    I don't know about dramatically, but yes it has increased my catch rate. The big thing it does (for me) is saves time, if I don't see fish in the bed or brush pile I move on. It also helps finding the right colors quicker. I'd say that a lot of video footage shot by Josh never makes it to his videos, he's just showing the highlights, not all the time spent trolling around searching and casting to the fish that aren't biting. Just because you can see them doesn't mean they will bite.

    I use a ps22 on a 9". I dont do much one on one sniping but it has definitely opened my eyes to new places to fish. On days when they are biting good it doesn't help much your gonna catch what your ability allows. But on days when they are hard to locate it can help you find them. Other days it is kinda fun to play with it

    Live sonar, because it is not always facing forward.

    Yes when vertical jigging or casting. Now that I'm pulling crankbaits I don’t turn it on. I look at it like it's another tool in the toolbox.

    YES, I use it to pitch to targeted fish or treetops or timber…… you get the message.

    Yes a PS-22R Panoptix transducer (the original FFS) although I have a Livescope setup on the boat I built it has only been turned on once, I set it up, then turned it off never to be turned on again. Mostly because I'm fishing out of another boat.

    Yes, I have it and use it. I always considered it cheating but decided to buy it one day after spending 3 hours fishing a cove without much to show for it. I ran into a friend with FFS and he said He fish the cove also but after scanning it for 20 minutes, he left the cove because it was pretty much devoid of fish.

    I found these fish one day last week. They were sitting about 30 yards off to the side of some cover I normally fish.
    Without Livescope, I would have probably never saw these fish.

    I'm not opposed to using FFS, but I do wish states would lower their limits to adjust to them. In Ohio we have a 30 fish limit and IMO it should be lowered to 15.

    Does anyone know how to rotate that pic?

    Default Do you use Forward Facing Sonar?

    No FFS for me. I catch more than I want to clean without out it .
    Jigs only , Long pole 99% of the time
