Navionics & Lakemaster chip question

Question

KrashR

I just got the Navionics Hotmaps 2007 and noticed that I need to change the maps to see different parts. For example MN has like 4 or 5 sections to choose from. Does the Lakemaster chip for MN work the same way or all the lakes listed on one map?

Also if anyone has the 07 Navionics chip do they have a map for the state of Virginia on theirs too?

I have both chips, the Lakemaster shows all at once on 1 map. There are a LOT more maps on the Navionics so the data needs to be split up.

Does anyone know why the LakeMaster chip for LOW is mainly limited to the U.S. side of the lake? Is this because the structure on the canadian side would be extremely difficult to map out?

mjrfishing,

I have asked the same question to a resort owner on LOW in Canada and also the lake master people. Both answered that Canada will not allow a survey to be done. I do not know the validity of this, but it would seem true as the demand is there just no supply. smile.gif I run both chips and prefer the Lakemaster because of zoom capabilities. Good Fishing!!

The Lakemaster folks now have permision from Canada and have been working on the Canadian side. I think they hope to be completed this summer. LOW is a huge undertaking, but I am sure they will have a top notch map/chip when completed. I heard they have identified some 2,000 rockpiles that have previously gone unmarked on maps. I can't wait to see the finished product! laugh.gif

      Just learned that someone broke through on Reno last night. He was pulling his 7'x12' fish house with his ATV and dropped the back of his fish house through on 3" out in the middle of the lake. Fortunately, nobody was hurt and he was able to somehow get it retrieved this morning. I guess they had to go over 100' from the front of the ATV to find 10" of ice.

      Seeing a lot of greenheads and swans around the metro.  It seems every bit of open water is packed.  I took advantage of some opportunities to film some trumpeters and put a little holiday cheer to it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQu99MI1Y6Y

      I found a old trolling motor at a garage sale for like $5-10 bucks, cut the head and motor off of it and used the pole and bracket to clamp on the ducer on my last canoe.

      It should be able to I can shoot through my kayak if I wanted. Canoe should be the same. There great units. Good price and a solid fish finder

      I just saw this online.  What would be the best way to mount the transducer?  Could it shoot through the floor of the canoe?   Humminbird® PiranhaMax™ 4 Sonar PT Portable tranducer, case, rechargeable battery and charger Tilt-mount base makes the screen easy to view 256-color 4.3" 480 x 272 screen DualBeam explores down to 600 ft. 2,400-watt peak-to-peak power output Featuring a portable transducer, portable case, rechargeable battery and a wall charger, Humminbird's PiranhaMax 4 Sonar with PT delivers a compact package for on-the-go fishing adventures.

      Anybody know anything about this lake? Just north of Ely.

      Welcome Rick! I use a Humminbird piranha max 4 (non DI). I mounted it in a vexilar Genz case and I use the genz soft pack on it to help protect the screen from scratches. I used it all last summer in the kayak and it worked PERFECT. I use the humminbird suction cup mount and it works well. Even used it on a smaller aluminum boat and it never came off even on plane. This setup to me is ideal for anyway wanting a cheaper rig that works very well IMO.

      I want to set up the canoe with a portable transducer so that it can be used in the boundary waters and portaged, etc.  Anyone have ideas on the set-up and what sonar would be a good choice?   I probably don't want too hi-tech so I can conserve battery life.
