Hang out at any bait shop, launching ramp, Facebook or other online fishing discussion forum and chances are the subject of high-tech electronics will arise. More specifically, are advanced electronics actually going to hurt game fish populations?
“I do feel like we’ll have a problem if we don’t address it,” said Steve English, a third-generation South Carolina fishing guide.
English isn’t alone. Many anglers’ express concerns that side-imaging, 360-imaging and especially, LiveScope may actually allow fishermen to be TOO GOOD. They fear the advanced capabilities will lead to anglers catching too many fish.
