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 grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
