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.

Alton Jones wins MLF round on hump found with Insight Genesis

Alton-hump-COLLAGEAlton Jones won Elimination Round 3 of Major League Fishing’s 2015 Summit Cup by getting away from the crowd fishing visible cover and instead targeting offshore structure he found with an Insight Genesis contour map on a Lowrance HDS Gen 2 Touch chartplotter.

“I saw a good-looking spot on my Lowrance contours, on the GPS mapping, and found a little hump that was absolutely loaded with fish – the kind of school you dream about finding,” Alton said in an interview at the end of the Outdoor Channel’s broadcast of his MLF Round 3 victory on Messalonskee Lake in Maine.

That’s a pretty neat feat for an angler who was using a Lowrance HDS Gen 2 Touch unit for the first time.

“This is my first experience using this particular unit,” Alton confided in a pre-competition interview. “I’m really impressed with the contours I’m getting on the HDS 9.”

Major League Fishing anglers find fish fast with Lowrance electronics, C-MAP maps

Suggs-Round-3-Preview-COLLAGEWhen fishing a lake for the first time, a highly detailed contour map is an angler’s primary tool for determining where fish will bite.

That’s why C-MAP charts and Lowrance electronics are so valuable to Major League Fishing anglers in Cup and Select events, in which they get no practice time before competing on lakes they’ve often never been to – or even seen.

Unlike Bassmaster Elite Series and FLW Tour tournaments, Major League Fishing Cup and Select competitions do not allow two-and-a-half days of on-the-water practice. Rather, Cup and Select contestants are given only 15 minutes to drive around the lake before their competition day begins.
