Android owners - You gotta get "My fish Advisor"

Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

Android owners - You gotta get "My fish Advisor"

Post by wasilvers » 06 Sep 2011, 14:09

I have a few fishing programs on my phone, but today a friend told me about "My Fishing Advisor" - I thought, "Not another best time to fish..." But this one is actually helpful. You tell it about your lake, temps, weather, fish and it ranks different styles of fishing, you pick one, then drill down to what you are really fishing (points, humps, breaks, stumps, docks, etc.). It tells you best techniques, best baits, best colors. I tested this on some really bad weather days and it came up with 'excellent' for the styles of fishing that was catching fish.

Best of all, It's free. (I'd prefer to pay to get rid of ads, but still - free is free)

Nice, I use that for hunting. I see the most deer early in the evening when the cows/sheep are up and grazing in the afternoon.

I found it on the market place yesterday.
I tried inputting info from last weekend for the lake I fished. The majority of the fish we caught were considered "excellent" in conditions and baits on the app.

This gets you there too. I have used this web market to install to my phone before - works pretty slick.

MFA is a great app for finding where when and where to fish. I use that and My Fishing Companion to record all my info and locations. So far, haven't had the need for any other fishing apps

It keeps telling me that it is the perfect time to go fishing. Too bad my boat is broken

The next time won't be the first time I've made the same mistake twice.
All the romance of fishing exists in the mind of the angler and is in no way shared by the fish.

Disclaimer: I am the guy who made the MFA app. I don't know Wasilvers, but I do live in southern Wisconsin. I'm in La Crosse on the upper Mississippi, and yes, my boat is tin. =)

I occasionally do a little googling to see what people are saying about My Fishing Advisor. I'm glad to hear you guys are enjoying the app. There are some interesting improvements in the works, but the plan is still to keep it free, and probably offer a paid version with no ads. I'm working on the iPhone version now, which will keep me too busy to actually fish for a while.

For those who have trouble finding it on the Market, that could be a compatibility issue with your phone. The app requires Android 2.2 or higher, so if you've got a device on Android 2.1 the market will hide the app. Depending on your phone and cell company you may be able to update the system software on your phone.

Tight lines,

Paul
