It’s a social network for anglers. That means lots of people posting pictures of themselves with shockingly giant halibut—and it also means the app is packed to the, uh, gills with tips on local hot spots, advice on bait and gear, and even the ability to ID any fish you’ve caught simply by snapping a photo of it.

I love this app but...

Unfortunately their catch data is near worthless given the fact you’re forced to pick from a few predetermined fishing locations. How these locations are picked, I have no idea, some spots make sense, some don’t. Others appear to be user submitted (spelling and capitalization errors) but there’s no where in the app to do so. When you log a catch it forces you to select one of a few nearby fishing “spots” which often are nowhere near you, you can leave it blank but by default it’ll just pick the closest one for you. This may not seem like a huge issue but it ends up completely screwing any catch data or fish forecasts. I mean the top fish for almost every salt water spot around here is large mouth bass, and you’ve got fish caught 5-10 miles away from where they’re marked. If fish brain just added the ability to create a new fishing “spot” this issue could be almost completely avoided. You can just let the community moderate it too. Believe me no one like incorrect data.

Update: !!!!Awesome feedback

Business model disappointing

In a world where ad revenue and affiliate links seem to allow many apps and platforms to be usable without a fee but still make the developers/owners money, Fishbrain seems to not be able to do that. Instead they are starting to remove the features people got used to using and now can’t access unless a subscription is paid. For me, I live on a body of water yet my catches all default to a body of water that doesn’t exist. I was ok with the free version not showing catch locations, and even getting bodies of water wrong—after all, for that info I can understand asking a fee. I can see fishbrain users around me and in general getting fed up with investing all this data to an app that turns around and sells it to lose features they had before. To me that is also fair to have some of the features provided in exchange for that catch data.

I hope the devs can come up with a better way to provide the data at a free point. Even offering a month premium free for a purchase made on the app would be nice. My advice is make an ad-based version that gives most features free and a paid version that provides all features. Otherwise, I don’t see myself or others utilizing the platform much longer. I’ve caught and logged over 200 fish this year, and if I’m not confident I’ll be able to access things I did prior, I’m going to have to find an alternative platform. That being said, I do love the app!
