Lowrance h20

Recommended Posts

I don't think newer chips are for sale anymore? You would have to buy a "newer" chip secondhand. Unless I missed something I didn't think Lakemaster was making any chips for the Lowrance units.

Has something happened to change the underwater terrain?

You may be better off holding off on buying any card for that rig. Lowrance does not support it any more and the units of that era have been dying. Dozens of threads on FM where people have asked about fixing them. They just plain quit working.

Call around to some of your local sporting goods stores, I found one at L&M Fleet a year or so ago for my H2O...and some of the smaller outlets still have a small supply of them...I think 7.1 was the last version made for the H2O. If not you can get a Garmin e-trex 20 for around $150 and the smaller card that works in the newer units is very similar to the Lakemaster in fact some think it is exact...plus you get a bigger area and includes LOW which Lakemaster made you purchase a separate chip for LOW.

Lowrance didn't quit Lakemaster. It is the other way around. There is nothing wrong with the Bird. It's another Ford v. Chevy thing but I like Lowrance. For northern Minnesota, Navionics is far better with more detail and more lakes. I bought the latest Navionics chip last year for my HDS and it works in my H2O.

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
