Fishing With Your iPhone

Okay, so the iPhone and iPad aren’t smart enough (yet) to actually catch a fish, but now they can be a very helpful tool on your next Orange Beach fishing charter trip.

The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council has released an exciting new, free app to provide current commercial and recreational regulations for the federal waters in the Gulf. And from this app on your iPhone or iPad you can also access useful fish identification information, measurement guidelines, details on closures and sanctuaries, and important phone numbers.

You can download the app at the App store from your iPhone or iPad, search for “Gulf Council,” and click on the Council logo. And you can preview the app from your computer with this link -

Now to put that app to work – Let’s go fishing! When you book your next Brett/Robinson vacation, be sure to check out local fishing charters who can help you find a great spot to drop a line and hopefully reel in a big catch.
