“It’s like a 95-year-old using an iPhone to just call and text.”

Fish finders are some of the greatest, yet misunderstood tools that anglers have.

Most of us are like the 95-year-old mentioned above and are just barely scratching the surface with all that our fish finders can do.

Plus, when you consider how expensive they are, realizing you aren’t getting the full use of them is a downright tragedy!

So we brought one of the best fish finder experts in the world on to the podcast today to help us better understand them.

Neal Combs is the expert who trains the experts at Bass Pro and West Marine.

Plus, he’s from Navico, who represents all the top brands, so he’s not biased towards one brand or another.

  • The top misconceptions about fish finders, brands, and all their capabilities
  • How to use the “flashlight effect” to find more fish

Imagine getting a fancy new computer, but all you know how to use it for is email.

That’s exactly what so many anglers are doing with their fish finders!

In this new mastery course we’re bringing out experts like Neal, Capt. Peter Deeks (owner of multiple world records), Bill Dance, Capt. Dylan Hubbard and several others to help you learn how to use your fish finder better.

Here’s a little preview of what you’ll learn in this course:

  • ​How to know the size of the fish below you (even on 2D Sonar)
  • How to find the best bait on your fish finder (including pinfish and croakers)

Hey Joe…….call me old fashioned. My fish finders are located on either side of my nose, paired with a good pair of polarized sunglasses. No course needed for that!!
