I have the 28cHD just because the 27 wasn't available at the time I purchased my boat. They are identical other than the fact that the 28 has an internal hard drive. I don't do any sonar logging so I can't say that it really makes that much of a difference to me. Obviously you can store more on the HD than you can with the standard memory that a typical graph has, but I wouldn't hesitate getting the 27. If I were to start logging data for some reason such as building my own topo maps then it may be more important, but the memory isn't an issue in my situation.

If you also don't care about the memory, then I'd save the money and get the 27. I can't say anything bad about my 28 so far. Great screen resolution and haven't had some of the problems others have had with other newer models losing bottom at speed, etc. I don't plan on updating the software anytime soon either because I don't want to get a buggy program!

I just got the 27c and I cannot be any happier. The 2" diag extra of screen correspond at actually almost double viewable size. I ma learning all the features it has and I cannot stop saying "wow" every time it turns on....

If you need recording check the SD max memory size you can add, if it's 2 or 4 gb I wouldn't need the hard drive, which adds weight also.

      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find

      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way
    • meerkat
      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
