New Fishing Maps Available Online

Fishing just got a little easier — well, finding fishing holes just got a little easier now that the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has added a map of nearly 550 fish attractors placed in 50 of the most popular lakes, reservoirs and lakes throughout the state.
Complementing the fish attractor map are GPS coordinates, which anglers can import using a text file, an Excel file or a GPX (GPS Exchange Format) file.
If you’re using a smartphone, tablet or other mobile device, you can access the map using the agency’s new mobile website. Just tap the “Fish Attractors” icon on the Maps tab.
The Commission added another map to its mobile website for anglers who are fishing along the coast and want to know if they’re fishing in joint or coastal waters. The Coastal/Joint Waters Map also is located under the Maps tab on the mobile website.
Check out both maps here.
