What to do.....water so low

3 posts in this topic

This spring, I installed Lowrance 522C GPS/Depthfinders with Lakemaster chips into my 3 main rental boats that range from a 1600 Crestliner Fishhawk to an 1800 Crestliner Superhawk. In a normal year, we will go thru 2-3 props per boat and unsually a skeg or 2. This has been an unusually busy year for the rentals and we have yet to have as much as a scratch on prop.

I have to assume that the detail of the GPS is saving the day. So those of you out there that have a habit of trying to make sand out of the big rocks with your lower unit, you may want to use this argument with the wife to justify replacing the old (Or not so old) depthfinder.

But Honey, it will save us lots of money in props and skeg repair!!!! Who knows, it may work.

Sounds like a great idea!

For those curious, I checked the water level today and we are 17" below our high level from this spring, which wasn't that high. So, we are getting close to the low levels we had last fall.

      I often run into rusty crayfish when I'm in the boundary waters.  I tried to dig up some solid info on them but are they safe to eat? same as southern crayfish i wonder?  Suck the heads and everything?  It'd be a nice side for a pan full of fish in the BWCA.

      Maybe that's my problem, I'm not trying shallow enough.  Good report and hopefully I'll get a good report after my four day fishing outing this weekend.  Hoping accesses stay safe enough.  Wednesday night around 22-23:00 is supposed to start freezing and other then a few hours on Thursday and a few hours during the day on Monday we will be below freezing the next 10 days.  I just hope as its freezing people are not out there rutting up the ice and it can freeze smooth for safer travels.    BB did you do better with minnows/spoons/jigs/wax worms?
