Ropeless Fisher (TM) App

Virtual Gear Marking and Smarter Practices for Ropeless Fishing

A major concern about implementing ropeless fishing is the possibility of gear overlay and identifying traps without the presence of surface buoys. The solution is the simple, free Ropeless Fisher (TM) app which runs on your GPS integrated smartphone or tablet. The app logs trap deployment locations then displays those location to other fishermen when operating within a  "visibility radius" of your traps that you define. Regulators may see submerged gear from any location at any time. Protect your gear from overlay while maintaining  your proprietary locations by setting a visibility radius to fit your needs.

Avoid Gear Overlay - The Rope-less fisher app was born through the idea of making sure traps with no surface buoys can still be seen by other fishermen and regulators alike. Through the app, each deployed trap has a marked GPS location which is stored and updated to a cloud database when in cell-phone/wifi reach. The app then lists each trap deployment through a list or map view which indicates if a trap is near and whether or not a fisherman should lay traps in that location given the presence of nearby traps. 

Regulators See All

As previously mentioned, regulators (with the Rope-less Fisher app) will have the ability to see all trap locations from any distance. This means significantly reduced costs for regulators by mitigating the coast of boating expenses. This also means more time available to concentrate resources since regulators no longer have to guess or go to trap locations as often. 

Free for Everyone

The Rope-less Fisher app is and will always be free of charge for anyone who wishes to download it. The app is also available on any android platform which includes a GPS receiver, an iOS version is in development.
