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!

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.

      Don't go giving too much notice there Royce!    Been kinda wondering if a yakking GTG would pop up some day.  Would be a great time to share a paddle and see how others rig their gear for fishing, or whatever.  And maybe do some demo paddling in other kinds of yaks than what we're paddling now.   Now, who might be able to put something like that together??

      Gills should be on or real close to beds. Crappies are on beds on some lakes, done spawning on others. Btw, welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Welcome to our Forum Muzzy!  You may want to consider hiring a guide for a day or even 1/2 day to start your trip.  They can give you a lot of good information that will help you put fish in the boat for the rest of your trip.

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow
