    Catching 3 or 4 fishes for yourself and friends is exciting. But you don’t want to bring the fishing pole and end up stranded because fishing at the lake you chose is forbidden. FishBrain comes in handy, giving you all the info you need to plan and make your next big catch.

    Forget struggling to find the best fishing spots, Fishbrain can help you find good places to fish while you camp and also connect with 7 million other fishing enthusiasts. You can plan a trip based on the best fishing locations which is perfect for anyone who loves fishing.

    Feeding 8 people with 1 salmon is pretty impressive, but does it even count if you didn't post it somewhere? You now can easily post, share, and log all of your catch info in one spot...a spot that even doubles as a fishing map and forecaster.

    For the 10-year angler or the newbie on the water, fish radars tend to get complicated. Get a user-friendly version of the best fish finders right in the palm of your hand and track your next catch with ease.

  • I love this app but... May 5, 2021

    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. Update: !!!!Awesome feedback

    Very good app! My only gripe is that it seems my Google maps and fishbrain aren't syncing with each other anymore. Now when I press directions on the fishbrain app to go to the fishing spot, nothing happens. Hopefully there is an update for that, perhaps it's on my end. Who knows. When it works again I will update the rating accordingly. Update* Maps works again!
  • Great fishing app Jun 28, 2020

    By Hatrick19
    This is a really nice fishing app. You can see what other people are catching. You can also see where they caught it and what they used to catch it. You will get informed on the latest information and when to fish. If your new to fishing and hope to become an angler I definitely recommend this app. I have learned so much from this app. I personally think this would be the best fishing app if you’re looking for good fishing info. You can pay for a pro version. I don’t have it but it provides you with the best fishing info you can get from what I have heard. I have fished in certain areas because of this app. For the first time a posted a catch. I found a small bridge less than a mile away and I got a catch almost immediately. You can even shop for fishing gear on this app. They sell all kinds of baits, reels, rods, and lures. If you find a nice fishing spot it will provide you with what other people have caught there and how to get to the point you want to get to. Great app!! Definitely recommend it!!👍👍

    Awesome app that does exactly what it's supposed to do without any extra fluff. I do wish they would add a way to delete items from " your gear " and also have a designated map screen showing navonics for kayak fishing or if you don't have a designated fish finder but that's not a major complaint so otherwise the app is awesome
  • Map Issue Jul 18, 2021

    By Elite_Phantom16
    This app is a great resource for anglers like myself. It has a lot to offer and makes fishing a whole lot easier. However, there is a new issue that has recently surfaced that can be quite frustrating. This issue is with the map. The map interface is working and displaying as intended, however, searching for a location will place the camera at a random location in the Atlantic under Africa, no matter the fishing water. Also, if you click on a location marked in another angler’s post and then click the map where the name of the water is listed, it will send to you to the same exact spot. The Directions feature is also bugged, saying that the desired location of any fishing water is “nil or invalid.” A detailed look into this issue would be much appreciated as I find the map feature to be a valuable tool. Thank you.

  • 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.

    Very useful app. Just started giving me problems. Says it needs permission to use my storage to log my catch. I've never had to go through this before and I've been using this app for years. I made sure to allow access to storage and still isn't working. 🤔🧐
  • 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!

    After the last update, the directions to places is broken. It says that I do not have Google Maps installed, when I absolutely do. Otherwise awesome app and I'll change to four stars when that function is fixed. Would be five stars if a lot of the fishing places near me weren't marked incorrectly as the wrong location/name.
  • For the Record I love Fish Brain but.... Oct 15, 2019

    By Vixchips
    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.

    App used to be awesome. Now for some reason my catch location is always gulf of guinea. I live in NY. That's not even close. My other issue is no matter how I set my feed I get catches from very far away. Not even close to what I had set.

  • Support is bad Aug 11, 2021

    By Chrisk1162
    I’m giving this two stars because it used to be a good app. It helped me find some fishing spots when I first moved to Kansas City. If I were rating it based on how it performs now, it would be zero stars. About 3 months ago my feed became broken. It shows all of my catches at the top of my feed and then a few older posts after that. If I scroll way down I can find some new posts mixed in with mostly old posts. I have contacted support three times and I get an email back saying it’s a known issue, they are sorry and they are working on it. Then the support ticket is closed out. I’m sure it’s to satisfy a metric of how fast they close out support tickets. But the problem hasn’t been resolved. I’ve had to open three different support tickets and still no resolution. So I am done with the app. I’ll be looking for another app to connect with local anglers. Good luck if you download this.

    Was only good as a free app. Useless now unless you pay a ridiculous subscription fee. Half the information on the app is false and it doesn't work the other half of the time. Even on their website they boast a 4.9 star review for Google Play I'm seeing a 3.9

    By Fish On Crew
    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. ————<*((()()(()))(((>< :-)

  • Such a great resource!! Aug 25, 2020

    By crobbyboy
    I remember I originally got a Fishbrain account just because I wanted to post pictures of my fish but most of my followers on other my social media accounts didn’t really care about it, but then once I got on the app I realized how many other great features this app has outside of just a cool local community of other anglers! I’ve been able to learn and grow more in my fishing skill set and have caught so much more fish since being on this!!! Not only can I scroll through it for a couple hours just for entertainment, but I also am learning which colors and baits are working on which spots, and what gear I should be using to get the best action with my lures! I thoroughly enjoy and appreciate this app and the improvements I’ve made because of it.
  • 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!
  • Amazing app May 1, 2020

