Recommended Posts

Does anyone use this app on the area lakes or on Lake Superior? Just interested in opinions of it and if if it's worth getting?

Well worth the $15 to get all the US and Canada lakes. WAY cheaper than buying a chip for my H2Oc. Plus there are always free updates.

I bought the us for 10$ and was amazed at how well it worked. its not as accurate as a handheld gps unit, but does the job. I bought the android for ice fishing and it helped me return to spots and drill less holes.

it also had awesome maps of lakes that i was able to fish on in oklahoma this spring. Pretty impressive technology. 10-15$ vs 300$ for an entry level handheld, makes it worth it.

Does the GPS on the iphone run of satellites or towers? I asked that question before somewhere else and heard both answers.I head to the Finland area alot with no cell service. Gunflint Lake area jut got their tower up now so that helps.

I'm pretty sure it runs off of towers on my iPhone at least because when I have no cell service, I have no mapping

I would agree with the tower deal. At Lake of the Woods, we had a tough time getting mapping because we had no service when we were some 15 miles out on the lake....

You do not need Cell phone coverage to view a map on your phone, but you must have the map downloaded prior. You only need cell coverage for map overlays.

Q. Do I need a connection to see Navionics charts?

A. Once you have downloaded Navionics Mobile applications to your iPhone, they are resident on your device and are a reliable tool to access charts even when not in cell range. On the contrary, overlay options need a connection.

Q. How is the overlay accessed?

A. To access the satellite imagery options you need to connect to 3G, WiFi or cellular coverage.

The app doesn't need towers or service. I used mine in Quepos Costa Rica for 10 days in March with service turned off and it never missed a beat. I also went to Lake of Woods 8 times this winter and it worked perfect 25 miles out on the lake with no service. Not sure why yours guys don't work .

Tried to find it in the app store, but it's not there...at least not for the iPhone. Anyone know how or where I can purchase it?

I think I read some place that they removed it from the App Store while they are making some updates. You can probably monitor the Navionics website for the exact date.

I checked my appstore and only the Ski app was there.

The first time I looked for it on the I phone app store it was not there. When i checked the other night it was. Keep checking back.

      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.
    • gimruis
      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.
