Home Port Fishing, Diving, and Lobster Charts
Home Port Charts are unique fishing charts because they feature the bathymetric data of the areas they cover. Bathymetry is the mapping of the ocean bottom, detailing ledges, reefs, canyons, and other bottom structures. Fish are known to like structure, as well as ocean currents, and an array of water temperatures individual to each species.
For the angler, Home Port Chart’s bathymetric data provides a tremendous advantage. The color coded Home Port Charts are easy to read. Structures are well outlined, and are easy to identify. Each Home Port Chart model comes with a list of known local fishing hot spots. The bathymetric data on each chart allows the angler to identify GPS coordinates of additional structures not located on the known locations. This provides the angler an indefinite number of fishing locations and areas to fish.
Underwater hills, drop offs, and canyons, provide the necessary obstacles to create ocean currents to flow upward when normal current flows flow into these structures. Such changes in current flows are called “upwellings”, which are identified on satellite imagery as altimetry. These upwellings typically have different temperatures, thereby causing eddies, and temperature breaks on the surface. It is this information that many anglers seek when they purchase SST Maps when going on fishing trips. Home Port Charts bathymetric data will facilitate this process for the user.
Home Port Charts primarily cover the eastern coast of the USA, featuring bathymetric fishing charts and maps with GPS coordinates, ocean bottom details, and a list of local fishing hot spots for each area. Anglers use Home Port Charts to locate areas for catching Tuna, Swordfish, and for Deep Dropping for bottom species such as Tilefish, Snapper, Grouper, and other bottom dwelling species. In addition, Home Port Charts has a complete selection of King Mackerel Kingfish Tournament Charts for anglers who fish SKA and FLW fishing tournaments.
Home Port Charts are an excellent choice for those looking for SCUBA Diving, Spear Fishing locations, as well as areas for catching the tasty Florida Lobster.
