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?

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.

      I don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.
