Jeff Kolodzinski (aka Kolo) sits down with The Bass University to talk about exciting developments in the Humminbird product line, namely the launch of MEGA Live at the 2021 Bassmaster Classic. Kolo breaks down how MEGA Live fits into an overall Humminbird strategy to locate fish, present your bait to them and determine their mood and reaction to your bait. Everyone talks about how other technologies, like Spot-lock have also helped transform how we fish. Lastly, Kolo talks about his attempt to catch 2977 fish (one for each life lost on 9/11) to raise funds for Fishing for Life and first responders.
