Keith Combs is a great crankbait angler and he excels at offshore bass fishing. In this bass fishing instructional video seminar, Keith demonstrates how he uses Humminbird's LakeMaster Plus maps to highlight depth zones of interest, see satellite images to locate docks & trees and develop seasonal patterns with a Humminbird Helix 15 sonar GPS while scanning at Lake Hartwell. Keith does a full seasonal breakdown with the unit, highlighting and discussing some key areas he fishes through different times of the year.
