Good morning!

I am looking to document my fishing this year, and I want to find a method I will actually keep up with. Does anyone use any fishing log/journal apps, and if so, which ones and how much do you like them?

Other ideas for a non-detail oriented guy are appreciated as well:)

Thanks very much!

Hmmm, non-detail guy huh? Well then, ignore any suggestions UJC offers... roflmao

I dont mess with keeping notes, but if I did it would be a journal (diary), which is probably the easiest method...anything more detailed will require information from more process minded individuals, such as UJC...He will amaze you with his notes...or at least he amazed me with his detail knowledge of past lake forays, particular spots, fish caught, etc...

I use the pages app on my iPhone, that way it is with me all the time and I can journal as I fish with the dictation feature. It works great for me. I can insert pictures of my graph or fish that I catch, or anything else.
When I get home, it is already on my iPad and I can edit or print if I want to. I started this several years ago and am happy with the results.

I created my own simple excel spreadsheet that allows me to keep track of the things that I want to keep track of plus areas to put notes in. It also has some automatic calculations so I can see my year's totals at a glance. While I'm on the lake, I will put certain information in a text message to myself so then I can put them into my spreadsheet whenever I get the chance.

Bass Fishing resource has a form you can download and write in your information. Also check out, http://www.taysys.com/ I have used in the past when I fished tournaments a lot. Loved it just didn't keep up with the updates as I changed PC's.

I used an Excel spread sheet for years until I learned Access, then I made a searchable database.

Impressive. For some reason, I don't do databases.

The best thing is not to write it down at all... Writing it down leaves a paper trail that people can use to disprove your fishing stories. Believe me sir, the fishing log I make up in my mind is significantly better than any I could record factually. Example: In my written fishing log, I caught a 2 pound bass after three hours of fishing and kicked a rod over the side while landing it. BUT.. in the fishing log in my brain, that bass was 6 pounds and he sh*t out a diamond ring worth 4k when I got him into the boat.

I'm telling you.. my way is better.. laugh

I take pictures with the GPS on that way when I put them on my PC I can just click and see where they were caught . Just make sure you remove the GPS info before posting any pics smile

I use quick memo on my phone and it has an application to take and insert photos. I do it for every trip on any lake that I go to. I also use it to make notes when I use google earth to help me locate new water that I am wanting to scout. I insert GPS coordinates that I can relate to when I am out on the water.
