Dredging Giants from the Deep

Insight Genesis is designed to help users find giants — well, giant bass, walleye, zander, muskie, salmon and other sport fish!   As you get more familiar with the Genesis system you’ll be used to horsing monsters in your boat.  But nothing could prepare you to catch this giant shrimp, an actual shrimp captured by a fisherman named Steve Bargeron in Fort Pierce, Fla.

Steve caught the attention of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission after a Tweet to them.  Bargeron tweeted the Commission claiming that the 18-inch long giant shrimp captured is a mantis shrimp.  More here: Shimp Article

Best settings for Insight Genesis

Best Settings COLLAGE FACEBOOKTo make the best possible Insight Genesis custom contour map of your favorite lake, pond, reservoir creek arm or river section, drive your boat pretty slowly, make shore-to-shore up-and-back trips spaced pretty closely together, and record small sonar logs with the correct settings dialed in on your Lowrance, Simrad or B&G GPS/chartplotter.  Mapping is really based on your objectives-better maps at slower speeds and closer boat paths.

Following are all the details in a handy Best Practices Guide you can print, put in a Ziploc bag, and store in your boat.

Logging speed

Recommended Speed –10 mph or less on lakes, reservoirs and rivers for all three layers (contours, veg, hardness)

Maximum Speeds for Desired Outputs:
  • Just Contour Lines – less than 19.5 mph
  • Contours, vegetation, and hardness – Less than 9.5 mph
