Would You Download a Fishing App?

By Tim Romano

Imagine you're driving to your favorite river for a day of float fishing. It's an hour and a half drive from your home. It's spring and the weather and water flows (CFS) are temperamental. The problem is you forgot to check the conditions before you left. In the past you would have kept driving and crossed your fingers.

Now, there's an App for that. All you have to do is pull out your Iphone, and viola realtime data at your fingertips. At last count there were close to 360 fishing applications over at the Apple "App" store. Granted, most of these are simply games, but many others compile real time data helping you decide where to fish, what to fish for and the best way to do it. There's information from tidal buoy's, gaging stations, and weather stations. Forgot how to tie a surgeons loop? There's an app for that. Curious about matching a hatch on a specific river? There's an app for that.

The point is, there's a wealth of data for fishing situations one button push away. Never before have you had the ability on the water to have so much powerful info in your pocket.

I'm curious, are you using smartphone apps for fishing? If so what do you like or dislike?  What kind of features are helpful or just superfluous?

If I had a smartphone I probably would use it if it put me into more fish. If a guy could plug in the lake/reservoir/river he was fishing, temperature, species, etc. and provide hot spots where historically these fish may be and at what depth I'd be interested.

I'm old enough to remember when "fish finders" where new to the industry. I remember the fierce debate that ensued between anglers. Some thought it was the best invention since sliced bread while folks on the other side of the fence had utter disdain for those electronics. Now, you cannot hardly find a boat without a fish finder.

I have an Iphone and do use apps for fishing purposes. Weather channel app give weather anywhere, and live radar, I have a few river flows bookmarked on the USGS website, I have a tide app that tells the tides anywhere in the US, and sunset and sunrise (shooting hours). And I a TOPO map that is probably my favorite, I can download any topomap grid from US and Canada for free to my phone and the GPS on my phone will show me where I am on the map. All these things are things that can be checked before I leave the house but its nice to have it at your finger tips. And the TOPO maps app has saved me some time and dough.

Years ago, if you told me you used a GPS to get around; I’d probably would have called a Girly Man! Since then, I became wiser and my Father was giving hell to show him on the map where I would be at, that’s a Father who cares! Since then I’ve purchased two types of units I carry now regardless where I go and if not there in the truck. The first one is the Lowrance iFINDER® Hunt™ C Handheld GPS and the second is the “SPOT” “Emergency Positioning Locator Beacon” known to me years ago as “EPRB” and I’m sure they have changed the name to a much more fancier name. For years afield, I relied on my TOPO Maps and compass and yes it’s always in my pack a GI issue Model. But when I started using my Lowrance iFINDER® Hunt™ C Handheld GPS with the downloaded maps, I didn’t relies all the information I had at my figure tips I didn’t have another way. Places I’ve been all my life and been so close or passed right through a historical place, school house or cemetery which been there since Adam and Eve. As for my “SPOT”, don’t need to tell the Wife or anyone except I’m going out and be back at O’Dark Thirty! Jumps online and tracks my every movement and where I’ve been and if I’m headed home. If I need emergency help, press the HELP or 911 buttons and the Calvary is on its way!

So what’s my bottom line?

Ya ‘sure, all this WIZZ’BANG electronically gadgetry takes a lot of guess work out of getting there and back in one piece and what your best choices are. But the real truth to the BOTTOM LINE, you still must have the skill to make it all happen!

I've got mixed feelings--I love the old school low tech stuff--I started scuba diving before most of today's "absolutly necessary" safety equipment was even invented. But sometimes the technology comes in handy. One night we took shelter in the truck to wait out a nasty storm that interrupted our gator hunt. One of the young guys picked up the satellite signal on his fancy high tech whatchamajigger thingy & showed me the line of thunderstorms behind the one we were enjoying at the time. We called it a night & went home to a beer & a warm bed instead of sitting in the truck all night like idiots.

Late last season a friend changed plans mid-stream (a pun!) and called me on his way to a different river - asked me to check the conditions on-line. He now has an iPhone He might not call me for conditions anymore, though he probably will, to bug me for being stuck in the office. There is probably an app for that, too.

No matter how much info you have before getting to the river, especially with flyfishing, it's still fishing. Conditions change quickly - rain and lightning swing in, clouds clear up, hatches and runs start and stop, trout key in on another bug. You have to be there to know for sure. There's just no guarantee.

I only have the ipod touch so I can only get online via wifi. However, if I had 3G I would use many apps outside of school buildings (if there was service). Most places I have gone hunting you are not going to get cell phone service. Fishing well depends where you are. Anyone who does use a smart phone while fishing should get a waterproof case. I have one for my ipod it is an otterbox. It is bulky but I can still use the touch screen with it.

Speaking of scuba diving and technology. A fella went on vacation down in the Bahamas and his brand new high tech dive computer went TANGO UNIFORM! He filed a law suet against the company saying it ruined his vacation and wanted restitution and of course he lost hands down. Why? As a certified diver, he should have been able to use a capillary gauge and figure out his dives and bottom time using a certified dive chart that is readily available in any dive shop world wide!

