Navionics at Minnewaska

9 posts in this topic

There were 6 boats from Navionics mapping Minnewaska today. I saw the trailers when I went by, then my mailman said he saw them and said they had survey markings on the boats. Our evening paper said they were form Navionics. Will be nice to have a good map of the lake. I live in Glenwood.

They were on Ottertail a few weeks ago, Miltona over the weekend.

They were also out on Ida last week. Must have been kind of bored because the one guy trimmed up his motor and started hopping the boat up and down, then he accidentally slammed into the side of one of ther other boats. I was ammused, but I'm sure their employers wouldn't have been. They were in big center console ocean style boats.

One of them almost slammed into me as well on Minnewaska last week as I was trolling for catch and release smallmouth action. I understand they have a job to do, but they also need to observe the right of way rules.....

goompus- I agree with you there. However when Navonic's is on Minnewaska trying to help you, me and everyone else by surveying the lake, I won't complain. I wouldn't let it get to me, especially when a new;y updated product is available to us grin.gif

Isn't Waska available on this year's lakemaster chip?

Yes it is, but it's not a 1 ft. contour map and it doesn't show all the structure that is there. There's not an abundance of structure but there are several humps and bars that are not on the LakeMaster map.

Looks like Lakemaster is coming out with 1 foot contours for 2007 for Minnewaska.

Any comments on purchasing this vs. Navionics for best use on Minnewaska?

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff
