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

      Got out yesterday. Plenty of ice, not too much snow. Got a few gills and a few crappies. Light bite. Not exactly fast and furious, but fun to be out. Heading back today.

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!

      I am having the same luck as you Big A. I figure that the fish gods are angry at me.
