Fishing Expert contains a database that queries your fishing conditions, then provides you with one of over 400 proven fishing methods or patterns. It takes into account weather, time of year, type of water,wind, spawning conditions, high/low pressure systems, and more. The methods given are unique for the fish you specify (bass, walleye, trout, panfish, musky). Techniques for boat control and ice fishing are also included. The program also includes fishing logs, recipes, lake information, equipment, packing lists, and a U.S. Coast Guard-approved float plan. You can search topics by keyword, and online help and printing facilities exist. This updated version makes 'what if' scenarios possible, lets you create your own scenarios, and adds more Windows-style functionality, recipes, and logs.
