C-MAP Genesis Edge bottom-hardness, vegetation, map layers help Skeet Reese find fish fast

Skeet-Cross-CollageIn the video below, Lowrance Pro Skeet Reese shows off C-MAP’s game-changing Genesis Edge bottom-hardness and vegetation map layers. These innovative fish-finding tools, he says, are “totally different than anything we’ve seen before.”

With its bottom-hardness and vegetation map layers, C-MAP Genesis (formerly called “Insight Genesis”) is “giving us a lot more tools to break down a lake” faster, says Skeet, a former Bassmaster Classic Champion and current Major League Fishing competitor. “It’s pretty cool. [It’s] allowing us to be a lot more efficient on the water.”

Skeet’s observations came prior to launching on Louisiana’s Cross Lake in a sudden-death round of a Major League Fishing Challenge Cup competition. All boats in MLF Challenge Cup events are outfitted with Lowrance GPS/sonar units loaded with C-MAP contour charts. Select C-MAP charts are exclusive to Lowrance, Simrad and B&G sonar/GPS units.

GoFREE launches Map& Win! program at FLW College Championship

FLW-College-Natl-Champ-Registration-COLLAGEThursday, April 15, 2015 – If the team that wins the FLW College Fishing National Championship this week maps its winning spot with Insight Genesis, it will walk off the weigh-in stage with more hardware than just the tournament trophy – it will also win a Lowrance HDS-12 Gen-2 Touch sonar/GPS fish-finder.

That’s the prize in GoFREE’s new Map & Win! contingency-award program for contestants in the Insight Genesis College Cup. GoFREE is the newest brand from Navico, parent company of Lowrance, Simrad and B&G. Insight Genesis is GoFree’s revolutionary custom mapping program exclusive to Lowrance, Simrad and B&G sonar/GPS units. College Cup is a year-long contest in which FLW and B.A.S.S. collegiate anglers can win thousands of dollars’ worth of Lowrance HDS Gen-2 Touch units by logging sonar data used to create custom fishing charts with one-foot contours, a vegetation-map layer and a bottom-hardness map. To claim the prize, a College Cup-registered angler must win an FLW or B.A.S.S. college fishing tournament after mapping 100 acres or more of the tournament waters with Insight Genesis.

“Mapping your spots while graphing them in practice already pays off for College Cup anglers, in terms of locating humps and holes, ditches and drains, submerged vegetation and hard-bottom sweet spots that other fishing maps just don’t show,” says GoFREE’s Greg Huff, a custom-mapping expert. “The Map & Win! contingency program creates yet another pay-off for mapping your own success – an HDS-12 Gen2 Touch unit!” Continue reading “GoFREE launches Map& Win! program at FLW College Championship”

A tool designed for open-water fishing will help you pull more fish through the ice this winter – Insight Genesis, Lowrance’ custom lake-mapping service.

“Insight Genesis offers several fish-finding tools that are simply not available with any other flasher/depth finder system on the market,” says Lowrance Pro-Staffer Reid Miller. “It’s an extraordinary tool, which I’m using extensively in the open-water season to improve my ice-fishing success this winter.”

Insight Genesis is the innovative, online service that empowers anglers to create custom lake maps from sonar data recorded with the Lowrance sonar unit on their own boats. If you record sonar logs while fishing from the boat in the late fall, the maps you create will help you find fish through the ice in the winter.
