I just purchased the Navionics this week for my iPhone and so far it looks great. I haven't used it on the water yet but I've scrolled around and looked at various lakes and the detail is good. For the price of a case of beer its worth it.

Navionics ($10 or $20) + DNR Lakefinder (free).

Navionics for contours, Lakefinder for info.

The DNR Lakefinder app helps you find new lakes by picking a section on a map or searching by name.

It does not give a contour map, that is what navionics is for. It will give you an overall map of how to get there, info on the landing, and the DNR survey information.

Tune In Radio App has worldwide radio stations including NOAA weather stations for weather warnings and reports. I also like the radar maps on AccWeather App and hourly forcasts, wind etc...

Lake winni and big cutfoot is what i would be using this for any other suggestions ?

As has already been mentioned, there aren't really other apps besides navionics and the lakefinder app that show depth contours of inland lakes for android phones. And, the lakefinder app just has the DNR maps in it, nothing worth writing home about. Very little detail there.

I suggest that you download the navionics app. Look at the lakes you're interested in on your phone. If you don't like it, return it within 24 hours and you're out nothing.

Turning on the community layer shows all the little spots that others place on there not knowing they are sharing with the world. Its kinda funny. I found "Dave's ice house", "slob crappies" and "eelpout mafia" while perusing around various lakes.

I put a few on there just to mess with people and even moved a couple of theirs around. :-)

If you want to mark something on Navionics use FAVORITES. That way others dont see it.

DNR lakefinder now has lake depth contours on the overlay. I also have the droid razor, and downloaded this app, and it is very nice having the lake contours over the arial photo, plus its free.

Its free and in general nice to have, but not real accurate. I find just having access to lake information, surveys to be very useful though.

So you're the one!
I must confess. I am that guy. The ones I moved were ones that were marking my "honey holes". I realize other people knew about it, but wanted to keep them from being broadcast to everyone.

I dont think people realize that they are showing that to everyone.

Instead, just turn on the google, or Bing map overlay under settings in the Navionics app. The DNR contours are horrible.

    • First snapper yesterday. It was looking for Leech!     Was that Leech?
    • Baked taters  grilled pork chops and Califlower  . Had better Califlower though. 
    • Sunset last night on Burntside lake.    
    • Just don’t know where else to put this ray of hope.
    • We get eggs from locals who have chickens.  The difference in shelf life between washed and unwashed eggs was weird the first time I heard it.  Months for unwashed; maybe a month for washed.   Farm fresh is a fair amount different than from the grocery store.  Bigger yolks and thinner shells are two of the more noticeable differences.  I had my first red yolk eggs a few weeks ago.  Kinda freaked me out but it’s no big deal really.
    • Nature is pretty rad.    I think it's cool the eggs can just sit there for some time.  Especially because it can get quite cold.   There are sometimes a dud or two and I first thought it might be because they froze before mom incubated them but they always kick off.  When I have done post mortem examinations of the duds they always have almost completely developed ducklings inside.  I've never found one that was just some yolk.
    • No mosquitos yet, plenty of flies the last couple of days and here is my first spider outside of the house!    
    • I’ve never studied it but I’m pretty sure she has to be full time incubating before they all start.
    • I have a bunch of people telling me to install a camera in the box and set up a webcast.  I know my parents would love it.  Especially my dad, who built the house.     If I ever get around to it, I'll post a link.
    • I wish I would have caught them taking the leap and deciding which mom to follow.  I saw them that morning and it looked like about 2/3 went with one and 1/3 the other.  Definitely some gansers in the mix too.     I've caught the leap once out of 5 years.  I track it pretty close and can predict within about 5 days window of when I need to watch in the morning for mama duck to fly down and wait.  I had it nailed last year but real life prevented me from seeing it happen.   It's interesting to me that the duck lays an egg or two a day and they pile up over the course of a week/week and a half.  But they all hatch on the same day.  Crazy.  It must have something to do with development kicking off when mama duck starts sitting on them full time.  It's cool that those first layed eggs just sit there in a state of suspended animation waiting for mom to start full time sitting on them.
