Fish Smarter

I’ve fished all my life. I mainly fished freshwater the first half of my life, and now primarily saltwater. Regardless of where you fish, there are many things you can do before each trip to be better prepared and fish smarter.


Before I started Fishing Status, I would have to visit many different websites to get the latest fishing reports, spots, weather, etc. for my area, just to get an idea of what I might catch and when to go. The main reason I started Fishing Status was for my own database of the latest fishing information to have at my fingertips. Over the last couple of months, I have been working hard to provide you with a single interface to view your local fishing forecast and all of the latest info within 50 miles of your target area.


To date, you now have access to the following from the Home page:

  • ·         Local Map
  • ·         Fishing Forecast
  • ·         Target Species
  • ·         Recommended Lures
  • ·         Weather
  • ·         Moon Phase
  • ·         Latest Reports
  • ·         Latest Spots


Based on actual fishing reports from captains and users in your area, the Fishing Status algorithm computes the percentage chance you have of catching specific species of fish. With the ability to add additional information about the conditions of the area, we have used a scientific formula to recommended colors and lures that target your local species of fish.


Here is a video of how it works:

Does it work?


It does for me!

If you do not have much information for your area, please contribute and add reports and spots to improve local information.


Over the next few months, we will be adding many new features, including more lures and species to our database, wind and wave data, and more.


If you have any suggestions, please let us know!
