About Fishidy

Fishidy was founded by hardcore anglers who love fishing, maps and technology. We came together with a common vision to create a one-of-a-kind fishing resource to give anglers of all kinds the chance to catch more fish through the use of interactive fishing maps, social connections and tons of proven, valuable information on thousands of waterways across the country.

Fishidy is owned and operated by Outdoor InSite, LLC. The creators, owners and operators of the Fishidy technology platform live and work throughout the U.S. We’re freshwater, saltwater and fly fishing anglers ourselves. We love and appreciate the outdoors and we’re always looking for ways to enhance the outdoor experience through innovation, intelligence and technology.

Brian Jensen
President

Brian is the president and co-founder of Fishidy. A discouraging fishing trip long ago sparked the idea that there needed to be a better way to deliver fishing-related data to the everyday angler. Brian's experience in GIS and mapping technology, along with his entrepreneurial spirit drove the concept of what today is known as Fishidy! He continues to personally connect with Fishidy members on a daily basis and develop new ways to make Fishidy the most valuable and fun online platform for anglers. If Brian isn't in the office, he's spending time with his wife and two children, or fishing on Madison's chain of lakes for muskie, smallies or the occasional walleye. Brian is also a lifelong Green Bay Packers fan and official shareholder.

Digital Marketing Manager

Jon is Fishidy's digital marketing guru involved in all things web, search and social media. His passion for fishing and the outdoors started at a young age slinging worms baited under a bobber for hungry bluegill. Today, he fishes for a variety of freshwater species throughout the Midwest and is just beginning to get into fly fishing. He and his wife originally from the Chicagoland area now call Madison, WI, home and are enjoying their time taking in the local sights, sounds and culture. Jon will remain a Chicago Bears fan.
