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

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
