We also recently integrated survey data for several northern lakes in Michigan and Wisconsin. Browse the below highlights and comparative views. And, for a closer look at the cartography details, click on the lake name links to be directed to our interactive online Chart Viewer.

Arizona – Lake Pleasant

Lake Pleasant is an artificial reservoir that provides crucial water storage and endless summer fun northwest of Phoenix. Visitors to this bustling recreational area enjoy boating, fishing, hiking, biking, and camping, and will now see additional campground and parking lot sites mapped around the lake. Boat and shore anglers will find even more HD contours available when planning their next adventure. The local catch consists of a variety of species such as largemouth bass, striped bass, crappie, tilapia, channel catfish and more!
The area surrounding Pleasant Harbor Marina, situated northeast of Waddell Dam, now includes mooring buoy locations.
Anglers can now target clearly marked submerged culverts, road beds and creek beds near Scorpion Bay Marina.

California – Folsom Lake

Boaters and anglers alike will appreciate the remarkable HD detail added to Folsom Lake in early 2018. Located in California’s Sierra Nevada foothills, this popular lake is a great spot for paddling, waterskiing, sailing, cruising and fishing.
Updates include improved overall HD coverage and mapping of pre-impoundment structures such as submerged bridges, foundations, roads and creek beds.
Greater HD detail has been added near Folsom Dam which was built, primarily for flood control, in 1955. Note the increased visibility of the American River bed as well as the addition of road beds.
Anglers scouting the area northwest of Folsom Lake Marina and south of Knoxton Point will now see a high spot, accessible during flood pool, with several marked brush and rock piles. Be sure to check the lake levels before adding this type of location to your fishing route.

Florida – Lake Harris, Little Lake Harris, Lake Eustis and Lake Tohopekaliga.

We’re proud to release updates in the heart of Florida’s bass fishing territory for three lakes within the Harris Chain of Lakes as well as Lake Toho which is part of the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes. All four bodies of water are well known to the professional and recreational bass angling community and are the location of choice for many world-class tournaments. Browse the changes below and be sure to update your cards before heading out to wet a line!
Find additional shoreline coverage and HD contours, as well as channel details along popular Haines Creek which connects Lake Eustis to Lake Griffin.
Updates have been made to the area surrounding Big Toho Marina; the official launch site of ICAST Cup, presented by FLW, and the Bassmaster Opens.

The National Professional Anglers Association (NPAA) takes National Fishing and Boating week seriously, by recognizing it all year long.

Forestville, Wis. – June 21, 2018 – The National Professional Anglers Association (NPAA) takes National Fishing and Boating week seriously, by recognizing it all year long. Through partnerships with Future Angers Foundation (FAF) and Learn 2 Fish With Us, NPAA members host Future Angler Events that educate and encourage young aspiring anglers all over the country throughout the year.

 

Over the past nine years, NPAA members have held 700 fishing clinics, educating over 71,000 kids. Future Angler clinics are held at a variety of venues including schools, tournaments, fishing clubs, and fairs. These clinics teach a variety of skills from basic casting to tying Clinch and Palomar knots as well as educating future anglers on the importance of wearing life vests, to the Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) mantra of ‘Clean Drain Dry’. These clinics improve young anglers’ skill set, confidence, and safety.

 

“Participation in outdoor activities such as fishing is part of American life,” said Patrick Neu, NPAA Executive Director. “Fishing is a family activity that can be enjoyed by all ages and educating anglers helps them become successful at the sport as well as becoming effective stewards of our public waters.”

 

According to the Outdoor Industry Association 2017 special report, over 47 million Americans ages 6 and up partook in fishing in 2016. From 2015 to 2016, fishing participation increased by 1.5 million people, marking 2016 as the highest participation rate in fishing since 2012.

 

“The growing participation in fishing makes educating future anglers a high priority,” said Neu. “As the NPAA membership grows, we are eager to expand our fishing clinics to educate and engage more American youth.”

 

All NPAA Future Angler Events include a water safety segment, angler education and AIS education. NPAA members volunteer their time and the events are free to attend. Funding for all materials and equipment for Future Angler Events are provided through a grant from FAF.

AQUA-VU: The Smartphone of Underwater Cameras

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Smartphone of Underwater Cameras

 

 

New upgrades, great value highlight hand-sized Aqua-Vu® micro 4.3 Stealth

 

 

Crosslake, MN (June 21, 2018) – Now nearly eight years ago—about the time Apple® unveiled its fourth iPhone—fishing’s first handheld underwater viewer landed in anglers’ hands. The original Aqua-Vu micro Underwater Viewing System opened the lines of communication between humans and fish. More to the point, the pocket-sized camera showed anglers exactly what was happening beneath the surface, live. Valuable visuals like bass or crappies buried in cover appeared clearly on the Aqua-Vu screen, yet still aren’t easily discernable with sonar.

