Check the daily fishing forecast using the Take Me Fishing Skill for Amazon Alexa using easy tips. Get updates on where to fish, best times to fish, more

Weather, moon phases, and water conditions will all play a role in your fishing successes. If you are planning a trip with your family, check the daily fishing forecast or daily update using the Take Me Fishing Skill on Amazon Alexa. Do you have an Alexa device at home? Since we are spending more time at home now than ever, the voice assistant can be a great addition for you and your family!

When you use the Take Me Fishing Skill to get the most up-to-date fishing information and a daily fishing report, you'll boost your chances of catching the species of fish you want to catch in your favorite local waterways.

Use these tips to get the latest updates from Alexa on where to fish, best times to fish, and fishing conditions today for public waters in your area:

  • In these times of social distancing, ask Alexa about the "best places to fish near me" and get a list of options. This way, you have alternate fishing spots near you in case one is busier than expected, or in the event a boat ramp or fishing access location might be undergoing improvements or maintenance.
  • Once you have a list of preferred local fishing spots or waterways, all you have to do is say, "Alexa, ask Take Me Fishing to tell me the daily update." In other words, you can ask a single question and get a daily fishing report that covers weather conditions, fish species, biggest catches, and more.
  • When weather conditions change or you want to focus on catching a specific type of fish species, ask Alexa to give you a daily fishing forecast using the approved utterances. For example, "Alexa, ask Take Me Fishing which fish species have been caught in Lake Okeechobee?" or "Alexa, ask Take Me Fishing what the fishing weather forecast for tomorrow is in Clewiston, Florida?"
  • Check back with Alexa daily or weekly to find out which lakes in your local area will be good for fishing, or which types of baits are best to use for different species in your area depending on the fishing conditions.

When using the Take Me Fishing Skill for Amazon Alexa, keep in mind that only public waters maintained by state or federal agencies are included. Enable the Take Me Fishing Skill on your Amazon Alexa device today, and get the latest information on state boat ramps, accessible recreational amenities and more.
