How Lowrance C-MAP Was Used in the Classic

We caught up with Mike "Ike" Iaconelli after the 2019 Bassmaster Classic on Fort Loudon and Tellico to learn about the location details of his consistent prespawn bass bite. He lays out in excellent detail the types of areas large schools of prespawn bass were relating to, and how Lowrance's C-MAP with color shading was instrumental in finding key spots and establishing a repeatable pattern. Once Ike got on this locational program, he used mapping to expand his spots "milk run" despite not having fish some of these areas in practice. Using multiple levels of color shading coupled with sonar technologies kept him on the fish each day, and helped propel him to a solid 4th place finish.
