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

      Same here, our 1st color unit, 520 c(?), had that type of transducer(blue/5 pin) & it didn't last 1, maybe 2 seasons. We replaced it & the 2nd lasted much longer.

      I had a lot of problems with Lowrance transducers of that sort of vintage, the ones with the blue connectors.   It seemed to me that they didn't deal well with being frozen.   Now I store my transducers inside in the winter (I know that isn't possible when ice fishing).   I went through 3 or 4 transducers before realizing the problem.   Try borrowing a transducer to try.   Sounds exactly like what mine did.  Gradually lost sensitivity and would lose the bottom.

      Conditions for snowmobile riding in many parts of the state are as good as they’ve been in a long time, prompting what Department of Natural Resources conservation officers call the biggest number of riders in years to hit the state’s 22,000 miles of snowmobile trails. While zipping around on a sled is a great way to experience Minnesota’s snow-covered outdoors, Enforcement officials remind riders to leave the booze on the shelf or in the refrigerator until after they’re done riding. Alcohol is a factor in more than 70 percent of snowmobile-related fatalities in Minnesota. And it isn’t just intoxicated drivers who pay the price for their bad decisions. Earlier this month, Eric Coleman was sentenced to 12.5 years in prison for a tragic incident last year when the snowmobile he was driving struck and killed 8-year-old Alan Geisenkoetter Jr. Coleman, who was drunk and whose driver’s license was revoked when he crashed into the boy, had multiple previous DWIs in a motor vehicle. The incident prompted state lawmakers to close loopholes in the state’s DWI law. “We hope the increased penalties for people convicted of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence will cause them to think twice before drinking and riding. But they won’t bring back Alan or heal the damage this senseless crash caused his family,” said Jen Mueller, a regional training officer in the DNR Enforcement Division and the agency’s Enforcement Education Officer of the Year. “There’s never an excuse to drink and drive and we have no tolerance for people who do it.” The new law – Little Alan’s Law – went into effect Aug. 1, 2018. It means people convicted of driving while intoxicated – regardless of the vehicle they’re driving – lose their driver’s license and are prohibited from operating motor vehicles, including all-terrain vehicles, motorboats and snowmobiles. Before the law change, people convicted of DWI in a highway-licensed vehicle still could legally operate ATVs, motorboats and snowmobiles. The changes apply to violations that occurred on or after Aug. 1, 2018. The DNR anticipates Little Alan’s Law will affect more than 2,000 people each month in Minnesota. But since the law requires a DWI conviction – and these cases take time to move through the court system – specific numbers aren’t yet available.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
