Do you primarily fish in MN or in other states as well? Just MN go Lakemaster otherwise go Navionics.

I have the H20c and the MN chip and it works well for me.

It depends what lakes you fish too..Myself, i fish a lot in the chisago area and love the navionics chip(has more lakes in HD in the area). The HD (high definition) lakes on the navionics are hard to beat. But, the lakemaster is a good chip too, it even has roads and stuff besides just the lake maps. Both chips are good, you will not be disapointed with either. As for the H20, i run the H20 and love it. For the price it is a great unit.

Is there a CD to put these lakes on the computer...kind of backwards I guess - most people want computer to depth finder. I have both chips...does either company have a CD of MN lakes with some 1' increments?

Again it depends on where you fish. Both the Nav and Lakemaster are good chips. Lakemaster only covers MN, The north chip from Nav covers MN, north & South Dakota, Iowa, WI, and part of Michigan. They do make a LOW + 2K chip that covers upper MN, part of ND and Lake Superior, plus a few lakes in Canada. Being I live near Duluth, I would go with the LOW chip it has more lake in my area the the North chip. The 08s should be coming out soon, may want to wait and see what they offer.

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
