BassForecast is the hottest Bass fishing forecast app. In our Pro Angler catch rate study, 68% more Bass were caught per hour than the average during top 20% BassForecast Rated days and a whopping 305% more during top 10% rated days.
Designed exclusively for avid Bass Anglers and powered by AccuWeather, BassForecast analyzes many variables proven to affect Bass feeding behavior to produce a BassForecast Rating (BFR) from 1 (very tough conditions) to 10 (excellent conditions), for each day over the next 10 days…for any location worldwide.
Knowing the feeding mood of the fish helps you in 2 big ways:
#1 – Our rating system helps you plan 10 days in advance to be fishing during the highest rated days, which increases your odds.
#2 – Our new Adapted Patterns section helps you figure out bass catching patterns faster…even on low rated, tough days. How many times have you left the lake wondering what you could have done differently? BassForecast Adapted Patterns offers Location, Presentation and Bait Tips, dynamically adjusted to each day’s conditions, rating and season.
Most importantly, BassForecast automatically updates its Ratings and Tips based on real-time weather forecasts & conditions. Just enter your desired fishing locations and BassForecast does all the work for you.
To develop its proprietary BassForecast Rating system, BassForecast researched temperature transfer reports from water engineers and bass feeding behavior research reports from fishery biologists. The system analyzes past actual and future forecast temperatures applying the Temperature Time Lag Effect© because water temps LAG air temps. It also adjusts for seasonal hours of daylight, wind speed & direction, moon phases, peak feeding periods, sky conditions, rain….and atmospheric frontal conditions since Bass feed more actively during a rapidly falling barometer and less actively following a rapidly rising barometer.

Somewhat helpful I think??
I like this app. As a fairly new fisherman I like that this app claims to help me know what days are potentially better than others. I like that it tells you where (what parts of a lake) to fish and how fast and even the potentially best lures. What I wish it had more of is the why?? Why is this lure better today? Why are drop offs better today than the main lake? I believe the people using this app are mostly newbies to fishing because I imagine more experienced anglers already have or know where to get this knowledge for free. Would love to see some tips from the pros or even some write ups about lures or something pertaining to the conditions the app is showing on a given day. But more than anything. I’d love to know why the app is telling me to use this location, presentation and lure on a given day. Thanks for reading. Great app though but could be better. I feel like the info the app is giving is found easily on the net if you know what your looking for though. I don’t mind paying for it because knowledge is power and if you’ve got the knowledge and I don’t. Well.... you get it.

Hi there, this is awesome feedback! I really appreciate you taking the time to let us know how we can improve. I actually have a great user guide that I would love to send you via email - it goes a lot more in depth on the why/how our tips are calculated. Having this information integrated into the app is a great idea though! If you email into firstname.lastname@example.org, I’d love to chat more!
Ok, so I’ve had the app for almost a week now. I absolutely love the aesthetics, the layout and all the information provided for you. I am however on the verge of deleting the app because of some issues. When I open the app, it says reeling in the middle for well over 5mins before I can do anything. Also, when I tap the center to view major/minor feeding times they are blank for several minutes. Then when I switch between viewing weather info or lures it says reeling for another 3-5mins before allowing me to do anything. This is extremely frustrating when I’m out fishing and need to gather information quickly but I’m forced to stand there and wait multiple times for things to load. Please, please resolve this issue. This is hands down my favorite app for fishing times and I do not want to go back to one of the many others I’ve used in the past but if I am forced to continue waiting and waiting, I will delete and go back. This app is sincerely great, and I highly recommend it to anyone out there. The info accuracy and weather accuracy is hands down the best. Accu weather is my one and only weather source and has been for many many years. Again, I love this app and don’t want to go back to garbage wanna be’s so please resolve these issues so I can continue using my app. Thank you ladies and gents for the time and for the effort to fix whatever the issues are. I know you guys will take care of it.

Unsure as of now
I really like the fundamental idea of the app, however, the only option I have to “log in” is through Facebook. I don’t have, nor do I want a Facebook account. Other than “continuing as a guest” I feel I am restricted from certain aspects of the app. I am currently using the 60 day free trial and so far I truly enjoy the limited functions that do work. On the map of the lake where fish “should” be, the informative boxes that pop up do not generate any text, at all. If you can fix the app to where non social media users can log in through an email; I think it would be much better. The overall cost ($10/yr) is a steal when factoring in the data collected and dispersed from all over. If I cannot log in as a “verified user”, then I will cancel and delete the app once my 60 day trial has expired. I also emailed the customer support last week and haven’t received a reply pertaining to my issue. That’s why I gave it a 2 star rating. Terrible customer service. If they can improve their customer relations issues and the log in issues, it would easily be rated a 5+ star app.

Hi Daniel, we have just released an update that should solve these issues. I’m also still in contact with our technical team regarding the Facebook login issue - you definitely don’t need a Facebook account to log in. I’m sorry you feel our customer service is lacking. If you don’t mind, please check to see if my emails are going to your junk mailbox. Thank you for the well thought out review and I hope we can earn back your support.
