As a UFX fishing guide, Lure Fishing Guide has also had Livescope technology on board for many years. With this revolutionary technology, we no longer see the past on our sonars, but we get a live image of what is happening under water.
Setup: big shads, heavy heads, rigged above and below, close on the head.
Followers strikes and misses
The first video shows the most ideal situation. We keep a soft bait close to the ground. A shadow breaks loose and hits the shad immediately. Fish on!
The second video initially shows the biggest frustration of every livescope angler. The fish almost touches the soft bait, sinks back, comes again....and then gives up. From second 13 you see on the far left that there is a fish hanging under the soft bait. For a moment it seems that the fish has disappeared, only to pop up again in second 28. Fish on!
Everything is going well in this video.... for a while. You see several fish going under both soft baits and the fish that goes under the right soft bait turns and immediately jumps at it only to fall off again very quickly.
You then see a fish passing under the middle soft bait , which cannot yet be tempted to get off the ground. But when he arrives at the leftmost soft bait, he doesn't hesitate for a second and bites hard. Unfortunately, this fish also falls off after being drilled for about 8 seconds.
The last video gives perhaps the most realistic picture. Despite the stutters during the recording, you see how many fish react, follow, turn, hang behind a soft bait, sink back, bite and miss. Remember: just keep breathing and enjoy, because this is live action at its best!
