Maps of White Iron Chain

3 posts in this topic

I expect to close on a cabin on this chain later this month. I want to get a good set of maps for those lakes. I have looked at the DNR LakeFinder maps.

Has anyone looked at other available maps? If so, is there a significant difference from the DNR maps? Has anyone looked at the Navionics maps, are they any good?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

threeball,

I purchased the "Sportsman's Connection" series of maps on CD for the Northern part of the state. It contains all the lakes in the chain. Whats good about having them on CD is if they get trashed another copy can be printed and your back in action. Very simular to the DNR but in color for the water. Boat ramps, vegetation, roads, and stream flow. Downside is they dont show hot spots and GPS coordinates.

Thanks for the response.

It looks like the maps on the Navionics are pretty much reproductions of the DNR maps. I think I'll just stick with those if I don't get more detail despite spending the $.

      Well I know many of you are not going to believe me but I went out side (I have no clue why) and looking in the grass and saw what looked like a bunch of small twigs. Well they weren't sticks they were night crawlers! I grabbed a bucket and was able to grab 8 of them that was the first time I've got any for a long time so I missed a lot as I was way too slow went out a few minutes ago and there was none. I got them all around 7pm. Texted buddys and none of them believed me a few pictures turned that around. They all went looking and they found none must have been my area the hot spot maybe? Not really ice fishing related but its the middle of February not july finding some thawed dirt was a bit tricky either froze or mud after digging around I found some good stuff. Hoping the ice holds up and it will be safe for next weekend I'm going to have to try them for gills maybe. I've never used crawlers in the winter any of you? I've still got lots of waxes though. Now I fell I'm rambling but felt I had to share this!
