Why can't I see fish on my sounder?

Ryan Moody's Fish Smarter online fishing courses are synonymous with simple to implement instructions and proven student results.

Definitely recommend the course. I have watched heaps of YouTube clips to try and explain what my sounder is showing me but Ryan explains it in simple terms.

Nathan Pratt

Totally recommend this short course. Minimum cost and very informative. Even if you're just honing your skills.

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.

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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 found the course very helpful in understanding my side scan unit. Definitely recommend.

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

John De Bree

Side Scan has been a part of my sounder I’ve really struggled with. Now Ryan has shed some light on it for me, I’m more confident with my interpretation of what I’m looking at.

Steve Lawlor

Clear, concise and to the point. Spoken like a true fisherman.

Brett Organ

The great interpretation of the images of fish bait and structures on the chirp as to a traditional one frequency unit has helped me out and cleared a lot of things up for me where I thought it was bait but could of actually been fish thank you

Doug Mellor

It is very informative and well delivered by Ryan and he explains things in a way that is practical and easy to understand.

Rod Hanneman

Anything from RMF is going to be good. Learned a lot about my side scan and will be watching it a few more times.

Cameron Telford

I have had my sounder for 5 years and never seen a barra or thready or anything else. Seen rocks wrecks etc. but never fish. Now I have new ideas to try. Thank you

Neil Coad

Found the whole thing interesting and will be watching again. Would definitely recommend.

Kelly O'Connor

I've seen many tutorials over the years but was never able to correctly interpret what I see until Ryan explained the basics.

David Walker

Absolutely recommend....the value of your experience and knowledge that has been inputed into this course coupled with ease of learning. For the so called experienced fisho there's always something to learn from you guys...Thanks Moodys!

Brett Ford

Loved it! Ryan is down to earth and tells it like it is. No hype to sell products.

Gerry Flora

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.

Steven Brooke

Absolutely l gained so much from this course. I have done training with the sounder rep and I got more from your course!

Carmel Redgewell

I definitely would recommend the course. Cheap as chips. Even if you only learn one new thing. Could be the difference one day in finding fish or not.

Matt Brownsey

Do this course. Everyone with a sounder needs this to help understand the confusing instructions supplied with the sounder.

Wayne Picker

Definitely recommend the course to others. Just excellent content and info from a professional. Nothing changes if nothing changes!
