You'll have to get the LOW lakemaster chip. LOW is not on the Minnesota chip. It is a chip in its own. I believe it has 1 foot contours which is nice.

I use both LakeMaster and Nav chips. They both have some really good things about them.

But for you, I would give a STRONG vote to LakeMaster for a couple of reasons.

1. Nav chip will only zoom in to 1/8 of a mile on a H2Oc, but the LakeMaster chip will zoom in to something like .02 or .03 of a mile. The closer zoom can be very nice at times.

2. I have a Nav chip for LOTW (actually the Nav North chip, it has a lot of other lakes on it too). It is sadly innacurrate for a couple spots I fish on LOTW, in fact it's missing a large reef in the Arneson's area. I was in 15 fow over rocks and the Nav chip showed 35 feet all over that area. Very frustrating. It was much better for some of the other areas I fished on LOTW so it's not all bad, but in that area it was terrible.

If you're interested, I can get you the H20C and whichever map chip you want ....

    • 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.

    • Bonus points!  Well done Andy.  
    • Now I figured out how to add pictures. Time to submit for a score. 
    • I think they got greedy and it backfired. Lots of ads everywhere, requiring subscriptions for some forums. They split the boards up into two different websites (fishing MN and HSO), the boards went down for a while, and most the traffic got fed up it all and just moved on. I used to check this place daily, now maaaaybe once a week.
    • That would be my guess as well... If you run it "as is" you are going to wreck the motor due to the lean condition.
    • Man, this place used to be hopping with all kinds of posts and some great info being shared.  What happened?  This place is almost as dead as Aaron Hernandez.
    • How about the ones sold at fleet farm.  Full jacket military stuff probably not optimum for defense..so the normal stuff.
