I got a Simrad Nss7. Simrad is owned by Lowrance.  I liked the Lowrance line because you could use other vendors mapping SD cards. Garmin had you restricted to their maps only. they may have changed. I think Simrad was originally Norwegian company. I got some Louisiana bay system micro SD cards from http://www.aerialcharts.com/  . I got Calcasieu and Forchon area.

Outing Chat / Fly fishing Destin in the fall...
« Last post by GDSutherland on June 09, 2015, 01:12:13 PM »
Looking for some cheap (well, free) advice. Thinking about a family trip to Destin in October, and I simply cannot sit in the sand for several days without going fly fishing. Don't care how much rum I consume.

So here's the question... anyone fish the Florida panhandle in October? Guide recommendations? Redfish or other species? Finn - I think you've fished over there; I'd appreciate any advice.

Thanks guys...

Hey Dan... if you're thinking about electronics, Mike Frankoff and I both outfitted our boats this year with new gear. We both chose the Lowrance HDS7 touch, with the Navionics Platinum Plus mapping chip. Outstanding detail, it is like having google earth on your dashboard. For what we do - navigating backwater marshes - that level of detail is a real plus. When we were down at the Arroyo a few weeks ago they were a huge help. Made my old unit look like an early version of "pong." In addition, the sonar features are pretty amazing, something you might need on the new panga far more than a flats skiff, since you may be doing more structure fishing at the jetties, etc.

Many different systems out there, all of them excellent - it really comes down to a chocolate/ vanilla decision.

Happy to talk more about it - PM me and we'll can discuss if you like.

Congrats again... GDS

Great looking boat.
Use the build time to get all the accessories.

Remember a new boat does best with new fly rods & reels.

Rob,

Thanks for your feedback. Hearing from people like yourself is exactly what we need. Most of us have been on here for years and take things for granted. We really need a newcomer's perspective as to how to make this more welcoming as we add more fly fishing fanatics.
