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 ....

    • Not necessarily. Depends on circumstances. That one most definitely would be, though. No use debating, though.      You guys would make me walk out first, wouldn't ya?      O this stupid merge junk....$#@! son of a 
    • Maybe she needs to start a foundation..
    • mysnopro all of us that Ice fish feel very badly that this person died and know that we could be next since ice is never safe. I guess we just try and find away to move on and get through these times and some humor is a good way to heal. Not really making fun of someone we don't even really know. Just trying to get passed the hurt.     Jim, I have a lot of relatives that are Native and they are going to bust a gut laughing when I post this on FB to them knowing I ice fish so much.
    • Well, since the real cold is starting and trapping takes a lot of time and effort maybe you could just hold off until next year. Do some more research on the species you want to trap,  the market for their hides and consider the work involved in doing a perfect job of skinning and stretching skins. Then too,   in today's world a guy has to be extremely careful about placing traps where someones cat or dog ends up in the trap. Seeing a nice Brittany crushed and frozen in one of your traps will probably change your mind about the like of a trapper. Many outdoorsmen do some trapping when they are younger and most of them find other pursuits soon enough.  Of course there ARE serious trappers who work at it hard every season. Some thoughts.
    • Not to get technical, but after 1 hr lost person water emergencies are considered recoveries and not rescues...    
    • They say you can't fix stupid, but technically speaking, that is not always correct.
    • So tell me,  did the gather any significant intelligence from her account?  Or was it the same rambling scrambled nonsense she has been babbling at her last several public appearances. Got a quick note from a guy a week or so back who was in the audience at some function where she was speaking and he said "nobody in here can figure out what she's talking about and and the subject seems to change every few minutes. It's a hoot!"
    • nope but very interesting to say the least
    • Have you ever seen this? What do you think?    
    • 4chan did it. Well, not really hacked. The security question for her email was "what elementary school did you attend", which anyone could google because she is famous. So someone just used password recovery and took her account.   The DNC hacking was coordinated phishing, still a simple attack, but not quite as easy to pull off by just any old soul.
