Yeah, if your in the market for a hand held gps I'd have to agree. I just bought a H2O this past summer myself. It's big enough to moung in the boat yet portable enough to take anywhere. And with the LakeMaster chip you're good to go!

I would be very happy if my significant other gave me a home made book with 5 coupons in it. each book was good for an out of town three day weekend for fishing or whatever i wanted to go.

Those all sound great, but my lady is already trained in the three day weekend and I got an Epedition color for my B day this fall, and I bought the lakemaster chip, works great but batteries go fast when its cold out. Do you use rechargable? I tried them on Tuesday and it crapped out really fast. I have a vexilar and all the rods and tackle I will need for the next couple of years or at least thats what I tell her wink.gif any good rechargible lanterns or just one that anyone knows of that the mantels don't bust so easy?

Thanks Big Stevie! Where in the Metro do you fish? Big Jeff I haven't found a rechargable lantern that like the cold - I've got a Coleman the kind that screws onto a 1LB tank...

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
