I have no idea on Oahe, but on Sharpe, I dont see how you could beat the Navionics.

Newer Lakemaasters will not work in your HDS. Youll have to find an older version somewhere.

Yep. For Sharpe and Oahe the Navionics will serve you well.

Lowrance has new insight HD chips out this year. The pro version is available now but the other one comes out in may. The difference between the two is shaded relief and about 50 bucks. I haven't used it but thought I would throw that out to check out because they have 650 lakes in HD and it isn't by state like lakemaster so fishing multiple states should be cheaper without having to buy a pile of chips.

Any chip for Sharpe is not going to be accurate after last years flood. It has changed about 60-70% of the lake.

With that being said, I see Navionics offers the Freshest Data program where you can update your chip for free up to a year, if it is new chip. Sounds like the way to go, after they upgrade cartography you can download that info to your current chip.

      Good Morning everyone, The family and myself will be in Mankato July 27-29 for the MSF baseball tournament(U11).  It appears we may have down time Sat. Was wondering if  anyone could point me in the right direction to a shorefishing area I could take the family?   First time to Mankato, so no real idea where to look. Thank you.

      I hadn't hit the river in >1 month, but last night went Fishing below the SCSU dam in St. Cloud last evening and the river conditions are really quite good for July.  Water height is at a good level and the past week of dryness has improved water clarity. (...that may change today with possible rain all day in forecast) Probably the hottest bite I've ever had in the river--Pretty much everything was biting on nightcrawlers!  (there were 10 different species pulled out in <2 hours!)  Fun Evening!

      I assume you mean the 110 size one.  I have all three, the 90, 110, and 130 in different colors.  I have never had great luck using them however.  They are a well made lure and they have good plopping action, I just can't get very many bites on them.

      It came down pretty quick the past couple days after they got like 8 inches of rain at the headwaters last week.

      I purchased The newer smaller size Whopper Plopper, what a kool surface plug.  I can give it to most any client fishing and they can catch great fish. I had  a family of four on a guide trip, (Dad, Mom,  son10 and daughter 6 yrs old.) What a blast, was going to be dad and the kids, I told mom to come with to enjoy time . We spent an hour plus catching many sunfish and rockbass, the kids having a great time cranking fish from 16 feet of water.  I said "Lets look for bigger fish."  A quick bit of instruction with mom on how to set the hook, She began catching Bass after Bass, (I had only used the lure myself once for 10 minutes and caught 3 bass.) The Mrs, caught her personal best bass, of 19 inches.  Going out to get several more, for as sure as Gods make apples and bees, I know this bait sooner or later going trigger either a large pike or musky if on the of those lakes.  They may cost a bit more, but I my conservative approach to buying lures.  Money well spent.  I got the loon.
