      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.

Best map chip for Lake of the Woods

Recommended Posts

ARMAN-21

I’m sure this question has been asked before, but I’ll ask it again.

I’m heading up to Lake of the Woods at the end of July for a week of Musky fishing and I currently own a LCX 37c and LCX 112c, and both units have the most recent updates available for them. I know I can run the Navionics Premium N, which will have the lake on it, as once you cross the US/Canadian line it turns into a basic looking map. I’ll be up on Sabaskong Bay and we will not be fishing the US side at all while up there. My question is what I the best map chip I can run in my units to give me the best detail? I know Lake Master stopped making chips for my units back in 2010-2011 depending on the chip run date.

Any information or helpful tips would be great and thank you for your time.

I BELIEVE the Lakemaster Lowrance version Woods/Rainy version 2.0 will work in your LCX. I would go on their website, find their number and give them a call to confirm. Then, you'll have to do a search on the web and try and find one.

I've got a Navionics Lake of the Woods +2k chip I ran in my Lowrance GlobalMap 3300 some time ago, now I use it in my Humminbird 798c, the data is from 2007 or so but it's right there in detail with my more current versions of Lakemaster and in some areas, it's even better. Coverage area on this chip was N Dakota, Northern Minnesota, into Ontario and Manitoba.

The chip has been discontinued for some years now but you can find them online on some of the popular classified sites for about $50

Look at the new Navionics + you select the area you want and download it to the chip, its 2gb max allows it to be used in older units. I borrowed my Navionics Platinum chip to a friend and he loved it, it was highly accurate, plus you get free updates for a year, high def Sonar Charts and updates.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question...

      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!

      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!

      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.
    • Wanderer
      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.
