New GPS lake map of Rainy in works

6 posts in this topic

Two big Lakemaster boats have been recording data on Rainy for several days. They plan to issue a new map. I would think it would take about 20 years of boat riding to cover the whole lake but it will be interesting to see the final product.

The technology and technique used in those boats is pretty amazing. So are the maps. It will take a while, but you'll see a really nice product soon enough....

Are they mapping the Canadian side and the U.S. side?

They've been mapping for at least 3 months now and I'm fairly certain it will include both sides of the border.

Yup, they said they were doing both sides.

Just yesterday I put a new Garmin 750 in the truck. What a fantastic piece of technology! It caused me to contemplate how much GPS technology has changed my fishing and hunting experience. It seems like yesterday when we saw first hand how accurate GPS was during Desert Storm. Now I can motor my boat in the fog to my favorite duck blind, go on a milk run for fishing, or find the cheapest gas or avoid traffic jams in the city.

Now comes a new map of my favorite lake. Does life get any better?

Regards,

Wayne

      Can not say for sure, but there is parking outside of the park next to the boat ramp and also a turn a round road.

      Is Stoney point access open to the public or just for camper access?

      I purchased this exact boat last year just for Trout.  16ft Alumacraft, 25hp Yamaha, Helix 5 humminbird. This year I purchased a 50# thrust Minn Kota for the bow, I just haven't installed it yet.  Looking forward to it!

      Cutbait is all I use for cats on the red. Cut goldeye, sucker and frogs are my go to baits. Typically a 4-6 oz no roll sinker with a foot leader or shorter. Cast it down current and wait. Caught a lot of cats that way. We actually caught eyes doing that too but not many. Haven't tried bait paste or anything like that but would imagine it would work
