Planning to fish a new waterway and need some fishing 411 on the best spots? Or just want to brag online about your big catch? If the answer is “yes” to either of these questions, then you have to check out this map-based social media network called Fishidy.com.
Fishidy.com was founded by hardcore anglers who love fishing, maps and technology. It’s a one-of-a-kind fishing resource to give anglers (from beginners to pros) valuable 411 on thousands of waterways across the country — freshwater and saltwater.
The Fishidy mobile app allows you to see waterway info, layered maps and catches while you are on the go or on the water.
You’ll get access to helpful layered maps, have a captive audience for bragging about your catches, and, if you’re feeling generous, be able to share tips and tricks. You can mark that “snook hotel” you recently discovered or share a photo of the monster you caught there. On the mobile app, the posting follows whatever your default sharing settings are from the website which you can change under “Privacy & Settings.”
With a premium membership, you’ll be able to:
- Customize and print your own fishing maps
- See water surface temperatures
- See over 100,000,000 structures like weed beds, fish cribs, pilings, and downed timber
- Get GPS coordinates for over 100,000 proven marked fishing areas with targeted tips and techniques
A Fishidy premium membership is $9.99 per month or $49.99 for a year. There’s also a six-month membership option for $29.99.
Fishing and boating-related businesses will love being able to share information based on their location as well. For $150 per year, your business location will be featured on the waterway map of your choice. Fishidy users will see your place of business alongside marked fishing areas, depth contours, detailed shorelines, structure, landings, marinas, flooded timber, weed beds and more. You can create a linked business page share information, news, specials, promotions. These features are great for Fishidy users when you are on unfamiliar waters and need more bait, fuel, or lunch.
