There are literally hundreds, and possibly thousands of fishing apps out there, making it incredibly difficult to figure out which ones are worth trying out.
I’ve gone through most of them and narrowed it down to about 30.
But, before we get to all 30, I’m going to save you even more time and show you my favorites.
My Top 5 Fishing Apps for the Avid Fisherman
While I’ve used and recommend all the apps listed here, these five below are the ones I’m currently using day to day.
1. Fish Brain
Fish brain is an awesome social networking app that allows anglers to log their catches, post photos, and share their fishing spots with other anglers. It was created to let anglers help and learn from each other by sharing fishing tips and techniques.
BassForecast is a trip planning tool that helps bass anglers maximize their time on the water. This app uses prove facts about bass feeding behavior, along with air and water temperature, to help users decide which days are best to hit the water and when its better to stay at home.
Navionics is an app made with nautical charts that fisherman can use for marking certain GPS waypoints. It comes in handy when anglers don’t have access to an actual depth finder/GPS system with them.
Fishidy is an app made up of fishing maps of thousands of bodies of water. It helps anglers by including boat ramp locations, depth contour lines, and other navigation features. Anglers can also post their fishing pictures on this app and share their fishing knowledge with other anglers.
5. Fish Rules
The Fish Rules app informs anglers on the saltwater fishing regulations in a user-friendly format. It tells anglers how big a certain fish much be to keep, how many of a certain species anglers can keep, and if a certain fish is in season.
