Great for fish ID, logging not so much
At this writing, the app is free, so keep that in mind. I was able to get up and running in a short amount of time. I made a quick check of the size limits for a half a dozen species in my area and each was reported accurately compared to the latest specification. It would be nice to have fish categories if more than one fish belongs to that grouping. For example there were 19 varieties of grouper listed, sharks... I quit counting. This makes the listing qute cluttered and hard to navigate. Since the app is free I'm giving it an "ok" for its ability to identify fish. I'm not sure why a logging feature is included other than the ability to upload a picture and basic info to Facebook. Most fishermen want to log many other details about the location, tide, moon phase, time, water temperature, and so on. There was no place to free hand notes about the catch. The app fails miserable here.
This app says that snapper season has no set season and that it is open all the time, but that is not the case. At least in in Jacksonville Florida the only time that snapper isn't closed is on the off chance that the FWC opens it for a weekend or two. Also they give bag limits for the golf coast of Florida as 2 per person when it is sadly just one per person. As well as the keeper measurement us of by 5 inches it says 20 and it is actually 15. This app is not one to go by and is going to cost you thousands of dollars including a boat boarding ordeal.
I like this App
Using your GPS location is a great way to go for someone with a live fish on the line and their current rule sheet in a hatch some where on the boat. Between Navionics Mobile for Navigation and all my GPS numbers, a good chart plotter / depth finder plus this Fish Rules app I will have everything I need on my IPhone. I can finally go paperless and have it all.
