  9. I just bought a new Icom m412 radio and a shakespere 5225xt antenna. My problem is,I'm not getting the reading on the radio when I have one on my Humminbird 788ci. I called Humminbird checked to make sure it was compatible to the radio, it was so I ordered the linking cable. Parts arrived today, no wiring inst. Called again and was told what the 4 wires were,1 +,1 nmea out,1 grnd & 1nmea in. They said do not hook-up the+? Set the 788 to nmea on, no time, no location on the radio, any suggestions? Rudey

  12. Looking for some info on the Mi. side of Lake Erie. Planning a trip to that area around second or 3rd week of May. Dates are flexible, since my fishing partner and I are retired. We want to go during the week in order to avoid the weekend crowds. We really need some info on a good place to stay. Some place that is clean & close to restaurants, and is safe & secure for the boat & equipment. Possibly just a short drive to the boat ramp. I have the Hot Spots map & the Lakemaster chip in my Humminbird, but would appreciate any general fishing info. We fish Lake Michigan regularly for salmon and perch. What type of gear do you recommend bringing? What is the area marked Sub Net Stakes? Can you motor over it? Any and all info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks all. Rudey
  13. I have them and also love them, it was suggested to me to use backer plates on the under side of my Lund for extra strength, figured wouldn't hurt. Rudey

  19. Just wondering what everyone is thinking? Looks like we may be getting a few nice days in the next week or so. I thought maybe with the warmer winter and a almost ice free lake this year we might get a early start. I know I"m ready to start fishing,just waiting for the boat to get out of the shop. Thanks to ethanol and the previous owner not using any treatment in the fuel. But should be done soon. (I hope) Rudey

  22. Looking at getting a Lakemaster V2 card of Michigan that includes Lake Michigan. I know we don't have much structure on the south end of the lake but I figured any help could'nt hurt. I have a 788ci. Just wondering is there a better SD card available?
