      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

(not to steal the thread) Also, does anyone know how to delete individual icons? or do you have to clear all icons of a certain type

First of all make sure that you are working the unit in Advanced mode. If you haven't changed it from easy mode to advanced, you will be very frustrated out of the gate. I would reccomend going to your nearest auto parts store and buy an ac adapter with alligator clips and you can hook it up to your favorite vexilar battery. This saves you a lot on your battery life. There is so much that those things can do, however you need to familarize yourself at home before you are actually in a spot where you need it. When I first purchased mine, I had to substitute out my favorite bathroom read, and it was well worth it. I am still learning new things on it.

As far as the deleting of icons, are you referring to an actual waypoint that you are seeing on your screen? If so, go under your find waypoint menu and when you see the one you want deleted, use the oprions on the bottem of the screen and delete it.

Good luck and enjoy the toy.

dan z, It always seems to just display the cursor position when turned on, and not find where the unit is currently, which is what I would like and expect for the default. It seems like if I zoom out enough it senses that I want it to display current position instead of the cursor position, so it then asks if that's what I want. But I don't know how to make it do that by default or menus.

fishermatt, if you press the exit key while on the map screen, it will alternate between your current position, and your cursor position.

Here's one, how do I delete tracks? I went up to Mille Lacs for two days, and the whole southwestern portion is pink, lol.

Personal opinion, but I'd would recommend the Lakemaster chip. It provides so much more detailed information about roads, as well as the lakes.

go to advanced move and clear trails and clear trails....the only thing that sucks it clears all your trails not just specific areas......

How do you remove a man overboard Icon...I have a chunk of Mille Lacs that I can't see. I had the H2O in my pocket and now it is filled with man overboards!!!

My cig adapter broke at the plug end (part pluged into cigarette lighter). Can you replace that end with a generic?

JW - No it is not 100% because of no fuse as I wired in a fuse and it still fried my GPS.

Dan - I do not know - I am guessing there is something in that plug that limits the amount of juice the GPS recieves - so if you went generic ???? They have replacement plug ins for not too expensive.

If you go to the second menu screen and scroll to my trails you can pick the trail you want to edit/delete and hit enter when you have highlighted the one you want to work on. On the detail screen for that trail there is a "Delete Trail" option which will leave your others intact but delete just one.

Hope that helps.

On the Man Overboawrd icons - the simplest way (if I remember right without having it with me) is to put your cursor over it so it is highlighted and press "Find" and choose "Selected Item" from dropdown menu. from the menu that appears you can choose delete and hit enter.

There is an inline transformer/regulater in the OEM adapter that drops the voltage to 3.5 volts. The H2O does not like 12v. shocked

      Pat, July is my best time for walleyes in the weeds! I did not cast spinner baits but did pull spinners with 1/2 crawler right along the edges in about 3' to 4' deep water. We were so close to the boat with our lines that we could see our spinners and actually see the walleyes charge out of the weeds and grab our baits! FUN!! Now, thanks to the rustys, those cabbage weed beds are gone. Cliff

      That's the plan. I'e gotten checked quite a few times this winter. It's good to see them out. Watched them get a couple guys last Thursday for too many lines, too many and illegal fish and using jawjackers... Sure is good seeing some of our money at work. Silly thing is the officer checked me 1st, then walked 50 yds to the other guys...  can' fix stupid I guess.

      Years back I took my brother-in-law behind Anselmo's (SP?), northwest of Jacobson Point in Head-o-Lakes Bay. I was looking for Muskie along the front of the cabbage. He had no gear so he rigged a small to mid-size in-line spinner bait with a white twister tail. He pulled it across the top of the cabbage beds. I was totally surprised when he caught several walleye. I wouldn't be so surprised if he was fishing in front or down in the weeds but he was basically catching on a surface lure in 3-5' of water in July.

      Nice. I made my own like that a few years ago but without the usb port. Can run a fan, light, charge phones etc. They are very handy.

      Frozen ones work better in my opinion anyway. Haven't bought a live one in 10 years.

      We made a day trip a couple of Sundays ago. Fished from about 9:30 to 3:30 and my kid caught 2 walleye- 21" & 25" with a tag. In the past two winters I've made a total of 3 day trips and have a total of 10 walleye from 19-25 inches. I think the numbers may not be a may, but the quality is great. Very similar to the late 90's not as many fish, but great size.
    • hookie
      no live ones that I know of just frozen ones. I heard the run started good than the rain came and dirty the river and moved em back out into the lake.
    • hookie
      got a nice batch last weekend for smoking. Larger ones.
