4 posts in this topic

I AM NOT REAL GOOD WITH COMPUTERS SO I AM JUST GOING TO COME OUT AND ASK, IS THERE A WAY TO TRANSFER GPS COORDINATES FROM AN SD CARD TO YOU COMPUTER AND LIKE WISE BACK TO THE SD CARD

I have the Lakemaster software for my computer and have transferred waypoints that I created on my software to a chip which will load to your graph. I have never transferred waypoints that I created on the lake to my computer software, but I would think you could do it. You need a MMC card reader to do this.

You'll need to buy an SD/MMC card reader, about $20-$25. Make sure it has a USB connection, then just follow the instructions for the card reader on how to upload them from the card in the card reader onto your computer. I bought a $20 Sandisk card reader from Fl--t Fa-- to same them from my Ifinder onto a card and upload to my new 520C, it was REALLY easy.

It is very easy as said above as long as you have the card reader. The card reader is essentially a floppy drive and your SD/MMC cards are floppy disks. When you take the SD card with your waypoints file and put it in the reader, all you have to do is use the Windows Explorer file system to copy-and-paste it to a folder of your choice on your PC. Same goes if you want to move a file from the PC to your SD card.

I transfer my waypoints at the end of every season...i.e., when the boat gets put away I save the waypoints from the locator/GPS to the SD card and name it Fall 06 or something like that. Then I take the card and put it into my H20 and load that file for ice fishing. At the end of winter I'll save a file called Spring 07 from the H20 and then dump that file back into my boat graph and so on. I also will store a copy each time on my PC in case something happens to the SD card. They are fairly fragile and wouldn't put a lot of faith in them.

Good Luck!

      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!

      There are public beaches at both Hoodoo Point in Tower and McKinley Park in Soudan. Cliff

      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.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow
