Bassmaster Magazine and Bassmaster.com have joined forces with www.scoutlookweather.com to release a new fishing-specific weather app for Android and iPhone markets.
“Bassmaster is delighted to offer this feature-rich app to every fisherman, regardless of whether they are chasing bass or any other species of gamefish," said B.A.S.S. CEO Bruce Akin. "ScoutLook has become the go-to weather resource for outdoorsmen, and this app will help deliver on Bassmaster’s key goal to help people catch more and bigger fish."
The Bassmaster Fishing Weather App, found at http://www.scoutlookweather.com/mobileApps.php, simplifies planning for professional and recreational anglers alike by merging world-class weather information, wind mapping, solunar times, tides and moon, and hourly barometric changes all in one free app.
Fishermen who wish to add logging capability can download the Bassmaster/ScoutLook Fishlog app (www.scoutlookweather.com/mobileApps.php), which includes all the functions of the basic app, plus a simple logging tool. Catch a fish, snap a photo, and capture all weather conditions at the moment and time of the catch automatically.
The Fishlog app, available for a one-time fee of $3.99, enables the user to edit, manage, view and sort logs online at www.scoutlookweather.com. Logs can then be exported to Excel, or sorted by any weather or moon condition, lure type or water condition.
The new free app displays a map with the user’s precise position and weather conditions. With ScoutLook’s unique DriftPoint Wind Map, users can “see the wind” for up to 72 hours at any fishing location for optimal planning. Any location saved on the app is stored and saved in a free online account at www.scoutlookweather.com.
