Fishing Tracking on GoWild

Fish on! Introducing, fishing activity tracking!

Introducing one of our biggest innovations yet for fishing—fishing activity tracking.  Actively track fishing details for Saltwater, Freshwater, Bow, Ice and Noodlin’.

We are excited to announce we have released the ability to track fishing activity on all of our platforms, including Android, iOS and Garmin's Connect IQ. With this release, you now have the ability to uniquely track over 40 outdoor-specific activities.
Record minute-to-minute distance traveled, elevation, and photos taken. Photos are pinned to an anonymized map, overlaying catches documented with your cell phone’s camera with the activity’s data.
“Anglers want to share their story, but not their spot—so we found a way to do that,” said GoWild Co-Founder and Chief Development Officer, Chris Gleim. “This is the most robust way to document your fishing trip, and get feedback from other anglers, it's a fantastic extension of our platform."
Specifics On This BIG Splash
You can now actively track fishing for Saltwater, Freshwater, Bow, Ice and Noodlin’. Who else gives you Noodlin’ tracking?!
  • Photos and points of interest are pinned to an anonymized map.
  • Track your distance boated or hiked, elevation changes (great for walking a stream when fly fishing or paddling), and temperature!

Also compatible with select Garmin devices:

The GoWild Fish app for Garmin provides additional tracking of air temperature, heart rate and points of interest specific to that type of fishing. When Fly Fishing, you can track water features such as rocks and ledges, whereas an Ice Fisherman could track everything from where they parked to where their shanty was on the lake. All Garmin fishing activities can track catch locations. GoWild has plans to help anglers navigate back to these points in the future. POIs are only shown to the member, not the community.

Update your GoWild app to the newest version and get started today!

As you track time fishing, the app will also begin comparing how much time you put into fishing from within the GoWild community. An upcoming update will help you showcase this on your profile, too.

To Start Tracking:

  1. Be sure you've updated your GoWild app to the newest version.
  2. Tap the plus sign at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Then tap the Activity icon at the top right.
  4. Choose the fishing activity and hit start!

Fishing is the newest of the activities you can track with GoWild. Be sure to check out the others if you haven't yet: Hiking, hunting, shed hunting, archery, walking, running, scouting and shed hunting.

GoWild app and all tracking is free and available for Android, iOS and Garmin. Download today!
