Finding stud on a plywood shear wall

Hey BP community,

I'm trying to fasten some fixtures to the wall of a garage, however my Zircon stud finder is giving me erratic readings when I run it over drywall. I know that the adjacent wall is a plywood shear wall, so I suspect the wall that I'm working on is the same.

Anybody have good advice on precisely locating the studs on a shear wall?
