Logbooks, Waypoints, And Patterns Using ANGLR With Dave Lefebre

Professional bass angler Dave Lefebre has been with ANGLR since the beginning. He has helped shape the idea into what it is today. Having the ability to measure, record, and improve with each and every fishing trip has changed the game for so many anglers. Here’s what Dave had to say about the progress thus far!

Dave Lefebre Using Logbooks To Find Patterns

Dave grew up tracking all of his fishing in a logbook with the ol’ pen and paper method. He attests that keeping an old fashioned log book just isn’t productive anymore. With so many years of fishing data, it can be nearly impossible to find a specific trip or snippet of data. But, he knows how valuable a logbook can be!

“Keeping a logbook is something everybody should do, it makes you better.”

With ANGLR, your logbook is tracked digitally in real time. Being able to mark waypoints and collect all of the data simultaneously is the way of the future! Dave admits that he was kind of a geek with his old fashioned logbooks. He tried to track everything so he could figure out why the fish bit. When he began to notice some days were better than others, he knew keeping track of everything was going to improve his fishing. Now, He uses the free ANGLR app as a logbook to track every piece of data he needs to constantly improve!

“I don’t need the notebooks anymore, it’s all digital. I can do all this stuff a lot quicker, I can research it quicker. It’s easy, automatic, and all in one place.”

For Dave, using ANGLR saves him an incredible amount of time, but he’s able to still learn just as much if not more through reviewing his data. With ANGLR, Dave can see all of his data in real time, right at his fingertips! There used to be a lot of things that went into figuring out why the fish were or weren’t biting, now it’s easy! It’s literally the click of one button!

Using Fishing Technology To Solve A Century Old Problem

For centuries, collecting fishing data has been a real pain in the waders.

ANGLR has solved this problem with a free fishing app and arsenal of fishing tracking accessories.

Now, you have the ability to build fishing intelligence without interrupting the fishing experience. One click marks a catch. Two clicks marks a waypoint.

You don’t even have to touch your phone or fish finder.

Don’t leave it to luck. Plan, record and improve. Turn your data into insights using the ANGLR fishing intelligence platform.

This is a lot more than a feed of selfies and fishbra pics like those other apps.

You’ll have complete trip summaries from start to finish with GPS routes, waypoints, catches, conditions and more waiting for you in your profile. And remember, your spots are your spots. You decide when and who to share them with.

This is fishing intelligence for the future. This is your chance to become a better fisherman. Hassle not included.

We hope you enjoy the video, we had a ton of fun creating it with the entire team. Huge shoutout goes to Dave Lefebre, Orange Astronaut, and Danny Jones!
