I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines. I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart. If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think. 8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping. Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it. You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it.
I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish. Worth every penny.
Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in.
Until fall turkeys!
I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
Nada for me today. Had some hens come in to give my decoy some company today, but no toms. Sorry I wasn't able to help out on the scoresheet this year. As always, learned some stuff that will make me better next year.
We caught plenty of bass this weekend. However most were small 12-13". Deep fish were less than eager to bite. Still seen a couple guarding nests yet.
Small plastics fished slowly was by far the best tactic.
Only found a couple decent fish, biggest being 19.25".
