I dont know about the Lakemaster but the new navionics LOTW+2K has newly mapped charts of Kab and LOTW in 1' contours. It also has ML in "high-def" 1' contours, but Red is just the standard DNR map. I believe that Lakemaster has Red in high-def 6" contours this year.

I'd suggest looking at the lakes included in each, especially the surveyed 1' contour lakes, and decide which is best for you. I think that they both run $99. Lakemaster has all of MN covered, where the Navionics has only the northen 1/2 of MN, but also gives you Lake Superior, part of Ontario, and all of North Dakota.

Lots to compare and only you are going to be able to figure out which is the best for you. I chose the Nav, cause i never fish south of ML. Check each site for a full list of lakes on each.

Navionics chip is $150 unless you have a trade in.

The regular Navionics is $150 but the LOTW chip is $99... just an FYI.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
