Fishing Apps/Websites - What do you use?

Hey peeps. I'm starting to get back into my fishing since my amazing trip to Coral Bay. Only issue is i don't have a boat so short of continually going on charters, I need to start working on my land based skills. I tried some fresh water fishing in Dwellingup the other day and wasn't overly successful, so wondering what apps / websites people use that i can start keeping track of weather, tides, and anything useful for fishing. I downloaded the recfishwest app and loving that so far for fish information, but wouldn't mind learning about all the other stuff as well as good locations to fish land based that people have fund successful. Thanks everyone.

 + 1 for this site. Just select the area you want to fish and I've found it reasonably accurate.

 Hey H,

I subscribe to  Fishtrack. Good for temps, currents and forecasts etc.. There is also a free version which is pretty good. I used it for a couple of years before they convinced me to pay for full version 

Not sure if it would suit your purpose but thought I'd put it out there for you

Hope it helps

 I've offered a deckie spot out of hillarys. Was surprised you weren't interested in free metro fishing. And before anyone thinks anything else my male deckies don't pay either! ha ha.

I don't like my company either but free fishin' is free fishin'.

Oh from ages ago. Yeah i forget what everyones nicnames are sorry. Plus i don't like inviting myself on other peoples boats. I feel a bit rude. Do you go out often? obviously i'm happy to pitch in for fuel so maybe when you don't have a better looking deckie hit me up :)

 For landbased all I really use is seabreeze for wind/swell and tides4fishing for tides/moon phase/barometer. 

Don't really need much more than that and as like pirate said Easterlies are your best mate off the beach usually.

Start by getting yourself a reasonable rod/reel combo if you don't have one and go from there, boat tackle won't make your life easy unless you're fishing off a jetty
