Community spirit: Paul Stark volunteers to map lakes to help YOU catch more fish!

Stark-collageLewis and Clark have nothing on Paul Stark. Sure, the famous explorers mapped a fair share of South Dakota’s plains back in the day. Mad props to ‘em. But for the last few months, Stark has led a one-man Corps of Discovery to map lakes across The Rushmore State.

And he wants to share his fishing maps with you and all your fishing buddies. And with all their fishing buddies. And with … well, everyone.

“On an online forum I’m on, I ask other forum members what local lakes they would like to see mapped,” Stark explains. “I try to map all those lakes and then tell the forum readers that my maps of those lakes will be available soon on Insight Genesis Social Map. It stirs up some excitement when good maps are finally available for poorly mapped – or un-mapped – lakes in the area.”

It’s just that unselfish community spirit that makes Insight Genesis Social Map possible. Continue reading “Community spirit: Paul Stark volunteers to map lakes to help YOU catch more fish!”

You won’t believe how detailed this Insight Genesis fishing map is!

Gaston main gifThe seasoned fishermen could not contain his excitement as a custom Insight Genesis fishing map appeared on the screen of the fish-finder on his boat:

“You can automatically see the difference!” He exclaimed. “Look at those one-foot contours!”

Having fished Lake Gaston for years, Mike Smedley said thought he knew the North Carolina reservoir “like the back of my hand.” Then he saw the Insight Genesis custom contour map he made with sonar signals recorded with the GPS/chartplotter on his own boat.

“Absolutely incredible!” Smedley exclaimed. “I thought I knew the lake, and I’m finding that I didn’t know it quite as well as I thought I did. And that’s exciting to me. It’s almost like I’m getting a new lake in my backyard.”

Fishing today could lead to a fish-of-a-lifetime tomorrow

Scott MErwin CollageA fishing trip today could lead to a fish-of-a-lifetime tomorrow. That’s the genius of Insight Genesis – you can improve your fishing … by going fishing.

Insight Genesis empowers you to make and use custom lake maps from sonar logs recorded with the Lowrance, Simrad or B&G sonar unit already on your boat. To make your custom contour map, you don’t have to survey a lake all at once, driving back and forth and never wetting a line. Instead, you can simply record a sonar log every time you hit the water to fish. Over time, your uploads of data collected in multiple fishing trips will come together to form a master map, full of detailed, one-foot contour lines that identify fish-holding structure.

“Ever since I started using Insight Genesis, I’ve found a lot of good fishing spots on Lake Osakis that didn’t show up on other maps,” says Minnesota fishing guide Scott Merwin. “And I’ve been fishing Osakis for 15 years!” Continue reading “Fishing today could lead to a fish-of-a-lifetime tomorrow”
