New hook2 series

Question

derbier122x

Anyone have a chance to play with these yet? I'm thinking of getting one to add a second unit to my boat. I have a hook 5 already and it is decent for what I use it for.

Also, if I stay with just the original hook series, anyone know if there is a way to make a copy of the lake chip?

No way to copy chip.  Look for a package that includes a chip.   Some have built in map data.   Price on hook2 is really good.  Looks like the war is on. 

The triple shot 7 inch for 399 is an amazing price.   Or they add the data for 200 more which seems like a lot.

I just ordered the triple shot 7. Looks like a nice simple unit for a great price!

I am interested in your opinion of the unit, and whatever mapping you get for it.   I would really be tempted to upgrade my few year old hdi 7 elite or whatever it is.

Del,

From what I understand the hook is the upgrade from the Elite series. (which I also have and like).

The Triple Shot has side scan added though. Not sure how useful that will be on Vermilion but some of the guides say they like it.

I've been wondering for a while about the side scan thing.   I hope it will work for you , and am looking forward to hearing your reports, even from the east end...;)

 I'll probably be picking up a Hook 7 Triple Shot as well for one of the boats.   Mapping prices seem out of line with the proprietary  garbage going on.

Thanks for the info. I haven't checked back in a while. Life has been hectic.

      We have been up since Saturday and all we got are small walleyes.  Very windy today.  Hope wind goes down

      Quite a bit slower today. Only saw 2 teal between yesterday and today, which  really surprised me and most of the wood ducks seemed to have moved on. Didn’t stick around long enough for the geese. Hope everyone had a great weekend and good luck!

      How is it going today 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff

      If  my memory serves me correctly , yes you can . I believe that we were able to safely walk a 16ft boat through the short stretch of current . When we did this it was warm part of summer and we were in shorts and just had a pair of tennis shoes on when we walked the boat up stream which was about a 30 yard or so pull .Now if you would attempt this during colder weather like now , I’m sure a pair of knee length rubber boots would be sufficient . Very beautiful clear water with awesome scenery . Walleye , Smallmouth , and Lakers .

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!
