    I can only go by what Slabeye has told me and what I've seen for myself when fishing with him, but ....

    Fish will react negatively, sometimes, to the "popping/jiggling" of your jig when it's close to them.
    Fish may go to the opposite side of a tree when one of their schoolmates is hooked and dragged away.
    More fish will follow your jig and turn away than will attempt to bite it.

    That's been the biggest thing for me. There's been quite a few times where I would have assumed there were no fish there, when actually there were lots of fish, but they just wouldn't bite. They'd play along and follow the jig, but that was all.

    All of the above surprised me but I think my biggest surprise was how many crappie were down there when I could not buy a bite. There are times when they just will not bite, not even a reaction bite. I have hit crappie with my jig trying to force them to bite, only to watch them swim a foot or two away from the jig and suspend again.

    How can you tell where your jig or bait is in relation to fish/cover on the graph? With a 2-D display of a 3 dimensional situation, how do you know you arenít 8 feet left or right of desired placement?

    IIRC, the "cone" on the LS beam isn't that wide. If you can see the fish and the bait on the LS, the fish can see the bait. I don't know how wide the beam is, but read it somewhere before.

    Short answer is you can't. Longer answer is that the forward view of the lives cope has a 20 degree beam. I just watched a video that claimed the beam was 9 foot wide at 25 feet. I usually jig with a 7' rod which means the width of the beam is less than 3' at the point of my rod (rough estimate as I'm too lazy to do the math tonight). In our stained water that is still close enough you will see the fish move to the jig if it's interested. Or snub it if it is not interested. Or move to the jig. look at it and then snub it.

    My rule of thumb is if I drop the jig on the displayed top of the fish and it moves then I'm in the right spot. Just kidding.

    I was kind of figuring a narrow sonar beam may be in play here. Thanks for the response
