Lakemaster for the Fingers

Recommended Posts

Good Day, 

 

Lakemaster NE shows they cover the Finger Lakes. Is there big improvement from the stock unit? Using a Helix 9 G3. 

 

Thanks, Dave

Depends on what Finger Lake. Some are better than others, but whatever Lakemaster gives you is better than stock. Make sure you get Version 2 of the map.

Yankee Troller, 

Thanks for the tips, I have loaded Lakemaster Plus v2 in my Helix g3. I seem to be having difficulty with the contour depth readings. I only get 10 foot increments instead of lower more 1-2' detail readings. I believe I may not understand or have the base layer setting correct. Would you be willing to share some wisdom in this area? 

 

Appreciate the help. Dave

Did you zoom in? When you plug in a Lakemaster chip you get a new menu. Look in there for a setting that allows you to get down to 1' contours.

The auto chart feature is worth using anywhere you will be fishing a lot and would like a more accurate map.  Many lakes there is no accurate map on the market... obviously Keuka doesn't fit that category.

Thanks for the quick replies. I do not think it is the auto cart, as I am just trying to get a more accurate contour line depth under normal usage. Do I require autochart for one foot readings? 

 

I will take a closer look at the menu's as YT suggests, but I believe I have gone through rather thoroughly. I must be missing something, or I would get 1 foot markings instead of only 10, correct? Maybe it was lack of zoom?
