  8. You can't win a big buck contest by entering a bull elk...the rules are the rules like um or not
  9. Wow, it's fishing ...for some it's a business for others it's a passion and fun but this isn't the deadliest catch! I enjoy every part of the season, spring brown fishing is great, then steelhead and lakers till the kings go on the bite We need to stand together as a group not quibble over minusha. It's a fishing derby that costs $30 to enter,if you don't like the rules keep your cash in your pocket and don't enter. It's the thrill of the chase more so than winning any ways Good luck and have fun !
  10. Thanks and yes it's been a long winters wait! Here is a picture of her semi rigged from last fall
  11. I do think it is a good one for Great Lakes fishing,I only have one day behind it but am happy with features and function. Garmin customer service is also some thing that impressed me. That's as much as I can say to this point ...so far so good and I'm quiet pleased with my chose of the 50 DV Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Garmin delivered as promised 10 ' extension arrived Friday . 1st impressions go this unit are very good, nice selection of screens, down vue looks great reads at full throttle pre loaded map is good also
  13. Headed out of I bay with the Penn Yan I bought end of last season after much $ and rigging got to fish off her for the 1st time. Every thing worked great and went 5 for 10 fishing ship builders to Webster Pier. Feels good to be fishing the Big O again! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. I was down there this morning still logs and debris in all but one launch Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. My Garmin 50 DV arrived today so I went right to hooking it up. I was less than pleased to find the transducer only has a 20' cable. I checked around for an extension and they are $90 for 10' extension cable and no one had one in stock I was ready to pack it up and return it but I called Garmin and spoke to customer service ( got right thru no waiting on hold) I told them of my displeasure and They are sending me out the extension free of charge! This was one of the reasons I chose Garmin 1st rate customer service! I'll report back after I use it a bit. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  16. Great day of fishing for sure,thanks for the reports!
  17. The Garmin echoMAP 50dv has a 5-inch display, which provides VGA-quality imaging. Built into the echoMAP 50dv is Garmin’s trademarked High-Definition Identification target tracking technology. Better known as HD-ID, it provides a super clear image of the area under the boat. Garmin echoMap 50dv combines HD-ID with the DownVü scanning sonar, which provides a virtually photographic view of structure in the water. The built-in GPS receiver on the Garmin echoMAP 50dv has a speed of 10 Hz which allows it to update position 10 times a second. The higher update frequency results in more fluid boat movement display. Also included is sonar-recording capability for coordinating the timing of the sonar return with your boat’s position. You can playback your sonar recording on a PC with HomePort software or send it wirelessly to an Apple device equipped with BlueChart Mobile software. The Garmin echoMAP 50dv comes pre-loaded LakeVu HD map package, which provides details of 17,000-plus US lakes; or the BlueChart g2 coastal map package. The 50dv is capable of storing up to 5,000 waypoints and 100 routes. It also has a track log capacity of 50,000 points, with 50 saved tracks. The unit is equipped with two microSD cards for expanding the built-in flash memory and additional cartography. Garmin echoMAP 50dv comes with the transducer, power and data cable, tilt and swivel mount, flush mount, protective cover, and a user manual
  18. I am in the same situation, Furuno 1670 or 1870 but after transducer and mappping software cost climbed Deciding factor was 1670 and 1870 are horizontal displays and narrow This week ended up ordering the Garmin echomap 50DV it's a 5" screen but a verticle 5"
  19. Looking for a combo unit for my 22' PennYan any one have any experience with the Furuno 1870f unit? Any other suggestions for a good user friendly unit?
