Tetonka on the Lakemaster Chip

Recommended Posts

Can'tFishEnuf

The 07 chip looks like it has 2 maps layered on top of each other. One is a 3 foot contour and the other a 5 foot, I think. Does anyone know which one is correct? It's really goofy looking and hard to read. I don't know much about this lake and I'm thinking about giving it a try this spring. I guess I'll find out soon enough out on the water. Just wondering if anyone else noticed this.

Were you zoomed in. If not it will be cluttered.

Yea, I had it zoomed in. It's very wierd looking. You can see a number of 3 foot lines and then a 5 foot line will come shooting across. Some of the 5 foot lines don't make sense with the 3 foot. For example, it has 12, 15, 18 feet then a couple 30 and 35 lines overlay it. This is the only lake that I have noticed this on, so I think it may just be Tetonka. confused.gif

Maybe you have defective chip? Try to find someone you can compare apples to apples with. Also what unit is it in? Does it need a firmware update? Just thoughts to try.

I have the H2O. I saw a post about there being an update, but I don't have a card reader to copy the files to. I see I can call Lowrance and they will send one. The map and unit look like they are operating fine. It just looks like two maps being overlayed. I am going to contact Lakemaster and see if this is a defect or what. Thanks guys!

I know that my chip works just fine on TeTonka. As Otter stated it is a 5' map. The direction I would go is to Lakemaster as you will get to the bottom of it there. I would guess the chip is the problem if its only on 1 lake map.

I would follow Harvey lees lead. Lowrance should be able to solve your problems.

I have the same problem with the 07 chip. My old chip was fine with the 5 ft contours. Looks like they copied a their new 3ft contour map over the old DNR style map. Makes it kinda difficult to read... The old 5 ft contour map had poor-average accuracy. Im not sure how accurate the 3 ft map is.

I sent Lakemaster an email just this morning and I already got a response. Pretty good for a Saturday.

"This has been brought to our attention. Lowrance

is the product manufacturer. We provide them with the

lake information. The 5-foot contour map should have

been removed, but was not. You should use the 3-foot

contours."

I would make sure they know there is still something not right. You shouldn't have to deal with that.

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.

      Hey there DUCKHTR . No need for a guide to hunt divers on Leech or Big Winnie . Your spots that you hunted early season on Leech will also be good spots for later season . I don't duck hunt anymore , but I used to hunt a lot on Winnie , mostly all my hunting there was on the north end Third River Flowage . Travel north from Deer River up Hwy 46 to the sign that directs you to turn left , then travel west on that gravel road for about 10-12 miles to the 3rd river boat landing . You should have no problem launching your boat there . From the landing outward is a lot of tall reeds on both sides of you  , this flowage widens out as you go farther out ,and depending on your wind direction on the day of your hunt , you can just pick and choose a spot  , all the way out , and down to Mallard Point where it really opens up to big water on Winnie . You will need to buy up 3-4 dozen Bluebill decoys , and also use your Mallard decoys you must already have . We used to have great shoots in that area of the lake . In the dark of the morning when your heading out you may have other hunters shine a flashlight your way , they are just letting you know that they are already set up in that spot , don't worry , there is plenty of room for many different hunting groups in the flowage . Once you get a few hunts below your belt , you will then have a better understanding of some of your favorite spots to set up ..  I had one particular spot we used to call the "Meat Market" because we used to kill so many ducks there in that spot . Just put out your decoys in the spot you choose , and then  pull your boat into the reeds parallel to the water , wait for legal shooting hrs , and have at it . From my recollection the Bills would start to trickle down from the north around the 20th or so of Oct .. I I hope this helps you out somewhat .

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      Tom, good thoughts now we need good weather!

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.
