Tetonka on the Lakemaster Chip

11 posts in this topic

The 07 chip looks like it has 2 maps layered on top of each other. One is a 3 foot contour and the other a 5 foot, I think. Does anyone know which one is correct? It's really goofy looking and hard to read. I don't know much about this lake and I'm thinking about giving it a try this spring. I guess I'll find out soon enough out on the water. Just wondering if anyone else noticed this.

Were you zoomed in. If not it will be cluttered.

My chip is 5' for Tetonka.

Yea, I had it zoomed in. It's very wierd looking. You can see a number of 3 foot lines and then a 5 foot line will come shooting across. Some of the 5 foot lines don't make sense with the 3 foot. For example, it has 12, 15, 18 feet then a couple 30 and 35 lines overlay it. This is the only lake that I have noticed this on, so I think it may just be Tetonka. confused.gif

Maybe you have defective chip? Try to find someone you can compare apples to apples with. Also what unit is it in? Does it need a firmware update? Just thoughts to try.

I have the H2O. I saw a post about there being an update, but I don't have a card reader to copy the files to. I see I can call Lowrance and they will send one. The map and unit look like they are operating fine. It just looks like two maps being overlayed. I am going to contact Lakemaster and see if this is a defect or what. Thanks guys!

I know that my chip works just fine on TeTonka. As Otter stated it is a 5' map. The direction I would go is to Lakemaster as you will get to the bottom of it there. I would guess the chip is the problem if its only on 1 lake map.

I would follow Harvey lees lead. Lowrance should be able to solve your problems.

I have the same problem with the 07 chip. My old chip was fine with the 5 ft contours. Looks like they copied a their new 3ft contour map over the old DNR style map. Makes it kinda difficult to read... The old 5 ft contour map had poor-average accuracy. Im not sure how accurate the 3 ft map is.

I sent Lakemaster an email just this morning and I already got a response. Pretty good for a Saturday.

"This has been brought to our attention. Lowrance

is the product manufacturer. We provide them with the

lake information. The 5-foot contour map should have

been removed, but was not. You should use the 3-foot

contours."

I would make sure they know there is still something not right. You shouldn't have to deal with that.

      I know its not attached to you. But the issue is with it being attached to the dog and if its running full speed and it gets caught on something. The injuries can occur when its a sudden stop and the collar around the neck is pulled hard from the weight of the dog.   Sounds like to you need to get back to the basics with the check cord and get back to sit, stay and come. You can work her with the check cord in a hallway at home with the doors closed, then move to a larger  grassy area etc. Keep the sessions short and praise, praise and praise some more when she comes back when called.   You never want to give a command you cant enforce and that's where the check cord comes in handy. We have all been there before. But if your not confident with her in the water next to a road you need to go back and revisit those commands and how to enforce them until she is ready. its just not worth risking injury.   You have to make the retrieving fun and if she doesn't bring it back your done for that session, and then she doesn't get to retrieve. Let her see you put the dummy away and then start another session at a later time. Praise, praise and praise when she does it correctly.   Dogs will pick up on your body language frustrations etc.  Just takes lots of reps and keep them short and be positive and she will get there.

      I actually don't have that long leash attatched to me. Its 100' I believe and the only reason I leave it on her is because Round Lake is right by a busy road so if she wants to bolt after a rabbit or something I can quickly grab that leash. Also sometimes she'll grab the dummy and want to swim around with it so I give a few tugs to let her know her job is to bring it to me, not swim in circles. It's just a safety measure because she isn't quite ready for fully off leash training just yet. I almost never actually need to grab it.    Thanks for the advice though, the last thing I'd ever want to do is hurt a dog, especially mine. I never throw the dummy past where it's safe to walk so if she did get it wrapped in cattails or something and got stuck I'd quickly get her.

      Thanks for having me Minnesota. I wasn't able to float the Ottertail river but I did fish the lake every morning. Most fish the first 3 days came on top water whopper plopper. The last day, the water temperature heated up to almost 80 so I changed it up a little bit and fished deep water 10-20 feet and caught fish deep. Here's some of the better fish from this week. The fishing up here is great. Can't wait to make it back.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      Thanks for the advice Dave  I dont let Finn fetch on check cord any more. I only used it when he was a pup

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.
