Recommended Posts

Deitz Dittrich

Well, I use a old handheld garmin 12XL for ice fishing.

And for open water I have a Lowrance stand-alone 5300C GPS and a 510C locator.

Now that I have the Navionics chip, I am eyeing up a color handheld for next icefishing season (can you say Xmas grin.gif )

H2O for ice fishing...For open water I use a 510C sonar and a 4900M GPS..(the 7" screen and separate sonar screen is good for my 60 year old eyes.)

Three Lowrance. ....after spending last 26 years in Tucson..electronics was biggest evolution I've seen in fishing after my self imposed exile.. I'm amazed every time I use them.... cool.gif

Deitz.. btw don't really have a category for my stand alone 4900 Lowrance... my H2O hand held is just for ice fishing or when not in my boat so I checked it...

I have a 25 & a H20 for now. I think when its time to upgrade I may work my way into a Raymarine set up, with auto-pilot, radar, and such. For now I am more than happy though.

My dad just picked up a lowrance gps sonar combo with the color screen. It is pretty sweet but for some reason it has a hard time pickin up satellites. It might just be a weak receiver in the unit but we do have one on our boat that works better. Any reason why this is?

My Algoma fishing buddy just picked up the Raymarine. We will be trying it out this weekend. I think the model number is C70. It should be fun.

I run the H2Oc year around, for now.

Fishin Fix, if you would be so kind to shoot a report in the Wisconsin forum that would be great. I am heading out there for the annual week on the 12th.

Man I love Algoma, and Algoma loves my friends! smile.gif

Cheffrey, I will be sure to do that.

Another friend was out there last weekend on a charter, and landed 30 with mostly kings in the 10-15lbs range. Six guys on board.

Wow.. Lowrance wins by a landslide! I wonder why. I like Garmin's software (both on the unit and PC) better and the color screens are much easier to see in bright sun. I use the 76CSX with Lakemaster MN maps.

I use a Garmin Rino120 for all my hunting, fishing, traveling, and farming. It's nice to be able to carry my GPS and two-way radio in one unit rather than two.

I use Garmin's Minnesota Lakemaster software, USTopo land contour, and US Roads and Recreation for highway mapping.

The unit has plenty of memory (8M) for mapping details, has nice features, easy to operate, GPS accuracy is great and quite often to within 7 feet, and their service has proven second to none. On the flip side, I would prefer a larger screen such as on the Map76, I would also prefer color screen which is available in other Rino models.

      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓
    • Wanderer
      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️

      Kinda quiet here.  Ive been out a number of times and have had a hard time finding anything consistent for active fish,  crappies or eyes.  Did ok this past weekend but fish were" one here and one there".  Cold front Sat. didn't help.  Looking forward to the weekend with some stable weather and a better bite.
    • ANYFISH2
      I opened up my by bass fishing season this past weekend with the great company of @Wanderer. The catch numbers were great by most respects.  Size was a little smaller on average than I had hoped, I kinda bragged up this little gem and size fell a bit short. 17 as approx the max size we boated on Sat. Fished seem to be in groups concentrated in certain areas, very scattered in between.  Our best action came fishing away from shore, better fish as well.  Plenty of fish were crusing on the shorelines as well they definitely ran smaller though. Wanderer was able to show me how to work a jig effectively as that has never been a tactic I am proficient at.  Thanks Wanderer.  I tried to show the ease and effectivenss of the Senko.   It all  work well as we probably boated over a hundred fish for the day. Everyone share your 2018 Bass experiences here, keep us in loop of what is working you!

      Thanks, James! That weather really put fish on the move. Our focus for the tournament was to get two big bites and catch a pair over 26". We felt like in order to do that we had to go west. We had a milk run of spots that were taking big wind so we just rotated through them during the day. Our fish came from 3'-13' casting jerkbaits, Rippin Raps and swimbaits. My dad had been catching a lot of walleyes on shallow rocks while pre-fishing for the bass tourney which really tipped us off on some locations and presentations. We only caught six walleyes during the tournament but they were the right ones. We feel unbelievably fortunate to have had such an awesome experience!
    • monstermoose78
      So so true @Borch!! I am excited to see this grow and read all the reports
    • Borch
      Great to see some good information flowing.  I'm looking forward to seeing more good reports and stories from even more of us in the forums and clubs.  Keeping the information flowing in both is essential. Thanks for all you do.
    • Rick
      We would like to recognize 4 of our best posters in the forums and the Minnesota Fishing Reports Club. I will be giving each one a special goodie, if they get into the right club soon enough. Special thanks goes to @IceHawk, @Borch, and @monstermoose78 for the contributions leading what will require a persistent high quality effort to make the Fishing Report Club a must stop spot for fishing information. The 4 TOP GUN anglers who have been amazingly consistent since we first opened up the Fishing report club are: @AlwaysFishing23, @ANYFISH2, @Jim Almquist, and @mrpike1973. I'd like you 4 to check the right club out to claim your goodie by next Monday. Yes it will pay to pay attention to what is going on in here. The fishing reports will just keep getting better. Keep your eyes open. More goodies will be given based on different criteria, like best stories in the forums and clubs, best pictures, best videos, and more. We're looking for more Official Fishing Report Team members. If you are interested, message me. Have fun and enjoy the ride.
