A friend and I have decided to start to learn to fish the "Bay" and "Bago" this year. So to help, we have already secured two guided trips. Also have attended a number of seminars as well. At the seminars, I remember some power points that showed bottom structure (we are mostly interested in Jigging and casting). The detail shown was great. So yesterday I hooked up my Lawarance 5300 GPS with my Wisconsin Lakemaster chip (approx 9 years old). Looking at various areas of the lower Bay I was dissapointed in the view. Zoomed in and out and the detail was VERY poor,to what I remember seeing presented. The structure lines were white and very hard to view; they changed to black after water depths were about 20 feet I think. Lines were in 3 or 4 foot spacings. Do I need a "newer chip"? Different brand"
I also purchased a "Hot Map" of the lower bay. That has minimal detail as well. Is there a better choice. I do like to have a paper map as well to be able to see the big picture...not easy to do on the small screen.
Looking for help from the Lake Linkers, as the nearest Gander is 60 miles and farther for a Cabelas. Thanks Harold
