"Hump of the Week" on a small Ark. lake mapped by The Pond Pro
Do you fish smaller, off-the-grid lakes with bad maps — or no maps at all? Map them yourselves with Insight Genesis to find un-pressured fish-holding structure. You’ll catch more and bigger fish if you do, says small-water specialist Tim Shannon, AKA The Pond Pro.
“I am blown away at the structure I was missing without Insight Genesis,” Tim says. “I mapped a very small section of [an area lake] and have already found one major hump I never knew existed. If you’re not using Insight Genesis yet it’s time to get on board.”
Tim’s screenshot of that previously unknown fish-holding structure is our inaugural Insight Genesis Hump Day Hump of the Week. Have you used Insight Genesis to locate fish-holding structure not shown previously on any other fishing map? Post a screen shot on the Insight Genesis Facebook page and we might feature YOU in our next Hunp of the Week spotlight. (Click “Continue Reading” to see larger screen shots and learn more)
Greg Hackney: Insight Genesis maps give anglers an advantage
“If you fish a lake that doesn’t have a map, you can use the Lowrance Insight Genesis to build your own map of that lake — which is a pretty cool deal,” Hackney explains. “Soon, everybody will know that, but now they don’t. So you’ll have the jump on your buddies on your local lake by doing that.”
The Road to Better Fishing Maps Starts at Insight Genesis

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