Elements of Effective Fishing (FREE Course)

Not catching fish when everyone else is?

It could be that you’ve been on biting fish this entire time, but were overlooking one of the elements of effective fishing.

This free course introduces you to the three elements that will help you catch those fish! These are critical to the success of any fishing trip:

  1. Boat Positioning
  2. Weight Selection
  3. Fan Casting

In addition to those three elements you will also learn:

  • the two methods fish use to feed and how to adapt to them
  • how to know if a fishing spot is good or not
  • when to leave and locate more productive water
  • when and where to use which fishing tackle
  • overall long term fishing success

Once you have the skills and knowledge taught by this course, you will possess the confidence to know if biting fish are present or not, leading you to catch a great box worth bragging about or — just as important — knowing for sure there are no fish there, freeing you to hit your next fishing spot.

This course is free, but you must have an account here on LAFB Elite and be logged-in in order to take it. Registering an account is also free! Hope to see you inside the course!
