Must Have All in One Fishing Resource!

Much improved species ID and maps. Must have resource for anyone fishing in BC. Tides, regulations, Fish ID and more all in one app. Well laid out and easy to use!

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
