FishingMobile, with Two Minute Tackle

Tidal Chart

Contents

The Fishing Mobile app automatically detects your location and show you the matching weather, tides and solunar data for that location.

However, for this to work correctly, the following must be true:

  1. GPS should be enabled on your phone (and for iPhone/iPad you must grant the permission to use it when prompted by the app).
  2. You need a “line of sight” to GPS satellites. (i.e. A clear view of the sky.)
Instead of GPS, you could be connected to a WiFi network that we can use to detect your location – but this is less accurate and unreliable. We also have to wait longer to detect the lack of GPS signals before trying to get a WiFi location lock, it's not a perfect process.

Our app also lets you save custom locations for ease of use. The locations you store will be shared between the weather, tides and solunar screens.

This guide shows you how to add a custom tides location, this is a bit more involved than than just saving a location because there is an additional step for choosing your preferred tidal station.

Read on for a step by step guide with screenshots.
