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:
- Be sure you've updated your GoWild app to the newest version.
- Tap the plus sign at the bottom of the screen.

Tracking outdoor activities is incredibly fun and rewarding. You already knew you worked hard—you could feel the burn. But how cool is it to know you also climbed 2,100 feet of elevation, your max heart rate was 183, max ambient air temperature was 84º, your average cadence was 37 strides per minute and the total distance was 8.1 miles?
When thinking of how to prepare wild game I often think of the iconic scene from Forrest Gump where Bubba is explaining all the methods to prepare shrimp… fried shrimp, shrimp kabobs, shrimp gumbo, etc. Venison and most game meats are highly versatile, and are consumed in countless dishes and cuisines from around the world. You may now be thinking, “Fried deer, elk burgers, goose kabobs”… the list goes on forever. Each wild meal I prepare is a chance to extract the most out of whatever cut of meat I am preparing, combining those rich flavors with quality, seasonal ingredients to create a mouthwatering and delicious meal for my family and friends.
2020 has been a year of uncertainty, but one thing remains true: Dad’s are awesome.And if your old man ever deserved a patriarchal offering, it’s amid a pandemic. Who else can break the tension of quarantine with a one-liner better than the old man himself? No one, that’s who. Here are my suggestions for the old man, as it relates to hunting, fishing and that grand ol’ dad hobby, barbecuing.
