About Us

Matt Snider

Executive Editor
The concept of Fish Explorer started a few years ago when I got my first boat and couldn't find a list of lakes showing where I could launch it. I wanted to fly fish for wipers and tiger muskie, but couldn't find a map showing which lakes had them. And if I was going to travel hours to get to a lake, I had very few options if any to determine whether the lake was full enough to launch, or warm enough to find active fish.

After gathering data through many phone calls, emails, and meetings, I had the idea to put all this information in one place for everyone. This core concept of mapping lakes, cross-referencing fish species, and maintaining current conditions culminated in what is now FishExplorer.com.

Over the years, with the help of many many people, the website has grown to be a feature-rich, hyper-local recource that is an indispensable tool when exploring the numerous fisheries available to us, enlisting local experts and giving previously unheard voices a chance to share their love of fishing.

I hope you enjoy FishExplorer.com as much as I've enjoyed building it and watching it grow. Remember that our resources are shared among all, and that we all share the responsibility to take care of them.

See you on the water!

I fell in love with the Fish Explorer concept the first time I visited it in 2006, weeks after the website launched. I quickly became a regular, posting conditions reports and answering questions on the forum. I couldn't stand for a question to go unanswered (still canít), so I would often go off and do research to answer questions both for the original poster and myself.

Matt invited me to lunch and asked if I'd be interested in becoming a field editor. Seeing Fish Explorer as a means to further my writing ambitions I accepted. As they say it was all downhill from there. With each passing year I've become more deeply involved with the site, playing various roles in its expansion.

What impresses me most about Fish Explorer isn't the richness of resources we offer in terms of lakes and rivers, event listings, news items, fish species, and blogs. Rather, it's that we provide a platform for members to help each other. Our resources pale in comparison to the depth of knowledge held by tens of thousands anglers that make up our membership.

I am thankful to be part of FishExplorer.com and look forward to seeing it reach its fullest potential in the years to come. I hope you'll join us in this endeavor, as Fish Explorer is truly where anglers help their fellow anglers.
