BassForce® provides lure and bait recommendations based on weather, water & fish conditions. Created by pro anglers for any skill level - right at your fingertips.

Straight from the world’s greatest bass fishing minds to your phone, BassForce® puts the expertise of the greatest bass anglers of all time right at your fingertips. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned tournament veteran, BassForce® will help you elevate your skill to the next level!

Meet the BassForce®, top anglers from Major League Fishing (MLF) and Bassmaster (B.A.S.S.): Jason Christie, Edwin Evers, Alton Jones, Aaron Martens, Brandon Palaniuk, Skeet Reese, Gerald Swindle, Kevin VanDam, and Jacob Wheeler. These expert angler minds have made a living breaking down different bodies of water under every imaginable set of conditions to learn which lures to throw to catch fish and win tournaments at the highest level.

Our pros have collectively amassed over 200 years of bass fishing experience. The BassForce® app takes their experience and creates one all-encompassing place all about bass fishing to provide anglers of all skill levels with specific lure/bait recommendations - lure names, brand, size, weight and color - based on real world location, water conditions, weather conditions and fish conditions.

Real time on-the-water conditions always dictate which fishing techniques succeed and fail, and those conditions are constantly changing. A cold front came through – no problem, rain is moving in – we’ve got you covered, the water is getting muddy – we’ve seen that before.

How it Works:
- Enter Your Conditions. Import your weather conditions (sky, wind speed, barometer, air temp, moon phase), water conditions (clarity, temperature, lake level, level fluctuation, flowing / no flow), and fish conditions (fish stage, cover type, fishing pressure).
- Get Picks.* Based on access, receive Free Picks (each pro’s top 2 lure recommendations), *Premium Picks (each pro’s top 5 lure recommendations) and/or *Matched Picks (different pros have different strategies, see where their views overlap).

Other Key Features:
- Create your own strategy by selecting the lures you want to try, and the order you want to try them in. Save recommendations and organize your plan of attack.
- Shopping List. Save lure recommendations to your Shopping List so you can easily access them the next time you’re shopping for tackle.
- Presets. Have a favorite fishing spot? Input conditions once and save them for easy access later. Just update the weather conditions and go.
- Video Tips. Our instructional videos from the pros will help you make every cast count. Many lures require a specific retrieve or cadence to entice big bass, and our pros reveal their secrets to you.

Lure picks are highly accurate and come directly from the pros. Each BassForce® pro spends countless hours putting their personal bass fishing know-how into the BassForce® app to account for any possible scenario.

Good but expensive

I’ve tried this app out twice now on the water and both times had great luck. I’m a long time angler, but this is a cool way to learn from the best of the best. It’s probably more expensive than it should be, but as far as I’m concerned it’s worth the money for any serious angler.

Developer Response ,

Samuel, thanks, and we are so glad you're enjoying BassForce! As fishing season kicks into high gear we sincerely believe our app will give you a big advantage. If you have any questions or need anything please reach out to us! We have big plans for future features and content as well.

Like most of you I don’t fish for a living. This app has been a wealth of knowledge for the time I do have to get in the water. Considerably shortens the time to catch fish. Years of information and trial and error at your finger tips. If your like me and don’t have a lot of time. This app will serve you well. I see people complain about the cost but I look at it as I’m saving money. I’d be spending more than the cost of this app of baits that won’t get used. There’s not a single person I know that don’t have a $25 jerk after they all said they’d never buy one! Do yourself a favor. You won’t be sorry. Right lines!

Putting you on fish fast is exactly what we're trying to do here at BassForce. We are so glad it's working well for you!

Won my tournament!

I fish on a high school fishing team and we won our first tournament of the year using this app with a 5 fish stringer weighing 19-6! We ran through several possible conditions and selected 7 baits that the pros recommended. We rotated through those baits and caught fish on 5 of those 7. Our best luck came on a Speed Trap 18 recommended by Jacob Wheeler. My biggest was a 5 pounder. So far I’m pretty sure I’m the only one in our club with the app so I hope to keep it secret a little bit longer. It’s definitely an advantage.

Developer Response ,

Congratulations Jimbo, winning a tournament is a great accomplishment! The skill is all yours, and we're excited that BassForce was able to help you develop a successful game plan. Thanks so much for sharing that with us!
