DALLAS, Texas (March 17, 2021) – BassForecast has announced the launch of a major app update, including several new Bass catching innovations, just in time for the Spring 2021 fishing season. Designed to help simplify the science of Bass fishing and increase catch rates, BassForecast tracks real time weather and seasonal patterns to help anglers increase their odds on any given day. The newly updated app now includes the ability to identify Bass season and provides “Adapted Patterns,” which recommends the best Location, Presentation, and Bait to use on any given day based on the mood of the Bass.
Designed to Simplify the Science of Bass Fishing, BassForecast Tracks Real-Time Weather & Seasonal Patterns to Increase Catch Rates
BassForecast’s best of breed data inputs, and cutting-edge technology, allows the app to approximate Bass season at a user entered location based on real-time weather trends. With the app’s new update, Premium customers will now see the Bass season for any location, Adapted Patterns, and a unique BassForecast Rating for 10 days into the future. Bass season dictates general fish location and depth, which is the first step in putting together a seasonally adjusted fish catching pattern.
“There are 9 Bass seasons in a year, and it can be tricky to forecast seasonal transitions,” said Mike Mehlmann, Co-Founder of BassForecast. “Water is an insulator and takes a while to adjust to average air temperatures, but after many years of research and feedback, we have been able to forecast these transitions with increasing accuracy.”
Seasonal patterns are the primary factor in fish location, while weather patterns are the primary factor in feeding behavior, which dictates bait selection and presentation. BassForecast’s newly launched “Adapted Patterns” feature combines these elements to pinpoint the best general lake locations, baits and presentations.
“I have found that if my primary pattern is not working, BassForecast recommends what does,” said Alton Jones Jr., Major League Fishing Professional. “The app improved my performance, consistency and helped me finish the 2020 tour with my highest ranking yet.”
And because every bait needs to be worked a little differently, BassForecast added a major new Premium Feature called “Tackle Tips”. There are twenty-two categories of bait, and this feature matches the best types of rod, reel and line to each, so anglers can use the proper technique for each recommended bait. BassForecast also added the ability to adjust baits for different types of cover such as weeds, wood and rocks, because sometimes a favorite crankbait just won’t make it through the weeds.
“We are helping anglers learn that it is not secret lures or spots, but adapted patterns that consistently catch fish,” said Mehlmann. “We’re making this information simple, and easy to access and use in real time.”
With fishing license sales up over 50% nationwide, BassForecast had an incredible 2020, more than tripling their customer base throughout the year.
“What motivates me is the thousands of fish catching stories and pictures we have received…from personal bests, to our customers now getting their kids hooked, and all of the lifelong memories that we have helped to create,” said Mehlmann.
As socially distanced, outdoor sports continue to rise in popularity, the BassForecast team looks forward to continued growth and success in 2021.
BassForecast is the #1 rated fishing calendar app for bass fishermen, proven to increase bass catch rates by 68-305%. Using proven factors in the science of Bass Feeding behavior, the BassForecast Rating (BFR) forecasts the best days to Bass fish, and when to go. In order to make accurate predictions, BassForecast utilizes a combination of exact user GPS (or selected location), complete solunar data, the time-lag-effect of past air temperature on water temperature, barometric pressure changes and other relevant weather factors that have been scientifically proven to affect Bass feeding behavior. BassForecast is the only tool that considers all relevant factors that affect bass feeding behavior to help anglers better plan the best days, times and location to fish.
