Fishbrain brings fishing rules and regulations to anglers with the acquisition of the Fish Rules app

We at Fishbrain know the importance of fishing regulations for conservation efforts. We also know how frustrating understanding these regulations can be when fishing for different species and on different waters. 

Fishbrain is always looking to remove obstacles, like confusing regulations, that keep anglers off the water, so we couldn't be more excited to announce the acquisition of the popular app Fish Rules.

Fishbrain is the number one fishing app in the world and now proudly features the information provided by the number one app for fishing regulations.

Fish Rules was founded in 2011 and is the brainchild of Rick Blalock and Albrey Arrington. The pair were on their way home from a fishing trip and came up with the concept: a single platform where anglers can check local regulations wherever they are, thus staying compliant and contributing to fisheries’ sustainability. 

New features and data coming to your Fishbrain account on both the app and web:

  • Regulations: Saltwater and freshwater fishing regulations within an easy to understand format. With a glance, know if a fish is in season, how many you can keep, how big they have to be, and more.

  • Fishing spots: Saltwater fishing regulations for Federal and State waters including: Maine, Texas, California, Hawaii, the US Caribbean, and the Bahamas. Now includes freshwater regulations for: Florida, Alabama, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Hawaii.

  • GPS controlled: Fish Rules uses your phone's GPS and calendar to show only the regulations you need. For example, out at sea with no signal? Manually select your fishing location to see relevant regulations.

  • Quick fish ID: Crisp illustrations and expert photos of similar species help you identify your catch. Swipe an image to see identification clues and additional photos.

This new comprehensive list of rules and regulations will provide an unparalleled experience for all Fishbrain members. No other app will allow you to explore new fishing areas, find perfect baits and fish at complete ease, knowing you are a legal and ethical angler.
