Fishing is one of those activities which many take up for different reasons. Whether you like the relaxing nature of a day out fishing or a more action packed fishing experience, fishing has it all. While your rod, reel, line and bait are all you really need to catch fish, there are a number of Android apps which are available and designed to aid the experience for both new and expert fishing enthusiasts alike. Below are ten fishing-based Android apps that are currently worth checking out.
Kicking off the list today is Fishing Knots. This is an app which looks to make sure you know about all the knots you will ever need to have the best chance of catching the fish you want to catch. Great and handy pocket tool for those who are new to fishing knots.
FishBrain – Fishing App
Up next is FishBrain and this is an app which is designed to be more of a social source of information. Much of the content is provided by fellow anglers and you can expect to find information on when is the best time to fish in certain spots as well as more generic information like weather forecasts for certain fishing areas.
My Fishing Advisor
In contrast to the last app, My Fishing Advisor looks to be a one stop shop app which can help you make sure you are prepared correctly for the type of fish you hope to catch and also the area where you are fishing. Not to mention, this one also allows you to save data so you can build up your own list of dos and don'ts for your favorite fishing haunts.
For those who are looking to cast a few lines in between the times when you can actually make it to your favorite fishing spot, then Fishing Hook is a game which will do that. The graphics and gameplay on offer have been well received and should be a good way to get your fishing fix.
Fishing & Hunting Solunar Time
Up next is an app which looks to take preparing for fishing to a much more technical level. This app uses Solunar Tables theory to help predict when exactly is the best time to fish in any particular location. Good for those who are looking for an app which can offer more detailed information.
Fishing Points GPS Navigation
This app offers some similar features to the last one, as it also looks to improve the chances of catching based on Solunar data. However, it also offers some additional features too like its syncing ability with Google Maps for improved fishing hotspot recommendations, as well as the ability to create your own fishing log.
Fly Fishing Encyclopedia
For those new to the fishing game, this is a handy little app which looks to act as an encyclopedia of fishing information. Whether it is learning the tricks of the trade or choosing which bait to use, this is an app filled with useful fishing-related information.
Deeper – Smart Fishfinder
Deeper is another app which looks to offer a smarter way to fish. This is an app which makes use of sonar functionality to find out specific information like the location of fish, the depth of the water, and the current temperature of the water. As well as a number of more basic features like local weather forecasts and so on.
Trimble GPS Fish Free
Moving on and Trimble also looks to provide a more comprehensive level of information for the more serious fishers. Using GPS, this app looks to track various aspects of fishing including more fundamental information like boat drifting or trolling paths. As well as a ton of additional features like recording your own log, sharing images and so on.
Speaking of photos, closing out the list today is REELphoto and this is an app which is primarily designed to bring those interested in fishing together. You can post videos and images of your catch, rate other people's images and generally get to know more fishing enthusiasts.
