Experience TheCarpSpot is a new way of finding night fishing spots in France.


We have spent hundreds of hours mapping all night fishing zones in continental France. Our map includes more than 11 000 km of riverbanks, 3000+ km of canals plus 695 lakes, gravel pits and barrages. So whatever type of venue tickles your fancy, we have it covered.

Your favorite spots

You can mark all your spots and attach your own information to them, including photos. You can share them with your mates, or keep them very secret. And if you already have your spots marked in Google Earth or MyMaps, you can import them all in seconds.


When using maps, you can turn on animated weather forecats to see what the future holds. You can also access 15 days of weather forecast for any of your pins. So when the weather is against you, you know where and when to move.


Upload your catch photos, attach them to your pins and build your public profile to showcase your captures or camera skills. Or keep your photos private, if that's what you prefer.
