Awesome app.........but

Awesome app. Works great and doesn't crash on me. Also I am so excited that it doesn't cost anything like the other apps. But the only 2 problems are that the points are so low compared to the rewards and there is not a whole lot of lakes that I can find exactly what lures to use there. Most of the lakes I look up whether it be Okeechobee or Lake Fork the lures to use is always the same and really doesn't help out a lot on that. The points to redeem a reward are outrageous. I figured that if u want the hobie kayak which is 900,000 points then u would have to post a catch every day for 82 years to get it. Whenever I am 90 something years old I am not going to want a kayak anymore. There are other ways to get more points but it would take you years to save up for something like the kayak, yeti cooler, or ibobber without going to the website and buying stuff to get 1,000 points. To fix this add more ways to earn points or lower the points required to get rewards. If this and the lure to use on whichever lake was fixed it would be a easy 5⭐️ app.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll pass this on to our development team. We're always adding new improvements and features to NetFish. Regarding our Reelwards program, NetFish was created to help anglers get out and fish first. We do this by providing detailed information about thousands of waterways in North America. Not only that, but we provide the same premium features other apps charge, all 100% FREE. Our Reelwards program was created to added another level of fun to the app and a way to give back to anglers for participating with the community. We will be adding more ways to earn in future releases so you'll be able to get your very own iBobber for free. If you have any suggestions please reach out to us at and thanks again for the feedback.


Good app but draw backs

I have read a few other reviews and I agree with people about the points. Way too high for some things on here but that’s not something that greatly concerns me. What does get me is I like to use fishing near me and the one spot that I keep getting doesn’t even exist any more. They drained that pond years ago. Living in Kansas I do have great places to fish but I am always looking for more. I have no problem traveling to fish either. Maybe increase the search parameters for that to include 100 miles or more from current location. Also I would second the notion that there needs to be more detailed info on what to use in different waters. It says same thing for everything in Kansas. It doesn’t work that way here just saying. On a separate note I do have an ibobber and yes I love using it and it has helped me land or my daughter land the fish I have uploaded to the app. Thanks for taking time to read this.

Appreciate the feedback. We will be offering more ways to earn points in the next release. Please stay tuned for this. Can you message us at to let us know the pond that no longer exists. Also you can pinch out on your current map view to open up locations that are further out. Once you do that you can tap on the "Search This Area" button and lakes will populate. They are centered so move your map in the area you're interested in and you'll see them populate. I hope that helps. We love feedback like this so please keep it coming by messaging us at and we'll be happy to address it.


Multiple Issues

So let me start by saying that I understand this is a free app. Unfortunately you get what you pay for (or didn't pay for). The app requires you to give details about your catch, which would be fine if they had everything you needed. Multiple major brands are missing (Bass Pro included), so when I went to post about my catch I had to pick a bunch of gear I didn't use. This renders an app like this nearly useless. If the point is to share information then there needs to be custom fields or a way to omit details that don't list your gear. I also found the map feature restrictive and difficult to use. I searched for a well known lake in my area and it was the very last choice in the list of about 15 other lakes with the same name (no location info included) so I had to search 15 times to find the right one. Again I know this is a free app and it will get better, but for now this app did nothing but make me run back to my other fishing apps.

Developer Response

Thanks for the feedback. These all seem relevant and make sense. Apologies for your first experience with the app. We will make those changes immediately. Regarding your search for the waterways. Lake names are definitely reused in each state and why we put the state of the lake next to each search result. When you typed in your lake did you see the state next to it? I would like to get more information on your experience searching for the waterway in question. If you could email us at we'd love to learn more about how you'd like to see the map.
