I like it, I went from a hand held Garmin to this and its night and day. I haven't used the SV much but when I have it on it seems to pick up fish that move to the side when I troll over them. Like any thing else I need to learn how to read the structure better. The other thing I noticed is when I went to two maps I thought I would see better definition but I really don't. But Garmins swears it will use both maps at the same time.

note the unit doesn't have enough mem in it to store the new map so you have to have the chip in the unit.


hope that helps

it will keep the original default map when you display software but the new map should show up right after. if it doesn't than its not reading the new map.

P.S. I have two maps on my echomap 73sv and they both show up when I display the software

I think it will take someone with admin access to the web site to be able to update the scores.

Being a Mille lacs fisherman for the last 27 years I agree with all sides of this conversation. Large populations of perch can dominate the walleyes key forage, without mentioning the fly hatches throughout the season. If there really is an abundance of large perch or a large population of perch on the lake I would like to look into maybe pursuing that in attempt to see what year classes are most abundant.

Walleye fishing is tough. It always has been. Always will be. pressure pressure pressure.

How has the perch bite been this year? Any size ? Large populations of similar sizes?

Thanks.


Just got back Sat. from 8 days on Winnie, you can catch all the perch you want but you will have trouble finding any size to eat.
Note: Winnie was classified as infected waters (Zebra Mussels)
now they can't take and transport minnows from the lake. that just added more forage for the Walleye to eat.

as stated earlier, we also had to change tactics to catch enough walleye for a fish fry. deeper water or after dark. but you can catch walleyes, it just takes a little more work and time.

FYI: They are not really R&R Marine anymore. They were bought out by Rapid Sports many years ago. I bought my Lund from Rapid Sports when they only had the store in Coon Rapids. I repowered my boat this spring and ask them for a quote: they were $2000-$3000 higher on a Merc. and even more for an ETec. Didn't seem to want to even bother with only an engine quote.

When it was R&R I would buy parts there, the two brothers were great to work with and always helpful and reasonably priced.

I haven't chimed in on this debate for awhile now, but I think IronD has a good point about the slots and how they should be varied. Case and point: Winnie the last two years has been awful. They've had a slot now for about nine years and its now only big fish being caught and it is very hard to find any fish under 18 in. with any consistency. The problem doesn't seem to be the perch pop. as they are in there in great numbers.

Questions
1) Are the smaller fish only feeding on the perch and not the big ones? (This doesn't seem likely)
2) Or are there a vast majority of big fish in the system now?

I don't know what the answers are but it seems slots are a big factor in these lakes.

P.S. don't get me wrong, netting during spawn isn't great either but there's something else going on here too.

Just my thoughts.

Are you getting good numbers of fish?


On Winnie, No one here one there of the big fish. but you will waste alot of bait on perch and small slimmers(northerns).
pretty sad really.

I also fished opener, saw nothing but big fish caught, non under 17 in the cleaning house. out of 4 boats we had 2 fish between 17-18 thru Mon. had to keep a few fish over 23 for a fish fry, but we did snag 20 or so perch over 10 in. nice weather though.

I hope the lack of fish under 17 isn't a sign of bad things to come.

Tues. we fished another lake in the area and picked up 15 nice eaters to salvage the weekend.
