I just got a Lowrance iFinder H2O ($192 shipped)and was told that there is a chip that you can buy that shows you all of the public land and the CRP land in minnesota for that year. If any has any helpful information it would be greatly appriciated.

Unless something new has poped up I think they sold you a some land in the Florida swamps.

I know there are chips for a base map of the US or at least the Northern US.

But I have not heard of a mapping chip that shows just the WMA's or public lands.

I just bought the iFinder Hunt Plus. I also got the LakeMaster Pro Map of Minnesota. I'm not sure they make a chip with the information you have specified. You may be able to create your own map using the Map Create Software. Here is a link to LEI, which will give you the available chips and software for your unit.

I heard this from a sales man at gander. Either I miss heard him or it is something I can't find. Thanks for your help just didn't know if anyone else had heard of it.

Fish Off I purchased the IFinder Hunt Pro addition and it cam with CD-roms called Map Create 6. The GPS came with a card reader that you hook up to your PC load the CDs and you can highlight any area of the U.S. load it to the card and you have detailed maps. I made a Map of South Dakota for a fishing trip last winter and the map had 2 wheel dirt paths that on it that you wouldn't think where a road. I would goto lei-extras.com and see if you can order the CDs and the card reader it has been great for finding public land.

Uphill,

how detailed are the map create 6 for fishing lakes? Are they easy to read if I wanted to fish mille lacs? And do you have to purchase a new one every year or do they update it for free?

      Was out the last 2 days. Saw some Crappies caught in warmer bays. Not much action outside the mouths of bays today. Hoping it picks up this week. Trying to learn this lake over the summer.

      The creek is still very high and dirty. Prespawn smallies don't seem to mind😁 Morning bite has been very consistent this last week.

      Any new reports from this past weekend?  Heading up Thursday for a long Memorial Day weekend. Looking for a place to start. Going out of Bayview RV resort. First year fishing vermilion.

      Looks like your neighbors old pontoon is in some trouble, only a couple inches of the motor is above the water.

      Nice fish, but sad for the property owners.

      On the south end...  A great week of walleye fishing with good numbers of fish and some big walleyes and pike caught as well. Most anglers are finding walleyes vertical jigging.  A jig and emerald shiner or fathead did the trick.  With the naturally "stained" waters of LOW, gold, glow, pink, orange, chartreuse or a combo of these colors works well. Some anglers catching good numbers of walleyes trolling crankbaits over shallow sand, 5 - 12' of water.  Regardless of what technique, a lot of good fish on shallow sand this week. Walleyes are being caught in 3 - 31 feet of water.  Some walleyes are still spawning while others are well past that point.  Different things are happening depending upon what part of the lake, bay or river you are fishing.  A mixed bag for walleye anglers including walleyes, sauger, pike, perch, and sturgeon.   On the Rainy River...   The river has a lot of current with the dam wide open and high water levels.    Typical spots in the main channel are still tough to fish due to high current.  Finding current breaks adjacent to shorelines or the mouth of bays has been productive for those fishing the river.  Once you find fish, there are normally good numbers. Sturgeon fishing is closed until July 1st.  July 1 - Sep 30 is a sturgeon keep season with one fish per calendar year 45" - 50" or over 75". Up at the NW Angle...  A great jig continues.  Fish are being found in various depths from 5' -  30'.  Shoreline structure, neckdown areas and on some shallow flats are producing fish. Again, a jig and minnow was by far the most common method vertically jigged below the boat.  Trolling crankbaits over 5' - 12' over shallow flats or sand has been productive. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air.(fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      We will be up for our yearly trip June 4-11.  Just seeing if it's the usual baits so far fishing.  Anyone bobber fishing?  Lindy rig?  I'm assuming the water is told cold at this point for Leeches. Thank fellas.

      I spent last week on Kabetogama and the conditions are hard to believe. Water keeps rising. The forecast was for another foot rise. We stay at Northern Lights Resort and they went over and above for the guests. Built bridges to the floating docks! Fishing was amazing! Hard to catch small enough fish to keep! People up there are battling to protect and save what they can.

      I'm not getting any good reports on the lake conditions there. Friends on Ash River have water in their cabin. Hope all losses are at a minimum.🙏
