As a Maine fisherman, I understand the need for a simpler way to determine what the regulations are for the water you want to fish. The current rule book can be difficult to use and understand. I’m not the only one who feels this way. Recently, George Smith wrote a great article about how complicated and confusing the rule book is and the need for a change. You can read his article here.
In early 2015 I was on a trip to Eustis, Maine and decided to do a little fishing. I wasn’t sure of the rules for the water I was considering, so I looked to the rule book. It was so difficult to understand that I got frustrated and didn’t end up fishing. It was then that I decided there had to be a better way to quickly and clearly determine what the rules were for any give water I wanted to fish.
I thought about how much I use my phone to look up various information and I realized that building a simple application could be the answer. I had built other software currently used across the United States and, though I’d never done a phone app, I was up for the challenge. As a result, I created the New 2016 Maine Fishing Regulations App. An application built by a Maine fisherman for Maine fishermen. Below are a just a few of the benefits the application has to offer.
Easy to Use
The application is designed to be simple and easy to use. With just a click of a button, the rules are right at your fingertips.
Multiple Search Options
The application allows you to search by water or county to quickly determine the rules.
Use in remote areas
There is no need for internet or cell reception because the database is stored directly on the mobile device.
Access depth maps for many lakes and ponds in State of Maine.
The application is still in it’s final test stages and will be available to the general public by early April, 2016.
