Create Custom Fishing Spots Map

There are many different reasons you may want to create a custom fishing spots map. Sometimes, our 100 mile radius maps have too many fishing spots to be imported into your GPS unit. Or, maybe you are only interested in bottom fishing on shipwrecks and reefs. Regardless of your needs, there are several different methods we have available for you to create your own custom maps to your specifications.

Custom Design By Fishing Status

Whether you want to merge your existing fishing spots with our spots, or have a specific GPS unit that you want a customized map designed for, we can help. Fishing Status will develop a custom map with the purchase of our Custom SD Card. Just tell us your specifications, and for what GPS unit(s), and we will deliver a custom fishing map for you. Have fishing spots that you want us to include? We also can merge/convert coordinates from previous GPS units or log books.  Contact us for more information.

Custom SD Card of Fishing Spots

Fishing Map Downloads

From  the full screen Fishing Map page and on the Download Fishing Spots page, you can specify specific structure (reefs, rocks & ledges, and shipwrecks), distance (5 to 100 miles), and the type of GPS file to download. For example, if you only wanted a GPS file of shipwrecks, you could download it and add it to your GPS unit or software with this feature. This is the most flexible option that allows you to pick not only distances, but also types of structure.

My Spots

From every fishing spot on the website, you can “Add to My Spots”. This allows you to create your own list of favorite fishing spots. Also, anytime you add a new report or fishing spot to the site, it will automatically add it to My Spots. From the My Spots page, you can download a GPS file of just the spots you have added to your list. For those who only want specific or the best spots should use this option.
