I like to drop shot gobies and stuff like that.  Not sure which electronics would get the most bites.   :o

I'm a Humminbird guy now, but I think Lowrance is easier to set up to video game fish.  Both brands are fully capable if you know how to adjust the settings.

I run both Lowrance and HB.

They both work well for video fishing.

Get the biggest screen you can afford.  Smallest I can stand is the HB 998.

Ross, I believe they meant the actual act of watching your graph for fish, and your lure to be "Video fishing" not a video game.

I know what they are talking about. I was wondering what new models have that ability.

All models can do this - it isn't specific to a unit. You just need to practice with the unit you have and learn to adjust the sensitivity and settings. Ice fisherman use flashers for this and those have been out for a long, long time.
