Navionics or Lake Master

5 posts in this topic

First time posting long time reader.

My question is, I will be heading to Lake of the Woods May 31st. for a week.We will be staying at Long Point Resort. It will be my first time there and I was going to purchase chip for my GPS. I already have the MN Lake Master chip but it does not include Lake of the Woods.What chip should I get,Navionics or Lake Master?

Thanks in advance for the info.

Scott from Elk River,MN

Check out the new Navionics "LOTW+2K" chip. It has 1' contours for the US side of LOTW, chart data for the Canadian side of LOTW, 34 other northern MN lakes in high-definition, and nearly 2,000 other MN lakes, among other things...

Thanks for the info guys, I will check out that Navionics.

I don't know where we will be fishing that week.But I do know we will have a lot of fun. There will be about 16 of us and some of them fish LOTW every year.Do you have any spots you would recommend around Long Point?

Do either of these brands still have the CD (disc) to load maps into my 1995 Eagle Ultramap/GPS locator? I looked at Gander and they didn't have them.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!

      I don't have much skin in the game here.  I take 2 trips a year to Vermilion and absolutely love the lake, area and in particular the West side.  Without question, our goal is to own a property on this lake for retirement.    People hate change.  Simply don't go if you don't like the prices or the new owners.  The restaurant/bar business is a bitch so I say kudos for trying something different.  With any business, previous owners don't let go of gold mines so there was a reason it was for sale.     I'll be a patron the few weeks I'm up there.  If I don't like it, I won't go back.  Premium prices demand premium quality and service.  I hope they succeed.

      Don't believe I've made one single point actually. I've just been honest. Very rare thing on the internet. I'm sure you understand that.

      Funny you say that, Bassthumb.  The slow bite under our house was last week...my dad was up Tuesday and Wednesday this week and he lost count of how many fish they caught.  We've been on a very inconsistent bite this year, though...every time we think about moving the house, we have a day or two of especially good bite before it slows down again.
