Delorme has great mapping software and now sells a GPS that will hold all of their map products, Arial, USGS, Sat. The screen on their GPS is kinda small and overall the unit hasn't impressed me for navigation. However the ability to view all the maps while in the field is pretty cool. Also fun to play with at home on the computer.

It shows citys and all the roads and a lot of public lands. It has elevations but aren't very useful on a gps size screen. The roads aren't always up to date. Doesn't show all the logging trails but isn't too bad. I guess I haven't seen anything better yet out there. Also has business's in it. Kind of nice when traveling to do a search to find nearest restraunt or gas station and be told where it is. Or I use it to find a specific address too.

      Sounded like a good mix of fish.    The walleyes I lost were because I couldn't get a good enough hook set on em.  I was using my light action crappie rod with 2 lb test.  Even the ones I iced had the hook come out while the fish were in the hole.  I was just quick enough to get a hand on em.   I tried the same presentation on a walleye rod with 8 lb test and never actually got bit.

      What day is that on

      Excellent question. In the beginning of the day it was out away from everything and everyone. Visibility was low so I chose to stay within sight of others in case of problems, but certainly far away. Found a group of structure points that we were extremely happy about. Ranged from 16ft to 33ft on navionics. Morris point-cyrus area.   Fished that entire zone we had found, which is probably 1.5miles x 1.5miles give or take. Fished inside it with varying depths, fished the edges, fished the curves, then when it started to rain we set up the house and fished about 15yds off of everything in 30ft. Caught 5. Biggest was 10in.   The slush is making it difficult to manuever, I have tracks and am concerned of getting that stuck.    Unsure what happened over night with the weather now. Today we may need to stick to the old resort trails and work the road areas, plenty of vacated real estate out there...    Chains, tracks, or tires. With all this slushy mess... It's a hard choice and everything is a limitation.   Plan to try and work 18ft and out.... If you see a group of guys doing summersaults and bouncing around like they have welding sparks in their pants, you'll know that's me and we found some activity.
