Use GPS Waypoints to Accurately Cast to Bass

If you’re an offshore angler, chances are you’re well-familiarized with your fish finder’s GPS system. Accurate lake maps coupled with the ability to mark fish location and key structure/cover with GPS waypoints has revolutionized how we find fish.

Professional angler and electronics expert Josh Douglas walks us through his process of finding and marking fish. The next step is to make accurate casts directly to the fish — Josh’s method for this is backing off the spot and pointing his real-time heading extension at the target waypoint(s). The heading extension gives you an accurate lineup for dropping your bait in their face. Josh relies on the Lowrance Point-1 Antenna for accurate and fast boat position and heading updates.
