Re: Your old chart card still has value

AMX. That will work and no need for the codes on the card. For your graphs and for fishing around here, both the Navionics+ Regions West or Platinum West will have great coverage for the whole west coast. The main difference (besides cost) is that the Platinum card has satellite overlay. The map det...

Re: Anybody fish Thompson Lake anymore?

I have been to Banks countless times and never even knew there was a lake there on Steamboat. I checked Navionics (not that I didn't believe it was there) and there it is. It's even mapped. Sounds like I need to make a trip in the future. http://www.thebassbite.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Screen-...

Re: Fall Bass fishing - Fake News!

This is my favorite time of year. Throw bigger baits as the fish are feeding up heavily now before winter creeps in. My strategy is to throw 4-6" swimbaits, move fast and hit deep weedlines, mainlake points and underwater points like the one shown here. http://www.thebassbite.com/wp-content/uploads/...

Re: Recommendations GPS/fish finder

As another thing to consider, several fishfinders are now available as bundled products with a Navionics+ card already in there. It is a huge savings compared to buying the card at retail. You will have to ask your dealer if they have the bundles, but these are the units. HUMMINBIRD: Helix 5, 7 LOWR...

Re: Bassin @ potholes

Re: Recommendations GPS/fish finder

Not to hijack the thread, but what advantages do you see in Navionics over the standard Lowrance mapping? Gary #1 would be number of lakes mapped. #2 would be level of detail and #3 is how Navionics maps are continually getting better every day. They process over 2,000 updates each day and I as wel...

Have never had any issues with the Lowrance HDS units. Started at Gen 1 then upgraded to Gen 2 touch and am now running HDS Carbons. Solid and withstand the abuses of fishing alot. I run it with a Navionics platinum card and can see satellite overlay as well as mapping. http://www.thebassbite.com/wp...

There is also a new fishing range option on the Navionics app with various colors and it is amazing! If you already have the app just update it and the feature is there. http://www.thebassbite.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/Screenshot_20180809-155532_Boating-HD.jpg http://www.thebassbite.com/wp-cont...

What is "deep" to you?

I have been adjusting my colored depth ranges on my Navionics app and started to wonder what deep is to everyone. What do you consider "deep" when bass fishing?

Satellite Overlay and Google Earth

I'm sure most of you use Google Earth to find spots and I definitely do, but I have been doing it with my Lowrance units as well. The Navionics Platinum card has sat overlay and you can view the image as well as contours at the same time. I have found out that adjusting the transparency makes things...

I've been fishing quite a few local lakes lately and mapping for Navionics while I fish. I wanted to let you all know that Clear Lake has now been updated. You can see the before and after shots below for a backwater area that had zero mapping at the time. Here is a little shot of the area I fished ...

Re: Fishing Spots near Spokane?

There are many, many good ones. Just depends if you want smallmouth or largemouth of both. Probably my favorite is Long Lake aka Lake Spokane. It has some giants of both species.

Re: Roosevelt 'eyes

With the water so low, you can adjust the depth on your Navionics app. I've done this at Dworshak last year with the water down 84 feet and it is a great tool to help keep you a little safer on the water and find some fish. Good luck out there. To do it just go to Menu then Map Options then Water Le...
