Yea, there was quite the buzz about the ice package this past season

Used it.  Awesome unit.  Unreal in open water.  Realtime is a buzz word.  My vex is very much realtime too.  The benefit of the panoptix is seeing where the fish are moving and how far they are from your position.  We used one a couple of weeks ago.  Ill be adopting one for ice season if they are not catching fire still.

I’d compare it more to what you see at the drs office with an ultrasound image.

I am surprised you have not pulled the trigger yet. LOL

If my marcum dies, I will get one.

Oh boy. Here we go. Save it for ice season boys.

To the op. Panoptix is unbelievable. Pricey, but worth it if you have the coin. It is nice knowing which direction the fish are coming from. More of a 3 dimensional interaction.

I was just thinking, if you point it back while your trolling, you can see how they react to your offering and help decide if you should be changing something up or if your getting any attention at all.

You would think you could set it to a certain range, say 50’ back, and set you’re presentations at 40’-45’, and get a pretty good idea right?  I had not thought of that.

I want to see some video of how it behaves over deeper water. That’s the one thing I have not seen online in the other videos.

That does get very interesting footage, but do you get to see that transmitted live? However, if it works like I’m thinking, not only will you be able to see multiple lines at once with the panoptix, it won’t be affected by water clarity or lighting conditions. it may limit how far back/deep your running your lines to keep them on the screen.

Found some videos




Grrrr... if I made money fishing/guiding I would see this as an investment worth making, but for now, way to rich for my blood.

Not Panoptix.
That's been around for a while.

Panoptix LiveScope.

This is brand new.
Only out a week or two.
very little info on the web about it yet.