 

On the eve of the fishing industry’s ICAST show, Aqua-Vu is set to unleash its most affordable, portable underwater camera yet: the micro 4.3 Stealth. Merging major value and dynamic underwater video, the handheld micro Stealth offers nice upgrades without boosting price.

 

 

“The viewscreen on the micro 4.3 Stealth screen is noticeably brighter and sharper than our previous entry-level underwater camera,” says Aqua-Vu president Ben Gibbs. “For under $250, anglers can be studying the underwater layout of their lake— and the whole system fits right in their tackle box and in the palm of their hand.”

 

Beyond the LCD itself, which expanded from 3.5- to 4.3-inches, Gibbs notes multiple system upgrades. The camera optics received a substantial boost in resolution, providing greater detail and picture quality, amplifying discernment of vegetation, fish and baitfish down to identification of mussel shells.

 

Penetrating dark and stained water, the bottlecap-size micro camera also features integrated auto-activated infrared lighting. Even in dark or dirty water, IR lights still make it possible to discern underwater terrain in front of the lens.

 

 

The smartphone sized micro Stealth camera features waterproof magnetic charging and tripod ports for attaching to a Pro Snake mount.

 

 

 

Aqua-Vu engineers enhanced the unit’s power and video output system, adding a new magnetic dual battery charging / RCA video-out port. “The magnetic port lies flush with the display unit,” notes Gibbs. “This new enhancement makes the LCD completely IP67-waterproof—another boost in value. It also provides easier battery charging because the magnetic input is self-aligning; doesn’t require the user to line up pins and holes, which can also break.”

 

Connecting the Aqua-Vu micro camera to monitor, 50 feet of ruggedized cable is marked with depth indicators in 1-foot increments for precise deployment. The backside of the display sports an integrated cable wrap for tidy management of extra camera cable.

 

Standard equipment on all micro 4.3 Stealth systems is an Adjustable Trolling Camera Fin with clip-on ballast weight, as well as a special Ice Fishing Camera Clip for hardwater use.

 

“To verify what I’m seeing on sonar, I mount my micro Stealth camera right in the console of my boat,” says Aqua-Vu pro, Brian Brosdahl. “The monitor has a female coupler that I connect to a portable Pro Snake mount—clamps anywhere I want it, right beside my sonar screens. Aqua-Vu is just as valuable in my boat as it is in my ice fishing house.”

 

 

 

 

 

micro® Stealth 4.3 Handheld Underwater Viewing System:

  • 4.3-inch color LCD with integrated cable wrap
  • Rechargeable lithium-ion battery with on-screen indicator
  • Magnetic battery charger
  • 50-feet ruggedized camera cable with depth indication
  • Advanced LCD and camera optics
  • Adjustable Trolling Camera Fin & clip-on weight
  • IP67 Waterproof
  • RCA Video Out

 

Available at major outdoor retailers late this summer, the new Aqua-Vu micro 4.3 Stealth Underwater Viewing System carries an economical retail price of $229.99. For more information, visit www.aquavu.com.

What? Best Fishing Day Ever!!!

What? Best Fishing Day Ever!!!

 

“Best Fishing Day Ever!!!”, this is what we heard from the youth and parents that attended the Secret Fishing Spot fishing clinic, which was held by Learn 2 Fish With Us, Badger Sportsman and the National Professional Anglers Association.   Thanks to a local farmer who allowed our group to fish a pond that had plenty of fish!!  Captain Greg from Learn 2 Fish With Us and NPAA organized this special event, allowing youth who attended a Learn 2 Fish With Us clinic in 2018, to attend.

 

The day started out with the youth meeting their fishing lead that would help them all evening long as they fished, along with receiving a Shakespeare spin cast or spinning fishing combo.  Youth, parents and the fishing lead then took a short walk to the pond where they were instructed on safety and setting the hook.  Captain Greg’s first two youth of his group casted, and as quick as the bobber hit the water, it was under, and the kids were yelling “FISH ON!!”.   Besides catching fish the youth and parents learned how to adjust a boober to fish different depths, place a worm on the hook, set the hook, take a fish of the hook, hold a fish for a picture, keep moving when not catching fish, how to identify the fish they caught, how to release a fish and more.  Youth caught largemouth bass, pumpkinseed, perch and these fish gave them a great fight.  Looking around the pond, all you saw was rods bending, smiles, and parents taking pictures of their sons or daughters catch!!

.

Thanks to the Badger Sportsman magazine for providing dinner, which included: hot dogs, chips, watermelon, chocolate chip cookies and drinks.  Youth were really hungry from catching all the fish.  After dinner the youth learned that thy would be keeping the Shakespeare Fishing combo that they were fishing with.  They were excited!!!
