High-Tech Fishing

What if high-tech fishing could help you find the “hot spots” and put your bait in the right place at the right moment? That’s what Humminbird’s AutoChart Live does.

All you need to do is map the water as you drive the boat and keep the data stored on your fish finder or import it into the AutoChart PC program. There are no subscriptions or hidden fees. No need to submit your data and wait for a finished chart. Once your map is live, view it with depth contours, bottom hardness, and vegetation to locate the best fish-holding areas.

This kind of information is critical since fish relate so specifically to depth, weed lines and transition points in bottom type—for example where a soft bottom meets hard sand or rocky structure.
