MaxDef Lakes -- A Commitment to Accuracy
Garmin has invested in their own fleet of survey boats equipped with ultra-sensitive sonar technologies. This fleet is cruising lakes and rivers throughout the U.S., creating our own exclusive ultra-high detail maps - a level of detail that's unprecedented in recreational mapping. We started with the most popular fishing lakes and are traveling around the country adding more lakes all the time. These are Garmin exclusive MaxDef lakes.
Auto Guidance (More Than 5,700+ HD Lakes)
A Garmin exclusive, Auto Guidance directs you to your hot spots quickly by instantly creating an on-screen path for your boat to follow that avoids shallow water and other charted obstructions. Shown with MarinerEye view.
High Resolution Relief Shading (More Than 5,700+ HD Lakes)
High Resolution Relief Shading adds visual depth to the 2-D map making it easier to interpret contours and find fish holding structure.
Dynamic Lake Level (More Than 5,700+ HD Lakes)
Allows you to adjust your maps to the lake's current water levels giving you a better idea of spots that are either accessible or too shallow to explore.
Depth Range Shading (More Than 5,700+ HD Lakes)
Displays high-resolution Depth Range Shading to view your designated target depth. If you know the fish are biting between 10' and 15' you can mark that depth range.
FishEye View (More Than 5,700+ HD Lakes)
Underwater perspective shows 3-D representation of lake bottom and contours as seen from below the waterline. Interface with sonar data for customized view.
Sonar Imagery (More Than 40+ MaxDef Lakes)
Shows a nearly photographic view of the bottom, as if all the water had been drained away.
Surface and Side Scan Photos (More Than 40+ MaxDef Lakes)
Gives you a clear visual reference of notable spots above and structure below the surface of the water.
Features detailed coverage of more than 17,000 freshwater lakes, reservoirs and rivers throughout the continental U.S.

Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.Read More
We've all felt the frustration of weeding through a school of dinks to catch a "keeper." Often the small fish outnumber the bigger ones and they are typically more aggressive. Sometimes there's no choice but to deal with it, as is often the case with open water fishing. However a frozen lake involves a vertical presentation and a stable platform, it's a perfect situation to pick and choose which fish you want. Once you locate a school and get set up it's time to start sizing them up with a FishSens SondeCAM underwater fishing camera. It can be mind-blowing just how big some of these schools of fish are and also how outnumbered fish of a desirable size can be.Read More
It’s no secret that anglers have been the means by which invasive species and non-native fish have spread to new water bodies in the past. Fishermen have even been known to transport some of their favorite fish to new areas on purpose so that they can catch them a little closer to home. And the results of those actions have not always been ideal. In Ontario, Canada, fishermen have taken non-native bass and stocked them into what were historically lakes dominated by brook and cutthroat trout. The actions have impacted ecosystems, but scientists have been unable to broadly study the effects because they didn’t have enough data. But that is no longer the case for some Ontario lakes, as a study from biologists at the University of Toronto shows.Read More
