Breaking Down a New Lake using Humminbird LakeMaster with Bob Downey

Tue, July 26, 2022

Advancements in mapping and technology have made it easier than ever to fish a brand new lake and narrow down your search for catching more and bigger bass. Bassmaster Elite, Bob Downey, is here to share how he uses his Humminbird LakeMaster mapping in his Humminbird Helix units to quickly break down a new lake and find key fish-holding areas. An essential factor to consider is the seasonal patterns of bass and the areas of a lake that are most likely to hold bass during a given point in the year and locate those spots using your Humminbird LakeMaster map. LakeMaster's depth-highlight is a great feature to color-code specific depth ranges, which will help to quickly identify fish-holding areas based on depth and bottom contour changes. From there, it's all about trying certain areas of the lake and using cues from the fish to tell you where to fish next.
