Ratings and Reviews
Great App, Good Info
If you're a fisherman looking for a solid app, this is it. It clearly displays the posted catches around you, shows short weekly tutorial videos (which are all quite helpful), and let's you follow a specific type of fish to see where other people catch their bests. Additionally, on most catches, you can view the kind of bait (live or artificial) used for the catch you're viewing, along with the style of fishing (casting, trolling, bottom fishing, etc.) The only downside I can see is that there's premium membership content, such as the exact location of catches. This membership ranges in prices (depending if you buy a full year or monthly), but it overall seems a little overpriced considering that not everyone even lists the exact location of their catch. Overall, I give this app 4 stars for being a must have addition for an angler looking to find fishing holes and new baits, but not the full 5 since it's premium content doesn't seem worth the full price put forward by Fishbrain. That's a personal opinion though ;) Great job on a great app!!
Pretty good features, but buggy
Overall the app is mostly well designed with many useful features. The home screen is a social feed featuring catches - fun to read thru. Additional features include tracking the location, date, weather and gear used of your catch. Also you can pull up a map of a location and see where others caught fish, gear used, etc. You can comment and message other users/fishers. I also like that the community is generally very positive and supportive.
The app unfortunately also has several significant bugs. As others have noted, the single biggest issue is their feature that identifies the location of a catch is often wildly inaccurate and limiting. It forces you to pick an inaccurate location such as a stream flowing into a main river rather than the location in the river were you actually caught the fish. This makes membership almost deceptive since you're really paying for that location info. Shame on them. Another bug is the location search results that are unsorted and put waters that are thousands of miles away near the top rather than the nearest water of the same or similar name.
Lastly their support is unresponsive. They only send robo responses. It makes you feel like now that they have my money, they no longer care.
They have a good foundation and now need to focus on working out the bugs and providing better service.
Thanks for your feedback. If you have any other input regarding the app, please contact us at email@example.com. We are always trying to improve the app, and feedback and bug reports help us improve the app on a daily basis!
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.
