Too much trouble by rtln
I’ve got to hand over all my personal information before I can even SEE the app. Forget it! Your 1 star reviews are well deserved.
Looks really good by Some random guy 69420
Although I have not used the app very much, seems easy to understand and is a great app!
Awesome app by fishy fish boi
It is an awesome app that can be very helpful sometimes, but it’s mostly just fun to see what other people are catching!
Couldn’t even create an account by Spilov
There registration window has a bug - did not accept any of my password combinations. Kept telling me “password can only be...”. 1 star because cannot give 0.
Awesome App!! by fish'em all
Great app for fisherman and helps other fisherman get some ideas about fishing technique and tips. And definitely finding good fishing spots.
Perfect by PatMartJr
Great App to check out what and where people are catching fish. Highly recommend.
Community by texas angler squad
It’s a great way to communicate with anglers across the country
Another fishing app with fake fishing spots by Fritzedup
People, these spots are populated from other anglers. How many anglers do you know that truthfully share their fishing holes? I don’t know any and can’t trust an app like this to tell me. I’ll pass.
Another data miner by Loudboys
Yet another app that requires you to create an account to use it. Ridiculous.
It is awesome by Mprgirl572
It is an awesome app I really suggest it
And it’s back to being great again! by Ericdcompton
I am changing my previous 1 star review back to 5 stars after the latest update. I’m glad I didn’t delete the app and never look back after the app got new ownership, because it is back to the functional app that I originally loved since they brought back the map feature to show where fish are being caught. That’s the only reason I used this app so much in the past anyways!! Thanks for the update!!!
This is Not a fishing app by ReDg108
It nice that folks are catching fish 3-5k miles away from me, though some are goldfish sized. I'm more interested in the waters around my area that are naturally populated with fish. I don't care for the DC reflecting pond, can't fish there even if it was stocked with fish. So I have to navigate through pages and menus to get to my local spots which is a Huge PITA. This app is more focused at folks showing off what they catch than assisting in finding or marking the best places and times to cast.
Great app until no MAP by Rucklubster
Loved it until the new update which is nice and smooth but the map function was a must!
Any update on next update with map function?
What a bummer by TecoD
Here I thought I was downloading the fishing version of Waze.... give me a map with catch icons by my species selection...nope... no catch map whatsoever. Nada. Sure is nice to see people fishing... but until I can dial-in my selected catch waters... viewing catch photos from Canada does me zero good. No catch map based upon my water criteria... catch and release app.
Great App! by Kozakldyes
Great app for sharing your catch with people who care about fishing. You can also learn more about patters of when and how people catch fish. I hope more people start using this app!
Very helpful by Toinee Toine
This is a great app!! It really gives us anglers the necessary information needed to enjoy what we love to do.... "GO FISHING!!"
Horrible by Teachet1
Too complicated to use or find fishing spots
BillK by buddy1433
Now they require that I created an account and harvest my birthdate and email address. Goodbye Fishing Spots, it was fun while it lasted.
Love the app by Levi2016
One thing missing is a quick click to location for driving. It give you a google map but you can't click on the location for driving directions. Still have it 5 stars because it's still an awesome app.
Bad bad bad by young fib
Uhhhhh did I miss something? First they charge me for the full app without asking, then they update the thing and it's a completely different app. Now it's some crappy social media. I'm seeing fish people are catching in Oregon and I live in Texas and could care less than you could imagine what fisherman are doing up there. I can't even see the map anymore, which was the only useful part of this dumb overpriced thing. And I'm plagued with picture of fish species that don't even exist within 500 miles of me. Possibly the worst 6$ I accidentally spent ever. More like stolen from me. Terrible.
Great App, Use It Everywhere I Go by Kiz Miaz
Usually pretty accurate and updated. Lots of users and lots of input keeps this app relevant
Recent update totally destroyed purpose of having this app by Ek0521
Recent update totally destroyed purpose of having this app even purchased the ad free for $1.99 for it but nothing matters now.
No use by Sir Zigman
If you are looking for an app that helps you find fishing spots local to you....this is not the app.
So much potential by Derrick Rainey
Great app just needs a few updates for consumers to be completely satisfied.
