L &M Fleet.

I get one at the low price and they were out of the color ones -- I took the last. They still had the B/W at a good price last I checked.

Yea the B&W is what i was after. no need to buy color for an extra 100 bones. anyways i also found the navionics chip at cabelas for 60 bucks. its the 06 version, but all i need is like 3 lakes for that so thats what im after.

Can you give me directions to the store via HWY 10??

Take Hwy 10 to DL. Turn south on 59. Go about 1/8 mile and L&M will be on your right hand side, across from the Ford Dealership

well the "my lake" from over by walker was on this chip and there was no need to get the new one. but i have looked at it and it seems pretty neat. excited to use it this year, and hopefully it will work as well as everyone says it does.

For what it is worth, I had the color H20 unit and returned it. If you fish in the sun, the screen is hard to read. The grayscale version does not have this issue. You will enjoy seeing how far off some of the contour is from reality. That is where the user waypoints come in handy. Great tool however for anticipating when the breaks and points are coming up and marking underwater structure. As an experiment, set a waypoint at your icehouse or a marker buoy then navigate back to it. Can be up to 25 feet off. When the Detroit Lakes airport area gets WAAS correction, this will come down to a few feet.

Copter --

I did not have much for problems relating to the sunlight and the color model. I just move it around a little. ;\)

BTW -- hear we are going to get some snow!

Here is another GPS experiment for you. Leave your GPS on over night on the dash of your vehicle, set the distance to as close as possible 1/63th of a mile or what ever it gives you. THen before you head out the next morning take a look at the screen. Looks as though a 2 year old got crazy with a magic marker.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
