The IGFACatchLog puts in-depth analysis of your fishing efforts right at your fingertips!

  • With just the click of a button or a snap of a picture, you can store and organize your own personal catch history to find out where and when your catching is hot.
  • A first ever Visual Identification fish component can help you identify your catch.
  • You can share the photos of your catch instantly on Facebook or Twitter.
  • Create custom reports on the website showing you where, when, and what you caught during all your fishing trips (remember that the only information shared with fisheries scientists is the broad geographic zone of your catches).
  • You can provide catch data to fisheries managers so they can help make fishing better for you in the future.
  • You can quickly access the IGFA Mobile App and Florida Fishing Regulations to give you the information that you need, while on the water.
