Has anyone used the Magellan Mapsend Bluenav SD card for Lake of the Woods? Would like to know what people think and if it's worth the $$$.

I have the L.O.W. Blue Nav charts to go with my Magellan Meridian Platinum. The structural hazards and sailing routes are well marked. For fishing, however it is a joke in that the only depth contours that are gradiated are 6.4 and 9.6 ft. I wrote a letter to Magellan conveying my disappointment, but have not had any response...not even a "tough nuts". I would never buy another Magellan product since Lowrance and Garmin are so much more oriented to the hunter/fisher.

I have the Navionics map chip in my Lowrance LCX 15 and it works great. It is just like looking at the lake charts that the Canadian government publishes. I can't speak to the quality of a Magellan unit but I am happy with my Lowrance. You may wish to look in to whether or not Navionics makes a map chip that works in a Magellan unit. I have the Lake Superior extra large map chip. I believe that the Ontario chip also includes Lake of the Woods.

My son uses the Lowrance unit and the Navionics MC card. Eastwind is correct about the detail. Since Navionics makes the Blue Nav charts sold under the Magellan name, I was expecting the same type of detail. Big disappointment!!! To get back to the original question...As yet, I don't find the Blue Nav mapping chart for L.O.W. to be worth the money and will not purchase another Map Send product until I get some assurance the actual detail is comparable to that shown on the Magellan website advertising.

      Nice fish Reid, We saw lots of clouds coming out of the mud also, but didn't know what was hatching.  Did see lots of dragonfly's, but not much for fishflies or mayflies in the air.  We didn't have any big fish luck for found keeper fish in the first rock edges around the mud. A guy in our resort claimed he caught a 32" Walleye, but we didn't see any pic's, so not verified, although had several witnesses that confirmed it.  Would have been nice to see it though.

      Bass is my favorite fish to eat.    I always keep them.   If anyone told me not to I would tell them to go to [email protected]#$.    I always eat everything I catch. Catch and release is a choice not a law.   As long as people eat what they catch I have no problem with what ever they catch.   Those who waste fish I have a problem with or those who catch and release too much and end up killing fish I even have a bigger problem with.   Don

      The OP specifically requested advice on how to best address what he personally considers an issue; respectfully. And yes, I do agree, and therefore respect his request enough to answer it; respectfully. I’ve personally dealt with the same conflict of interest in the past and feel that I understand the emotions on both sides enough to offer qualified advice that is more practical and useful than just saying mind your own darn business.

      Hit BSL on Friday to tryand find those slabs again... They were right in the same area as the last time I was out, but could not get one to bite to save my life... They were taunting me jumping all around me... I got some walleyes, nothing over 14" though... The bugs were horrible on the north side, so bad they drove me to the south side haha.

      If someone is legal keeping 15"+ bass, it's none of your business whether they keep 15"+ fish or not. Just walk away and leave it alone.  If you want to change the regulations, try doing it in the proper manner instead of a confrontation at the boat ramp.  I don't know how others would react, but if you approached me, it certainly wouldn't be positive experience.

      so what do have against harpooners?????  the Indians did it before us????????????

      28.5, but the fattest walleye we’ve seen. My dad and I both agreed it was a bigger fish than my 30 last summer. Wish we would have weighed it but I would rather have the fish swim off healthy!

      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.
