Lake Breakdowns for Fishing

 The i-Boating app includes lake breakdowns for fishing for mapped inland lakes worldwide. This is made possible by the Fishing AI™. I recently discussed in a youtube post how Fishing AI works.

Its like having a fishing professor do the lake breakdown to identify areas that are great for fishing.

  • Available for all inland lakes worldwide
  • Get  GPS coordinates for fishing breaklines and spots to use in your fish finder
  • Narrow down the part of the structure where you should focus
  • Aid for tournament preparation & fishing strategies from the comfort of your couch
