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

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