My point?

Technology vs skill cuts both ways!

I have an iPhone and use FishHead, which gives me real-time weather, water flow, water level sunrise/sunset/moonphase for locations I pre-determined (USGS level monitoring stations). It can also do tide information for saltwater fishermen.

I also use Bento, a database app that synchronizes with Bento on Macintosh. I created a basic fishing journal where I record weather and water data and the basics of what I caught and on what. The information can be recorded on the Bento app on my iPhone and then sync it on my home computer.

The idea, of course, is that I can track fishing results by time of day, weather, moon phase, fly, water conditions, etc. The reality is that I end up fishing and forgetting to record the stuff most of the time.

FisheHead is still a good app for having a central report of the stuff fishermen care about (except for what they're eating). It's a litle slow to load, though, because it loads info for every pre-saved location every time you launch it. 5 or 6 locations is OK, more than 10 and it's gets pretty slow.

For Android
I have downloaded the Orvis app. As a novice I find it very useful in reminding me how to tie knots, how to match a hatch, what fly to use under various conditions when there is no current hatch (AZ is notable for that) multiple podcasts on a variety of subjects can be loaded. Extensive library on every fly you can imagine and the uses, and hatch it matches. The cost was $15 and you get a $10 Orvis gift certificate.

The economy of our great country might be on the path lace prom dresses of recovery; however, financial normalcy is still a distant dream for the average Joe.

He now has an iPhone He might not call me for conditions anymore, though he probably will, to bug me for being stuck in the office. There is probably an app for that, too.

No matter how much info you have before getting to the river, especially with flyfishing, it's still fishing. Conditions change quickly - rain and lightning swing in, clouds clear up, hatches and runs start and stop, trout key in on another bug. You have to be there to know for sure. There's just no guarantee.

I only have the ipod touch so I can only get online via wifi. However, if I had 3G I would use many apps outside of school buildings (if there was service). Most places I have gone hunting you are not going to get cell phone service. Fishing well depends where you are. Anyone who does use a smart phone while fishing should get a waterproof case. I have one for my ipod it is an otterbox. It is bulky but I can still use the touch screen with it.

Ever since the original homesteaders moved across this country for free land after the civil war, The barbed wire fence was very cheap and it became more and more popular. Support wire mesh fence posts could be placed in the ground every 10 to 20 feet and then the wire attached to the wire mesh fence posts.

Clay, I agree. I still keep a dive table in my dive bag just in case. You shouldn't have to stay in the boat just because your computer malfunctions.

I have an iPhone and use FishHead, which gives me real-time weather, water flow, water level sunrise/sunset/moonphase for locations I pre-determined (USGS level monitoring stations). It can also do tide information for saltwater fishermen.

I also use Bento, a database app that synchronizes with Bento on Macintosh. I created a basic fishing journal where I record weather and water data and the basics of what I caught and on what. The information can be recorded on the Bento app on my iPhone and then sync it on my home computer.

The idea, of course, is that I can track fishing results by time of day, weather, moon phase, fly, water conditions, etc. The reality is that I end up fishing and forgetting to record the stuff most of the time.

FisheHead is still a good app for having a central report of the stuff fishermen care about (except for what they're eating). It's a litle slow to load, though, because it loads info for every pre-saved location every time you launch it. 5 or 6 locations is OK, more than 10 and it's gets pretty slow.

It's no surprise that technology is going to try and improve everything. I've seen a few fish apps for my iPhone, none really worth anything. I find the best information in books, REAL books and well, actually being on the water.

FishNotes by Jimmy Houston is pretty kewl. I can save all my fishing information and create instant fishing reports for my friends while on the water. It shows me the best fishing times, moon phases and it even shows me where other people have caught fish. Very awesome IMO.

As an avid fly fisher I have produced a very helpful knot tying wallet sized booklet showing all the knots you will need from the reel to the hook.

These have been recreated as an iPhone app.
I have had many very positive reactions from the users..

For Android
I have downloaded the Orvis app. As a novice I find it very useful in reminding me how to tie knots, how to match a hatch, what fly to use under various conditions when there is no current hatch (AZ is notable for that) multiple podcasts on a variety of subjects can be loaded. Extensive library on every fly you can imagine and the uses, and hatch it matches. The cost was $15 and you get a $10 Orvis gift certificate.

I own an Android phone and am constantly searching for a great fishing app. There's a couple out there already, but none that were that great and easy to use.

I just came across a new app called My Fishing Companion, and it looks like it's going to be perfect. Will have to try it out on the water, but it looks to have great potential.

The economy of our great country might be on the path lace prom dresses of recovery; however, financial normalcy is still a distant dream for the average Joe.

In contrast, if we talk about the online marketplace, the scenario is entirely different.
