With GoFree Hooked, our new free fishing app, you can use your smart-phone to log fish-catch details and photos, compete in live-leaderboard tournaments, and populate your Insight Genesis maps with pins marking the locations of the fish you catch — whether you hooked ‘em in your boat, a buddy’s boat, or from shore. What’s more, those pins can be exported later for use in a compatible sonar/GPS unit on the water.

GoFree Hooked creates the first of many planned integrations between maps and apps for the Lowrance and Simrad communities. With this app in hand, not only can you compete against your friends and other fishermen in private and public tournaments, you can also improve your future fishing results by logging catch details and learning why you caught fish where you did.

“From the easy to use interface, to the fun competition feature, the GoFree Hooked app gives anglers the ability to challenge their friends or even challenge others around the world,” said Leif Ottosson, CEO, Navico. “You can decide whether to share your success or keep it private. However you use the app, it is a useful tool to help keep a record of your catches and analyze the results to improve your fishing.”
