Q: How did you get all these fishing spots?

Our guides have designated the mapping areas according to many of their better fishing spots as a group, and are compensated for their efforts in helping create some of the best digital fishing spots maps ever produced. Period.


 

Q: How do you know all this about mapping and waypoints?

A: Our lead mapping designer, Dana King, was an employee for the largest GPS manufacturer in the world for many years. This type of work was part of her Job. Without her and her team, this program would not exist.
