Are these contour lines representative of high tides?

I used the One-Foot Contours at Lake Toho last week in Kissimmee. It made a great difference, since the Lake water level had been lowered, and weeds were covering all of the shallow areas. I am glad that it is also on some freshwater lakes.

After watching this video yesterday and seeing the benefit of the 1 foot contour line, I immediately signed up to become a member so I could access this app It will indeed be a game changer in many situations. Thanks for making this helpful tool available. Paul

I’ve read contour lines from various apps for years and unless I’m somehow reading these very wrong, they are way off for my fishing areas which is the lower Laguna Madre around South Padre island. They show water depths of 5 to 15 feet of water where the water is more like 1 to 3 feet max depending on tide status. Not sure why such a difference, but this seems to be an issue.

I can’t post a picture of what I am talking about but would be glad to do so if I could. Thanks.

by the way…. Love the app and all the work you guys do, please don’t get me wrong that I don’t think what you guys are doing is fantastic and far better than i could have ever experienced or expected. Love you work guys and will continue to be a life time member. thanks!!!!

Luke, I see your point on the deepest docks. But how do you select targeting deeper water spots from shallow spots with nearly identical depths like found around many mangrove areas. Not talking about cold and hot weather when fish move to deeper water. Just average days when you and the coaches are fishing and catching fish in the shallows with no attempt to fish deep water or docks. Are you saying to target the deepest mangrove points? I’m guessing but I think you may be saying to select spots based on finding structure of any kind that’s nearest to the deepest water. By example, grass flats with 4 ft. of water should be better than in 2 ft. depths, and even better if having a deep hole. Clearly more opportunities to create more teaching lessons.

Given this GAME CHANGING technology, why not create a contour depth spot identifier which would use algorithms to focus on the optimum conditions, and then create the equivalent of a smart spot for them? These pre-game changers are seemingly not reflecting what you now believe are better spots.

To make sure I’m reading the contours correctly, every line represents an additional 1’ of water? So a spot on the map w/ 6 lines equals 6 feet deep?

From what I can see when the map was zoomed in in the video, every line represents 0.5ft

Nicely done, better resolution than my Navionics map. But are these maps downloadable so that I can use them offline?

Luke, Thanks for the reminders on finding the 90/10 zones. I’ve been trying to short cut the process and only target the yellow and red hot spot zones. Needless to say I’ve been pretty frustrated with this method. Why aren’t the spots that you have shown indicated by the hot spot indicator? Just curious.

I spent all day fishing the red and yellow zones with every lure I’ve ordered and guess what??? Not one f…… fish in the Boat. Live shrimp put dinner on the table. At least where I fish in Mobile Alabama. Good luck. They need to bring all this knowledge to Mobile and have our chapter witness this catching phenomenon.
