Not sure about MN trax or Nav. but Lowrance has both lakes in hd with pretty acurate depths on both lakes.

Lakemaster has a good hi-def map of Green . Not sure about Koronis. New lakemaster chip will not work in Lowrwance units, they were bought out.

Think you have to have a bird to run them now. I like the 2007 lakemaster the best or whatever year it is blue on blue. Otherwise, have started using the navionics more often. For what ever reason, i think they display the more gradual transition lines better from the expanded view. When the view in narrowed down there is not much of a difference. Coke/Pepsi debate....I like Coke better by the way.....

do you know if an older chip will work in the new HDS Gen2? I was thinking of getting one but have several chips I don't want to waste or replace.

Here are some screen shots of Navionics on my computer app. this is in meters, but the chip is in feet just to give an idea.

Lakemaster 2009 & 2010 have both in high def for lowrance. Sadly these are already getting hard to get your hands on. If you run hummingbird you're in the clear with current chips.

Take a look at Navionics Mobile maps for I pad or Andorid tablets. Have some friends who use it and it is a lot cheaper than the chip, if you have a tablet. Kirt is yours the app for the laptop or the mobile?

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      Guessing u aren't from the 218. I went 2 the Virginia n Chisholm lucky 7s today n both locations had shiners.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..
