FISHMAPS – FISHBUOY Mobile is a map-centric application that uses your fish catch locations to help you build trends in your data. FISHMAPS help you plan where and when to fish using a simple yet powerful Timeline/Map Filter.

MARINE WEATHER – FISHBUOY connects you to NOAA marine data for the Great Lakes and Oceans surrounding North America. Within one application, you have direct access to real-time marine buoy data, forecasted wind conditions, wave heights, water currents, marine winds, surface temperatures and more!
WEATHER FORECAST – FISHBUOY integrates North American weather data from Environment Canada to help fishermen understand the conditions they are heading into. Weather layers include Doppler radar (precipitation and intensity), wind direction, ambient air temperature and cloud cover.
REAL-TIME WATER DATA – Automatically get water (levels, flows, temps, turbidity)*, weather (wind direct/speed, pressure, rain amounts, moon phase, etc.) from an active, real-time monitoring network of over 15,000 stations across North America.
PERSONAL GROUPS - You have a close group of fishing buddies and only share details about your day with them. Normally, you send them a photo of your catch and they always ask about water conditions and what color worked best. Sound familiar? NOW, you have the ability to share all this information and more with a single photo. Share with buds, don't hold back!
FISHBUOY COMMUNITY – Depending on which camp you sit in, you either want to keep your photos private - or - you want to share your success with others. Everyone has their preference and FISHBUOY offers solutions for both.
o Private Photos - When you take a photo, you have the option to keep your fish catch information private and only share it with people you want.
o Public Photos - Want to help out your fellow fishermen? Share your fish catch for bragging rights? FISHBUOY offers you the ability to share your photos publicly.
FISHBUOY GALLERY – Access your complete history of fish catch data via FISHMAPS, or simply access your data via the gallery to find and review any of your personal fish catches.
Within no time, you will begin to see trends in how fish react to changing water and weather conditions, moon phases and atmospheric pressure using location and species-specific data that you collected yourself!
Stop relying on generic fishing calendar predictions and start relying on species and location-specific data that considers actual fishing conditions. With FISHBUOY, you build your knowledge using physical and biological sciences that are relevant to you and your network of fishing friends.
