Lake map ?'s

13 posts in this topic

I am looking at getting the Lowrance H2O GPS and was wondering if anyone in the area has one and if so what chip they use for lake maps. It looks like the Navionics Hot Maps LOTW and the Hot Maps North Chip has most of the lakes in the Bemidji area. I'm just wondering which would be best to get for the lakes around the area since I fish the majority in the Bemdji area.

I have a H2O and love it.. I run the lakemaster chip in mine and it does well with the area lakes... When getting a chip check out what lakes the company offers in HD or in the best contour possible.. The 2007 Lakemaster chip has Bemidji, Cass, Winnie, Pike, Leech, and a few more in the area in HD... Matter of fact the Bemidji lakes were labeled by our own Keith Dahl at Gander.. The referred to him for naming the structure..

Hope this helps...

Beef,

I was thinking about upgrading my systems. What would be a good price for the H20 and the lakemaster chip? I talked to Brian about upgrading this past summer. Always looking for imput from the "guys in the know" since you guys put a ton of time on the water.

Would a system like this be overkill for a flat lander who comes up to Cass for two weeks each year?

Windy,

This system would be perfect for someone who fishes twice a year to a guide who is out on the lake almost every day.. What I like about the H2O is it is easy to use and read, also it is easy to download and upload from the computer and it is SIMPLE... For pricing I haven't checked around lately, but if you want my help drop me an email and I will see what I can do for you...

Hope this helps,

Beef

I'll add another thumb's up for the H20 and Lakemaster combo. I know Woodman on here has the H20 as well, not sure if he has the Lakemaster or Navionics, but the Lakemaster chip is hard to beat for this area.

Buck I do have an H2O with the Lakemaster chip. Why do you think I am fishing where I am? whistle.gif

Love the unit, and the chip. Takes some time to get the bells and whistles figured out but with enough playing around with it you will figure it out!

Cabela's has the H2O for $169.00. I believe that Timberline sports in Blackduck also carries them for the same price. They also have the lakemaster chips for the unit also.

I also have one and use it all the time. They are a great unit for the price.

Good luck,

Kupcho

      Me either but I have given a few a chance to be! Like the time one just opened our door up on LOW and stepped in at the same time as saying DNR. I did not see a badge and said where's your badge? He had a mini one inside his coat on his shirt!  We all laughed, showed him our lic's and fish and he went on his way!

      Had a wheelhouse rented out of Isle Saturday through Monday AM.  Went several places in search of shiners, they were hard to come by, so had a mix of suckers, rainbows and fatheads.   Was set up in 28' of water. 3 eye's total (2 in the 16" range and a 21.5").  Two came on rattle reel with a rainbow and plain hook, the other came on a bobber - same set-up.  Caught a few perch jigging.     Everything came on a whole minnow.  Nothing on heads, maggots, waxies etc.   Popped a bunch of holes in shallower water and got nothing on tip-ups or hole hopping.  Planned to go east of The Graveyard, but I thought I should get home before the ice storm hit.

      I'm sure it will be pretty slushy this weekend. But it will refreeze next week end. If the forecast is right anyway!

      I'm not really complaining, just sharing my experience.  And i never had any preconceived notion that all CO's were pricks, it just sucks that the one experience I had was far from pleasant.   One of my favorite shows is North Woods Law - the one where they follow the Maine DNR around.  Anyways,  not sure if they're just being nice because of the cameras, but they all seem like stand-up guys and are pretty good communicators.   I've always had respect for those guys and the work that they do.  All I would ask for in return is mutual respect and a simple "have a good day".

      What are the slop conditions looking like on area lakes?
