No Frills No Fluff
Actionable easy to follow insights

Why you're not seeing fish

There are three simple reasons that prevent you from seeing fish on your equipment, and I address all three and explain the interactions between them. Simple and practical.

Converting 3D to 2D

Converting 3D to 2D
Learn how the conversion from 3D under the boat to 2D on your screen can play tricks with your brain and what the display REALLY shows.

Fish are not rocks

To the uninitiated, bottom dwelling fish can appear as rocks. We show you how to tell the difference. Because who wants to spend the afternoon fishing for rocks?

Searching and Assessing

These two very different applications need to approached in two different ways. We explain how to get the most out of your equipment for both applications.

When to adjust your settings

There’s a time to fiddle and a time to leave it alone. Are you confusing yourself even more by making unnecessary adjustments? Where most people go wrong has nothing to do with their sounder settings!

Insights applicable worldwide

These insights are not just for use in tropical Australia. They apply wherever you use a boat and sounder/side scan.

"I have already told everyone I know how good this course is. For once in my life there's no bullshit I had to listen to. Just goes to show that you're never too old to learn something new."

John De Bree

Logan City, QLD

"Sounder Skills 1 costs the same as a 6 pack of bundy's so not a big outlay at all, to gain lots of good tips!"

Bernie Wienert

North Fly, Papua New Guinea

"I had absolutely no hesitations about signing up to Sounder Skills 1. I loved all of the course content, especially the Side Scan info. I would 100% recommend this course!"

Michael Rankin

Palmetto, Florida USA

"Sounder Skills 1 teaches you how to differentiate between two different species. Even though I am based out of Florida knowing what the target species is was helpful. I would recommend Sounder Skills 1 because of the attention to detail. Ryan gave a lifetime of experience and knowledge. An amazing course for experienced and beginner anglers."

Alvaro Cordero

Homestead, Florida USA

"Yes, This course has increased my understanding of how to use my fishfinder 2D and SV greatly. I have been reading Facebook posts, watching youtube videos and taking live courses on setup for my Garmin and nothing has helped my understanding more than these online courses. I now have a much better understanding of what I am seeing and realize I have been missing fish due to misinterpretation of what I was seeing on screen. Thank you, Ryan Moody!"

Mark Jungdahl

Dayton, Ohio USA

"Sounder Skills 1 is full of useful information and is presented well so it's easy to understand. Since enrolling I now know what is under my boat, and what structure to fish and what not to. I am now catching the fish I always wanted to. THANK YOU!"

Roger Davidson

In this course, we're going to go through the 3 main reasons people don’t see fish on their sounder.

Understanding these concepts is the difference between the marketing hype and the reality of what you see in your boat. The biggest issue is they INTERACT with each other and can cancel each other out OR exacerbate the problem (making fish so tiny you can’t see them).

We demonstrate these concepts with sounder shots AND actual sounder recordings narrated by Ryan fishing on the boat, so you can begin to conceptualise the 3D world underneath you displaying on your 2D equipment.

There are TWO CORE VIDEOS which take an hour to watch plus three bonus videos. No frills, no fluff. Just an expert angler sharing his hard earned knowledge with you.

Please don’t be too concerned about the model of sounder we are using, or the species of fish we are displaying. All sounders conform to these principles and all fish targets are just that… fish targets.

We have included examples for both side scan and traditional. If you don’t have a side scan unit yet, revisit this course when you do as they are TOPS. For those with side scan, I use my traditional in tandem with my side scan, so the entire course will be of benefit to you.

We have also added some troubleshooting in Video 2 for deep water anglers using traditional 2D units only.

The result is CONFIDENCE! Knowing what is actually under you instead of being tricked by little known illusions. Plus we'll teach you how to ENHANCE what you want to see (fish) instead of getting duped by clutter.

We're from Northern Australia and the fish species we use in the demo are as well. But our concepts work worldwide! We've had happy students in 28+ countries. This goes to show you that fish targets are fish targets and our concepts work wherever you are in the world.

We have also included some deeper water stuff for the offshore anglers using only 2D traditional. It is especially important you bed these concepts into your mind and really put them into practice as depth exacerbates the problems we have seeing fish and identifying large fish vs small fish.

Understanding these concepts really is the difference between the marketing hype and the reality of what you see in your boat.

So... Are you ready to learn the most IMPORTANT fishing skill for only $20 Australian or your money back?

Doug Mellor

Forrest Beach, QLD

"I really liked how you put effort into not only teaching what to look for on the screen... but how to drive the boat to give the best sounder shots! If you don’t drive the boat right doesn’t matter what settings you have, you won’t get the optimum result on the screen."
