Fishing Electronics Training

In our ever-changing world of technology, there are very few similarities between your Grandpa’s fishing equipment and the tools we depend on today. I often hear anglers tell me they feel like they need a degree in fishing electronics to get any use out of today’s technological equipment. I understand their reluctance of the unknown but assure you with better technology, comes more user-friendly equipment. Half the battle is simply turning the equipment on and putting in the time.

I offer numerous hands on training sessions to help you shorten this learning curve and give you more confidence on what your equipment can do for you. I work with the industries best electronics companies (Lowrance, Navionics and Hydrowave) and in just one session will give you a better understanding of how to get the most out of your equipment.



On-Water Training

I offer two styles of on-water training sessions. If you’re curious about what today’s fishing electronics can do for you, join me on the water in my rig and see first hand the advantages of today’s fishing electronics.

If you’ve already purchased your Lowrance, Navionics or Hydrowave equipment and want to better understand them, I’ll join you in your boat and help personalize your equipment to your specifications and give you a hands on lesson by shortening your learning curve so you get more out of your investment.
