The Humminbird AutoChart PRO DVD PC Mapping Software enables you to use Minn Kota i-Pilot Link on previously unmapped bodies of water after you create contours with the revolutionary AutoChart PRO PC Software.
Humminbird AutoChart PRO™ for North America offers all the leading features of AutoChart-but with two key enhancements designed to give tournament anglers a competitive edge.
Bottom Hardness Indication delivers a crucial tip-off to where fish are hiding by identifying areas likely to hold fish based on the hardness of the bottom.
Side Imaging Mosaic allows you to overlay your Side Imaging returns onto your AutoChart map for a 3D visualization of fish-holding habitat. This feature gives anglers the ultimate understanding of the underwater world and what the structure looks like on their favorite fishing spots. With AutoChart PRO, you'll have all the tools you need to bring your next trophy into sight. *Both Bottom Hardness Indication and Side Imaging Mosaic are exclusive to AutoChart PRO.
Map coverage where you make it.
AutoChart PRO operates the same way as AutoChart by using proprietary software that takes your Humminbird's sonar returns and GPS to build custom lake charts. Create your own contour map on any lake in 3 simple steps:
Zero Lines Map Card: The starting point to your mapping adventure.
The Zero Line is the place where the water meets the shore and the starting point for building your own maps. Included with the AutoChart PRO PC software is a 32 GB map card loaded with Zero Lines for millions of water bodies in North America. With these all-important Zero Lines as your foundation, you can begin creating your own, accurate and detailed maps of any fishing spot, even where contour coverage doesn't exist. Once your AutoChart map is created, the only way to view the contours on a compatible Humminbird fish finder is by loading them onto a Zero Lines Map Card.
Now use i-Pilot Link on any lake when you create contours with Humminbird AutoChart PRO.
Humminbird AutoChart PRO enables you to use Minn Kota i-Pilot® Link™ on previously unmapped bodies of water after you create contours with the revolutionary AutoChart PRO PC Software. The i-Pilot Link's innovative Follow the Contour feature will direct the trolling motor to follow a specific depth contour. The chosen contour line can be automatically followed in either direction, or stay a set distance from that contour or shoreline with Contour Offset.
Additionally, with AutoChart PRO generated contours, you'll have access to all the detail and features of Humminbird LakeMaster charts including:

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
