LAKE MAPS ON CD ROM QUESTION?

3 posts in this topic

I recently purchased a sportsman's connection cd rom so I could get gps way points then print a map, but when trying to run the darn thing all the letters and words get all streched out, the screen starts to lock up. I've got at least twice the requirements needed to run this thing. Is it possible to have a bad cd? any of you guys tryed this disc?

If you were able to install the software off the CD, you probably don't have a bad CD. Based on what you are saying, you may have a screen resolution issue. Check on the requirements if there is any mention of screen resolution settings. Many applications are developed for a specific monitor resolution setting (e.g. 800x600). You can test this by changing your monitor resolution as follows:

Start->Settings->Control Panel->Display

Click the "Settings" tab

Under the "Screen area" section you can scroll to change the resolution

However, I would recommend registering your software so you can contact their tech support (URL's below). Not only will you be entitled to support, it looks like you also get one major product update for free if you register.

Thanks C.B. I'll try what you said and see how it works, but I'm still not sure if the program down loaded I can't see to find it any where confused.gif

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?
