Here is a link to the covered lakes from the Recreational Lakes/Fishing Hotspot "East" region:

here is a link to their Inalnd lake page, in the top right corner, there is a viewer that you can then pan and scroll down and look at/for the lakes you will be fishing to see how they will look onscreen (and /or if they are covered I guess):

You will use the Garmin cartography. There is a fishing hot spots chip for region 11, which includes most of the major lakes in Georgia, Alabama and Florida. There is also a lake chip for the East--I would think that you would do best with the fishing hot spots. Garmin calls their Cartography "Blue charts". Google "Garmin Lake Maps--and it will describe, with samples of the different types of lake maps available.
