Ok, so I’ve had the app for almost a week now. I absolutely love the aesthetics, the layout and all the information provided for you. I am however on the verge of deleting the app because of some issues. When I open the app, it says reeling in the middle for well over 5mins before I can do anything. Also, when I tap the center to view major/minor feeding times they are blank for several minutes. Then when I switch between viewing weather info or lures it says reeling for another 3-5mins before allowing me to do anything. This is extremely frustrating when I’m out fishing and need to gather information quickly but I’m forced to stand there and wait multiple times for things to load. Please, please resolve this issue. This is hands down my favorite app for fishing times and I do not want to go back to one of the many others I’ve used in the past but if I am forced to continue waiting and waiting, I will delete and go back. This app is sincerely great, and I highly recommend it to anyone out there. The info accuracy and weather accuracy is hands down the best. Accu weather is my one and only weather source and has been for many many years. Again, I love this app and don’t want to go back to garbage wanna be’s so please resolve these issues so I can continue using my app. Thank you ladies and gents for the time and for the effort to fix whatever the issues are. I know you guys will take care of it.
I do not understand how the ratings are high on a day in the future (let’s say 3-7 days) and then when that day approaches the ratings will change. For example, when I looked at next weeks forecast Tuesday and Wednesday were high value days but now when I look at those days later in the week the rating is much lower. I thought the forecast was more or less based on solunar tables or some other standardized method. If I look at the forecast for next week, shouldn’t it also be the same if I check it tomorrow or the next day? For now I will rate it 4 stars, but I would like to be able to plan my week around the forecast.
Best tourney trail finish this year thanks to BassForecast
As a competitive kayak bass angler, BassForecast has become as important a tool as my rods, reels, and tackle. BassForecast helps my pre-fishing game plan immensely. Pairing the forecast up with my additional research of maps and satellite images allows me to make the most of my time on the water in the highest percentage areas. I set new personal bests in both largemouth and smallmouth bass and had my best statewide tournament trail finish this year. I absolutely have to attribute some of this success to my first fishing season using BassForecast, it has certainly helped me spend more time in the most productive water, throwing the most productive baits on any given day.
Decent app, but...
If your looking for a generalized idea of when Bass might be active or in the areas suggested to fish, this app is for you. If you’re looking for advanced or even intermediate skill level Bass fishing information, this app is something you more than likely know already. I gave it 3 stars because the features it has are very broad in terms. For example, if it’s a good day to fish, it will tell you holding spots where fish usually are, but, it also gives you a broad list of lures to use and how fast to use them. I feel the developers need to work on the holding points and lure/retrieval features a little more focused. If your a beginner however, then this is a great app to give you a general idea of what to do.
Great free version
I love the App. I kinda feel like the suggested baits are seasonal and not weather specific. I wish it had suggestions for multiple species! Also wish I didn’t have to pay for advanced version. Maybe roll an add bar at the bottom to cover the cost of memberships?
Good at making apps! Not at fishing!
I really thought when I purchased the app, it would have some detailed fishing info for my area. Instead you get “best” fishing times, and a generic map that shows where fish might be this time of year. The bait selection part is the same way. Anybody that spends time bass fishing, already knows what baits to use this time of the year. I really don’t see the advantage of having it. Whoever made it is obviously good at making apps and not a fisherman. Why not put lake levels for the selected area in the app? How about water temp for local lakes? How about if local lakes are releasing water? How about water color for local lakes? As far as I am concerned the best time to fish, is whenever you get a chance. Not when a app tells me it’s a good time to go. I should have researched it more before I bought it.
New Home for Bass Fishing
I just moved to a new town when I first downloaded BassForecast. I didn’t know much about the area and had no clue where I could fish. After some research I found a small lake with some promising locations. I used the app and made sure that I found the new spot just before the major evening bite. In less than a half hour I had caught three bass and one ended up being my PB for the summer. I’m convinced that BassForecast helped me have a great first experience at a new lake in a new town. Now I check the app every time I leave the house to fish.
Great app, but dropped rating for removing previous features.
2nd UPDATE: Rating restored. Finally got in contact with support and even exchanged emails with the co-founder, who was very personable and resolved all issues. UPDATE: Rating changed to 1 star for customer service/developer not following through with their offer. They replied to my previous review offering a free subscription in return for feedback. When I sent them an email, a ticket was opened, but I never received a response back (it’s been 2 weeks now) This app is the easiest to use out of all the fishing weather pattern apps. The free version even used to give you information on which land features to fish and what baits to use. With the new update, this has been taken away and only allowed for paid subscribers. I’ll probably pay for the subscription since it’s only $10/year (as of June 2019) and I enjoy the app.
Deleted app in 45 seconds
The second question asked when installing the app is "Tell your friends and family?" There is a button to accept this or you cannot prceed further, so I deleted the app. Why would I tell anyone about it before I have a chance to use it? This is forced gorilla marketing. Edit: I tried installing it again and it didn't ask that this time but installed successfully. Never did see the "skip" button though. Thanks anyways. I will check it out now.
Epic bonding experience with my son!!!!
My 5 year old son and I just got into bass fishing, downloaded BassForecast and saw it was an “EPIC” rated day...so we packed up our gear and headed out to fish a public pond. 10-15 min in my son decided to throw a whopper plopper and BOOM!! The biggest bass I ever saw smashed the it. It weighed 6.8 pounds and was half as long as my son. It was a great bonding experience and time to be a father. If it wasn’t for BassForecast telling us to go fish, I don’t think I would have this close relationship I have now with my son. Thank you.
Well Worth It
I purchased this app in March 2019. I was in a sporting goods store and over heard some other anglers bragging on the app. I loaded it to my phone that night. It began paying dividends the very next day. I’ll fish anytime, but what I found was the app was very accurate on the best feeding times. Being able to look 10 days into the future is very helpful. So many things in this app that will make your fishing trips successful. I highly recommend this app.
It was good
Ok so about a year ago the button at the bottom right (the one where it’s shows what lures to use and where) was free and that was my favorite part of the app (just getting into bass fishing it really helped) but then they made it a premium feature; yes the when to fish helps at times but I just think that they ruined the main purpose of the app, they did add the weather part but personally I don’t really use it, besides this major flaw I think that they did an amazing job making the app easy to use and to understand.
Eric Faucett Fishing Media Rates BassForecast a 10 out of 5!!!
I have been using BassForecast for over 2.5 years now! I have become such a big believer in the algorithm! When fishing a tournament, I use the fishing forecast that is predicted with the 10 Day Premium version to plan my tackle preparation. Basically, finesse gear on low rates days, and power fishing on high rated days, subject to Lake and seasonal patterns of course, but how the mood is predicted in the forecast makes such a big difference on what I’m going to offer the fish!! Must have and let’s be real, I lose more $15 crank baits in a trip than what this app costs!! And If I lose my phone in the lake, I can redownload from the cloud when I get my new phone haha Crankbaits just cost me more money every time I lose one 😂😂😂😂
The Real Deal.
I have been pleasantly surprised! I have learned to combine the knowledge I gain from this app with that of my sonar readings to find the fish during their most aggressive feeding hours. It helps me lock into a pattern that much quicker. There will always be those days where nothing seems to work but more often than not I have found this app to be very helpful.
This app has been shockingly accurate. I have strayed away from the lure and depth recommendations and find much less success. There have been very trips where it hasn’t been dialed in. Highly recommend downloading and subscribing to all features! I’ve tried other apps with much less success.
