Finding saltwater game fish just got a lot easier. With the new app from FishTrack.com, anglers can research water conditions and marine weather for the world's best offshore fishing locations right from their mobile device and find the best potential spots before leaving the dock.

The FishTrack App provides everything anglers need to find fish, including the latest cloud-free and high-resolution Sea Surface Temperature (SST) charts, Chlorophyll images, Ocean Altimetry, Currents, Bathymetry, Moon Phase and Tides, as well as Buoyweather Marine Forecasts.

“With the FishTrack app, captains and crew can research temperature breaks and find blue water for any offshore location quickly and easily right on their phone,” said Charlie Levine, editor of FishTrack.com. “They can also plot waypoints to determine how far they have to run, and save their coordinates and chart imagery for offline use.”

The FishTrack app is free via iTunes, and provides SST data for the entire globe, including more than 85 of the world’s best saltwater fishing destinations. The FishTrack app is easy to use, and several in-app tutorials will help first-time users navigate their way through the tools offered.

When the user first opens the app and sets their location, the latest cloud-free SST image will display. This chart can be repositioned and zoomed in or out using the same intuitive finger motions smartphone users are accustomed to. As the user moves the chart, updated position coordinates, water temperature and depth readings are displayed at the top of the screen. The user can then access and layer additional imagery using the toolbox on the bottom of the screen. Additional data currently offered includes Chlorophyll Imagery, Hi-Res SST, True Color Images, Sea Surface Height, Currents, Bathymetry, Points of Interest, Marine Forecast by Buoyweather, and Tides/Solunar tables.

“Knowing where you want to go before you leave the dock saves time and fuel,” Levine said. “We bring our phones everywhere and having this info when you jump on a boat is perfect. Pull up the data, punch in the coordinates and away you go.”

With the FishTrack App users can:

- View the most recent SST and Chlorophyl Imagery
- Save Fishing Chart Imagery for Offline Use
- Plot Waypoints and Save Routes
- Overlay Bathymetry, Ocean Currents and Sea Surface Height
- View Marine Weather Forecasts
- View Current Location While Offline
