Move over Candy Crush — Maine fishermen might have a new favorite app
WEST GARDINER, Maine — Finding yourself getting a headache from trying to make sense of the ins-and-outs of regulations for fishing in Maine? Well, there’s an app for that, thanks to one enterprising West Gardiner fisherman, Mainebiz reported.
The catalyst for Ron Cote — a self-described occasional fisherman — to develop the app, came from the difference in rules and regulations at fishing spots near his home compared to fishing holes near his camp in Eustis.
Before Cote developed his Fish Maine app, he found himself leafing through the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Open Water and Ice Fishing regulation book trying to make sense of special codes and the fishing spots to which they applied.
