It is the latest rage in crappie fishing. The manufacturers say the Garmin Panoptix LiveScope allows anglers to see structure, bait and fish swimming below and around your boat in real time, even when your boat is stationary.
CrappieNOW Editor Richard Simms had read about it and watch lots of promotional videos. But in October he got the chance share a day in the boat with B’n’M crappie pro anglers, Ronnie Capps and Steve Coleman on Mississippi’s Lake Grenada.
It appears every top crappie pro is adding the Garmin LiveScope to their fishing arsenal. Capps admits he and Coleman were a little late to join the party but in the last few months they’ve put the LiveScope to good use to climb to the Number One position in the American Crappie Trail “Angler Team of the Year Standings.”
Dan Dannenmueller (a.k.a. "Crappie Dan") is a member of Garmin's Pro Staff. He says, “The Garmin Live Scope is definitely changing how we search for and approach catching crappie. Techniques are changing and how we present the baits due to this technology.”
Here’s a real-life look at how the LiveScope worked for Capps and Coleman on a practice day for the most recent ACT tournament.

Sometimes the sweetest spot to crappie fish on your local lake might be right over your head.
In fishing there is no such thing as “always” or “never.” Fish and fishing are as variable as the weather. But there is one location on many lakes that crappie anglers should always include in their potential fishing arsenal.
And the best thing about these locations is that they can pay off for crappie anglers whether you are fishing from a boat or from the bank.
