PostSubject: New web app beta testing.   Fri Sep 09 2011, 13:18

First off I hope this is not against the rules, and if it is then I am sorry and just delete it. Also Im not trying to sell anything.

I am currently in the process of developing a web app to help bring the fishing industery in Ireland into the I.T age.

The app is focused on using an interactive map to place pins and attach a pic of your catch to the pin, and before anyone says it. I know these locations are a highly guarded secret (I'm a fisherman) and I am not asking anyone to pin the exact location of the catch but just the lake, river, louch, canal or beach.
The objective of the site is to build a database for what can be caught where, and to also allow fishers and tourists use the map to create and plan a fishing trip that can be stored or printed with detailed directions to each location.

Members features: ALL FREE TO USE.....

  • Place images on the map
  • Private fishing log "will give back stats for each member and is completely private.
  • Fishing planner " Trip planner " this feature will allow you to plan and design your whole trip, even book accommodation and then get a print out of detailed directions
  • There is allot of feature that we need to keep quiet untill release. So a whole lot more.


We are also looking for clubs to get involved in the testing.

Club Features: Free to use.
  • Member Listings & On-Site Contact Facilities (Private or public)
  • News Updates & Event Calendars (Private or public)
  • Club Photo Gallery (Private or public)
  • Competitions Schedules & League Tables (Private or public)
  • Directions to the Club
  • Contact Form for the Club
  • Tag the location of the club (Members will be able to get a detailed printout of directions to the club)
  • Tag locations of events and competetions (Members will be able to get a detailed printout of directions to the events and competetions)
  • Advertise on the site to attract new members
  • Use the map to attract new members.
  • And a whole lot more........


We have a huge amout of features that are being kept hidden untill they are ready for use but we are looking to make www[ . ]myworldfishing.com one of the most comprehensive fishing communitys online. So please come and try it out and help with feedback.

Thank you.

The concept is ok and would probably work better in england,where there is a vast amount of venues to be looked at.Unfortunatly were not that lucky in ireland regarding carp.Personally i think theres already enough or too much info on the web as to where fish are or where the best venues are situated.Compared to other countries we have a relativly small base of carp anglers.Everybody knows each other by personal contact or by means of this site,likewise we already know where the fish are.So why do we need a data base like myworldfishing?What your doing is collecting a vast amount of info on waters and venues,providing a map,and asking anglers to stick pins and flags on it,For who??...

Hi mike,

Thank you for the feedback, first off let me point out that it is not onlyy about carp, it is about all styles of the sport of fishing... I myself am a sea fisher and I like a bit of pike fishing but I hate course.. The objective of the map is to get all the different parts of fishing to come together and show what the range of fishing is in Ireland, which is allot bigger then you seem to think.

As for the " For Who?." Everyone. Lets say this map was of England and you decided to go on a carp trip to england, do you think you would use it to see where the best carp spots are?....

Pat.

Am I right in saying that all lakes in Ireland need some sort of licence, or that foreigners and national know that all lakes hold some sort of fish?

So if all lakes need a licence then there is a bag limit?

as it is the lakes that have licences to fish get raped regardless. i think your idea is a good 1 but maybe the timing is out. lakes here get or have gotten seriously damaged by those that just fish to eat. the result is sessions and captures are kept fairly seceret. and barely shared other than privately. wish you the best with it anyway
no offence but i wouldnt put a pin in any capture i had.

Thank you Pop for being straight.

Heres a question: What can be done to stop the raping? What if there was a feature that allowed people to report ilegal activity to the people who need to know about it. I know it still wouldent make people pin a photo but if it helped the fishing industry and allowed some sort of growth back in the lakes.....?

Guys when I said im creating the app to help the fishing industry in Ireland well that means doing things that help the fishing industry, so if you want to throw some suggestions I will see if its possible to do....

I really dont think an app would work in Ireland for one reason, who wants anyone else to know where, how or how big the fish was so that someone else can come along and rape the water. As far as reporting an incident I know anglers on this site would have no problems reporting poaching by FNs or in some cases Irish nationals and have done so so you wouldnt need an app for that. I appreciate that you are trying to help the fishing industry in Ireland but I personally would not post a catch on any other site and I also know non carp anglers who feel the same way. To view a catch report on this site you must first register and as Mike B says in earlier reply eyeryone on this site is known to someone who knows someone else. I wish you the best with your endevours.

Your idea is good but it will only cause problems.we don't have many carp waters and have been trying very hard over the last ten years minding lakes which have reasonable stocks left from the watchful eyes of the munchers.I'm sure you can see my point as stocks are irreplaceable and this would have a devastating effect

All very valid points and TBH i am glad I posted here because I have run into this issue on many other forums, but it seems the carp fishing is hit by what you guys call "munchers" more then any other.... I never relised you could eat carp till now..lol

BUT I know I will come up with something that will make you guys happy.......

Thank you for all the input and if theres any suggestions Id be glad to hear them...


Tight lines.

IT is a good idea but might work in another country perhaps , a good idea would be an app that shows where waters have been pilaged and still are show areas rivers/lakes streams/ponds that poachers frequent and have been caught before the more anglers are aware about where the fish are disapearing from the more the irish people can do to stop it ,and people could use this app to alert anglers about poaching as its happening log reg numbers for people to look out for etc the more we can do to stop anyone munching on our fish and people we can just call them poachers scratch

Has anyone looked into setting up an organisation that looks after the poaching onour free waterways?.... Get volunteers from each county that would be interested in becoming an anti poacher patrol "for want of better words". I could setup a system where people can report what they think is poaching and the volunteers in that area can be alrted and have a look.

Its just a matter of looking into the laws of what a citizen can do to protect the area...
Put up signs on the areas with a number, or an email where they can repot the poaching... I know that there is these things out there run by the government but TBH has anyone ever seen anyone looking into poaching that was reported?...

Just an Idea,

Just tought I'd stick up an update....

We have decided to focus on clubs, I think this will help ease the worry about people showing aff their spots....

Another this we are looking into is tagging your picture to a county rather then having to stick a pin on the map....


Let me know what ye think...
