Any angler will tell you that finding that perfect spot can be a tricky process and without finding it you are doomed to head home without any catches. The Fishing Spots app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone is meant to take the hassle out of finding a good spot.
Think of this app as your fishing companion that can provide you with a bevy of information and help. Use this app to get your current weather and a detailed forecast, check out the fish identification charts, view the best fishing times for your current location and others, and even check out a tide chart.
All of this information can obviously help you out as you try to catch the perfect fish. What’s great is that you can use it to plan your outing in advance or you can use it while out on the waters.
This app is free to download and use but some of the features/tools aren't available in the free version. To upgrade to the full version it is just $2.99.
What I enjoy about this app is not just the information it provides but the social aspect it offers. You can post pictures of your catches along with the location, comment and then rate other people's catches, add fishing spots so others can discover them, and even chat privately with other users.
The Discussion Forums are a must-visit area of the app as this is ideal for chatting about tips, advice, trading information, and just sharing your passion with others. The app offers stocking schedules for the majority of the U.S.
This app gets some pretty high ratings and there are plenty of glowing reviews about it. Users seem to love the information it provides and the fact that it truly helps you find some great fishing spots.
There seems to be a couple minor bugs that are popping up with the app, which don't seem to be affecting the app too greatly. The app is also extremely simple to use, which means it's possible to find the information you want and need even while on the go.
