Tracks Feature

The Tracks feature basically is just a way of recording the track you took out on the water that day.

You can then save this data and upload it later on to evaluate the track you took on that trip.

This can be extremely helpful for navigation purposes.

Let’s say you had some luck at a spot during the day but then the next morning when you go fishing at that same spot it is too dark outside to see without navigation help.

You can then upload the track from your last trip and follow that out to the spot.

The same situation can happen to kayak anglers as well.

If you went fishing in areas with winding creeks and it all looks the same without knowing the area, the tracks feature will bring you right to your desired spot without stressing about finding the same spot you were in previously.

Or tracks can help you find your way home amidst the winding creek systems filtering out into lagoons.

Tracks Walk-Through

First, click on the little gear icon in the bottom right corner of Smart Fishing Spots and click on the third icon from the left that looks like two waypoints connected by a red line.

This is the Routes and Tracks tab.

Click on tracks and then click Load tracks.

A drop-down menu will pop up and there you can select previous trips that you have saved.

Then, a purple line will pop up on your screen that indicates the exact track you took on that trip.

Before launching your kayak or vessel, make sure you hit the Record button to record your track on that trip.

Once you get back to the ramp, hit the Stop button and then click Save so your track is saved in Smart Fishing Spots.

Moreover, the best part about this is you can record your track on your phone and come back to look at it on a desktop later without having to do anything different.

When you are logged in and using Smart Fishing Spots as an Insider Member, everything is saved on any connected device you use.

Thought others that are struggling with location services on iPhone might find this useful. Could not find this info elsewhere (maybe I missed it). Under settings -> privacy and security -> location services, make sure safari websites is allowed access. I finally figured it out on my iPhone after ensuring chrome and safari had access, but it is actually “safari websites” that the salt strong web app falls under and needs location access granted.

I enjoy your videos Tony. When you are preplanning a trip, is there a way to mark waypoints to check out on the app?

Will this app run down my cell battery quickly? In a kayak is a portable cell power source needed?
Will it work on Florida freshwater as well?
