Pondering on getting live scope just like getting people’s two cents worth on it will be used for bass fishing mostly

I had livescope for a while. While it is really really cool and fun to use, I can't honestly say it caught me more bass though. You see so many fish on it but it's really hard to tell what is what with how many different species of big fish we have swimming around. For every fish I picked up using it, I probably wasted as much time fishing for things I could see and not catch.

If you crappie fish I would say it is a must have though, you can see every one of those little guys in a brush pile and how they react to your lure.

I ended up replacing mine with a 360, and for how I fish it is a way better match for me.

Livescope looks cool but again it is still forward facing or atleast you have to manually turn it to where you want it to point. I'm sticking with my 360 because I have HB. I'm sure for some people they love it. It's a choice you are going to have to make for yourself.

Its priceless.. I use my 360 to see whats around me then my live on my tm to look in there and see if there is fish etc..

I caught fish I found with it within 10 minutes of launching the first time I used it and only knew how to turn it on..

I could post stories for days. It is legit. I only fish for bass.

Having both would be pretty nuts, I could see them working together really well. Like you though seeing whats around you with the 360 gets you knowing where to look a lot quicker. If you could only have one, which would you pick?

Dunno which I would pick if I could only have one. I guess if it was budget Id have the cheapest one. Im not in that position.

I can't imagine bass fishing without it. I can't even begin to count the number of bass I've caught with Livescope that I wouldn't have without it. Last Sunday I was fishing a cove with tons of trees. I went across the creek channel and saw four bass swimming on my Livescope. They were in open water suspended about 12' in 30' of water. I threw my crankbait and watched it go about 2' above them. Saw one of them start to go after it then went back with the others. Threw back again and stopped the crank bait right above them. Two of them came up to check it out and one of those hit it. It was a little over 4#, which is a pretty good bass up here. No way would I have caught that fish without Livescope.

I have many similar stories. One of them was in front of a guide and two clients at Welsh last spring. I would bet that guide has Livescope now.

I havent used mine in texas yet but Im excited. I can tell a 2 from a 4 lb bass pretty well up here in Iowa... I can catch the ones I see easy enough that I usually pull a few just to confirm. But Im really curious what 6-7-8 lb are going to look like!

Be cool if someone had a screen shot of a giant bass on it.


When I am not fishing I am thinking about fishing. And mostly what I should have done differently my last trip!
