Bass Pro brings back Santa's Wonderland
If you think a top pro on the Bassmaster Elite Series has a crazy travel schedule during the regular season, you ain't seen nothing yet. Nitro Boats pro Edwin Evers is bopping around almost as much as a Presidential candidate these days."I just got home this past weekend from Milwaukee from a charity event" said Evers. "The event was for the Neighborhood House of Milwaukee, www.nh-milw.org."This week I am off to New York to appear on Fox and Friends. I'll be there to promote the Bass Pro Shops Santa's Wonderland.
Major League Fishing is closing out its third production on Lake Istokpoga, a South Florida venue known regionally as one of the state's top big-bass factories. All week, competitors have been dealing with rain and high winds accompanying nearby Hurricane Sandy.Anglers were greeted with 30-plus mph wind gusts on Monday’s initial day of competition. Despite the occasionally howling winds and rain, competition on the 28,000-acre lake has been fierce, according to MLF commissioner Don Rucks.“We have been watching weather patterns all week. If necessary, we can always suspend competition because of dangerous conditions," Rucks said. "But we also know that these great anglers have been in these conditions plenty of times, and they can handle extremely strong wind. We’ve had no problems."Aside from the curveball thrown by Mother Nature, Rucks said the week has been “nothing short of fantastic.”

What is it?Lowrance’s newest mapping tool, Insight Genesis.What does it do?Genesis takes StructureScan and regular sounder readings and combines them into a custom contour map of your favorite lake. You can add your own elements to your custom map, such as a brushpile, unmarked hazard or any sort of structure you’d like.Why do I need it?To be absolutely sure of what’s down there and exactly where it is.How do I use it?To create a custom map, activate the standard logging feature of any Lowrance HDS unit to record everything that’s going on below you. All of this info is collected on an SD card and once it’s recorded, you can upload it to a cloud-based service where it is converted into a map. This map can then either be viewed on your HDS unit or downloaded.What sets it apart?
