MMC or SD card for lowrance H2O

Question

opsirc

HAs anyone try using the map create 6 with these cards to make contour maps for different lakes to use in the H2O? I was looking at the lakemaster chip, but it does not have a lot of the lakes I fish. Am looking to creating my own list with the create map. Most of the fishing I do are lakes around Duluth and up towards the range.

thanks

O

I would save yourself a ton of time and effort and just go with the Navionics chip. You will be way ahead in the long run and I know you will be more than happy with the chip.

You don't make countour maps with Mapcreate.

Which chip you would want would depend on what lakes you fish.

I prefer Lakemaster 07 it's a lot better chip for me.

What lakes do you fish?

Sam, I choose the Navionics chip because it had more lakes in our area. You also get the harbor and some LS on it.

PierBridge is right on, Mapcreate does not make contour maps for you. It lets you make custom maps with features, examples being boat accesses and marker buoys, but not depth contours. The LM chip is already enhanced with Mapcreate data.

If LM doesn't have the lakes you're looking for, see if they're on the Nav chip.

Does Navionics have a web page that list what lakes are on the chip?

Sam best way to compare is go to both sites and see the list of lakes.

just bought the h2oC and navionics chip combo for $325, tough price to pass up...It looks like almost every lake on lakemaster is also on navionics and plus more...are the graphics and contours both about equal as far as reliability goes?

Not a bad buy Zachary! I got the H20C and '06 Lakemaster chip for $279. This thing rocks.

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Nice outing and very nice pics.

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.

      I’ve heard phenomenal things about the rivers, willhave to pull the kayak out and get on it. Thank you everyone for the feedback. I’ve checked out Clearwater, I really enjoyed it but lately it seems to tough for my 14ft boat to be stable out there on a windy day.  I’ve had success in Avon lately.
