Rino 110 - 120

Question

mtreno

ok i know there are way to many gps topics out there but i did a search and was unable to find info that i am lookin for. want to get a rino 110 or 120 because i think they could very well be a very handy tool. i have talked to all the "experts" at my local stores and have gotten nothing but conflicting anwsers. the rino 110 is just a gps and handheld radio with no mapping. 120 has mapping. what i would love to do would be able to download my lakemaster maps for ice fishing - was told by 2 the rino 120 would not and 1 that it would take the software. if this will not work then it would seem that the 110 would work fine because i can still download spots i want to try. what does the 120 do over the 110 other than more memory? if they "mapping" the 120 does is cities and stuff that makes no sense to spend the extra money.
also - tree cover - is this thing going to work when i am pushin the back 40 with my buddies this fall?
if none of these things do what i want maybe i would be better off just stickin to my handheld in my shirt pocket and my radio clipped to my pack. would be nice to have all in one and see where my buddies are as well.
any info would be helpfull
thanks

The Rino 110 will accept and upload waypoints from Lakemaster software. The 120 is a mapping GPS and as such will upload maps and waypoints from Garmin software and/or Garmin POI (point of interest) OR lakemaster software. The 110 is capable of uploading ONLY waypoints such as POI software or Lakemaster maps. You may in good faith purchase either one, but mapping is very nice. Many claim they don't want or need it until they have it. Then they love it.........Go with the 120!

To the point of it working "in the back 40", unless you are in brutally dense cover, the quadrifiliar antenna is really good. More often than not you will maintain a signal. Especially after the leaves have come down.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁
