How Technology Can Enhance Your Fishing Experience

How Technology Can Enhance Your Fishing Experience

In today's world, technology has become an integral part of our lives. It has even made its way into our fishing experience, and we have to admit, it can be pretty helpful. There are several apps that we recommend downloading before heading out on your next fishing trip. Using these apps regularly can help enhance your experience on the water.

Windy - is a free app that we highly recommend for fishing in Puget Sound and other waters of Washington. It provides a detailed view of current wind conditions and forecasts them into the future. Wind is a crucial factor when it comes to fishing, whether from a boat or the beach. Always check the wind conditions before heading out to ensure a safe and successful trip.

OnX - is another app that we highly recommend. Although it comes with an annual fee, it's worth every penny. OnX provides a detailed map outlining property ownership and offers tools for offline use. Public land can be hard to come by on Puget Sound, but OnX can show you exactly where that public land is and how to get there. It also includes tools to take notes, mark fishing spots, and lay tracks so you can replicate your success. Being able to look back at notes can be crucial to understanding past success! 

Fish Washington is a free app created by WDFW, and it's very useful. It provides up-to-date fishing regulations for the area you'll be fishing. It's essential to stay informed on regulations, especially when it comes to emergency closures in Washington where things change regularly. This app is the perfect tool to ensure you're fishing within the regulations.

Whether you're fishing from a boat or the beach, these three apps are a must-have for enhancing your fishing experience. OnX, Windy, and Fish Washington provide valuable tools and information that will help you make the most of your time on the water. Don't leave home without them!
