LakeMaster Maps

9 posts in this topic

Is there a list anywhere of which lakes are included in the Minnesota 101 Series of LakeMaster maps? And are these maps in the same detail as the Mille Lacs map?

I was comparing the sample of the Gull map you sent me to the Sybil Smith map of Gull. Smith's map looks like it has a little more detail. Or am I mistaken there? I don't have any open water experience on Gull, so I can't say which one looks to be more accurate.

Do the LakeMaster maps have the same capabilities as the ReelBottom map of Mille Lacs as far as being able to pull up GPS coordinates?

One more question for you. If I understood what they're saying on their HSOforum correctly, any updates they make in the future are available free of charge. Does this mean if I buy the software, I will continue to be able to receive free upgrades for as long as I own the software? 5, 10, 15+ years down the line?

i would e-mail them with that question. When they made the mille lacs map it didnt have most of the south end on it. So the update was free. They offer great support.What lakes on the list interest you the most?

I was writing down all the lakes on the list that I plan on fishing on a somewhat regular basis, and there's 34 of them. Pretty much all the lakes from Crow Wing County. I'm a big musky fisherman too, so all the musky lakes on the list are of interest to me as well.

Thanks D-Man. That was just the information I was looking for. Do you think that in time, that they will come out with maps for most major lakes in the same kind of detail as the Mille Lacs and Leech maps?

    •   Thats the thing, I can't find really any good pictures of one. I was given this auger a few days ago buy a guy who didn't use or want it.  He only used it once when he forgot his power auger. There is a string with a price tag on it for $89. It was sitting in his machine shed in a corner collecting dust.   I cleaned up the auger and touched it up. There was a slight ding in the auger flighting up a turn or two from the bottom. That I fixed. However,  the mounting head for the blades didn't have any of the original powder paint damaged, none had flaked off, and there was no rust spots. The blades where rusted up but not damaged. I assume if they were bent the powder paint would have expanded & flaked off. The two blade angles seem to look like they are how they should be. So I'm really kinda leaning that the blade mounts might not be bent with the way it looks.    If I look at the shaver blades from the top or bottom they look like a normal shaver blade. However, when looked at from the side they seem to have a very slight curve that matches the blade mount. Did jiffy have a design like this different from the others? So I'm confused.......what would be the odds of both the blade mount sides being bent to what looks like exact angles.......if they were bent what is the odds of both blades seeming to conform to the bends without cracking or breaking........I measured from one outside blade edge to the other and got 8in......but I know 8in augers can go from a range of 7.5in-8.5in depending on brand and other things......If the blade mount ads were bent I would think some powder paint would have flaked off.......I'll do the ice bucket trick.....was hoping someone had one or could chime in. It looks a little like a design between a flat shaver and a curved blade if it's not bent......I do really like the design if that is what it is meant to be. I just really don't know if they are bent or not bent. Confusing..... 
    • I wax every exposed part of the string. 
    • BD!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i wasnt good enough for a lakeside lot!!!!!!!!!!!
    •   Is that you, or the back of BD then?
    • well, that picture he posted?????????? that was my boat and i was part owner of that dock if that tells ya anything!!!!!!!!! yea he's been there!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    •   Ok but you told BigDave huh? Maybe he'll give it up?
    • Hi guys,   I am a beginner and just purchased a Matthew Halon bow last year.  However, I haven't waxed the bowstring and figured I should do it before this season starts.   My bowstring doesn't seem to have any colors on it showing where to avoid waxing it.    Can somebody explain or direct me to a video on where to avoid waxing on the bowstring of a Matthew Bow?  I know the part about rubbing the wax into the string good, but I am unsure which part of the bowstring to avoid waxing exactly.    Thank you. 
    • North of the cities.........................south of I Falls!!!!!!!!!!!!! west of st cloud!
    •   Come give me a north-south zone at least!
    • I am just an outsider looking in, so I have an opinion and that is all it is not fact. I have fished Mille Lacs quite a bit over the last 3-4 years.  The fishing has just gotten better. I don't know if it is because the fish really are lacking a food source or if there are just that many fish in the lake. This past Monday we were there to chase smallies. While we did do OK on the smallmouth we did happen to catch 6 walleye up on the rock in 6-12 ft. All looked fat and healthy. Seemed unusually shallow for this time of year. I don't care if this lake stays catch and release only. It is a blast catching 10-15 walleye over 20in in an afternoon. I just hope that "IF" the walleye population is on the decline that politics and special interests, including the tribes, will be able to step back and allow the lake to be managed as necessary to keep this incredible fishery alive. Just my opinion.
