Thanks Jasper. Your avatar boat pic looks great.
Since that update I bought the LakeMaster AutoChart Pro program. Several of my local lakes are not available on Navionics, LakeMaster, or Hot Spots maps. So I figured I would make my own map for each lake. Got out last weekend to give it a whirl. Awesome!!!
I found all sorts of stuff to check out on future trips. I spent 2 hours going 4mph back and forth over one section of the lake I fish the most, and the surrounding areas. Took me a bit to learn how to make a map, just had to follow the directions. lol
Now I have a map with all contour lines, holes, flats, bottom hardness, etc. While playing back my sonar recording I also discovered a ton of cover I have never fished before. Once I figure out how to mark spots on the sonar recording and merge my old waypoints onto the new map I'll be fishing those this year.
I may have an old boat, but don't let looks deceive you. I have more money in my reels than in my boat. More in my rods than in the boat, and several time more in electronics than I do in the boat.
The boat and its remodel was the cheap part.
The best part, the expensive stuff will transfer to the new boat without trouble.
