You won't believe how incredibly detailed this fishing map is!

Can you guess how many trips went into making this extremely detailed Insight Genesis map! Each red line represents a path taken across the lake.

Bruce Carlson and friends uploaded 224 individual trips on Minnesota’s Ten Mile Lake (Cass County) over two springs and summers (2013-2014) to create a custom contour map. You don’t have to make that many individual trips to create a comprehensive custom contour map of your favorite lake,  but if you do, the level of detail you can achieve is practically mind-boggling.

Insight Genesis bottom-hardness, vegetation, map layers help Skeet, Edwin, find fish fast

Skeet-Cross-CollageIn the videos below, Skeet Reese and Edwin Evers show off the game-changing Insight Genesis bottom-hardness and vegetation map layers. These innovative fish-finding tools, Skeeet says, are “totally different than anything we’ve seen before.”

With its bottom-hardness and vegetation map layers, Insight Genesis is “giving us a lot more tools to break down a lake” faster, Skeet says. “It’s pretty cool,” he says. “Insight Genesis is allowing us to be a lot more efficient on the water.”

Edwin agrees.

“It’s going to be so helpful today, to be able to break this lake down in a hurry,” he says. “It’s going to be a big, big, huge help. I think it’s going to be a big factor today. … It will really help me formulate a game plan.”

Skeet and Edwin’s observations came prior to launching on Louisiana’s Cross Lake in the second sudden-death round of Major League Fishing’s 2015 Shell Rotella Challenge Cup. All boats in MLF competition are outfitted with Lowrance HDS Gen2 GPS/sonar units loaded with Insight Genesis or Lake Insight HD contour maps. Lake Insight and Insight Genesis maps are exclusive to Lowrance, Simrad and B&G sonar/GPS units.
