Tips for Using Fishing Maps
Open the Maps menu and zoom into your fishing area using the touchscreen. Touch on the red fishing area restriction to see a description of the boundaries. On iOS devices, scroll to see gear and species restrictions, or on Android devices, select 'See Restrictions'.
The Tas Fish Guide app will cache map data for areas previously viewed by you on your device. To have access to map data when fishing in areas out of phone reception, view these areas whilst you have coverage, prior to going fishing. Area restriction information will be visible regardless of whether you have reception.
Maps for the iOS version of this app are provided by the
Land Information System Tasmania
