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?

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!
