Lowrance handheld GPS


bigrog

Question

I am looking for a unit that I can use with a Lakemaster chip for fishing that also works well for geocaching. Does the H2Oc or Expedition work well for both of these applications? Also, does anyone have any info on the new Lowrance Endura series? Are these units compatible with the new Lakemaster chips?

Thanks

The H2Oc and Expedition are great choices for the LakeMaster card. I don't know anything about geocaching but you should have all the navigation functions with these units that you'd have with other units.

The Endura series is due out in May. I've heard rumblings that there's software issues with the map cards and that it will be a while before there's a LM card that will work in them ...... I don't know how true that is, but at this time there is not a LM card for them.

You can check out the H2Oc, Expedition and Endura series HERE at Pro Fishing Supply.

I have a H2Oc and I like it a lot. The Lakemaster chips work awesome in these units including the 09 Lake of the woods, Rainy Lake and Rainy River. The 1ft contuors on these chips are incredable! I also have the MN Lakemaster chip and it works just as good. The function of the Navionics I bought (and still use only on Birch Lake) chip didn't impress me on this GPS. I looked at several handheld units and in my opinion for the price a person can't really beat these GPS's

I've never done any geocaching but from what I'v heard about it these units should work just fine.

The only problem with the handheld units is that if you are using it in a boat a high speeds it can be hard to read. I only use mine in the winter know and got two bigger units for the boat.

I know several people who have used the Lowrance H2O for geocaching and they love it.

There is no doubt that a Garmin is the defacto standard for geocaching but if you will ever use your GPS for fishing then I recomend purcasing the Lowrance.

The H20 geocaching download can be found here for free.

I don't konw much about the new lowrance but it claims out of the box compatablity with geocaching.

Talk to Gliby at any state geocaching get to gether and he will hook you up with everything you need to know about the lowrance and geocaching.

      Those are some fine specimens. Great job

      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"

      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!

      I had a good start to the season on opener. Fishing was slow but consistent. I had four eaters in the box by lunch dragging perch raps. Crappies were biting. I haven't been up since so don't know how things have changed since then, but I'm sure the walleye continue to migrate out into the main basins.

      Let’s start this by congratulating Brianf and son for winning their second City Autoglass Walleye Classic last weekend. These guys know how to fish.  We just got to the lake for the season. Chores are almost done and I’m ready to fish.  red(new dog is more yellow)labguy

      I tried starting a 2024 Lake Vermilion Fishing Report topic but it doesn't show up on this board.   Maybe somebody else knows how to do it?
    • Mike89
