What is Fishbrain - Social Fishing Intelligence?

Called ‘Facebook for Fishermen’ and ‘Instagram for Fishing’, the Fishbrain app is specialized social media, catering to anglers. Fishbrain is rated 4 years or older, but is best for teen and adult users.  It is available in both the App Store and the Google Play Store and features ads and in-app purchases.

 

Users can consult Fishbrain for fishing information such as finding out where the local fish are feeding as well as to connect with other anglers and log their own catches to share with others.

 

With an interface that functions similar to Facebook, with a look similar to Instagram, Fishbrain is definitely a specialized social media platform made just for anglers. With over 3 million users, and 2 million catches logged on the app, Fishbrain is the largest social networking and utility app for anglers.

 


Fishbrain allows users to find new fishing spots, discover hot spots in new areas, or areas to which they’re traveling, learn what the local fish are eating, what species can be found in particular areas, as well as learn new techniques to improve their fishing game.

 

Fishbrain started in Sweden, but now boasts 74% of users hailing from the United States, with the second largest user base coming out of Austrailia. Perhaps the most convenient aspect of Fishbrain is that it’s not simply confined to a specific species or fishing style nor is it just for fresh or saltwater fishing.

 

Anglers of all types can use the app to access and share information with the tap of a finger. Simply put, Fishbrain is a fast and easy way to log and access fishing activity.


When users join Fishbrain, they’re asked to answer a few questions about their fishing preferences, such as a favorite species of fish and preferred fishing method, which are then plugged into Fishbrain’s algorithm to suggest content of interest.

 

Fishbrain’s platform is set up similar to Facebook, even serving content in a similar fashion, with users opening the app to a timeline. Users have the opportunity to befriend fellow anglers on the platform, whose updates and catches then populate their newsfeed.

 

In addition to the social aspect of the Fishbrain app, users can drill down into a variety of menus to further hone their fishing prowess.

 

The Explore menu, at the bottom of the screen, opens a GPS-enabled map, which zooms into a user’s location, populating the map with fish icons, which represent both fisheries and member catches.

 

When a user taps on a catch, they’ll be shown the location of the catch, in addition to catch information, such as fishing method, bait/lure used, species and size, in addition to weather condition and any additional user comments.

 

Users can quickly add their own catches to the app by pressing the plus sign icon at the bottom of their screen, which allows them to upload a photo of their catch in addition to comments and details.

Is Fishbrain - Social Fishing Intelligence safe for my kids?

Parents should know that Fishbrain is free to download and use but features ads to offset costs, as well as a host of in-app purchases ranging in price from $5.99 to $59.99.

Premium users, at a rate of $5.99 per month or $39.99 per year, receive access to more detailed information within the app and on the platform.

Fishbrain allows users to make connections with other anglers, interact with other platform users, share information about catches, share location data pertinent to catches and connecting to local communities, as well as make digital purchases within the app.

Parents should be aware that Fishbrain asks permission to access location data, which is needed to log catches. As the platform connects members by geographical location, users are automatically added to their local Fishbrain County, a sort of Facebook group chat room associated with location.

Parents should monitor their teen’s activity on the platform, while users have not commented or complained of abuses it’s always a good idea for parents to monitor social media interactions.

Once in the app, Fishbrain users have the opportunity to join as many Fishbrain Counties as they wish, making it especially helpful when planning any upcoming fishing focused travel.

Fishbrain is a clever use of technology and social hive mind when it comes to fishing. As long as parents set spending expectations and monitor their teen’s activity, the Fishbrain app is safe for teens.
