    08 12 2020. The last 1 or 2 days I am unable to open up the pro version of fish brain. Samsung Galaxy S10 with all the updates. I cleared the cache, cleared the data, uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Now I cannot log in. please advise. Thank you and stay safe. Update. Works well but buggy sometimes. Won't let me make an account. I get the error message..."something went wrong.try sgain later". Please help.

    Fishbrain is the best. I wish I had known about this Awesome App before, I would have been a member years ago. All the fantastic pictures from all ages. And the great information you get, locations, gear, bait, tackle. I look forward to being a member every day. I can’t wait to go get back on the water. I am hoping next season to get a 15-17 ft boat with an outboard motor maybe 25 Hp. I have always wanted one. But don’t have the money for it. Looking for a used one with a trailer. May be a member knows of one for sale in the CT area. I will end with the Fisherman’s Prayer I pray that I may live to fish until my dying day. And when it comes to my last cast. I then most humbly pray: When in the Lords Great landing net and Peacefully Asleep that in His mercy I be judged Big enough to Keep. Wind in your sails, tight lines and Fish on. ————&lt;*((()()(()))(((&gt;&lt; :-)

    Usable but one has to think for himself quite a bit because of the weird way the bodies of water available for registration is chosen as well as the fact you can only choose lures from their database (at least I don't find an option to add any). This leads to: 1. Fish species that don't even live in a lake being registered there (probably because it's the nearest lake with possibility to register). 2. Only around 10%-15% (in my case) registrations with lures used. Ok as free version.

  • Love it, but one problem Dec 19, 2019

    By ERrkre3487
    This is a great universal app for sharing your catches and fishing trips. I really enjoy using it. However, there is one inconvenience I wish they would fix. When I am on the map page looking at a fishing water, there is an option labeled “species” underneath the fishing water name. When I click on that it shows me all the species caught at that fishing water. I click on one species caught there and it gives me information about the species I clicked on and all the catches of that species worldwide. I wish instead of showing me all the catches it would only show me only the catches at the specific fishing water I am looking at. For example, I am looking at Oneida Lake, New York. I click on “species”. It gives me a list of the species caught there. One of the species is the chain pickerel. There are 64 catches of it at Oneida lake. I want to see them so I click on it. Instead, it gives me all the catches worldwide, not just at Oneida Lake. It is a really disappointing flaw. I would really appreciate it if they fixed it.

    This is a really cool app, but the dev's really need to take some time to work out the bugs. With as much money as yall are raking in with your subscription service, theres no reason why you guys cant iron out the problems. Im running this app on a Note 8 which is certainly not a pushover of a phone and I have constant issues with editing my profile, upload failures, and gps issues. For the money, you guys should be more ahead of the game. 4-ish out of 5

  • For the Record I love Fish Brain but.... Oct 15, 2019

    By Homie da Klown
    Fish brain has been advertising how they have a new store and you can purchase items from their site. I have taken the liberty of doing exactly that. While I will say I am totally satisfied with the Fishbrain fishing shirt that I received. I am completely unsatisfied with the customer service or the lack there of. I purchased a shirt and two hats for $50 and only received the shirt. $30 went to fish brain charity I’m assuming because I still haven’t seen it and no one has any answers. They just keep telling me they’re going to get back to me. But they never do. I would suggest being mindful about spending money on their site. They don’t seem to help with any lost items or money that’s been spent already. It drives me mad because I still use the site and enjoy the benefits of fish brain. But it’s getting upsetting because if you can’t handle a $50 order then I’m never going to drop a $500 order. Just give me my hat or my money already. Because to me this is no different than stealing. I’m sure they don’t want that reputation.

    It was a great app until you morons tried to make as much money as possible from it. Seriously, I now have to pay to see the statistics of what other people caught and at what time? It's probably not even your data. I'm sure it's based off what other people caught. The only thing that's free is the "Instagram" feed, the map, and the weather. So I guess there is no reason to keep using it anymore.

    Updated comments after 2 months with the app. It's a cool app but I have mobility issues and I find that the map or location tags are never very good at showing the access to the water. I would love to see you guys requesting that info. I mean there's plenty of older guys and guys who aren't looking for a hike to fish. For me it's necessary, I'm sick of driving somewhere just to find out I can't access the water. Not worth 12.99 monthly

  • I love this app but... Apr 14, 2018

    By Joseph.Dancer
    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.

    Hard to read map text wise, no names on city's, lakes or much of anything. Ridiculous pricing for an app that you would only use a few times a year for a vacation or weekend fishing expedition. I also installed fishing spots app. I think that it is better, just needs more users but at least you can read the map.

  • Fishbrain Folks Great Sep 28, 2018

    By Duncan&Sons
    I am so glad I came across Fishbrain and downloaded the app. So much great information from pros and manufacturers of great fishing gear, but mostly everyday fishermen, like you and me. And, we all know people who fish are just great, friendly people (other than one lady, trout fishing p, who thought if I caught a big trout, then there was surely a second one sitting right beside it waiting for her fly, so she’d practically drown me to steal my spot). But, Fishbrain folks are smarter and friendlier than that, and that’s why we need to get all our fishing friends to join. Guaranteed you’ll learn something, and enjoy watching people all around the world reeling in what we’re all after... that next big fish - and story to go with it. Try it out! Fishbrain!

    Its Great !!! I've been using it for a while now and have been reading the reviews by others who have tried it and all I can say is that I hope that the reviewers that gAve this app a low rating are better at catching fish than they are at learning how to use this app. This app is a little complicated to figure out how to use... but once you do it works GREAT !!! And I only use the FREE Version. This app will tell you everything that you need to know about where the fish are bitting and when to go by date and time and what they are hitting on. You just have to have patience to learn how to use it. It wont disappoint you once you learn how to use it. It sort of like learning how to fish... you have to work at it to be any good at it.

