For most boaters with lots of time on the water, SiriusXM Marine started as a great way to listen to your favorite fishing and cruising tunes while on the water out of normal radio range. Being commercial-free was also a huge benefit. As marine electronics evolved at a lightning pace, SiriusXM was piped into many capable MFD’s for a complete user experience. Then SiriusXM Marine Weather became a huge benefit to those who needed to know what’s coming over the horizon. Now that same satellite technology can bring more valuable information to your fingertips over 150 nautical miles offshore: SiriusXM Marine Fish Mapping!
What is Fish Mapping? I’m glad you asked. SiriusXM works with a team of oceanographers who take all of the data available to them and crunch the numbers into proven software that predicts the likely areas where baitfish and gamefish will congregate.
Fish Mapping provides regularly updated, science-based data to help you locate fish faster – saving both time and fuel. Fishing features include Fishing Recommendations to find specific game fish, Weed Lines, Sea Surface Temperatures and Ocean Front Strengths, Sub Surface Sea Temperatures, Sea Surface Height Anomaly, and Plankton Front Strengths and Concentration data. It also provides essential weather information such as Radar, Lightning, Marine Zone Forecasts, Wind and Wave information.
Fish Mapping is a subscription service and is currently available on Furuno, Simrad, and Garmin MFD’s with the proper hardware installed.
Fish Mapping service is $99.99/mo. Fish Mapping subscribers can add SiriusXM entertainment at a discount. The All Access programming package is SiriusXM’s most extensive offering and includes Howard Stern, every NFL, MLB®, and NBA game, every NASCAR® race, plus NHL® games, PGA TOUR® coverage and live college sports, as well as SiriusXM’s wide variety of ad-free music, plus talk programming, comedy, and several exclusive online-only channels.
