Navionics at Minnewaska

Recommended Posts

MLaker2

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 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?

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      9-11am was best time both days.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
