I make my living 100% from teaching people how to fish. This is how I break down 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:
Think about these categories and ideas will come alive in your mind. You are not far from discovering new inshore knowledge.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Anglers love them and I say this confidently because of the awesome testimonials I receive!
I feel like the most valuable thing I learned in inshore 101 was how to effectively fish the entire water column.
Captain Devin did an excellent job on teaching this.
I loved the decision making process about how to find fish and catch them when I got there. I've been fishing my whole life but never took a pragmatic approach to finding the fish until seeing it all put together like Captain Devin did.
Inshore Fishing 101 helped me take all of the pieces I had learned over the years of being in the marsh and put them together to catch fish reliably.
My experience was great! I think every angler professional and novice could learn something from this. I have to work six days a week so I can only fish on Sunday not to mention I live two hours from the coast. LOL So it's nice to read and stay sharp on things because I don't get a huge amount of time on the water.
From that you derive satisfaction and fulfillment that eclipses anything you’ve experienced before.
