Marietta, Ga. (PRWEB) June 5, 2010
FishNotes, the new and exciting way to keep detailed and accurate records of an angler’s catches, announces a partnership with Jimmy Houston, America’s Favorite Fisherman. Houston, from Cookson, Okla., will provide expertise feedback and guidance to the application, which helps anglers to record and track all pertinent information about fish catches.
Houston, known for his 30-year competitive career in BASS and FLW Outdoors which included two wins in Bassmaster Competition, 15 trips to the Bassmaster Classic, 37 top 10 finishes and two Bassmaster Angler of the Year titles; the first in 1976, followed by his second in 1986.
Along with his competitive career, Houston has been invited into the living rooms of America’s anglers for more than three decades through his television show Jimmy Houston Outdoors, now seen weekly on the Versus Network. Known for his boyish blonde hair and fun style of entertaining and educating anglers everywhere, Houston is one to share his trademark giggle frequently throughout the show.
Houston is a believer in keeping records of his catches, he has been intimately involved in the development and features of the App and calls it the most user friendly smart phone fishing app available. “Keeping great records is the key to catching more fish and having more fun fishing,” said Houston. “I’ve kept records my whole career, they’ve helped me a lot, and now FishNotes will help anglers everywhere make fishing reports in an easier to use and more efficient fashion.”
Kevin Ghezzi, FishNotes’ Vice President of Business Development, said everyone is excited to have an angler with Houston’s history and pedigree on board with the company. “Jimmy represents years of experience, excellence and familiarity with the outdoorsman that will be a true asset to FishNotes,” said Ghezzi. “His enthusiasm for fishing and the outdoors is infectious; we feel both privileged and honored to have the input of and association with one of fishing’s all time greats.”
FishNotes is a mobile app, originally released for the iPhone, but will soon have versions for the Android and Blackberry platforms as well. FishNotes works by taking advantage of today's smart phone technology allowing an angler to capture and record real time information to catalog the exact GPS location, the type and size of the fish caught, and all relevant weather data.
FishNotes has the capability to record and upload photos and videos to Facebook, Twitter or YouTube. The App also stores fishing reports, which are available at http://www.FishNotes.com allowing users to share information with each other or keep it private and use it to plan future fishing trips.
FishNotes allows you to keep track of when, where why and how, a fish is caught and even works without a cell phone signal. The App stores your records and permanently backs them up in case your phone is broken lost or dropped in the water. Records can be imported back to your phone so you never miss an opportunity to catch the fish of a lifetime.
FishNotes is set up to work in both fresh and saltwater; giving anglers the option of fish species to record once they are caught. Anglers create a fishing report by pushing the Fish On! button, then inputting the data to create a record of the catch. The App allows for inputting of length and weight, and automatically marks the GPS coordinates where the angler makes the record.
FishNotes is available at the App Store, by visiting http://www.fishnotes.com, or can be downloaded directly to the iPhone. FishNotes is available for $1.99, and $0.99 per month, there is also an annual subscription option available for $8.99 which eliminates the monthly charge.
