Wind Direction

Wind direction and magnitude is among the most important weather condition an angler will consider.  FISHBUOY now incorporates a surface wind map layer to help you make informed decisions about wind that impacts wave height, casting ability, surface light penetration, lake currents and water levels.

Ambient Air Temperature

Everyone needs to know what kinds of temperatures to expect when heading out for just a few hours, a day or week.  FISHBUOY has embedded an air temperature map layer to help you plan your outdoor clothing needs in addition to anticipate how temperatures may impact fishing conditions.

Cloud Cover

Fish do not have eyelids and as such, use underwater cover to hide from the sun.  On overcast days, fish become more active and typically are more easily drawn from cover in less turb water.  Use FISHBUOY's weather features to plan how cloud cover will affect the baits you use.

Fishing Success Index (FSI)Understanding fish biology and predicting how water and weather conditions influence fish activity can be tricky. That's why we invented the Fishing Success Index (FSI). FSI uses a proprietary algorithm to calculate locations meeting the ideal physical and biological conditions that impact your fishing success. This is no voo doo magic or farmers almanc guessing. FSI uses spatial and temporal modeling techniques to produce a probability of success and displays results on a map.
