Sign in to queue


GitHub_LearnMoreFishAngler is a startup based in South Florida that has a cross-platform mobile app for fishermen to log and share their catches. The app seeks to increase the angler’s overall experience with the rollout of features that enable anglers to record, forecast, and increase their fishing skill level. The collection and segmentation of fishing data will pave the way for anglers to accurately target species like a pro.
