About this project

Sight Fishing is an Incredible Experience

It's nothing like people typically perceive fishing to be. If I had to describe it, sight fishing is a fishing trip to the aquarium: you get to see all the action unfold right in front of you.

 It is one of my own passions within the realm of inshore fishing and with Sight Fishing Mastery School I want to teach you everything I know to successfully catch redfish in gin-clear water.

Hi, my name is Captain Devin. I am the author of the Louisiana Fishing Blog and I teach people how to fish. It's my livelihood and I have enjoyed much success with it.

The first fishing course I created is Inshore Fishing 101, which was successfully funded last year right here on Kickstarter. Since it became available to the public I have enjoyed a lot of positive feedback! I have not had to refund a single course and people contact me asking for more.

People told me they want to learn how to sight fish redfish. 

So I am creating Sight Fishing Mastery School 

Sight fishing is really fun, but it can also be very difficult. There are different kinds of equipment and tackle that are required, as well as things you need to know! 

This knowledge can take anglers years to acquire and it is this knowledge I possess. With Sight Fishing Mastery School I make this knowledge available in a complete learning system. This learning system includes:

  • a structured, multi-media format that includes lots of video
  • available for use on smart phones, tablets and computers
  • instructor support from myself (ask me anything)
  • lifetime subscription
  • learning is self-paced

In Sight Fishing Mastery School I teach you everything you need to know to master sight fishing for redfish:

  • redfish biology, life cycle and feeding habits
  • the kind of equipment you need (and don't need)
  • how to pick a stand for your boat
  • the right fishing rods, reels and line
  • which lures work best and how to rig them
  • properly set up your boat for sight fishing
  • a walk-through of my boat and the boats of other successful sight anglers
  • how to plan for a good sight fishing trip
  • how to find hungry redfish in gin-clear water
  • how to approach redfish without scaring them
  • the right way to cast at redfish with laser precision
  • what to do when redfish don't bite
  • and MORE!

It's the Right Investment

Anglers spend their valuable dollars on equipment and tackle without really knowing why or how that is supposed to help them catch fish. After all, catching is the goal, right?

I want to give you the most valuable thing I have: my knowledge.

Knowledge is what puts fish in the boat and it is more important than any electronic device or fishing lure. 

Sight Fishing Mastery School is an excellent way to invest in your fishing knowledge. It will save you heartache, money and give you the tools to create memories that last a lifetime.

Sight Fishing is a New Level

As an avid inshore angler I support and promote the values of conservation. I do that in many ways and the courses I create are one of them. Sight Fishing Mastery School is a great way to get people turned on towards conserving our incredible resource.

I Need Your Help 

I already have most of what I need to complete the course, but some things are missing. I need a better camera, a new drone, a new trolling motor and minor repairs are needed for my boat and truck.

Louisiana's wetlands are extremely diverse with saltwater, freshwater and everything in between. I plan on trailering to different locations to get those pictures and videos I need to make Sight Fishing Mastery School the absolute best. 

Thank you!

Together we can create an excellent resource to enable people to enjoy fishing in a completely new way, all the while promoting conservation and creating memories that last a lifetime. What's better than that?

Considerations You Must Make

Having a boat is a requirement. In addition to that, you must have the right boat.

Usually a flatboat, flats boat, bass boat, bay boat or something similar is what people use to sight fish redfish. Examples of boats that are not used are cabin cruisers and pontoon boats.

Risks and challenges

Consultations and fishing trips are subject to the weather.

Getting video and pictures is also subject to weather.

I have allotted myself enough time to get what I need and am an expert at judging weather conditions to make the most of circumstances.
