Grabbing that rod and heading out for some quality time in the fresh air is fun, adventurous and exciting.  While fishing in itself is simply fun, wouldn’t it be even better if you could pick the right spots for the right fish and get tips and tricks right at your fingertips?  Other than having the best fishing captains with a charter to get you there… you could always try a fishing app.

There are plenty of apps out there, as we all know, and the world of fishing is certainly no different.  Apps can be a great way to really get used to the idea of fishing in your local area and you’ll find quite a few that will help you focus on where to go for the right kinds of fish, what weather is best for fishing, tips on the bait to use, etc.

Fishing apps to use

There are quite a few out there, all offering different perks and benefits that can make your experience all the better.  While this isn’t an exhaustive list, some of the best ones to make your experience richer include:


This app is great for when you want to join the angling community.  It is designed to show off your catch and interact with other users to get experience and opinions.  You can also find listings for all sorts of fishing spots and angling tips.


With over 1 million fishing spots on this app, this one is good for when you want to really find the right fishing spot near you.  You can also find out what kind of fish to catch in each spot, and even recommendations on bait to make sure you get the catch you’re looking for.

GoFree Hooked

A true complete resource, this app allows you to save photos of the fish that you catch and detailed records so that you can back in time with this log and see what you did to get the catch you wanted.  Great for those looking to really get into the world of fishing and learn from their own experiences.  It also allows you to compete with other anglers for the best catches, which is fun for those who like the competitive world.

Something to keep in mind

Apps are great and all, and we truly encourage anglers to make use of them for all of the right reasons.  However, they also have their limitations.  When you’re looking to enjoy a relaxed, stress-free and fun fishing experience from start to finish, hiring a fishing charter is the best way to guarantee it.

Not only will you have experienced local anglers and captains at your service, you won’t need to rely on following a GPS, worrying about the weather, or even if you’re in the right spot.  Galveston Fishing Charters will take care of all of it for you so that you can focus more on enjoying quality time with your family or friends, enjoy your fishing experience or maybe checking out the other fantastic features of the apps.

There’s no right or wrong way to fish (other than not following the fishing laws and regulations), but when you really want to make the most out of what it has to offer, consider combining your preferred angling app with a fishing charter.
