Fishing Electronics: ANGLR Delivers Unique Angle

Fishing Electronics: ANGLR Delivers Unique Angle

If you like to collect data to help you improve your success on the water, the Angler app may be just the device to add to your fishing electronics.

I like where this app is going. Anglr app (no, that's not a typo) has a device, called Tracker, that you latch onto your rod, and it captures all sorts of data, like number of casts, number of hookups and number of landed fish  —  automatically.

You can check out the info on your phone or transfer it to your laptop. And if you do import it to your computer, the data populates a very slick dashboard that graphically lays out your day — the successes and fails — so you can make better choices in similar conditions.

There's a lot to this system: a free Anglr app you can download now at an app store; the Tracker, which is a $129 investment; and Anglr Experience, the laptop dashboard app, which is $4.99/month.

One of my favorite features is the drop-pin: the button is on the Tracker, just in front of the reel, so it's so easy to drop unique pins even while you're fighting a fish!

The system isn't only for hard-core tournament anglers who need to break down a lake or body of water quickly. It's just as useful to weekend warriors who love their sport and want to look at it from a different perspective. This is the way fishing is going so you might as well get aboard now and be ahead of the curve. — John Geiger
