I have an older style marcum under water camera that is black and white and shaped like an older tube TV. Last winter someone stole the camera part but left the TV. Does anyone out there have a replacement camera or know where to get one?
I'm planning a fishing trip to Vermilion this summer. It's been many years since I've been up there.
I have the Navionics + app on my mobile devices and have been marking spots that look interesting. One of the spots I marked was a nice hump surrounded by deep water. There was a big difference between the Navionics Nautical Chart view and the Sonar Chart view. It literally disappeared on the Nautical view but showed on the Sonar View. I then ran the map "update all" and from the Sonar view now it was gone from both views with my marker out in the middle of nowhere.
So I started to look around for other areas that showed a big difference between the two views. (Many areas however do look very similar on both views) I've attached a couple of screen grabs of a spot that has a huge difference. This is on the north side of Pine Island near Matson Island.
The first is the Nautical Chart view, The second is the Sonar Chart View.
I always thought that the Sonar Chart would be the most accurate, they look more detailed, plus according to Navionics the Sonar Chart is "constantly being updated by Sonar Logs contributed by million of boaters."
I'm not really sure if I can trust either?
To anyone who knows this part of the lake, are there really the holes and humps in this area? One view shows a 52' hole where the other has 15 FOW.
Ace too. There were a few others I can't remember.
I don't know specifically what happened, but I think some people get too into the forums especially on the politics side. Then someone gets their feelings hurt and the swear off a forum and move on. Oh well. I still like the rest of you!
Sorry Raven, but if I didn't keep some smallies down here on far west where they are abundant and walleye weren't I would rarely have had a fish dinner. And the perch down here are only slightly bigger than smelt so it would take a bunch to make a meal. Not sure 20 would do it.
To each their own...
As much as I want to be there, I'll stay on my side and keep my boat. Three guys last year were not smart enough to do that, and forfeited their boat and equipment. Lucky to get a ride to the border and escorted back to USA, rather than extended stay in the penal system. Sure hope to see a warming trend in the next two weeks. We should be at I Falls on the 23rd. Get those rod ready Muskies !!
