    The amount of fish that is down there surprised me, and how they won't bite at times. Many times when they hit its only a few of what is there.

    Guys it works but if you hit them with line or jig they haul butt . You would be surprised how many move away from your boat . But if you see several slabs on a top and catch one the rest may get tight and refuse to play !

    Having a lot of fish in an area and not getting them to take your bait is an interesting subject.

    Having retired a year and a half ago after being a fisheries management biologist (in a mid western and a western state) for 45 years, I have numerous stories of anglers telling me, "there are no fish in XX lake or stream because I fished there and did not catch a thing." It is humbling, as an angler, to go fishing in an area and not catch anything only to realize there were many fish there, but you could not catch them.

    Over the years, when confronted by anglers with the "no fish there" issue, I invited several of them to come along on sampling trips to that water. Most of the anglers were amazed at how many fish were captured during the sampling trip and the size of the fish that were sampled. Comments such as "I had no idea there were fish like that in this water" and "I never have caught fish that big here" were very common.

    The one incident I vividly remember is taking an angler to a trout stream that he fished frequently. We electrofished a 300 foot section of stream and he helped collect the trout that were sampled. When we got ready to leave the area I noticed the angler just standing on the stream bank staring into the section of water where we had just sampled over 300 trout. Since he had been standing there for quite some time, I asked him if he was OK. His response was, "Yes, I am fine. You know how many times I have fished this exact stretch of this stream, and if I caught 8 or 10 trout I thought I was having a great day of fishing. Now, when I realize how many fish are here, I can't believe it."

    You may be thinking what does this have to do with this tread about Livescope questions? Technology is now available to the angler that gives them an idea just how many fish are in the location they are fishing. Whether or not an angler can catch those fish is another story. I guess the bottom line is, just because you don't catch fish doesn't mean there are no fish there to catch. Now livescope users know that to be true.

    I don't know about the ones in Arkansas but many times the trolling motor will make them bust out down here. It's really made me rethink my trolling motor methods.

    Iím surprised at how many fish can be on a spot and you can only catch 2 or 3 of them and sometimes none at all.

    I’ve never experienced live scope first hand, but comments have just solidified my feelings that I’ve had for years. That being; sometimes fish just aren’t interested no matter what you throw or how you stink it up. When I first started crappie fishing I was able to fish a place literally loaded with fish. I could see so many on the depth finder that it was useless. Changing retrieves and ticks, bumps, taps, drops, and anything else you can imagine may get a fish but might not. It helped a lot in forming what I do today. For instance, a 2” lift of a bait looks unnatural and frequently won’t get bit. Now on the next cast I would drop the rod tip an inch or two, or hesitate just a split second in the retrieve of the reel, and get a rewarding thump. Touch the TM and blow the wash towards those fish and you better have something else to do for 30 minutes or so. Shut em down like throwing a switch. They wouldn’t leave but they wouldn’t eat either. TM noise was also a negative but it more depended on the noise level of the day. Windy noisy days and they weren’t near as touchy, but calm days they were real touchy. I hope to get to watch the show livescope provides one day. I wonder if I’ll stay glued to the screen or actually be able to fish some.
    Listen to your gut over all the other voices.
