This month, navigating to and from your listings just got easier – as did analyzing their performance on FishingBooker. We’re also excited to introduce state and federal license markers on listings in the Gulf of Mexico and Florida.

A New Look for Your Listings Dashboard
It’s now much easier to use your listings dashboard. As well as looking sleeker, it now gives you valuable information about each listing: how many times it’s been booked, whether Instant Book is enabled, when the calendar was last updated, and more.
Here’s what’s new:
See at a glance whether your listing is published, unpublished, or snoozed
It used to be hard to tell which of your listings were visible to customers. Now, this has changed. Whether you’re looking at your dashboard from your cell phone or the computer, you can see your listing’s status at a glance.
Better navigation to the pages you need
Access the dashboard from the computer, and you’ll have links to everything you need, all in one place. Whether you want to preview how customers see your listing, edit it, or update its calendar, everything’s there! This makes managing your business much easier.
On your phone, you’ll be able to see a list of “cards” representing each of your listings. Click anywhere on a listing card, and you’ll reach the page to edit it.
Compare listings directly from your phone
It’s now much easier to see how your different listings are doing in comparison to each other. This can help you decide which location or boat you want to promote or allocate more time to.
There’s also a new marker showing which of your listings have Instant Book.
Accessing your listing dashboard
Accessing your listings is easy when you’re logged into the FishingBooker website. Just go to the “Business” section and click on “Listings.”
When you’re logged in, you can also reach your dashboard via THIS LINK.
A New Way to Display Licenses in US Gulf of Mexico Waters
There’s been a moratorium on issuing new federal waters fishing licenses in the Gulf of Mexico for several years now. This means there’s a limited number of charter operators who are legally allowed to take customers over 9 miles offshore, out of state waters.
We want to grow our customers’ awareness of licensing and believe they should know whether their charter is properly permitted to take them fishing offshore, or not.
We’re testing showing this information on listings to a subset of our users. You may see this on your listing if you’re in the Gulf of Mexico or Florida.
If you would like to talk about how your listings’ licensing is displayed or would like more information about verification, feel free to get in touch.
New Tips for Managing Your Listing
Go to edit your listing, and you’ll see there’s a new wizard designed to help you better understand how the various sections work. This appears in three sections: Photos & Videos, Terms, and Location.
Get these tips on the go by clicking on the lightbulb icon on the right of your screen when editing these parts of your listing.
In the Pipeline
You know how you can’t edit your listing directly in the My Trips app? This will change soon. Keep an eye out for our update and walkthrough of the new process, which will make it easier for you to update your packages and other details at the click of a button.
We’re also reworking the way you add fishing reports on the app, to make it easier and more efficient.
Finally, we’re updating the way canceling bookings works, making the whole process more transparent and keeping you aware of how different types of cancellations affect your listing.
