GPS Help

2 posts in this topic

I am looking at getting a GPS system for the first time and will be using it mostly for fishing. I have been doing some studying and am interested in the iFinder H2O, has anybody used this? How do you like it? I also understand that I will need to get some type of mapping chip or software. Any suggestions?

Very good unit. User friendly, durable easy to read. I love mine. I also have the ifinder Pro. The H20 is a step up. Make sure that you get the lakemaster 07 chip. I have both and the new one contains more "boated" lake than the older chip. By boated I mean they literally got the lake data from zigzaging across the lakes rather than using topo maps. Up here in Northern MN there are several lakes with updated info on them, that I fish. Very accurate. Also consider the RAM mount that uses a suction cup and flexible arm. You can use it in the truck in the winter and put in the windsheild of the boat in the summer. I hope this helps.

      Can not say for sure, but there is parking outside of the park next to the boat ramp and also a turn a round road.

      Is Stoney point access open to the public or just for camper access?

      I purchased this exact boat last year just for Trout.  16ft Alumacraft, 25hp Yamaha, Helix 5 humminbird. This year I purchased a 50# thrust Minn Kota for the bow, I just haven't installed it yet.  Looking forward to it!

      Cutbait is all I use for cats on the red. Cut goldeye, sucker and frogs are my go to baits. Typically a 4-6 oz no roll sinker with a foot leader or shorter. Cast it down current and wait. Caught a lot of cats that way. We actually caught eyes doing that too but not many. Haven't tried bait paste or anything like that but would imagine it would work
