About this app

Introducing fishing tournaments through MyCatch, adding a new level of excitement for anglers while still contributing to fisheries research and conservation.

In 2020, tournaments everywhere were cancelled leaving many competitive anglers with limited options. So we started testing catch-photo-release tournaments on MyCatch to see what our anglers’ thought, and the verdict is in – they love them! So we are moving full speed ahead with app based tournaments as part of the MyCatch experience.

MyCatch was first released in 2018 as a way for anglers to track their catches and at the same time help fisheries biologists by providing important catch data. From a Citizen Science perspective, these new app based tournaments raise the bar again, providing high resolution fisheries data so researchers can improve their understanding of this important resource.

And from a conservation standpoint, this is also a big step forward as fish can be measured and then released back into the water in less than a minute, replacing the need for a livewell. Once the photo has been taken, it is automatically sent to the MyCatch server where it is reviewed for accurate length and the correct species, and then pushed to a live leaderboard where anglers can see where they rank in near real time.

“Our promise to anglers is that Secret Spots Stay Secret,” says Sean Simmons, Founder and President and Angler’s Atlas and MyCatch. “Every research team we work with must sign a data sharing agreement that sets the terms of use for the data, and data is anonymized before it is provided to the researcher. The goal is to protect the privacy of our anglers while providing fisheries biologists with critical data to better understand the state of our fisheries.”

For anglers, the app also provides useful statistics to keep track of your catches, such as number of fish caught, catch rate, species and specific details around each catch.

My Catch is produced by Angler’s Atlas, an online platform that has catalogued hundreds of thousands of waterbodies, and helps anglers explore lakes, rivers and oceans with detailed maps, tips and local fishing information.

The app runs smoothly enough and in terms of a straightforward fishing log, it's one of the better ones. However, it should really include the option to document weather data, i.e solunar, barometric pressure, wind, etc. And be able to analyze trends. This feature is missing from most of the fishing log apps out there.

not getting better, compared to the web site details, it is not really worth it except to track things. need to add filters to the app for hotspots shared, as well there are links to the regs? I could not find it., only general provincial regs, not species limits.

A good app for finding fishable water with useful links to regulations. But after the last update all of the freshwater lakes near me (lower mainland BC) show as being stocked with salt water fish. Also, when downloading additional maps of a lake the app doesn't recognize any of the PDF reading apps installed on my phone so I can't view them. EDIT: developer has fixed these issues.
