Ready to challenge other anglers in real-time, live-leaderboard fishing competitions? Battle for braggin’ rights with fishing buddies or organize your own tournament for all comers with the new GoFree Hooked fishing app. Download it for free from the iTunes or Google Play stores.
“One of the most unique aspects of Hooked is the competition feature,” says Greg Konig, Executive Vice President at Navico, which owns the GoFree, Lowrance, Simrad and B&G marine brands. “Once you’ve entered a tournament, you can see who’s in first and what you need to catch to win.”
Anglers can invite others – via email or text message – to compete against them on any waterbody, for any length of time, for any prize. Battle for bragging rights or make it more interesting …What you compete for is up to you. You make the rules.
Challenge categories include:
- Biggest Fish
- Best Five-Fish* Limit (*Limit number is customizable)
- Combined Weight of All Fish Caught
- Combined Length of All Fish Caught
Note: At this time, tournaments you set up will not be publicly discoverable within the app’s “Competition” page. To promote your tournament and make other anglers aware of it, you will need to invite them — through the app’ “Share” button — via email, text message, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. When you post to Social Media channels, be sure to post the actual link to your tournament’s “Enroll” page (and note that people will only be able to access that link when interacting with your post via a smartphone, but not via a tablet or computer). Full tournament-sharing directions listed below in Step # 8.
