320x240 vs 480x480 color

Question

zachp

Is there much difference as far as screen definition goes for the 320x240 versus the 480x480 in the color depth finders? I have a LMS-334 and am considering getting another depth finder for the bow but would like to get something a bit cheaper and still stay in color.

Screen definition depends on pixels per square inch. If the 320x240 and the 480x480 have the same screen size, then the definition will be better on the 480x480.

If the pixels are the same size the screen will be rectangular with 320x240 and square with 480x480. Example, 2.4"x3.2" vs 4.8"x4.8".

if you fish alot and will be using the locator alot then i would go with the more pixel unit. You will be really glad you it, it give you a more defind look and will really bring out the detail alot better. my .02

As others posted, the higher the pixels the better the resolution (definition). Go with the highest pixel count in color you can afford.

I jumped from a 320 to a 640 last year for my bow unit. Wow. I just equaled it with my console unit because of how impressed I am with the 640 vertical pixels.

Reeds have a sale and closeout on the 334. At the Sportsman show now going on in MPLS, they were $450 out the door, that included sales tax. I picked one up and I'm sure they would still honor that if you called them by Monday. It seem like a great unit for that money, now have to find the time to learn how to use it.

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!

      Nice fish!

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.
