Attend a FREE Lowrance Electronics & Insight Genesis Mapping Seminar Near You!

Seminar-ScreengrabAre you ready to see what you’ve been missing in the water you fish? Are you ready to see everything?

Even frequent users of Lowrance electronics will tell you – in hushed tones, after swearing you to secrecy – that although they love their HDS units, they don’t know how to use all the fish-finding features packed into them. “Don’t worry,” we tell them, “you’re not the only one!” We’ve even heard longtime touring bass pros say they don’t know how to use every feature in their Lowrance unit, and that if they’d take the time to learn to use them better, they’d probably finish better in tournaments.

So we’re offering free 1-on-1 training sessions from Lowrance pro-staffers on how to best set up your Lowrance electronics to find and catch fish, including training on Insight Genesis custom mapping.

But wait, there’s more!

One-foot contour lines on Insight Genesis maps are much more accurate than the estimated contour lines on many off-the-shelf, digital chip maps that not only miss, but often obscure, fish-holding structure of interest to anglers. (Blog post continues below image.)

Points that only show up on the Insight Genesis map can be key spots for holding fish.

Bottom structure like humps, holes and submerged points — that often show up only on Insight Genesis maps are key spots for holding fish.
