Catchbook Fishing App: Photo of the Day

"First Day of Trout Season"

Check out Catchbook user MikeG's 24-inch Palomino trout, caught in Lehigh County, PA during last year's trout season opener (3/31/2012). The best Catchbook photo uploaded in April wins a new Ocean Kayak Trident 11 (see below).

Weather Data For This Catch: 100 percent cloud cover; Rain; Temperature: 44 degrees; Barometric pressure: 29.77 inches and falling; Winds: ENE at 9 mph.


Think of it as essential fishing tackle‚ something that will help you catch more fish right away, and help you become a better fisherman in the future. It's our Catchbook fishing app for iPhone, and there's no easier way to start tracking your catches than with this photo-based collaborative fishing journal.

All you need to do is take a snapshot of each fish you catch. The app automatically records the date, time, and weather conditions, and plots your location so you can pattern your spots all season. Take a moment to add in the size and color of the lure you were using, and you have a rich journal entry. You and your friends can share data, too. Other users across the country have already banked 13,000 catches, and you can view photos of those fish in the app's public feed. Or filter your friends' catches to look for patterns in which fish are caught, or which baits work best, under different weather conditions and at various times of year. The more friends you have, the more catches you see, and the sooner you'll know how to effectively find fish in your waters.

Need more convincing? The editors regularly round up the best Catchbook photos, feature them online or in the magazine, and award cool prizes, like the Ocean Kayak Trident 11 fishing kayak above, which we're giving away to whoever posts our favorite shot to the app in April.

I love to see the youth today get involved in the outdoors. It helps when they catch a monster trout. I wish everyone the best of luck this year during the trout opener!

This is wrong that it is not available for Android and smartphone users. It's just not fair in any sense!
