FWC App: I give it a thumbs up

FWC has released an app for smartphones and it is surprisingly pretty awesome. You can find and display your fishing license through it, buy a new license, look up regulations, and it even gives you sunrise/sunset and sea conditions for your local area. I always have my phone on me offshore on a lanyard around my neck so now I always have my license with me. I recommend it!

    The app displays an image (pdf maybe?) of your actual license, almost like the receipt you print out when you purchase online. Seems legit to me.

    The potential is there, but I can see a few bugs (I do software QA sometimes at work) and I hope they can improve it over time.

    There's no such thing as someone who can improve software. They fix one minor thing that some techy complained about and break everything that normal people try to use.

    You're granting the app permissions to read the contents of your USB storage. Wonder why it needs that.
  • You have seen the code? Why do you say that?

  • Force of habit. The edit key to me (which you cannot see ) in the new format is where the former reply key is. It is a problem which I promise to overcome w/ practice.

    I am sorry, but I assure you that I have not changed the original post content.

    Yeah to track your location and check to see if you have your reef fish permit on file.

    A wade fisherman is the most simplistic but the most adept for the quarry they are after. They are immersed in their challenger's habitat and are in tune with the subtle changes of current, temperature and bottom. In order to be successful at this noble and primal fishing form one must be submerged from their goobs to their boobs, anyone doing this outside of that boundary is either sunbathing or swimming.

    There is none to be had. It simply is a registration allowing you to be interviewed. You can say anything you want.

    It's okay. I was only joking. Actually I have no idea where any reefs are. I do know the location of a good mangrove shoreline that is holding lunker winter snook though, if anyone needs the info.:wink

    If you are required to register, then print it and then carry it with you to be legal then is this not a permit. No fee attached (yet) but is still a permit for you to be legal. Merrit Island Wildlife Refuge requires you to carry their printed permit to legally fish there. Only diff is they are not out to bend over the anglers whereas FWC will use this info to claim to many folks are out harvesting reef fish and give another victory to the commercial folks and their lobbyists.
