Perfect and Easy

I use this to run a small private tournament. Everybody easily registers and I can easily use the app to communicate to the participants. We run the tournament by length and the app automatically culls and gives real time rankings. The app allows you to enter length and a picture of the species being caught. A bump board is recommended. It makes the tournament so much fun because of the real time rankings. Starts and ends right on time and the app doesn’t allow for entering before and after the whistle. Although, I use for a small tourney, it would work for any size. This is the best app for any fishing tournament. Used know for 3 years and never has a glitch. Perfect and easy!!

Fishdonkey APP

I use the app to manage all the fish entries for the ice fishing tournament I run annually. Working with Bonnie and Darren make it a really nice experience, indeed. If something requires a change or edit, they are responsive and offer creative ideas to help resolve them. It is totally a self manageable app. It is both dynamic and optimal for the user and the person using it to manage a tournament. I especially like the reporting it gives, as it allows me to gain intelligence from the data to make improvements and enhancements on the fly or for the next. Great work guys!!

SJR 500 Rainy River Tournament

Used this app for the first time, and really enjoyed it!! Very easy to use. I followed the instructions I received after downloading, registering for the app, and it tells you how to do everything.
Being able to see fish entered from other anglers is nice. It’s great if you are a competitive angler. You can see entries in real-time. Entering a fish you have caught is so easy.
I would highly recommend this app if you are are going to host a fishing tournament, or even incorporating into your existing tournaments!!
