Find the fish with iFishEarth Fishing Reports
As the seasons change and we move away from the hot summer days into cooler autumn days and nights we change our habits. The same thing happens with fish and iFishEarth Fishing Reports can help you locate where all the fish have gone. This free universal app requires iOS 7.0 or later.
The iFishEarth app features reports from around the United States and even a few from Mexico and Central America. These reports go into specific information about the latest fishing condition and just how good the fishing has been recently. The information comes from two sources, other users and actual professional fishing guides.
You don't need to register to access the information contained in the app but you must sign up if you want to share your own fishing experiences and upload photos of the fish you caught. iFishEarth uses the GPS in your iOS device to provide you with fishing reports close to where you are. These can include photos or details of a recent trip. These are available by tapping the Feed button at the bottom left of the screen.
Next to that button is Reports. This is where you will find more detailed information from the fishing guides. You can choose to view the location of the reports in a list or on a map. The green pins indicate where the guides work and a simple tap brings up the reports. You can then choose the latest reports or all those available for that region. Most of the guides will give you an overview of the fishing including what species are being caught, the number and size of the fish landed, what baits are being used successfully, changes in water temperature and if the fish are being located in a specific environment like deep holes, or closer to shore, or in bottom structure.
Users will also find information especially useful to those living or fishing in a coastal area. They can access the latest specific tidal highs and lows for the current day. They can be shown on a map or in a list. In addition to the times of high and low tides, the app has sunrise and sunset, moonrise and moonset, and the phase of the moon. So lots of information to help users gauge just when is the best time to be fishing at that specific location.
The reports from the fishing guides is the most helpful data in iFishEarth Fishing Reports. The user reports tend to be just pictures of their catch and some basic information or no info at all. All the tidal data and marine forecasts can be found in a number of other sources. But getting up to date detailed information about what is being caught, with what baits, and where will make your fishing trips a lot more successful. Check out iFishEarth Fishing Reports.
