Fishidy (Madison) was founded by hardcore anglers who love fishing, maps and technology. They came together with a common vision to create a one-of-a-kind fishing resource to ensure all anglers can create memorable experiences on the water. Fishidy delivers this experience through the usage of interactive fishing maps, social connections and tons of proven, valuable information on thousands of waterways across the country. Fishidy Inc. has nearly 850,000 customers from all 50 states and nearly 30 countries with hundreds of thousands of catches and fishing hot spots from around the world.
In 2017 Fishidy acquired the FishingScout app, adding over 90,000 new members and 200,000 new catch records. Fishidy also introduced key new features like Facebook integration and a new “getting started” feature.