Simple is sometimes better by sapphirebetty
This update blows. Primarily got this app just to have something easy to open to get best fishing times. This is way too unnecessarily complicated with all the personal information that's requested to just register and open the app. I'm surprised it doesn't ask for my favorite food and color.
Nothing is intuitive about this update at all. I don't want to see a feed of people 1,000 miles from where I am once I finally open the app. Just a map and what's getting caught near me with best fishing times.
For these reasons, I'm deleting this one. Sometimes simple is better.
Awsome by Asapparra2314151
What happened? by iarnold4
This used to be my go to app for quick, reliable fishing information. Now it's Instagram for fish. The interface is terrible, and finding useful information is an absolute nightmare. I deleted the app.
Why? by Salvaan1
Why would you remove the map? Why would you update the app without the map portion ready for release ? This app is being deleted
I agree with the others by alexg425
This app is now useless with no map. Also the forum was removed and the data was not properly transferred over. The old version was much better just didnt look as nice. The new version is still glitchy and has a bunch of useless features that don't even work. They dont even have brown trout as a listed species and i put in a request to add it a week ago. I will be looking for a new app to keep track of spots and help others in my area.
Terrible after update by Jattack113
Used to love this app until they look the map away. Now it's useless. I'm keeping it until the next update to see if they bring the map back... if not - I'm deleting!
Love the upgrade by Fishlady55
It is nice to see this app updated it has been way to long. Love that you can follow particular bodies of water or species of fish. Thank you
Ruined by bad updates equal bad reviews
Pointless now, great idea on turning it into a fishing instagram and removing the map.
Extremely disappointed by Website developer
I'm extremely disappointed with the new update which does not include the GPS map feature where we can search catches nearby. You guys improved the design but totally RUINED the most important part of the app.
Garbage by Zack5
This app used to be one of the best, used to be able scout out locations and have the freedom to look around now you have to add lakes to scout, it's pretty much a waste of time now
Very nice app electric catch log & cool Solunar forecasting! by fishingalways
Best fishing app in App Store!
Was Good Now Terrible by Baseball man if soccer
Was a great app. Useless now. Deleted.
Crap by Golden Eagle 1
Your update means this Pp will be deleted and my inital investment in the trash. Thanks for reinventing the wheel. You all did have a good app. No more.
Great update! So many new features by Tammy Franklin
The forecast feature is awesome! I love everything about the new update. It took a really outdated app and added a user friendly look and feel. It's my new favorite app!!!
Please please bring the old version back by lord rastapopoulos
How can we locate fishing spots on our map? Why did you get rid of that amazing feature? Please please please get a look at every other review after the update. This update mess this Application up. Please send us back to the old version, we were happy with it
No map by Lperez5
The only reason I got the update was I that got it would have a better map not get rid of it now it's they most useless app ever
"YOU BLEW IT!" by Scotty -- G
This app used to be my favorite app to use to find fishing spots. After this most recent update, I think I will be deleting the app. This used to have a map with GPS and pictures to prove that people caught fish at that GPS location. Now I literally have to click on each picture just to see where it was taken. That is the hardest way to find a Fishing Spot ever. What if you just want to check in your area to see where there are some good spots? You took that option away from us. And for that I am taking my loyalty somewhere else.
Love the upgrade by Jstawski
I am so happy they updated. The old one was old and outdated. I hear they are coming up with great functionality! I can't wait. The best part is the Fishing Forecast under the more menu.
Ruined it by AaronTau
The only reason for using the app (the map) is gone.
Where's the map!? by ryan4514
Got rid of the best thing about the app! Nooooooooo!
Terrible. by TheGrumpyGinger
You literally got rid of everything that was useful....the app is now garbage
Social app? by Shogirl1234
If I wanted to be social while I fished they'd be with me already. I now have to search for what I originally got this app for.
No Map??? by Rc1887
I downloaded this to find fishing spots. But I can't find a map! It's set up like Pinterest and after you click the photo it says where it was taken. I want my area... I'm deleting app.
Hate the new update by Bigandrewgold
Seems like they are trying to turn it into a knockoff Facebook, and hides/gets rid of the core functionalities that is to make this app useful.
