Electronic Mapping 101

Electronics have changed fishing forever, but learning to read those maps is the key to using them effectively.

Triton Boats pro-staffer Mickey Beck discusses the finer points of lake-map reading. While it's easy to get caught up in all the newer features of today's electronics, Mickey reminds us to understand how to read the maps first. 

Catching the fish is only one part of the game, and learning to use your maps is step one.

The next step is locating the hot spots and marking waypoints, which is the key to staying on a consistent bite and maximizing your time on the water. Using your maps effectively leads to more efficiency in finding fish no matter where you're hitting the water.
