It's that time of year when ice fishing enthusiasts gear up to brave extreme winter weather and venture out onto frozen lakes to pursue their passions. Ice fishing can be a mystery for those in milder climates who are more accustomed to using Navionics on a boat on water that is LIQUID. This all adds to the northerner's reputation for being tough, which ice anglers are.
For those making the most of frigid climates, ice fishing is a great pastime. It is best enjoyed in the company of fellow anglers, because it always helps to face tough challenges together… like picking the right spot to drill. Navionics can make a difference by enhancing your ice fishing experience.
It takes strategic preparation to ensure a successful day on the ice. Some anglers get a head start by marking their spots in the summer with the help of SonarChart™ Live. When you create your own maps, you can feel confident that you're making decisions based on the most recent depth data. Even without using SonarChart Live beforehand, the Navionics app is an incredibly versatile tool on the ice. It's a light, portable and inexpensive solution, allowing you to view and analyze lake maps at a 1-ft contour detail level. You can customize the SonarChart layer with Fishing Ranges, a new tool that allows you to shade multiple depth ranges at once for easy viewing.
This information results in more efficient techniques, high motivation and more catches.
