Great initiative but Can I Fish here unreliable

When trying to use can I fish here when on the water in Moreton Bay when I tap the location icon it has never shown my position accurately on the map, generally out by kilometres. For example when easy of St Helena the map showed me near the Wynnum foreshore. I have tried it a few times across multiple days and hasn’t shown my location on water accurately yet. Strange ly while on land my location is more accurate

Missing a lot of photos is species

Great app but is missing a lot of photos of most fish species making some identifications difficult. Also the photo I’d is a good idea but needs work as it works only with common caught fish or times out.

Needs more

Very poor at best. Lack of information on size, limits. Rules and regulations are pretty hazy as well. Names are pretty bad to look up, finger mark for example also sand bass. Really bad photos of fish species and few of. A fisheries officer told me to get this app for reliable information, just leaves me with questions....
