Custom GPS Minnesota Lake Maps

7 posts in this topic

Anybody given these a shot??? I've used them on a number of different lakes and been very happy with them. I'll admit to being biased, the map service person is a buddy of mine, but I can honestly say with pure objectivity that it's a good product that they're selling that'll cut down on goof off time and increase your amount of fishing time.
If you fish a lake that's not included in other mapping services and you have a gps, give it a shot. For the small fee they charge per lake you can't go wrong.
I'd like to hear your experiences with this software if you've given it a shot.

Minneman,

I bet you got the Big C map, didn't you? I got it from Kirsch a while ago and it's pretty dang good. Get out and give it a try-let me know how you like it.

What a super idea! I have a few of these maps and use them during the soft water season, but I know I will really use them on the ice! Great for any time of the year and easy to use. So many options to use if you choose or you can use it in it's simplest form. It helps me avoid having hundreds of waypoints on my gps at one time. I simply download the ones for a particular lake on a particular day.

When I saw this thread, I couldn't resist adding to it. The beauty of the service is you choose the lake. It isn't restricted to just the high profile lakes across the state as the other products typically are.

Here are just some of the ways you can use the maps:

1) Mark unlimited waypoints anywhere you wish on the map. Upload and download them from and to your GPS.
2) Mark tracks and upload them to the GPS
3) Download tracks and see where you have been fishing. Also, this allows you to save exact trolling patterns. How cool is it to save trolling patterns from your favorite lake and come back a year later, and upload those tracks and follow the same course.
4) Measure distances on the lake.

Good Fishing!

Ahhh yes,
it's great adding to the list of lakes we can now get GPS coordinates associated with the lake map.

This is going to be an awesome tool for finding your spots during ice fishing.

Just pull your lake map up, click on the spots and you have your GPS coordinates. Then your GPS takes you right to your location on the lake.

I'm looking forward to saving a lot of time with these powerful maps.

Pick your favorite lake(s) and get the map(s) for yourself. You'll be glad you did.

    • Use the hallow points or ballistic tips they rip apart
    • I usually get mine from Tim over at Stump Jumper Designs. He does great work and has lots of choices of woods etc... 
    •   Yeah, but you know your Aunt Bev will never make fun and insult you on FaceBook like you will get here! 
    • Smoked 3 slimers last week.  real simple brine, 1 cup pickling salt, 1 cup brown sugar and water to cover.  24 hr soak.  added onions and brown sugar on top. 3.5 hrs at 195.  Used to leave skin on, dealt with the slime.  still tasted great.  Been skin off for a couple batches lately and its the way to go.  no slime to deal with, just sprayed the rack with pam.  hammerhandles be ware!
    • I've only tried them with Northern, but honestly, I'm not sure I could taste the difference if I didn't make them myself.  All psychological, IMO - this will likely start an off-topic discussion BUT I participated in an 8 person taste test between Walleye, Northern and Bass (yes, we cut-up a medium sized bucket-mouth).  I was the only one to name all three fish correctly and it was only due to the fact that my friend who was in-charge of the test accidentally missed a y-bone so I just had to guess in-between walleye and bass and I guessed correctly.  A couple of the guys also had a y-bone and got their guess between 'eye and bass wrong!!!  Flaky white fish is flaky white fish - especially when you bust it all up, mix it with bread crumbs, mayo and whatever else.  Again, just my opinion.
    •   I agree the split did not work out. Also a lot of people are on FB. Heck I finally joined last year. Jury is still out whether I like it or not!!
    •   Just like you being a social media queen, LOL

    • Every one said, with out Double here we may as well leave.   So, Welcome back may be with you here they will come back now! 
    • My buddy Dan and I have been going to the same farm for 3 years now and the turkey hunting is almost unfair. We've never been skunked and the only time we haven't tagged out is the first year.    This year the bowhunting was tough. We were trying to be fancy and get things on film and it hurt us tremendously. So, naturally, we gave up on filming and went back to having fun.    We shot 4 turkeys, a tom and a jake each, all by fanning (reaping). The action was intense and super fun. Additionally, after having a set busted by a wandering daytime coyote, I lip squeaked her into to 20 yards and finished her off with the same treatment, a load of #6 to the face. My jake and the coyote are on cell phone video so I will see about sharing those.   My tom, came on the last day. He ran more than 200 yds just to confront that turkey fan. Due to a depression in the landscape, I had no idea where he would come up. He emerged at 10 FEET! and in a split second I shot him at 8FEET!! Thankfully I had the bead on his head or I would've likely missed. Nothing beats turkey hunting with your best buddy.    And I'm having a taxidermist friend of mine do a euro mount on the coyote skull. Unfortunately the hide was shedding terribly and was matted with mud.
