Bass pros from across the U.S. will have an opportunity test drive a prototype of a new C-MAP Genesis 1-foot contour map of Lake Martin in a Bassmaster Elite Series tournament Feb. 8-11 on the 41,00-acre Alabama fishery known for hard-fighting, deep-dwelling spotted bass and big, but elusive, shallow-dwelling largemouth. C-MAP, a leader in digital marine mapping and cloud-based mapping, is in the midst of updating its chart portfolio in Alabama and throughout the U.S.
The prototype Lake Martin map, to be eventually included in a new C-MAP card for the entire state of Alabama, includes all the game-changing features that subscribers to C-MAP’s Genesis Edge premium custom-mapping service currently enjoy — 1-foot contours, Custom Color Depth Shading* and a bottom-hardness layer.
“Having the best map is a critical factor in fishing today,” says C-MAP US Sales Manager Candler McCollum, a competitive angler who, with his tournament partner, won two Alabama Bass Trail tournaments in 2017 and ABT Angler of the Year honors. “This new C-MAP chart provides the most accurate and high-definition contour data ever seen for Lake Martin.” Continue reading “New C-MAP Genesis Lake Martin map will give anglers advantage in Bassmaster Elite tournament”
One of the best features of C-MAP Genesis is the ability to aggregate sonar data recorded in numerous trips over time in a complete, merged map. However, fluctuating water levels over time can impact the accuracy of aggregated maps if recorded water depths are not offset against a standard benchmark water level.
Naturally flowing rivers, dam-regulated river pools and vast reservoirs can all fluctuate greatly in water level from season to season, due to both natural and man-made forces. Natural forces include snowfall, rainfall and droughts. Man-made forces include flood-prevention measures and power-generation practices. Water levels are measured in feet above sea level.
