what chip for Humminbird 787c2?

5 posts in this topic

I got a great deal on a Humminbird 787c2, now wondering what chip I can use in it. I called LakeMaster, and they told me I can't use their chip in this unit. Is that correct? Is there another chip with the good map of Ottertail lake? Thanks.

Fishermatt,

You can use the Navionics chips in your unit. Either the Hot Maps Premium, or the Lake of the Woods +2K Edition. Great Maps! Check out Navionics' website for the list of lakes.

I don't think the Humminbirds takes Lakemaster chips. You are going to love the unit. I've had the equivalent sonar only unit, the 777c2 for a year now. You are going to love the 640 vertical pixels.

Used it twice now, and so far it has been great.

I wish there was a way to get the Lakemaster Ottertail map in there. That's my home lake. I hate the idea of buying an iFinderH20 just to have that map in graphical format.

Considering my old Humminbird was new in '95 when I got the boat, it's definitely a step up!! grin.gif

If you do any icefishing a handheld is nice to have. I upgraded from an Eagle Z9000 puchased in 1990. The upgrade for me was tremendous.

      I've got a 53" ski...41"pike and an accidental 22" smallie on V. I have caught a 31" eye but not on vermilion.  Id  like to get a 30 out of there.

      Sunday was more of the same.  Morning bite was strong than waining midday.  Isaac and I managed 30 more walleye sunday morning before heading home. Our biggest for sunday 27" 8lb 4oz.  We caught 6 fish over 23" sunday, (2)23, 24  , (2)26, 27.   River is now open past Wheelers point.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.
