If you have a H20 with the lakemaster chip in it, they have the cribs marked on the grid.

I dont know of any where else to find it.

The Upper Red Lake Area assocation website has them posted aas that was the group that created and installed them. Actaully a very interesting tale of a small organazation pulling together to acheive big things. They are a Fishing Minnesota sponsor and sponsored by FM, the crib pojects where one of many things done by a memeber driven organazation such as the Upper Red Lake Assocation, this Assocation also does beach clean up every spring and many other great things for the Upper Red Lake area. Sadly the ,membership is dwindling making projects such as the cribs and beach clean-up harder and harder to achieve.

In 1998 after the collapse of the walleyes the URLAA was down to 5 members. It was Upper Red Lake's darkest hour. I will be forever thankfull to all the people statewide that joined the URLAA and started to get things done. For instance I do not think that many people know that every crib put in the lake was Sponsered by a fisherman or business paying $250 for the materials to get that crib in the lake. Building and installing the cribs was done with volunteer help.

It was well worth a little hard work. I will be forever grateful for the friendships that were made over the years. It does not seem like it has been that long since it all started. Now I just need to get up there and get my attitude adjusted!

Thanks guys! I also found the gps crib coordinates on my lowrance xog. i bought the topo map at cabelas and downloaded all the lakes in the upper half of the US. i highly recommend the topo map from cabelas. it is just like the lake master chips. Have the cribs moved at all? 2 years ago we lost a anker in one. the last 2 years i fished the last weekend in may. the fishing was hot. i am going to plan another trip this year. how does the last weekend in may sound?? to early or to late?? thanks for the info

      That's great. I feel the same about mine.😁

      Well I don't have any inside info on a hot bite but have heard it's still a jig and minnow bite on the edge of flats in 7-12 of water.  If the wind is pounding into a flat I would recommend heading shallow and trolling cranks.  This would be a good option to at least find a spot to slow down and jig the edge once you've cover water and find fish.  I've done well on these flats all summer long if the wind is blowing into them.    Good luck!

      this is what mine looks like

      I forgot about the speed issues with these transducers.   I also have a high speed dual frequency transducer mounted.  I run it as my primary and do a split screen when I want to see the side imaging.  Generally the side imaging works best under 6 mph with 2-3 mph being optimal.

      I agree you need to move it left to get away from the line of rivets. Then it's a matter of adjusting vertically and tilting it front to back/ up or down. The newer monster size SI ducers can be tough to get positioned right. That's why lots of guys run a second 2d ducer with a splitter cable which automatically switches in when the 2d signal from the SI ducer is lost. My boat is a Alumacraft Classic 165 tiller 50hp, top speed 29 mph. I was able to get position tweaked on it so I have SI, DI and 2d on plane, but it took a lot of adjusting. I resorted to mounting  a camera on a mini tripod and holding it over the transom to video the ducer underway. That helped, but still a PITA. Good luck.

      I would try moving it about 1-3 inches to the left.  It's sitting right behind a row of rivets which would cause turbulence and issues with readings.  You might also be picking up prop turbulence in that location that close to the centerline and on that side.  Seems the side imaging transducers are more sensitive for placement due to the issues your having and blocking the signal one side or the other.   The other side of the outboard could be a better option unless you have something else mounted there to help with prop turbulence.

      Awesome!! Looks a bit spoiled maybe!!!👍🤣

      New 2020 1875 Pro Guide. Helix 12 Mega SI graph. Can't read bottom when up on plane. I was going to adjust the transducer and this is what I found. Isn't the first rule in transducer placement to put it where there is "clean", undisturbed water flow?? It is below the bottom of the boat, maybe too far. It's a side imaging transducer so I feel the riggers wanted it close to the center of the boat. Where have others placed a side imaging transducer and have it read bottom when up on plane? I don't think you can move it closer to the center line. If you move it to the left of it's current position, the is the power strake in the front 1/3 of the boat. Any help is appreciated!!

      There is one pump for both live wells and the bait well up front. I'll ask the dealer when I take it in to get fixed.
