Every experienced fisherman has a secret location to catch the big ones, but sometimes a map can come in handy, even if you think you know the body of water. This is true whether you're fishing on fresh or salt water. The right map can aid in navigating around a lake, bay or coastal shoreline - plus it can mark ramps, waterways, fishing areas and marinas as well as other significant landmarks.
Today's maps may still be paper, but they're now enhanced for the digital era and can coordinate with GPS devices and smartphones by marking latitude and longitude along with other codes so you can refer to both sources to work together and find the best spots on the water. With the right map you'll be able to navigate with ease even if X doesn't mark the spot!
