New App Will Aid Alaska Anglers

Alaska Fishtopia App


Admittedly, I’ve never been a big app fan, but I do have my share of apps dotting screen (and killing my battery whenever I do use them).

But I gotta say it’s pretty cool that there’s an Alaska-specific app for anglers, which was created by Soldotna’s Jim Voss.  Check out the report from the Associated Press:

The app includes guide information, local events and the latest fish counts from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, said Voss, a fishing guide and the owner of Alaska Boat Rental in Soldotna. The idea for the app was to have the vital information anglers need all in one spot, he said.

The app also hosts the fishing exchange tool, where anglers can post wanted spots on fishing trips and guides can post available seats on boats. This tool seeks to fill the place of what guides have largely been doing by word-of-mouth.

“If (guides) can reach an angler, somebody out there is willing to go fishing at some price,” Voss said.

At Apple’s App Store it costs $1.99 to download.
