Fish Rules is an extraordinary little app that gives you regulations and rules based on the species of fish you catch. This includes size limits, bag limits, and more. For those just starting off with fishing, be aware that local DNR branches are typically pretty strict with regulations. Fish Rules currently covers areas in Texas, the Carolinas, and Florida.
If you live in an area that Fish Rules supports, it's a must have for anyone that wants to make sure they're abiding by local law.

FishTales is a diary and journal that allows you to log all your fishing catches as well as everything that's in your tackle box.

From there you can rate your catches, photograph them, tag them at locations, and even pair them with what lures you used.
If you want a way to track all your fishing expeditions, FishTales is hands down the best app available.

Ultimate Angler can tell you exactly where you need to position yourself and cast in order to catch certain types of fish.
