In Topic: Out for some splake

23 Splake is a great day any way you cut it.  I've never targeted or caught one before.Is there any size to them?

Bill good luck with your knee surgery.  My mother in-law had both replaced and now she's walking like a champ.  My father is scheduled for April.

In Topic: Garmin purchase of Navionics: good or bad

15 December 2017 - 12:17 AM

Not sure what the app on my phone is now but last I looked (2-3 years ago) it was roughly $20 for a year of Navionics.  IMO its way cheaper in the long run and much more convenient vs dragging my GPS with me with 2 AA batteries.

I think with the PLUS sized phones 7+ 8+ 10X Samsung 8, etc, it has a much bigger screen and much more clarity with colour vs my antiquated handheld GPS unit.  Rain damage and cost of the phone ($600-$1000) itself would be the only drawback vs a $300-$400 handheld unit which is much more waterproof and durable especially when ice fishing.

My H20 unit has been bullet proof but its super slow when zooming in and out and with my eyesight going south the smartphone is a better option for me.  Just need to be extra careful.

In Topic: First steps on ice this year

Hi Alex good to hear from you and glad to hear you've got some decent ice.  I'm sure with this cold weather it's even built up some more.

Thanks for the post buddy.  You'll get em next time.  I've never caught a brookie through the ice may I ask how many inches they typically get on the water you're fishing?

Shallow, Deep, Bait?  I'd like to catch one through the ice to cross it off my bucket list.
