The following software is approved for use in the Southeast For-Hire Integrated Electronic Reporting program. Charter vessels and non-SRHS headboats may use either application. Those participating in the SRHS will continue to use the VESL app. If an application is compliant with multiple programs, submitting one report using that application will make you compliant with the reporting requirements of both programs, provided you adhere to the more restrictive reporting timeline.
