Phone Apps...?

Recommended Posts

Be prepared before you go.  The only phone app I use is for the stock market or a news feed.

My thought for a phone app?  Shut it off...stick it in the glove box....fish.

Weather Bug or some other weather app. They aren't fishing apps, but definitely will come in handy while on the water.

For me, as a frequent river/stream wader, I have an app called RiverCast that allows you to look at river stage height for locations the USGS has such stations set up. By default it shows you the flood stages and such, but since you can create custom assigned stage levels, mine has levels such as "Too High for Wading" stage, and "Very Shallow to Wade" stage, and my favorite "Go Fishin!" stage. 

 

It's very helpful and provides stage information in a graph form every few hours. Check it out.

 

I also use an app that gives me the exact sunrise and sunset times. I like to know when to start fishing and have enough time.

 

Other than that, I use the weather....particularly Dark Sky since it will push rain/precipitation notifications to you that are freakily accurate.

Scout look fishing weather, it gives you all your solunar details. It even has an awesome fish log where you snap a pic of the fish and it will automatically fill in location, time, date and solunar details.

The forcast a part of my inhome prep work for target species and headed location,gives me an idea of what to expect.  On the big water rough weather can be seen probably 50 miles, can go around it or come in, make sure I'm not but a few mile offshore.   Weather danger is my biggest concern.  Fishing wise, I've decided on the tackle for day before I head out.  The phone is pretty much used only to make or receive important calls, my wife would  notccall unless it very important.

I use Fish Brain... its a piece of crap with a bunch of guys posting fish with the worst weight guesses. but it lets me know whats going on at different spots without having to call anybody.   1 guy had a fish that was about 4 lbs he posted as 13. unbelievable.  Ha Ha

Only app I use is The Weather Channel when I need to check the weather to see if there are storms in the area. It has an hourly forecast and a radar map, both of which are useful to the fisherman.
