2 Reasons You Should Consider Custom Mapping Rivers

Wired2Fish’s Ryan DeChaine loves high-quality mapping for finding fish and safe navigation, but accurate maps don’t exist on all waters. Excluding popular reservoir systems, many rivers go uncharted, yet mapping is equally powerful on these types of fisheries.

Modern fishfinders like the Humminbird HELIX featured in this video have built-in custom mapping capabilities that allow you to build accurate maps on the fly – either intentionally surveying, moving between spots or just floating downstream. Having an accurate river map enhances navigational safety while helping you construct a solid fishing strategy for the day.
