Anglr, a Pittsburgh-based startup that provides fishing intelligence through a free app and Bluetooth-connected accessories, has raised $3.3 million in Series A funding. The company’s total funding is now $3.5 million, according to a story in the Post-Gazette.

The latest round of funding included investments by Brunswick Corp., KB Partners, BlueTree Capital Group and M25 Group. Brunswick was the only boating industry corporation. The others are investment firms.

Anglr plans to use the additional capital to increase its online sportfishing network, expand its team and add features to its app. The company will unveil a new accessory called the Anglr Bullseye today at the ICAST show. The Bullseye marks interactive waypoints and catches with a button connected to the app. It allows the data to be recorded without using a logbook or phone.
