We learned something new today on Townlake in Austin. We noticed on Livescope that balls of bait were being chased by schools of aggressive fish. Our original plans were to fish vertically, but we quickly changed our minds when we saw how they attacked the bait balls. By sitting back away from the schools of bait, we were able to cast into them to catch them.

Without Livescope, it would have just been a dumb luck day, hoping to cross paths with aggressive bass. Seeing how far and how deep they were made it much easier to target them. Hope you find this helpful. Tim



One 10-pounder is better than ten 1-pounders; but 100 1-pounders is ok too!

The RIGHT to an opinion does not give any validity to that OPINION.

That is the best LiveScope video I have seen yet. Amazing that we are now able to see real-time fish behavior on a sonar screen. Thanks for posting this Tim.

Prime example of fishing bait and not fish!! Find the bait and or ambush spots, the fish are not too far away.
