Garmin Panoptix LiveScope is among the most sophisticated and capable fishfinder technologies in existence, so naturally, we were curious about how professional bass anglers configure the settings. Mark Daniels Jr. answered our call and dives into his preferred menu settings for the best viewing experience possible.


He starts by discussing gain settings and emphasizes the importance of setting the gain as high as possible without excessive noise or artifacts. Concerning appearance, Daniels shares his preferred color palette and why he prefers the grid overlay turned off. Lastly, he provides his TVG (Time Varying Gain) setting to reduce noise near the water surface and his preferred scanning ranges based on depth.