    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

    Very nice app, good features, with a nice layout. Unfortunately the price for the premium is just far too expensive (68.99GBP) for a year, in my own personal opinion, the premium features are not worth the price for what you unlock.
  • 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

  • Hooked on fishing but the latest update crashes Nov 12, 2019

    By StayingUpTooLate
    I just started fishing at the tail end of the summer and I think I am hooked! I never knew fishing could be so much fun! But the biggest contributor to my newfound passion is Fishbrain app. Seeing fish other people have caught, especially near where I live motivates me to go out there and try to hook some myself. It is an awesome tool that builds fishing community and one that promotes fishing in general. One point lessons by the pros are pretty nice too. I wish the shop and gear selections were much bigger though. Being able to purchase some of those right through the app would be nice, especially some of the hard to find lures perhaps. The latest update crashes the app as soon as it launches. I hope that will be fixed soon. Other than that I really enjoy Fishbrain.

  • Please... Jan 19, 2019

    By gifguy8881
    Could you guys make it so we can double tap a post to like it? Then, we can swipe through our feed faster. I just think it would make it easier to like a lot more posts faster. Also, I think that the fishbrain premium thing is nonsense, you guys could just have sponsers on the feed page and we are scolling, an ad would pop up and you guys could make as much money. I really wanna see where people caught their fish, otherwise the app if useless if you have to pay for fishing catch locations. Remember this is a fishing FORECAST app which allows us to see where all the fish are. Still hands down this is a great app and I still love to go on it. We have our own opinions so don’t think that mine should be taken seriously, this is just my thought of the app.

    The app is great. The only issues I have is when I click on directions keeps telling me I don't have Google maps installed which I do. The other issue is when you go to half these places they are on private property or there is no access point to them or its just give false info.

    The same thing happened to me as the last guy who left a review. The "Directions" function isn't working and the app is telling me that I don't have Google maps installed...which I obviously do. Other than that, the app is pretty decent.
  • Great community, App needs work. May 4, 2021

    Fishbrain is a great community. I’ve met and fished with several local anglers and always learning new tricks. Really great group of guys and gals. The folks at Fishbrain seem to be doing a good job of keeping the app updated, but always room for improvements. Some of my recommendations to make the experience better below. - The uploader always places the photos out of the order I uploaded causing me to have to edit each time after post. - The ability to keep your fishing spots private should be easier to do. It defaults by showing your exact location. You have to edit this with each post. - The notification section is still awkward. When you make a comment it’s easy to lose track on who responded to what. This is because the comment section doesn’t load the image you commented on. - The Russian girl activity has died down a bit, but still happens from time to time. I feel they should educate users to report users trying to phish for information better. I can imagine that less tech savvy users would fall for these types of online scams. All things said, it’s still the best option for anglers that want to share their catches with the fishing community. I’ve tried the others and always came back.

    It's a very useful app but extremely buggy. I installed an update and now it won't let me accept the terms and conditions to continue using the app. Everytime I click "continue" it says "something went wrong".
  • 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't seem to be getting the attention it needs!

    Solid functionality, but good luck logging in or changing your password. Their system for doing so simply does not work.

    Paid for three months of Fishbrain pro and although it’s useful, it lacks more granular filtering options that would make it truly amazing. As it is, I can’t find a way to filter for only recent catches. Instead, it shows every public catch ever recorded in the app, making for a cluttered map that has a lot of useless information. Yes, you can filter by month, but I’m not really interested in how many people caught fish in an area two years ago— I want to see what areas are active right now. Searching for a good fishing spot is also made more difficult by the fact that marinas, tackle shops etc are rendered in the same orange color as the “recent catch” pins. A visual way of distinguishing catches made from boats versus bank catches would also improve things— if you know you’re bank fishing, for example, it’d be great to be able to filter out boat catches on the map. What would also be really great is if the app could generate a list of best fishing spots within a certain distance from you based on the density of recent catch data, which could be filtered by species and style of fishing. As it stands it’s a good app, but with these improvements it could be perfect.
  • For the Record I love Fish Brain but.... Oct 15, 2019

    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.

    Keeps saying I don't have Google maps installed when I hit directions. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling and still have the same issue. It used to work just fine.
  • Support is bad Aug 11, 2021

    By Chrisk1162
    I’m giving this two stars because it used to be a good app. It helped me find some fishing spots when I first moved to Kansas City. If I were rating it based on how it performs now, it would be zero stars. About 3 months ago my feed became broken. It shows all of my catches at the top of my feed and then a few older posts after that. If I scroll way down I can find some new posts mixed in with mostly old posts. I have contacted support three times and I get an email back saying it’s a known issue, they are sorry and they are working on it. Then the support ticket is closed out. I’m sure it’s to satisfy a metric of how fast they close out support tickets. But the problem hasn’t been resolved. I’ve had to open three different support tickets and still no resolution. So I am done with the app. I’ll be looking for another app to connect with local anglers. Good luck if you download this.

    App used to be awesome. Now for some reason my catch location is always gulf of guinea. I live in NY. That's not even close. My other issue is no matter how I set my feed I get catches from very far away. Not even close to what I had set.

    Was only good as a free app. Useless now unless you pay a ridiculous subscription fee. Half the information on the app is false and it doesn't work the other half of the time. Even on their website they boast a 4.9 star review for Google Play I'm seeing a 3.9
