Ever wonder how certain people just know all the secret fishing spots? There is no greater pleasure than doing your research and finding that very special spot that you can call your own which constantly produces fish. These special spots or “gems” don’t typically fall into the lap of any angler.. And when these ”gems” are found, they are typically kept close to heart.
An important factor in successful fishing is location hunting. Many anglers don’t understand the importance of this, location hunting plays a very important key role in the aspect of fishing. One of the most important factors that many seem to dismiss is to research and explore the areas in which you plan to fish, it is the difference in terms of getting skunked or catching fish.
Using apps such as google maps, will provide you with a great birds eye view of the location you plan to fish. The satellite view on google maps can provide you not only with hidden trails and paths, but also the best fishing spots. Most of the time, you are able to even see the depths and drops off’s of a lake or river. It will give you a much better idea of the geographical layout of the waterways, it will also save you lots of time (time that can be better spent fishing!)
