After The Catch provides anglers a advanced fishing journal and a powerful fishing analysis tool with the least amount of complication. Our simple and intuitive interface is designed to limit the amount of data entry while out on the water. The graphics and colors that are used are high contrast for easy viewing while using outdoors.
Location, anglers, rods, reels, baits data can be setup before heading out to your favorite fishing spot to limit the amount input needed while fishing. System defaults can be setup to also limit the amount of data entry needed for common data points.
After The Catch is designed to be as simple or as advanced as needed based on each angler’s needs. You decide how many and what data points to collect, maybe a simple picture is enough, or maybe you want bait type, location, pattern, weather conditions, water conditions and more for deeper analysis.
Also include is the ability to keep an inventory of Baits, Rods, Reels, and Line. Store detail information – Name, Model, Manufacture, Color, Size and notes.
Use After The Catch to improve your fishing results by using the powerful analysis and reporting tools. Analyze your past catches by location, date and time, weather, bait types and more.

Needs Major Updating
Overall I really like the layout of this app but in my opinion this App needs major updating and refinements. I have owned this app since inception and developer has not updated since 2011. Will not fetch weather information and developer will not respond to emails of any fix or update. There is also an issue with the pictures that when zoomed and placed where you would like it to be it always seems to come out skewed or stretched in some fashion. I also agree with others pertaining to being able to delete or turn off some information that you may not want to use. Like being able to delete fly baits because I never use them. It would save a bunch of screen clutter and be more efficient to only have what you normally would use. I would also like to see the font for each screen updated to a more visually pleasing, modern and smooth font. The current font is not even lined to the left, tiny and hard looking. A great addition to top it off would be solunar fishing times. This app can be all you need If developer would put in a bit more time for updates and refinements and respond to communication about issues with the app.
Best fishing log app!
After The Catch is the most complete of the fishing log options, and definitely has the most potential. If you put the time into familiarizing yourself with it's functionality and customizing the settings for your equipment and fishing style, you will find After the Catch to have all you could want in a fishing log...and more.
This is a revised review. After the Catch promptly responded to my request for help, and showed me where I had gone wrong. Unfortunately, the original issue I thought I had is a bit of a symptom of the larger complaint I have with this program. Even after spending time familiarizing myself with the program, it isn't very intuitive, and I still have to think about where I saw specific functions in the app.
Support staff is very good!
This is by far the best fish log/journal app! It lets you track everything and the filter and default functions is what's missing in all other apps.
However, I think there is important data options missing from the filters. Primarily weather, water temp, and moon phases. These are crucial factors in fish logs. Adding these to the filters would make this app complete! In fact, making all data filterable would be awesome! But minimally weather, water temp, and moon.
Also, I disagree with the previous review that it should allow you to delete fields. Just fill out/record what you want! default fields would be ok, but I'd rather see an update for social media sharing, primarily Facebook.
The email share is nice, but let us show all of our friends our big catch at once! Especially with the surge of social sharing over the last couple years. PLUS it could say 'via after the catch app'. Free marketing!
