Lakemaster and Vista

5 posts in this topic

FYI, for those of you that have been waiting for Lakemaster to address the Windows Vista compatibly issue the upgrade is finally available. I installed it this morning and found a bunch of new lakes in Hi-def, including a few I have enjoyed frequenting!

Airjer,

I installed the update last week on my laptop.

Love the new features. I am interested to see how it works with my Delorme GPS antenna, haven't had time to configure it yet, but I think it is going to be a great tool for when the ice is thick enough to drive on the lake to find that spot on the spot.

A 15" display is a lot better then a 5" on my 337.

Love the arial view feature being able to plot my waypoints on the picture. Just wish they could have been able to integrate the contours into the photos, would have been a no brainer then.

WW

PS all in all a great tool for prescouting a lake before I get there, and loading waypoints on the finder is the easiest thing to do now.

Thanks for the update guys. I've been waiting for this day and almost forgot about it. Just ordered it. Can't wait.

I've been thinking about getting one of those Delorme GPS for the lap top. Let me know how it goes!

    • I'm curious about the GenieJar.  Looks like there is a 30oz and a 17oz version.  I wonder how it works in fairly cold weather.  The nice thing about styrofoam is that it insulates against the entire water mass freezing into a minnow-sicle.  I wonder if they recommend throwing it inside your jacket or something. 
    • Agreed. I am getting nervous about the state of out financial situation now, well, I guess getting MORE nervous. Toward the back end of the contract Parise's deal isn't so bad since it was front loaded, but the term is so long. IMO we cannot afford any more buyouts. Pominville is such a buzzkill. Koivu has really played great the last 1 plus this year. No, he isn't going to win many races for the puck, but as long as he isn't on the top line I am OK with that. Staal is doing a little better than I had hoped I guess. I was hoping just for solid play, but there have been a few games where he and Coyle we so strong on the puck the opposition couldn't get control of it.
    • Hey Star, I wouldn't leave the fan there. It's going to get really HOT and will melt ! Move it to the bottom of the cabinet just left of the gas valve and have it blowing up so it pushes the heat out the vents on the top half of the heater.
    • I agree with the backing for the fly line.  Never had any problems and the stuff seems to get better with age.
    • Best thing I've found is backing for fly line.  It has no memory and virtually no knots.  It's better situated for rattle wheels because of the physical size of the backing but I've not had any problems yet with my Frabil tip-ups.  Deepest water we fish in is only 30' with normal depth of around 12'.  Our local Runnings sells 50 yard segments for like $3 each in any color. 
    • The next year my Mom and Dad cooked the turkey in one of those white roasters and it was awesome.  So I told her that too.  Big time.  It was nice and juicy too.
    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy. 
    • There sure isn't any rhyme or reason to the costs. I think you stand a lot better chance for a good price in the summer though when you can take your house to a job site and they don't have set up and clean up costs involved.
