About this app

LakeMonster is an app designed to serve the fishing and recreational boating communities by providing a simple interface to find current lake conditions for thousands of lakes across the world. Each lake has its own page containing information on past and current water temperatures, weather conditions and forecasts (wind speed/direction, air temperature, pressure), and maps showing recently acquired satellite imagery, which can be used to identify ice conditions, water levels, and water color/clarity. Users are also able to provide information or ask questions on the Community Posts section which is provided on each lake page.

Use LakeMonster to:

Determine the current water temperatures for lakes in your area

Determine current and future lake conditions including air temperature, wind speed/direction, and pressure

View recent natural color satellite imagery to view water levels, ice on/off, water color, and water clarity conditions

Determine how busy lakes are for those including live video streams

Search our catalog of thousands of lakes to learn more about your favorite lakes and discover new ones near and far

Own a bait shop? Marina? Guiding Service? Waterfront Restaurant? Rental Service? Promote your local business on LakeMonster

Post information on your latest trip to the lake, or ask questions from the user community.

Add your favorite lakes to your dashboard for faster and easier access to conditions on your favorite lakes, and receive push notifications when a new water temperature, natural color image, or post has been added.

Anglers, recreational boaters, kayakers/canoers, and beachgoers all have similar lake information needs. In winter, ice anglers come to LakeMonster to watch water temperatures drop and natural color satellite images show their favorite lakes freeze over to anticipate when they can begin icefishing. In spring, open water fisherman use LakeMonster to find “ice-out” on their favorite lakes to target Northern Pike, determine when to get the boat out of storage, and watch water temperatures rise during the crucial walleye spawning season. Recreational water sport enthusiasts anxiously check LakeMonster to see water temperatures rise—and to determine when they can hang up the wetsuit for the year. During the busy summer months, LakeMonster is used by all to check water levels, temperatures, and water color and clarity conditions. Livestreaming webcams at popular lakes can help boaters determine which lake is quieter by viewing wave conditions and checking out the traffic at the boat ramp. Checking the wind speed and direction helps jet skiers and wakeboarders find the calm side of the lake. As summer turns into fall, everyone is checking LakeMonster to see which lakes are suffering from harmful algal blooms, which lake levels are dropping, and anglers are again constantly checking water temperatures—this time to see temperatures drop, sending perch and walleye into a feeding frenzy. And once again, ice anglers are anxiously waiting for those temperatures to drop down into the 30’s and keeping an eye on the natural color imagery to see when ice starts forming on their favorite lakes. Before LakeMonster, finding all of the information needed to make boating and angling decisions was a nearly impossible task for most lakes, and would require visiting multiple apps and sites to retrieve that information. You shouldn’t need a degree in data science to find this valuable information. We at LakeMonster created an easy-to-use app and website to retrieve and compile the most up-to-date information on lake conditions aimed at helping users make boating and angling decisions. Providing a single page for each lake is also great for both local businesses and potential customers, as you are able to find information on fishing guides and lodges at your destination, where to pick up bait and tackle, rent kayaks, or enjoy a post-lake day meal.

TLDR; decent info, bad experience Ux is AWFUL for this app. No way to contact the developer. One of the worst screens is when you try to log in. There are individual fields for each of the phone digits. If you click in the middle, there isn't a natural way to back up. If you type in a number and need to correct it, you must reselect that field, delete, reselect again and retype the correct number. After all this, there isn't a clear path forward with the code it texts you.

Sorry about the issue, we are a small team and it takes some time to release updates. We changed the way to sign in and create a profile. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, we hope you enjoy using LakeMonster after this. Our website is www.lakemonster.com if you are looking for lake information now.

Crashes every time you touch anything. 1 Unable to correct profile error. 2 Crashes when you touch a lake photo. 3 Have to enter phone number each time. 4 Needs too many permissions in areas unrelated to the operation of the app. Had to uninstall it. You have a great idea but you should have worked out a majority of problems before presenting it to the public.
