I am in the market for a new locater/gps combo. Considering either the 520 series Lowrance or one of the carry over 334's out there. Obvious price difference, $650.00 -vs- $400.00 Will be console mount, on a RAM, so no problems with internal GPS antennae. Anybody else do any research on the two? Everybody I know that has switched to color loves it, but there are some good buys out there on the Monochrome units to. Not sure which way to go right now.

Go color, you'll kick yourself later if you don't.

There's a reason the monochrome units have been marked down so much.

I just picked up a carry over 334 and can't wait to get it on the water.

I'm not sure if there is a better value on the market right now than a 334 at the prices they are being sold for. If you can find a 332, that would be a good option as well.

Check out the post in the Stores Sales forum, about the Eagle 642c I got. Good price, and the unit is very, very nice. Good luck.

My father and I each bought the 334c. I have not used mine yet, but he was fishing red wing last weekend and liked his. I was fishing in a different boat and the guy had the same unit. He stated that he loved it. Reed's has very good prices on them now. I don't know anything about the 520's, but I'm sure next year at this time their price will be cut to. Good Luck

      I love these fish! The attitude is always fun and they taste great. The strip of y bones can be cut right out with a little effort.    I know where I'll be early in the morning May 13th with topwaters and swimbaits!

      Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay.  Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.

      The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.
