Fantastic App

The most best way to keep yourself informed about regulations and restrictions.
Also the Fish identifier function by using the camera on your phone is especially for new ocean anglers quite helpful. I recommend this app to everyone who is fishing at BC’s coast line

FishingBC review

This app has come a long ways in the last couple of years. It’s very handy.
The boundary map could be better. It would be nice to be able to zoom in. Otherwise big asset.

Could use a new look.

The information is up to date but it seems to be that the regulations get lost in the notifications in the area.
