Habitat structure/waypoints gpx catalog
« on: Nov 08, 2018, 12:04 PM »
The Iowa DNR has created a catalog of "habitat structure" that you can download as gpx and integrate into your mapping software. This has proven handy for me as I have been using the Fish Smart app and it puts all the DNR known structure into all the lake maps for you.
Do any of you know if your state have something similar thats available? I looked into Wisconsin and Minnesota and could only find POI trail waypoints and WIA (walk in access) for hunting available...

Thanks for your thoughts and help!

Ha, our state “lake maps” are decades old and just have depth readings they took in a grid pattern. Our state def doesn’t do as much as others when it comes to promoting a fishery, other than creel limits numbers or lack there of for some species in some locations.
