As a first of its kind, My Fishing Journal Widget offers widget-based access for quickly logging catches. This app places a priority on quickly logging catches so you can spend more time fishing! This is a full featured trial version that allows you to log 8 fish. If you like the app, purchase the unlocker to unlock the app to be able to add a virtually unlimited number of fish.

Trial Version

This trial version has the full set of features for the app. It is limited to logging 8 fish. Instead of having a Trial and Full version, there is an app for unlocking the trial version that allows you to add a virtually unlimited number of fish. The advantage of an unlocking app is that your data is preserved, and you get to try out all of the features of the app.

My Fishing Widget has several innovative features:

Home Screen Widget

Two widget sizes are available (4x3 and 1x1). To my knowledge this is the only widget for logging catches for fisherman.

Fish Counts

The widget displays a count of your total number of fish logged. The count updates based on the filter you have applied.

Filtering System

Innovative filtering system allows you to filter fish based on many different factors (Fish type, place caught, technique used, and date parameters).

Defining Fishing Places

Places allow you to set up places that you fish. The zoom level that you set works with the filter so that when you filter by a place (such as Patoka Lake for instance), that it will include only fish that have a GPS location within that recorded view. This is incredibly useful for displaying how many fish you have caught at a particular place and displaying this information on a map. Setting up places also allows you to quickly access weather for the fishing place.

Innovative Mapping

Map clustering through the mapping feature clusters catches together in a single marker when catches are near each other. It will put a count of the catches on the cluster marker. Simply click on the cluster to zoom in and see exactly where the fish were.

My Live Well

The Live Well displays detailed information on your catches. If unfiltered, it will show all your catches. If filtered (by Largemouth Bass for instance), it will display only the fish that meet the filter criteria. The Live Well allows you to perform many functions.

Photo Album

The Photo Album is also innovative in that it categorizes fish by fish type and only includes fish based on your filter. So, if you want to look at pictures of Largemouth Bass that you caught at Patoka Lake in the last 3 days, simply apply this filter and open the photo album! If unfiltered, you can get a quick count of all the different types of fish you have caught by simply opening the photo album.


You can quickly access current weather conditions and forecasts through the National Weather Service through the widget. Additionally, you can quickly choose any of your fishing places to get the weather at that location.

    Great app and great idea but the maps and weather feature don't always work. Other than that I'm happy!

    I fish a lot. only downloaded app for two days and already full. Good idea but more pointless to download for eight fish.
