Get the most out of your fish finder with sounder skills 2

Sounder Skills 2 – How to use a fish finder

Our newest online fishing course on how to use your fish finder: Sounder Skills 2 will be available from 11th February 2019.

Sounder Skills 2 is a comprehensive course on how to get the best from your fish finder in a practical sense.

It’s about how to find new spots, position your boat in the right spot, know what constitutes a good spot and how to catch more fish.

So it’s not so much about what buttons to push, where they are on your unit menu etc. (there are too many different models and brands you’ll have to use your manual for that).

But it is about the correct settings so your unit is telling you the truth.

You see, Ryan could set up his unit to show there were no fish when there are a lot, and small fish when they’re big.

He could also trick the uninitiated into thinking they were high in the water column when they are low and vice versa.

It’s remarkable how your unit can lie to you.

And we remove all the confusion in our newest course.

It takes our introductory course on how to use a fish finder (Sounder Skills 1) to the next level.

And the best part?

We take you into the field in some of our demo videos as we record the screen along with Ryan’s narration so you can see what we see and have it interpreted for you.

I’ve got some snippets from the demos in the promo video below.




Now I had intended on writing a big blurb about the course, but as I write this Ryan is in the hospital with kidney stones.

So forgive me if it's short and sweet.

Plus I'm prepping for the next intake of Barra Basics with registrations opening from 11th February to 15th February 2019.

Goodness, it never rains it pours. Just ask Townsville!

Our signature online fishing course Barra Basics will be also available from 11th February 2019.

Registrations for Barra Basics only opens a couple of times per year and the next intake is sure to be a doozy.

The season opened a few days ago and already the Facebook group is going wild with student pics.

It has been a bit of a barra drought in FNQ due to the lack of rain, but that all changed last week.

For those interested in Barra Basics - don't take our word for it.

About The Author

Ryan Moody

Ryan Moody started his fishing career on the reef boats before catching bucket list marlin for the likes of champion heavy tackle angler Johnno Johnson, INXS and the King of Sweden. Branching out in the late 80's to guided barramundi fishing, Ryan has made a name for himself as a Big Barramundi specialist and to date has put clients onto over 2000 metre plus barra. That is over 2 kilometres of metre plus barra! With attitudes changing from 'keep all you can' towards catch and release, Ryan has decided to share his extensive knowledge and hopefully inspire people of all ages to get out from behind the computer screen/TV and into the fishing outdoors lifestyle he has spent his life perfecting.

    Ryan, If I was to buy into Sounder Skills 2, can my brother watch it the same time as I do, we both have the same model sounder, Garmin EchoMap 65cv as we are both having troubles trying to work out what we should be looking for on screen.

    Many thanks
