productivity it has generated. Give the Navionics app a dopwnload, it will change the way you fish!
