Navionics Charts- Navionics+
Navionics cards have been staples in tournament bass fishing arsenals for years, and pre-loaded regional cards have been the norm. Now, for those anglers that travel the country and don't want to have to buy a card for each region Navionics has created Navionics +.
Navionics + is a new card where the traveling angler can download any maps within the US and Canada (and much more) up to the card's capacity. Navionics + also includes great features like SonarCharts, Freshest Data (free updates) for 12 months, updated Nautical Charts and Community Edits.
This is going to be a good year. In recent memory, I cannot recall feeling so enthusiastic, hopeful and confident in my fishing and career aspirations to begin a season.
The reason for this optimism is primarily due to moving back to Florida, where I'm able to resume my regular fishing regimen. That was something I was unable to maintain while living in California.
So far this year has seen a more consistent fishing schedule than I have experienced in a couple years, and I feel my fishing has already started to improve. With that being said, there are still some aspects of my game that the recent Bassmaster Southern Open on the Harris Chain revealed need some work.
I'm a self-proclaimed grass fishing freak!
I love implementing power-fishing techniques to find big bass in vegetation, so it is no surprise that I was very excited about fishing the most recent, and final, Bassmaster Open on the Atchafalaya Basin in Louisiana.
In essence, the Basin is a massive labyrinth of hundreds of miles of rivers, marshes, canals, bayou's and bays filled with lush aquatic vegetation and lined with jungle-like cypress tree forests.
After a week of eliminating miles of Louisiana marshland I was able to find some productive patterns that lead to a 29th place finish in the third Central Open of the year.
Even when you are fishing good, sometimes it just isn’t meant to be.
To me, “fishing good” just simply means that you're able to make the best decisions and maximize your success with the cards you're dealt.
With a newly adopted simplistic approach to my tournament fishing, and a renewed confidence in my decision-making, I believe that I am in fact fishing well, but as is evident in the results at a recent BFL Super Tournament and a Bassmaster Open, sometimes that’s not enough.
