I make my living 100% from teaching people how to fish. This is how I break down inshore fishing knowledge.
Discover Inshore Fishing Knowledge
It can be frustrating when you read a great article in a magazine (a lot of which I have) but are left wanting more. You got one piece of the puzzle, so where are the rest?
It's been my mission to provide all the pieces, not just here, but also in LAFB University.
Given this experience, I would break inshore fishing knowledge down into three meaningful categories:
- what you know
- what you know you don't know
- what you don't know that you don't know
Think about these categories and ideas will come alive in your mind. You are not far from discovering new inshore knowledge.
What You Know
You probably already know how to tie an Improved Clinch Knot. It's common knowledge in the inshore fishing world.
This is knowledge you already know.
What You Know You Don't Know
Maybe you don't know how to tie an Improved Clinch Knot. Maybe you never heard of it until now.
This is knowledge you know that you don't know.
What You Don't Know That You Do Not Know
There could be some other knot that is easier-to-tie and stronger than the Improved Clinch Knot. But you don't know what it is. Maybe this idea didn't even cross your mind until now.
This is my favorite knowledge! It's what I have been chasing for years and sharing with anglers.
Some I discover on my own. Some I learn from other anglers. Either way, I aim to gain it and improve myself.
Any dummy can reel in a fish. That's not hard.
Successfully navigating the marsh and locating fish? That's a whole other level, and a lot more satisfying.
I can show it all to you.
The blog and podcast has a lot of great knowledge to scratch your itch.
In fact, I encourage you to scroll all the way to the bottom of this page to use the category menu and search box to find new knowledge. It's free!
And if you haven't listened to the podcast, then you really should. It's all about awesome fishing advice from other anglers.
The Silver Bullet My silver bullet is in my inshore fishing courses. Everything you need is in one spot with instructor support.
Anglers love them and I say this confidently because of the awesome testimonials I receive!
Easy to Learn
I love the ease of use and good explanations with pictures to help explain it all. Now I consistently catch fish when it was a total gamble before.
Previously I would look for spots that looked good to me, but I never really knew what to look for.
Now I do.
Fishing is time on the water.
I wish I'd taken Inshore Fishing 101 earlier in my fishing timeline.
I think the course is great to help flatten the curve for newbies or the anglers who just fish at random times.
With new knowledge you grow and improve.
From that you derive satisfaction and fulfillment that eclipses anything you've experienced before.
Who doesn't want that?
