L &M Fleet.

I get one at the low price and they were out of the color ones -- I took the last. They still had the B/W at a good price last I checked.

Yea the B&W is what i was after. no need to buy color for an extra 100 bones. anyways i also found the navionics chip at cabelas for 60 bucks. its the 06 version, but all i need is like 3 lakes for that so thats what im after.

Can you give me directions to the store via HWY 10??

Take Hwy 10 to DL. Turn south on 59. Go about 1/8 mile and L&M will be on your right hand side, across from the Ford Dealership

well the "my lake" from over by walker was on this chip and there was no need to get the new one. but i have looked at it and it seems pretty neat. excited to use it this year, and hopefully it will work as well as everyone says it does.

For what it is worth, I had the color H20 unit and returned it. If you fish in the sun, the screen is hard to read. The grayscale version does not have this issue. You will enjoy seeing how far off some of the contour is from reality. That is where the user waypoints come in handy. Great tool however for anticipating when the breaks and points are coming up and marking underwater structure. As an experiment, set a waypoint at your icehouse or a marker buoy then navigate back to it. Can be up to 25 feet off. When the Detroit Lakes airport area gets WAAS correction, this will come down to a few feet.

Copter --

I did not have much for problems relating to the sunlight and the color model. I just move it around a little. ;\)

BTW -- hear we are going to get some snow!

Here is another GPS experiment for you. Leave your GPS on over night on the dash of your vehicle, set the distance to as close as possible 1/63th of a mile or what ever it gives you. THen before you head out the next morning take a look at the screen. Looks as though a 2 year old got crazy with a magic marker.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.

      Here's my new boat.  Saw probably 30 Verados in the past 3 days on the east and and west ends.

      We had two fishing tournaments this weekend. Walleyes on Saturday and bass on Sunday. I met the bass winners today and talked to them about their walleye win Saturday. That’s right, they won both!  On Saturday, they entered the walleye tournament but just because they were on the lake to pre-fish for bass. They fished with stick baits in shallow water, looking for bass beds. As shallow as 4’. And dang if they didn’t keep catching walleyes. Big ones, including 2 over 26”. 21 lbs. in all. Apparently, they’re pretty good at finding bass, too. Big $ weekend for them!

      Ugly Saturday on Norwegian Bay. One Pike off of Windsock Island, nothing else much to speak of. Cold and windy but finished off with a beautiful Evening. There were a couple of good eyes caught near the north end, a 27" and a couple in the slots but most boats didn't see much. I saw 2 caught in front of the beach at Life of Riley in a matter of a couple minutes.  Sunday morning we met up with some friends and went out of Tower. Dragging bottom bouncers with minnows in 24-32' produced 11 keepers between the 4 of us, largest about 16" and lots of throw backs. Best luck just off of Priest Island. 4 hours of fishing with everyone except me pulling them in the boat until the last 10 minutes I put two in the livewell. I broke off with 10 minutes to go and was going to quit when everyone said "no, keep going!"  Glad I did cause I finished strong and redeemed myself. Never give up!

      Went to Franconia on Saturday. Wind was cold and miserable! With it howling straight downstream, my options were pretty limited, so we mostly trolled up and down the main channel. Caught 1 pike, 2 smallies, and 1 white bass.

      Things seem to be moving right along.  Yesterday on a small Cass county lake we found sunfish and crappies in 6ft+/- ft of water with some crappies already on beds.

      Looks like it was a successful outing ST. My boat probably  hates me as I haven't had it out for a swim yet. MAYBE, if I'm lucky I will be able to get out over Memorial weekend. Thanks for the report.

      Most of the streams are small. Where I focus is the small streams in the back country for brook trout. Casting is hard on these streams. Some of the bigger rivers can be good. Remember the crazy rules on these streams.
