Next-generation fishing app available

Fish-finding mobile app BassForecast is now available in the App Store, the company said.

The app provides all searchable, location-specific, relevant data, in real-time- to anyone planning a fishing trip — whether at work, on the go or at home. Now even kids can actively participate in the planning process.

Unlike other fishing apps or using solunar tables alone, BassForecast takes into account how water temperature affects bass feeding patterns, which translate to determining the optimal time for fishing. Additionally, the proprietary algorithm, powered by data from AccuWeather®, combines historical weather data, future weather predictions and real-time conditions to provide the BassForecast Rating (BFR).

The BFR lets fishermen know how active bass will be on any given day based on the science of bass feeding behavior.

BassForecast helps plan bass fishing trips just like the pros, so you can catch more and bigger bass. BassForecast dynamically adjusts traditional solunar ratings for weather variables that have been scientifically proven to affect largemouth bass feeding behavior to produce a BassForecast Rating (BFR) from 1 to 10 for the next ten days. BassForecast is available to download for iOS on the App Store, and is coming soon to Android.
