New map is out

2 posts in this topic

Anybody using the "new" Cass Lake map? It is by Lakemaster and the detail is unbelievable. It is a lot more accurte than the chips we are using in our Lowrance(s)... I verified many humps on the map's GPS coordinates vs. where they are on the chip and the map was dead on while the chip may not have even shown structure being there, or if it was it was off by many, many feet. They say the new chip will be out by next spring.

The only real disappointment is the naming of all the popular structure. I guess Brian Brosdahl had a lot of input in the making of the map and 90% of the bars and points and humps as you know them, have been changed to new names... confused.gif why? I have no idea. Deadman's, Buck, O'neils, Pagoda etc. etc. are all named some thing else...

They also make it into a '3D' photo for hanging on the wall... I may know what my Christmas present is gonna be! grin.gif

Good Luck!

Ken

I saw the map hanging in Gander Mountain today when I stopped in to get a paddle (for those fun, shallow launch ramps). The map looked great, but I was really put off by the name changes for the structures. Lake Bemidji map was hanging next to it, and same story there. It cost them two quick, easy sales.

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
