About this app

BassForecast will make you a better bass angler. In our Pro Angler catch rate study, 68% more Bass were caught per hour than the average during top 20% BassForecast Rated days and a whopping 305% more during top 10% rated days.

Designed exclusively for avid Bass Anglers and powered by AccuWeather, BassForecast analyzes many variables proven to affect Bass feeding behavior to produce a BassForecast Rating (BFR) from 1 (very tough conditions) to 10 (excellent conditions), for each day over the next 10 days…for any location worldwide.

Knowing the feeding mood of the fish helps you in 2 big ways:
#1 – Our rating system helps you plan 10 days in advance to be fishing during the highest rated days, which increases your odds.
#2 – Our new Adapted Patterns section helps you figure out bass catching patterns faster…even on low rated, tough days. How many times have you left the lake wondering what you could have done differently? BassForecast Adapted Patterns offers Location, Presentation and Bait Tips, dynamically adjusted to each day’s conditions, rating and season.
Most importantly, BassForecast automatically updates its Ratings and Tips based on real-time weather forecasts & conditions. Just enter your desired fishing locations and BassForecast does all the work for you.

To develop its proprietary BassForecast Rating system, BassForecast researched temperature transfer reports from water engineers and bass feeding behavior research reports from fishery biologists. The system analyzes past actual and future forecast temperatures applying the Temperature Time Lag Effect© because water temps LAG air temps. It also adjusts for seasonal hours of daylight, wind speed & direction, moon phases, peak feeding periods, sky conditions, rain….and atmospheric frontal conditions since Bass feed more actively during a rapidly falling barometer and less actively following a rapidly rising barometer.

Everything you need to plan the most effective Bass fishing trip are in this app! And now ALL users are provided an automatic, No-Commitment & Risk-Free, 5 Day Trial of BassForecast Premium.

Has of 12/23/23, is literally unusable. App is stuck in a "There is an update available" bug of some sort. Check the app store, and it is running the most accurate version. Force Stopped the app. Not a fix. Uninstalled and reinstalled. Not a fix. Restarted the phone. Not a fix. And that update available notification locks the app. You can't use the app at all with that notification present it. You can't cancel it, or side step it. Until it's fixed, the app is currently, literally not usable

Overall I like the app for bringing all the various conditions and considerations into one place. Not sure the ratings actually align with my experience on the water, but as a general guide for comparing which lakes might be better on a given day I try to use it. Still needs improvement in some basic areas like the brief conditions summary when looking at a list of lakes. It doesn't display the whole summary and there's no way to drill into it. The weather section is also not always accurate.

Generally speaking, I've really enjoyed using the app. I even upgraded and bought the yearly subscription, which I think was very reasonably priced. I've only more recently started to really dive into bass fishing so I can appreciate any potential tips and tricks I can get. That's exactly what this app does. App runs great and is very easy to use and navigate. Well worth the download
