Want to catch more fish? Understanding the map of your lake makes it a lot easier! If you’re using modern electronics there are some amazing tricks that make it even better. Today Tim shows how to highlight depth zones, adjust lake levels, and select prime fishing locations. If you’re using a traditional paper lake map this information still applies. Spend less time searching and more time catching with these quick adjustments!
Tim begins by showing the difference between base map software and aftermarket mapping chips. He goes on to assume you’re using some version of a map card in order to get accurate contour lines. Tim uses his Humminbird Solix to show a variety of structures and how they appear on the map then goes on to teach the subtle differences that will save you a ton of searching and fishing time!
If you want to become a more efficient angler you need to get comfortable reading a map of your lake. You don’t need an expensive unit and software to be a great angler, you can get by with a simple paper map, but good electronics make it much, much easier. Below is a breakdown of the unit and cards Tim was using in the video as well as a few other options he recommends at various price points.

Keeping your electronics screen clean is really important. The best product we’ve found to do that is Wave Away. It cleans finger prints and water spots with very little effort instead of scrubbing at the screen until your hands hurt.
