I've even tried fish attractant on the jigs. Now I know why I've had trouble sometimes catching fish before the LS. Yesterday I found a big school of fish around a bridge Piling and put a jig down and bam! got one right off. For the rest of the day, nothing! I tried all combinations and even tried 3 different places and they just would not bite.
    Any ideas? Must just be me I think.
    Question is, are you manually setting depth and/or forward view? Identifying the size of the fish is a key. You may have shad looking at the bait. I know I did. Try looking out 25 feet and down the depth no greater than you’re fishing. As said, boat control is the key to fishing Livescope.

    I usually set my distance at 20 ft and have just started setting the depth at a constant so that it doesn't "hunt". I'm sure I'm fishing crappie because occasionally I catch one and I can tell whether they're shad or crappie I think. Just more practice and gotta go more. At least now I know that there's fish or now where I'm fishing. I'm truly amazed at this thing.

    Many days this winter I have needed to get the fish's attention and then pull it away from them to get them to bite consistently. One of the huge advantages of LS is I am able to see the image of the fish shift as the posture of the fish changes when they turn to look at the jig. When they just look at my jig and don't bite, I start to experiment to find what type presentation they want. They usually react to a slow short 12 inch pull away from them. However, I have also had days where it needed to be quickly yanked away from them to get them to bite, but always they have to see it first. Earlier in the fall it was best to cast past them and let it swing by the fish in its natural falling arc. Because you can see every fish and can put your jig on their noses you have plenty of opportunity to experiment and find what they will react to. Don't just drop it and hold it in front of their noses indefinitely, that has only worked for me on very few occasions. Good luck!

    Next generation of LS announced that is $499 and no black box, but you have to buy a new generation display unit. It is also a 20 degree cone but the other number is different. Waiting to see on the water reviews. Also Lowrance is starting to market a "live view" unit for $999 for the ducer but by the time you buy the HDS Live display unit you might not save any money. For $299 you can buy a box to make it run with HDS Carbon unit later this summer. Doesn't matter when you buy there is always the next generation just around the corner.
    Hey, tell me a story!
