Which Navionics Chip

3 posts in this topic

Which region, and which model, NAVIONICS chip should I get to fish Rainy Lake? I fish primarily the North Arm when in Canada, and most of the U.S. side from Ranier to Kettle Falls. Contours mean something to me, but I'm looking for the best coverage of reefs, channels, and hazards (yes, I KNOW there're MANY hazards in Rainy, but I've heard certain charts mark more of them more accurately than others).

Thanks.

chief,

All of the 2007 Navionics chips that have Rainy on them will have the exact same chart, for both the US and Ontario sides. If you are only looking at Navionics, I would base my decision on what other lakes are on each chip that i wanted.

In my case, i ended up with the LOTW 2K+ chip, since 99.9% of the lakes i fish are on it. And it has the not previously released mapping of LOTW in 1' contours, which means that next winter I will finally be making a much anticipated trip up to the Knight/Bridges area to fish for piggy eyes smile.gif

What if you are fishing Kab and Nam? What is the best chip to get for those two lakes?

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
