Abstract/Description

Title: Fishing With Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

Author: Lance Freeman

Mentor: Dr. Haluk Cetin

This study was conducted to utilize multiple geographic information systems (GIS) applications for specific parts of Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley. Using Lowrance Insight Genesis, along with topographical maps to help utilize time on the water keeping fisherman in the areas they want to target for specific types of cover and structure to help catch what they are after. Most of this information had to come from typical seasonal patterns and research into a lakes history as to how it was made, along with what is typical habitat for the area, such as specific types of grasses or mussel shell beds. Thanks to the use of side scan by Lowrance I have been able to map out areas that I can specifically go to and make nearly pinpoint casts to the most productive areas. A lot of overlay via historicareals.com to see where things are, such as original creek banks, fence rows, roadbeds, and things that could still create habitat and hold fish.