    Haven't used it much but I must say if and when I do...its all there in great detail!!! From the tackle...to pinpoint directions to the exact spot on the lake u chose to fish..as long as ppl chose to share their secret spots!!! I think that's absolutely awesome...the folks at Fishbrain took every fisherman into their thoughts designing this app...WELL DONE FISHBRAIN 🙏🏻🙏🏻✊✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿!!!!

  • Amazing app May 1, 2020

    By jmonethemislemanbunny
    This is an amazing app for a fisherman or woman but during quarantine I fell that Fishbrain pro should be free there are no problems except sometimes it will glitch and not show your messages or it will log you out and it takes a while to log back in I got logged out from closing the app then it took like 25 minutes to log back in over all five star app some kinks yes but it’s nothing this amazing apps delvopers can’t fix and if you seen some of the giants people catch you’ll wanna travel ASAP to get to that spot and fish straight away and get on some big fish and get a nice one and get good keepers this is amazing honestly I would travel to pine lake because of one of the fish that someone caught I would get this

  • Great app but terrible users! Sep 1, 2018

    By jon jon 1783
    I’ve never reviewed any apps or commented and I know that this is a long shot but ever time I open this app I get extremely aggravated! Anglers continue to keep short fish and out pictures up! This is in no way the fault of fish brain but as anglers who love fishing something needs to be done! I think that something needs to be done to advertise the limits in areas! Although this would not stop poaching it would help make people more aware of the legal limits ( size and amount)! The app is awesome but the people using it often do not follow the rules! Today I saw a fluke pictured with a measuring tape in the picture! The fluke wasn’t even close to being a keeper, it was at least 5 inches off! I really hope that someone in Fishbrain sees this and understands how big of a problem it is and hoping that we can attempt to fix people’s perception that keeping short fish is ok! Thank you for your time and I hope that changes will come!

    Great app but there a few issues that could probably be easily resolved. It would be awesome if you guys had each lakes catches setup to how your normal feed is. Like each picture is bigger and you don't have to press it to look at it then back out of it . Lol not a huge deal but would make the app a little more convenient . But other then that if you fish and Wana get better at fishing, get this app

  • Great app. Some premium issues Jun 9, 2019

    By your local boi
    So I got the app and thought it was great. I wanted to go fishing, so I wanted to the the exact spots where they caught the fish. To do this, I became premium, and thought I would start out with the first month free. I began trying the exclusive premium thing, but it still said I had to buy it. When I pressed, “get 1 month free the $9.99 a month” it just said I had already gotten the membership, but still didn’t give me the premium privileges. I tried shutting down the app and even my phone, but it never allowed the app to know I got premium. I got premium on 6/9/19 so I don’t know if I will get my membership tomorrow or not. Right now I’m not very angry because of the free trial, but when it starts charging and I don’t get the privileges then I’ll be mad. Otherwise, a great app. I would like to have my premium though. Please fix Fishbrain. Thank you

    This has been very useful tool in the game we call fishing! My problem was I really don't know any anglers in the area to pick a brain about "where's the best place to fish " so the MAP portion of the app solved that question right away! The many tips and bite times for certain species has been helpful as well. I call it Facebook for fishing but with no drama and fish! Oops... after 7 days it locks down... it was a good app...

  • Getting better... Jul 17, 2018

    By toddseff
    Update! It has been one year since I wrote the review below and things seem to be improving (bumped from one star to three ). I am however, still seeing a ton of bass posts and I don’t even fish for bass; not following the species, or a “catch position” where they can even be caught. Then there’s the premium features: which are minimal considering the cost. I definitely recommend this app to any and all anglers and I hope things continue to improve. Still has a lot of potential! App has taken a turn for the worst, crap from other countries is showing up in my feed, have to scroll for days to even find a catch in the places I fish not to mention every species known to man is also showing up in my feed; app has potential but doesn&#39;t seem to be getting the attention it needs!

    Pro version is worth it if you fish a lot. The only complaint i would have is there are no moderators removing catches with weights that aren't proven or obviously wrong in the leaderboards. Im sure it will get better.

I have stove goes to many locations just to find out it was a private area and almost got shot one time with my children! Fishbrain please take the time to make sure you only put public waters on here or make sure you add something that tells you it is private!!! And how about trying to how some people to get water depths at more areas like Creek and lakes not just the river.

  • Decent, But WAY Overpiced App Jul 11, 2018

    By The Big R Man
    *Update* Hey, would you look at that! I got a canned, thoughtless, copy/paste response from the developer. It’s a cool app overall, but I just cancelled my premium subscription. The app is clunky and can be extremely confusing to navigate around. My feed keeps showing me fish that are getting caught hundreds of miles away from me that I have no interest in. The most frustrating part is when you click onto a lake’s main page and go into “Catches” you see a huge gallery of all the different user’s fish. Click on one to see the picture full screen, and then you know what? There’s no way to get back to the gallery. Clicking the back button takes you back to the map and then you have to repeat all your steps. For the ridiculous price they charge the quality of the app just is not there, plain and simple. I mean seriously - eight bucks A MONTH!?!? Waste of money.

  • Hmmm....not impressed May 20, 2020

    By Thought it would b btr
    It&#39;s kind of a scam as far as I&#39;m concerned. First thing I noticed after opening app and seeing a picture of &#34;a fish caught near me&#34; was that the automated caption listed a local area near me, but the picture itself had a caption that said it was in a different state. If they&#39;re going to lie outright they should at least try a little harder to make it believable. (Also it was a fresh water fish and I live on the Atlantic coast - saltwater). Your only option to try it is to sign up for a free trial that will bill you automatically from then on. Good luck stopping it from billing you
