How Garmin Panoptix Has Changed the Fishing Game

Professional bass angler Mark Menendez gives us a quick explainer on the power of Garmin Panoptix, a powerful fish finding technology that in addition to providing a full suite of sonar and mapping capabilities, also gives the angler the ability to see forward in real-time.

Menendez explains how Panoptix reveals cover, baitfish and gamefish in real-time out in front of you – it’s akin to hunting fish, albeit through a video game interface. You now have the ability to sight fish using your fish finder and adjust your presentation to the mood of the fish.
