The Florida Sportsman Fish Chip



Catch more fish with the Florida Sportsman Fish Chip.

Make your GPS a Fish Finder…instantly with the Florida Sportsman Fish Chip. The Chips fit most major brands and are easy to install. Load over 275 hot spots, Inshore and Offshore, per region into your GPS that include proven fish catching spots inshore and the flats as well as artificial reefs, ledges and hard bottom offshore.


“There’s nothing like having a little local knowledge when you go to a new area, or even to help find new spots near your home. Many times simply having likely fishing spots pointed out to you is all you need to help you find others, that have similar characteristics. For each region we worked with three to five local experts to give us proven fish catching spots,” said Blair Wickstrom—Publisher of Florida Sportsman Magazine.

Not venturing offshore? Plug in the Florida Sportsman Fish Chip and hook your GPS up with proven inshore hot spots that hold redfish, trout, snook, flounder, and other inshore rod benders.

  • Scott

    Great Idea, it would take me years to accumulate that many numbers

  • jack

    is the chip compatible with furuno navnet

  • lee

    Does east central cover Melbourne rockledge and merritt Island.

    • FLSportsman

      Lee, yes, the East Central FS Fish Chip will cover those area's.

  • joe

    will this interfere with ability to see shoals and flats when navigating shallow areas
    i use chartplotter to navigate around shallows in the keys and can i delete from chart plotter
    i have a garmin 4000

    • FLSportsman

      The waypoints on our chips will not interfere with your mapping program. Also, yes you may delete the waypoints from your chartplotter if you choose.

  • Jason

    Beware that in the above GPS Brands and Chips Required that they raymarine e-series is only for the e-series wide or the new e-series models since it is stating that the e-series requires a SD/Micro. This is not the case if you have a e-series classic model that takes a CF.

    Furthermore the Raymarine C-series is only for the C-series classic and C-series W models since the new c-series models actually take a sd/micro card.

    Hope this helps someone from buying the incorrect card.

  • Andrew

  • Hookupandgo

    How far South of Sebastian does the East Central chip cover? For those of us that fish out of Sebastian — and I think there are a few, the division line really is dead center of all of the areas fished. Is there a discount for 2 adjacent regions?
