You know, I downloaded the app last winter...
But didn't really used it. My old phone crapped and I haven't downloaded it on my new phone yet. I am not in a rush to download and use it, but I wouldn't rule it out.
I understand it's a two edged sword: You see where people are and they see where you are (but I could be wrong).
There were days when I was seriously lurking and trying to find new spots. I certainly don't know every fishing spot in Colorado, Nebraska and Kansas, but I am not that interested in new spots these days. I don't fish smaller bodies of water much. I think most people who have fished in Colorado somewhat avidly for a decade or more probably has their own spots and habits. Most people who are actively looking to find new spots are probably relatively new to fishing: younger people, or older people who are getting into the sport. From what I see on social media, those people eventually figure out that hotspotting ain't worth it.
