Fishing apps are a great way to get the most out of your fishing experience. They provide a range of features, from guides on how to tie knots and information about the best platforms and gears, to forecasts of the best fishing times. Fishbrain's fishing forecast feature, for example, will predict the best time for you to go out on the water. The FishAngler app will also give you the current temperature, wind, barometric pressure, moon phase and fish forecast.
If you're a bass fishing coach or captain of a team that participates in tournaments on the Bass Nation circuit, then you'll want to make sure you have an app that can help you get the most out of your time on the water. The Deeper app is a great choice for any angler as it provides important information such as water temperature, depths, bottom composition, fish location, climate and more. Most apps that require a paid subscription will give you access to some features. The moon can have an effect on the tide, so it's useful to have an app that takes this into account when you're saltwater fishing.
GPS hotspot locations are also helpful as they let you know exactly where to go and how to get there. If you're an avid tournament fisher who spends every month in the water, then it's worth considering an annual subscription to the app. We recommend downloading the app and seeing what features are available in the free version. The Fishidy fishing app is free to download and provides anglers with real-time information on recent catches in waterways near them.
The premium version gives access to additional features such as offline maps when there's no internet connection, information about depth and bottom composition (mud, rock or sand), submerged vegetation, submerged structures and critical fishing points with GPS coordinates.
