C-MAP Genesis Edge chart helped Jordan Lee win inaugural MLF Bass Pro Tour tournament

Better map, better fishing? No doubt about it!

A C-MAP Genesis Edge chart helped two-time Bassmaster Classic winner Jordan Lee win the inaugural Major League Fishing Bass Pro Tour tournament, the championship round of which was held on Florida’s Lake Garcia.

“I had the C-MAP card for Lake Garcia,” Lee explained in a Lowrance Instgram video. “This gave me super-detailed input on what I was seeing out there. … Having a great map … definitely helped me get the win today.”

Lee’s winning area – located on the north end of the lake – featured clear water, hydrilla and, most important, hard bottom suitable for spawning. He found and targeted those hard-bottom areas by turning on a unique bottom-hardness layer in a C-MAP Genesis Edge contour chart of Lake Garcia displayed on his Lowrance HDS Live sonar/GPS unit.

“I had a C-MAP card for Lake Garcia that shows a lot of the areas with the harder bottom,” Lee explained to BassFan.com Editor Todd Ceisner. “Those are always great places to start. At Garcia, once you’re back in the [thick vegetation], you could tell it started running out of the hard bottom and those areas wouldn’t be as productive.”

Previously, bottom-hardness map layers like the one Lee used were available only for waterbodies that C-MAP Genesis Edge subscribers mapped personally. But now, Genesis Edge subscribers can get bottom-hardness map layers for multiple select contour charts available for download from C-MAP’s Social Map.
