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!
New things learned
I like that I can go back through the course and make lists and notes. Very good videos. I liked a lot about it. It made me feel part of a group with the question and answer portion.
Inshore Fishing 101 helped me understand the importance of current lines, "sidewalks" & "side roads" vs fish "highways", setting up the boat's location at a site, and Google Earth's contribution to planning my fishing trip.
Inshore Fishing 101 is a great tool
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.
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?
