C-MAP Genesis is making headlines again. FLW Bass Fishing magazine, in its Nov-Dec 2017 issue, says Genesis Edge, our premium custom-mapping service, offers “serious advantages for tournament anglers who need to decipher patterns quickly and line up on prime spots more efficiently.”
We couldn’t agree more.
Genesis Edge is a premium upgrade to our free marine-mapping service, C-MAP Genesis (formerly known as Insight Genesis). While the free version includes unlimited downloads of community-sourced Social Map charts and custom-color depth shading, Genesis Edge offers even more. Its key features include sonar replay, an option to keep personally mapped areas private and creation of bottom-hardness and submerged-vegetation map layers.
Although several companies “have flirted with the concept” of custom mapping, FLW said, “perhaps none has figured it out as well as C-MAP Genesis.”
Some more highlights from the article:
- Genesis Edge’s bottom-hardness layer is “helpful for patterning fish,” FLW editor Curtis Neidermier wrote. “For example, bass might be situated on hard-bottom points in a particular depth range, or on shell beds along the edge of a weed line. With the map, those types of spots are obvious.”
- “In spring or fall,” Neidermier wrote, “the maps help highlight transition pathways in reservoirs, where bass might leave spawning areas and follow a series of of points, channels, rocky banks or grass beds into deeper water. The combination of contours, hardness and vegetation on the map paints a complete picture if the entire area has been scanned.”
