Any recommendations for the lakemaster software and a handheld G.P.S.?
I bought the Vermillion upgrade Cd-rom, and the Lakemaster basic program. What do I need to do to get this stuff on a handheld?

Does it allow me to mark reefs if I dont download the map? What about contours? The guy at Gander said I could download contours.

Info is appreciated, as I have really no clue when it comes to G.P.S smile.gif

There is an I-Finder Pro that should be out any day if it is not already. This will run the MMC cards that lakemaster comes on for your X-15 etc.

As for the Map 76, it interfaces with the Lakemaster software but I have not been able to download contours etc, only waypoints. If someone knows different please let me know.

Thnaks for the info Scott. I'm new to this GPS stuff and wasn't really familiar with Lowrance handhelds. The iFinder Pro Plus looks to be better priced than comparable Garmin or Magellan products. I'm going to have to give it serious consideration before I make my decision.

Scott is correct,
You can print the Maps out and you can download up to 500 waypoints from the ProMap Series LakeMaster GPS maps to your GPS 76 or vice-versa.

You can also run your GPS unit hooked up to a laptop. Your GPS acts like a receiver only and you have the maps right there with you location and waypoints showing up on your laptop. Pretty slick deal.

Just don't get your laptop wet. There is a possibility a PDA may be compatible with that in the future.

You can get mor einfo or order yours here:

    • It is summer bacon season, plus they have gotten trendy on their own.  
    • Fletcher must really like these guys that are small and quick.  I don't understand why they are trying so hard to keep the team intact.  They haven't made it past the 2nd round for the 5-6 years.  We've had this discussion before, but at what point do you say this just isn't working as is?   They have to move good players to get good players.  
    • I look at it like cast iron....numerous cookings give 'em a perfect seasoning. Gotta leave some residue on IMO.
    • No butcher buddy? They can order one for ya....be advised they have taken a huge leap in prices. Ask a butcher about that. Mine (who's also a good friend) said it's the highest he's ever seen 'em at right now.
    • jhust find a locker plant that smokes their own bellies and buy one from them.
    • I have seen it in Costco quite often.  Didn't look last time.    Or call around, often the meat markets will special order if desired.   Seems it was in the 3 buck a pound area if I remember right.     I don't know how far from a Costco you are, but they are a good place to buy meat.   Sams Club might work also. 
    • Pretty hard to tell. Is this on a TWSP, County or State road? You will need to get a permit from them and build it to their standards if approved. Will you need a culvert? Probably will unless you locate it at a highpoint. Will you have to remove any trees? How much fill is needed? is the ditch deep or shallow? How long do you want it? Hopefully you are not impacting any wetlands... It use to be simple, but now it is much more complicated. Could get spendy...
    • Since my smoker is new for now I throw them in the big wash sinks in the basement with some Dawn and hot water to soak. Then rinse them with more hot water. I'm sure in time once they get more "purplefloyd seasoned". I'll rub them a bit with a grill brush and hit them with a garden hose! 
    • Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Here in Minnesota, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s and the Walleyes keep rollin’ in! Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches and crank-baits right along the weed line. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 and 26 feet. Jigging has been tough this week with the strong winds, but the Mayflies have finally tapered off!!
       
      Up on the Canadian side, bottom bouncing has been filling the live wells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have seen nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action can currently be had in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing is still sporadic with high 40” class fish being caught from shallow bottom bays or just outside of them. 

      Fish of the Week:
      49" and 46" Muskie
      40" Pike
      At least 10 Walleye over 25" 

      We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge
    • Anyone know where I can find it?  Checked a couple grocery stores and even a butcher and nobody has it?  Also what's a decent price if I do find any?
