"The Tackle Box" allows anglers to have instant access to all sorts of helpful information before hitting the water. You'll find everything from fishing regulations to access locations, all at the palm of your hand. The map-based interface also makes the app even more easy to use.

Other cool and creative features include...

  • Pan and zoom options to find a water; OR search by name!
  • Driving directions to all state-owned boating/fishing access sites.
  • Option to go offline when there's no cell service.
