Reading Our Maps

Multiple options to give you the advantage

Understanding your target fish environment will help you identify areas to fish, the more you know about your target fish the more you know what to look for on your map.

How to read fishing map - Depth Contours

Contour Lines

One of the most important of all symbols on a fishing map is the contour line. These tell you the rise and fall of the lake bottom revealing drop offs, humps, saddles and flats.
The closer the contour the steeper the drop off, the wider the interval the flatter and more gradual the slope.

How to read fishing map - Bathymetric Imagery

Bathymetric Bottom Mapping

Bathymetric bottom mapping drastically increases the visibility of underwater structures such as drop offs & humps, taking plain old contours to the next level. These maps are colour coded to clearly define water depth and to help you better understand the underwater landscape.

How to read fishing map - Aerial Imagery

Aerial Imagery

Aerial maps can give an angler who knows how to read them a huge advantage. Focus on the two most important factors, underwater structure & channels. Probe the areas you plan to fish for important features like underwater vegetation, oyster beds, potholes in vegetation flats, mangrove trees and rocky outcrops. Areas with heavy current will show in the form of trenches on the bottom, predator fish often seek locations with current so their meals can be brought to them. Combine this with our depth contours and you should have no problem locating the most productive fishing grounds.

How to read fishing map - Low Water Aerial Imagery

Low Water Aerial Imagery

Low water aerial imagery is a game-changer, every angler wants to know what lies beneath the water - these maps do exactly that, revealing all sorts of hidden fish-holding details like shallow humps, fallen trees, laydowns, big rocks, deep holes, old creek beds and rocky bottoms - they show everything. Once you know what habitat your target fish loves, they will have nowhere to hide. Available only on selected maps.

  • This upgrade has made it a heap more user friendly, used it the other day to find a shallow ledge and cracked three cod in four casts! A very handy tool for anyone that fishes Mulwala.

  • The ability to look at both marked and unmarked channels, depth contours, waypoints, previous catches and a few thousand lay downs at the touch of a button gives me all the extra time to concentrate on the important thing CATCHING fish! I highly recommend any keen angler who fishes Lake Mulwala to give it a go. You won't be disappointed.

  • Used the app myself all weekend to fish the edge of a few snaky creeks. Found it great and would not be without it.

  • We have received the upgraded Map Card for our new finder and we couldn't be happier! Love the detail and some of the old creek beds, there would have been no way in hell we would have found these without the map! We both thank you very much for putting these map cards together. Makes our fishing and boating experience on Lake Mulwala so much better with lots more water now opened up to us.
