Nowadays, anglers can incorporate their mobile devices into their fishing trips, for purchasing a license, monitoring the weather, or keeping up with the fishing reports.

There are plenty of mobile apps and online resources for fishing in New Jersey, so your quest for the perfect fish is always just a click away.

The Official New Jersey Fishing, Hunting & Wildlife Guide

The New Jersey Division of Fish & Wildlife’s free mobile app, powered by Pocket Ranger, is full of features, including regulations, maps, species profiles, tracking recorder, compass, calendar, and news.

The app also has a GPS feature that sends your coordinates to your contacts in case of emergency. And you’ll never have to worry about inaccurate or outdated information with this official guide, since it’s always up-to-date and straight from the Division of Fish & Wildlife.

The New Jersey Division of Fish & Wildlife Mobile Site

While the Division’s app doesn’t have a feature that allows you to actually purchase a New Jersey fishing license, the division’s mobile site has a fully functional licensing site in mobile form, so you can do your fishing business anywhere.

In addition to purchasing licenses, you can also use the mobile site to report harvests and check your lottery application status.

iFish New Jersey

This paid Android mobile app ($5), helps anglers find the best places to fish in New Jersey, plus maps, weather, forecasts, and lots of information.

What makes this different from the New Jersey's Division of Fish & Wildlife’s app is the massive amount of fishing information it gives you access to, including books and magazines that can be accessed offline.

While iFish apps are available in iOS for some states, the New Jersey version could be purchased only through Amazon.com or the GooglePlay store.


This free, interactive fishing app allows users to share their latest catch, see what others nearby are catching, and target hot spots. Once a location is set, users can see anglers from local areas.

Pictures are displayed like an all-fishing Pinterest-like board that users can scroll through. Anglers can comment on photos and interact with other members, making this one of the best app-based fishing communities around.
