Using Technology To Catch BIG Bass! | Bass Fishing

Glenn: Hey folks, Glenn May here with BassResource. com,
and I’m sitting here with Hank Parker in hisboat with another episode of Hank Parker’s
Fishing Tips. Hank, this week’s question, it comes from
Susan from Austin, Texas, and she wants toknow, “How do you use the ever-increasing
technology, like Google Earth, 2-D and 3-Dbird’s eye views from Bing Maps, and all those
types of new technologies on your computerto help you with your fishing?”Hank: I tell you, that technology is just
incredible, and I am going to be honest asI know how to be. I don’t utilize it nearly as much as I should,
and to be completely honest, I’m somewhatintimidated, as an old man, to all this new
technology. But it is, Google Earth is just unbelievable. You can look there where you’re fishing, and
drop a pin and zoom in, and see all this incredibledetail. So there is so much value there. And the new chip and map technology that are
on the Humminbirds today are just mind-boggling. And so, I’m learning a little at a time. I’m taking baby steps. But you’re so much ahead of me, I’m sure,
but I will acknowledge and readily admit,that is an area that I need to get better
at, and be less intimidated and more aggressiveto taking advantage of all that technical
data that’s out there to support me and helpme. I’m really big into the maps. If you look now, I have two units. And in the old days, before LakeMaster maps,
I would go back and forth over a hump or takea paper map, and I’d find me an underwater
island and I’d try to locate the point ofthat, and I would go back and forth and I’d
use my electronics. Today, I don’t do that. These LakeMaster maps are so precise. I just run me a little icon there and make
me a wait point, and go to that wait pointand cast, and it’s exactly what the map shows. So I use all the technology on my boat, just
not quite so much with the PC, but I’m workingon it. Glenn: Thanks, Susan, so much for the question. For more tips and tricks, head on over to
HankParker. com, where you’ll find a wholebunch more information, a library’s worth. You can spend the whole weekend there and
not read the same thing twice, I promise youthat. And if you wanna be notified of more videos
