An app that’s necessary
I need this app and my life seems to revolve around it. I love fishing and will only go out if I get the ok from this app. Never let me down. So much relevant information in one place. A big thanks to the developer.
Everything in one place
Love this app for simplicity of use, accessibility to all that you need and availability of real time data. Recommended this to Vic Coast Guard who were also impressed!
Has everything I need weather wise
Wind forecasts straight from BOM, wind reports and radar images are really handy as well! All info is usually pretty accurate too
