  1. I understand how some people are just gonna stay die hards with there Lowrance electronics and thats fine. I have been very gong ho about my Lowrance electronics over the years and thought I would never switch. But I'm also a realist and when I see a new product that I think will put more fish in my boat. Well its kinda a no-brainer for me. To me, if I have a product that will let me fish more effiecntly, keep me on the fish longer, and give me a chance to concentrate on presentation more than operating the boat, hell sounds good to me!! The boat basicly runs itself. Like I said Im impressed so far. I mainly fish for walleyes in northern mn and central mn and know this combo will definately put more fish in my boat! I believe alot of Lowrance walleye guys will be jumping ship this year as well. If they havent done so already. I bought a brand new Lund this year and my boat dealer told my that they have been rigging out the new boats coming in with Humminbird/i-pilot link minn kota combo at least 4/1 over Lowrance! To me if your not keeping up with the times ur falling behind. my 2 cents
  2. I too have ran Lowrances for 10 years, and switched to a Humminbird 1158DI this year along with a Minn Kota Terrova 80 i-pilot link. I'm still learning how to use it well but I spent the last 5 days on the Rainy River using it and I'm overly impressed. Everything worked flawlessly between the graph and motor. And I have noticed several differences between the brands and my opinion is that I have made the best technology decsion by far going with Humminbird. Between Minn Kota, Humminbird, and Lakemaster the have the market cornered in all 3 fields! Idk what kinda plans Lowrance has coming in the future but as of right now, I believe they are in trouble if they can't come up with something similar soon.
  3. I have a 9" Jiffy,so I guess I get the best of both worlds!
  4. Late October on the Rainy River, it don't get no better than that!
  5. A year ago this last winter I was ice fishing on a northern Minnesota lake. There was about 9 inches of ice at th time. When I showed up to the landing the lot was completely full and no where to park. I had a snowmobile and trailer behind my pickup to get to the hot spot across the lake. The previous two nights I had caught 4 walleyes over 6 lbs, so I was going out. I figured heck, I've drove out on 10 inches, I'll just pull on to the ice a little. I pull about 100-150 feet from the access and unload everything and go fishing. I quit fishing about 8 o'clock, got a few walleyes, but no hogs. So I am cruising up to the pickup with snowmobile, and I can only see about half of my rims of my pickup. I get to the pickup and it is sitting in about 10 inches of water. So I back it up and get back on to good ice with no water, in front of the landing. I load up my sled and all my gear as fast as I can. Meanwhile the water that had been sitting 100 to 150 feet away had moved in on me again. I suppose the ice was sagging so much from the pickup and trailer. I hop in my pickup and start to pull away and BANG!!!!!!! The back end dropped through the ice and trailer was still on the ice!!! There were a couple of guys coming off the lake and they gave me a pull out. They couldn't stop laughing, and neither could I. I never thought two guys could get that drunk, they were both hammered....... All in all, it could always have been worse. Chalk that I up to another lesson learned.
  6. G Loomis IMX 6' foot light action, topped off with a Pflueger reel. It don't get no better that that!!!
