MMC or SD card for lowrance H2O

10 posts in this topic

HAs anyone try using the map create 6 with these cards to make contour maps for different lakes to use in the H2O? I was looking at the lakemaster chip, but it does not have a lot of the lakes I fish. Am looking to creating my own list with the create map. Most of the fishing I do are lakes around Duluth and up towards the range.

thanks

I would save yourself a ton of time and effort and just go with the Navionics chip. You will be way ahead in the long run and I know you will be more than happy with the chip.

You don't make countour maps with Mapcreate.

Which chip you would want would depend on what lakes you fish.

I prefer Lakemaster 07 it's a lot better chip for me.

What lakes do you fish?

Sam, I choose the Navionics chip because it had more lakes in our area. You also get the harbor and some LS on it.

PierBridge is right on, Mapcreate does not make contour maps for you. It lets you make custom maps with features, examples being boat accesses and marker buoys, but not depth contours. The LM chip is already enhanced with Mapcreate data.

If LM doesn't have the lakes you're looking for, see if they're on the Nav chip.

Does Navionics have a web page that list what lakes are on the chip?

Sam best way to compare is go to both sites and see the list of lakes.

just bought the h2oC and navionics chip combo for $325, tough price to pass up...It looks like almost every lake on lakemaster is also on navionics and plus more...are the graphics and contours both about equal as far as reliability goes?

Not a bad buy Zachary! I got the H20C and '06 Lakemaster chip for $279. This thing rocks.

      I heard Casey retired and sold his boat.

      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

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you
