I believe that it is a good idea to have as much information as possible on hand, particularly when you are in unfamiliar waters.

A map recon can only do so much.

I use my GPS maps on my PC, and find waypoints that I send to my GPS, before I get to the new waters I plan to explore.

One of the maps I use has all of the bottom contours, but my GPS software does not.  It would save time if it did.

General Discussion / Navionics Plus chip

I have been kicking around the idea of picking up a Navionics Plus chip to use in my boats. I like the versatility of using in both fresh & salt.  Of course, I'm not quite as concerned about bottom structure as a conventional angler would be, but I can see times where is would be handy.  The main objective would be improving the charting on my Lowrance units (Elite 7 HDI & Elite 5 DSI). I also will be using at least the freshwater boat for some conventional fishing on occasion.

Any thoughts, feedback etc?
Sign me up.
I'm expecting a fun time as always happens on this outing.

Wow! That is great.

Congratulations on another great fisherman in the family!

The river is officially Blown at Columbus and is not much better at Bastrop.  Howells will not rent boats if the river stage is higher than 15.5' and it is currently over 18'.  I really think it fishes better below 12'.  I don't a good make-up date either.  Maybe we could fit something in the fall?
