Grand Marias Area (GPS lake maps)

4 posts in this topic

Does anybody have a suggestion for me? I have a 06' LakeMaster Chip for my Lowrance H20 GPS. Was checking Cook County lakes out recently, and not impressed at what I have. Will be moving up that way in August, should I think about investing in another chip? Maybe 07' Navionics Hotmaps? Any info would be much appreciated!

Lakemaster chips are terrible for up north fishing. Seems like they want to cater to south folk and big lake folk.

Try the Navionics Premium North or Gold chip.

If its a small lake there may not be a chip that covers it.

I purchased the Navionics Hotmaps Premium 07 North this spring and have so far been very impressed and pleased with both the detail and the number of lakes listed. Here is a link to the lake list for the north chip.

Thanks NL and Past, It really looks like I will be reaching into my pockets for the 07 Navionics chip. I could get the 06 at a discount, but I think I will like the additions in the 07. Now I need to decide if I should hold on to the LM chip or sell it to a friend.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
