Fishing Hotspots AI

 We are pleased to announce a major update to the i-Boating application. All our customers now have access to the Fishing AI, a large scale AI model that emulates an expert angler to identify fishing breaklines and fishing hotspots.

Some of the variables that it takes into account are:

  • Lake bathymetry/topography
    • Point Bars
    • Humps / Underwater Islands
    • Channels
    • Saddles
    • Artificial / Man Made Structures
    • River Bed
    • Ledges
    • Side Feeder Streams
    • Pits
    • And more...
  • Local Knowledge for a lake gained over the years
  • Weather Patterns
  • Vegetation Maps

I have included a tutorial video showing this in action.

It is available on all platforms - Android, iOS, Windows and MacOS.

Claytor Lake, Virginia, ENC Chart

 We are pleased to announce the availability of Claytor lake, Virginia ENC chart.  We have tried to included most requested layers in the electronic lake depth map for Claytor, including but not limited to:

  • HD depth contours / bathymetry
  • Obstruction/Hazards/Shoal Areas
  • Rocks
  • Fish  Structures 
  • Boat ramps
  • Fishing Piers

We have been tracking this lake in our internal tracking system even before the i-Boating app was published.  I added this in our tracking system in 2014. We were finally able to acquire enough data for this lake to release mapping for it today. I am very happy to finally be able to close that tracking bug. Its been a long time coming.
