Big Swimbait Posted December 25, 2022 Author Share Posted December 25, 2022 14 minutes ago, Cdn Angler said: I don't much care for fish caught using FFS as I don't use it. I'm sure it requires a great deal of skill to maximize the technology, but to me it is a step beyond what fishing is supposed to be about. If one guy can figure out how to target Double Digit Bass using FFS then you can be sure others will as well. Ultimately that likely means fewer big fish or that it'll become increasingly hard to catch them without FFS. For me 95% of fishing is finding fish by working areas that might have them. Knowing that they are there and watching them react to your bait in real time takes away most of the magic of the sport. If someone went and caught DDB at a tiny stocked pound where they stuff the bass with caught bait I'd think the same way. This isn't progress IMO, it's regression. Same as baseball bats and golf clubs, there need to be limits. Even more so in fishing as it is a finite resource. Valid points that I can not disagree with. But to play Devil's advocate, the great unknown has for years been how to find and catch the offshore fish. Those fish were not being caught with any regularity. I truly believe that's why they are giants - they have never been targeted before. So I do not think FFS will affect the fish that 95% of us normally fish for. Now if the technology gets to the point that a Hackney can scan shallow cover to flip and pitch to, that would be a game changer. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
