Great tool for offshore fishing. RipCharts will put you on the fish easier and save your time and fuel doing it by helping you locate productive water vs fishing “blindly.”
The pictures are always a day late. Yet other company's have shots !!!! Why is this ❓
Straight to the point. That’s why we use it.
I have subscribed to RipCharts for many years now. I love all the different map views and tools. I find it to be very easy to navigate and they keep adding more features for the same price. Highly recommended! SCUBA Steve from Tementos Dive Center, New Orleans La.
This service is really good; the plotter feature is an added bonus.
I watched 3 tutorials and I was sold: that’s what I need! I’m giving you 1 star only for the idea - that’s the only pro - the idea. Cons: Not granular enough for ANYTHING!!! There’s no good resolution on anything even the easy stuff. For fishermen fishing within a 30 Mile radius is useless. Then.... YOU PAY YOU GET SCREWED!!!! CANT GET MY MONEY BACK!!!!
If you fish offshore this app helps narrow down the spot you want to fish. The app pays for itself in fuel savings
If your serious about fishing then this is what you have to have.
Good to figure out before you go, so you spend more time fishing instead of looking.
Love the app but sorry to say doesn't have Hawaii harbors! Still waiting for refund
