That's what makes the Livescope so awesome. I had a big slab, that I could see on the screen 35 feet away. This was at night too. I could see from his fins that he was facing my jig, and I assume he could see it. It took 20 minutes for it to approach in super slow motion and patient careful jigging to get that fish to eventually bite. We had times when there were 5 big fish just "lounging" looking at a jig, and had another guy come into the house and start jigging a little bit differently to get them to bite. When I went back to my house there were 3 slabs watching a jig I had left down. I hadn't had a fish on my screen for a couple of hours. I caught 3 in the next 5 minutes! It was a really great chance to learn about how the big ones react and move around. It's a perfect example of needing to move around to stay on fish too.
