    "Find places to fish"


    Fishing has been said to be a truly relaxing experience. For those looking for a place to fish, Fishbrain brings a social network for fishing enthusiasts right to your iOS or Android device. Once you’re done registering through your Facebook or your e-mail address, you’re able to connect to other fishermen or see what they’ve caught or check out the map near your area to see what fishing spots are available, including info on the species to be found and caught.


    Fishbrain features an active community of fishermen, most of which give detailed info. Maps are also accurate, and you can search for other locations near you.


    The best features are hidden behind the Premium paywall, so if you actually want to post a photo of your catch or find out useful info, be prepared to pay up. There are stability issues in the iOS version, with infrequent crashing.
