My fishing partner and I are looking to book a trip with a guide who uses Garmin Pan Optics so we can see it in action before making a decision on laying out the cash for one. We are open as to the lake but we do want to catch fish.

James Cauldemeyer at Fork runs Garmin. I'm sure he has Livescope.

Cameron at lake fork uses it in crappie guiding. I went to see it in action and was amazed. I don't see the practicality of it in bass fishing because they roam so much. I really saw the potential in crappie fishing when they are holding on structure. If the bass would sit still long enough, it would be a GAME CHANGER.... hate that word. LOL!

I use my live and find BASS tight to structure all the time.

example they are feeding in the am, bite stops, I find them tight to cover and they eat the first second or third time I bounce my shakey head ribbon tail worm in their face

Jeff, you are on here constantly... when do you find the time to fish? roflmao I would love to see it in action on bass. I am amazed at how functional it is in relation to structure! you can literally see the fish move to eat a crappie jig. you can basically pick out the larger fish and target them. Maybe I need to go again and try to just target bass.

I have done pretty good over the years using my instincts and a 2D sonar.



Hit up Cameron Burnett @ Lake Fork Marina, he's a crappie guide now but he's caught as many and as big or bigger bass at Lake Fork than most on this forum. I am sure he would take you out to see how it does for bass as well as crappie...


We didn't catch 60+,might have boatd in the 30
should,we didn't have fun expept alot more thie time of yearhope you get ready you'll be calling mr or E-MILK to a foods donatiom,,,Arter drin some red bullmdnd Vodlea

My boat is getting a NEW power head at the moment, been down 3 weeks... I fished 5 days straight before that.

I am 47 and retired or retarded or whatever you wanna call it when you live off your invested money and dont need a job. I fish 3-4 day trips usually and have been fishing less this year since I cant have carpal tunnel tennis elbow surgery every November.

Last year I caught 650, this year Im at 580 so far so dunno maybe Im just fishing better cus I am for sure fishing less days this year.

2.5 months on lake Falcon was too long earlier this eyar, I got very burned out...

James Davis. One of the best crappie guides around. He fishes Lake Granbury and Lake Benbrook mostly and uses Panoptics Live scope routinely. He’s mainly crappie but you would be able to see how it’s used and take home a ton of filets. He also teaches on the Livescope. He’s on Facebook routinely but if you can’t find me, I’ll PM you his number if needed

I've fished so much from 35-50, I got burned out before I retired. I actually took my boat out 2 weeks ago and rode around for 30 min because I felt bad for her just sitting in the boat shed...
