h20 ifinder Question

Question

Muskiebait

If I run my IFinder without the chip, and then put the chip in it will it still have the trail lines? and if I Save way points without the chip will they show up when I insert the chip or do I have to do it all over again. I have the chip in my permanent 520c, and when I fish with somebody else in there boat I like to take my I finder but didn't transfer the chip so I was curious if the Waypoints would show up along with the trails travelled. Thanks.

Muskiebait, the way points and trails are saved on the GPS, not the chip.

You can transfer all your saved trails and way points from one GPS to the other very easily. I did this, and have the same 2 units as you.

I used the SD (or MCC) card from my digital camera and saved the files from my i-finder. Then I placed the SD card in my 520c and imported it. Worked great. Now that I think of it, I bet I could save the files on my computer as a backup?

Don't try to save anything to your Lake map chip though, you may lose that data!

I don't have my i-finder here or I would give you the how-to, but these units are so user friendly you can figure it out.

Post any questions you have here, as I know someone can help you out.

Hope that helps. wink.gif

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
