How do I update my calendar?

    Updating your calendar lets customers see and book the dates that you are available. For any trip you have outside of FishingBooker, or any other date you may be unavailable, we suggest you update your calendar to reflect that you cannot accept customers, and to reduce the possibility of declining bookings. 

    You can block certain trips (such as half days), full days, or multiple days to reflect your availability. 

    To block a full day, follow these steps:

    1. Go to your Calendar.
    2. If you have only one listing, you will see your calendar. If you have multiple listings, choose the listing you wish to update from the drop-down menu. This will take you to your calendar. 
    3. Double-click the date you wish to edit.
    4. Click Available/Blocked to indicate whether you are free on the date or not.
    5. Click Save.

    To block multiple days, follow these steps:

    1. Follow steps 1 and 2.
    2. Single-click the first date you would like to block and then click the last date you would like to block.
      • You'll have to select full days, and will not be able to block out specific trips over others.
    3. Click Save

    To block part of a day, follow these steps:

    1. Follow steps 1–3.
    2. Click Custom. 
    3. Select Blocked for the trips you're unavailable for.
    4. Click Save.

    Please note that in the event that you have a full day trip available too, this will still be available to book. You should, therefore, block all trips which you cannot run.

    You can update calendars for several listings at once using our Multicalendar feature. This is only available when you access FishingBooker from your computer.


    Please note, you can also manage your advance notice and booking window, as well as the Instant Book feature, in the Availability section. To find out more about the feature, check out this article
