Patrat: Yup, the lakemaster chip has all of the lakes and most of the lakes in Minnesota with 1' depths, plus all of the roads and accesses on it. It's $100 bucks, but I think it's well worth it. If you want the LOTW map, that's a seperate chip. I've got that one too and the one I have covers only the MN side. I think the newer ones cover Canada too..I have the H20C with the chip in it and I just leave it in the unit for general driving and the lakes I fish. I think it will work in the Garmin as well. I got mine at Thorne Bros in the cities, but I'm sure you can get it at Reeds in Walker too, which I think is closer to you. Check it out ans I think you'll agree it's the way to go... Kaz

Kaz does that work with Garmin? If not, go with the Garmin Fishing Hot Spot Maps, it has fairly decent coverage of both American and Canadian waters. Although the detail is no where near what Navionics or Lakemaster offers, it will get you place to place on the lake, showing islands, rocks, reefs, hazards ect..

Fishing Frenzy: I believe that if the Garmin units accept a MMC/SD chip, then any of the mapping chips will work. I don't have any Garmin equipment, as I have always liked to stay with Lowrance. I guess I stay with one manufacture so they can be interchangable. I'm sure a quick call to a Garmin dealer will answer which chips work in their units.. As for flat maps with out any depth info, I have burned some chips from my "Map Create 6", I got when I purchased my H2OC. They are very complete for Harbors, Landings, Roads to Lakes, etc. They limit you you to only 5 registered chips, but you can change them anytime. The MC6 comes with it's own chip reader and you can't use any other including the one in the PC or Laptop...I prefer Lakemaster, but Navanics seems to be coming up fast. I saw them mapping LOTW last summer and even on some local lakes I've been fishing... Kaz

      Noon hour today a skid steer on tracks was down clearing the bottom of the awesome boat ramp at Wheelers Point.  This NCOR Update features Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts....It is "game on" all the way along the river now.

      I've wondered why there are no saugers on Vermilion.  Lots of them up at lake of the woods and fun "bonus" fish to catch.  Probably an easy answer but wondering thoughts.

      River is open to the Wheelers Point Boat Landing today (backhoe was working on it at noon so it is only a few minutes away).  Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts joins me on this update.  Lots of good info here.

      Good luck!  Always a fun time of year!   I just finished my last day of ice fishing this season on 19 inches of ice yesterday in Ely.  Today I drove to Maple Grove and saw three boats on the lakes on the way down.   I used to be one of those guys.
