Catchbook Contest: The 50 Best Photos of September 2012 (PLUS: How to Win an iPhone 5!)

Field & Stream's Catchbook app for the iPhone is a social fishing journal that automatically turns your photos of fish into catch records complete with detailed weather conditions, then lets you share that information on a map with fishing buddies you trust. The map is private, but the photos of your fish are public, which means everyone can see what all Catchbook users are landing around the country (and around the world!). Since we launched the app in April, more than 6,300 people have installed it on their phones and have posted thousands of photos. The 50 shots in this gallery are our editors' picks for the best ones uploaded last month (Sept. 2012). User: **salmonhero - Canada ** Date and Time: Friday, September 7, 2012 - 06:28
