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

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.
