Humminbird 788 ci HD

Recommended Posts

Dad and I went to pick up an order at Cabelas-Hoffman Estates, and decided to check out the locators and the bargin cave. Checking out the locators, we talked with a couple of salesman about a couple of units. We got looking at the 788ciHD. After drooling over it for a few minutes, we found out that the unit was on sale for $479.00, reg $649.00. The tag was on a different model. Decided to think about it for a while and wandered into the bargin cave and found a Lakemaster chip V1, $63, reg $120. I went back and talked with the sales guys again and asked them what they thought about the chip and was it worth geting the newer version or not. I found out that it the updated versions usually don't have updated information unless it is an added lake. After gift cards and redeeming my Cabelas points - we got us a new toy! WOO HOOO!!! :yahoo:

If anyone is wondering, there was 4 left as of 11 this morning.

Is it spring yet?? I want to go fishin' :crazy:

I'm new to the great lake fishing game, I'm in the process of setting up a lund 21' with a couple of down riggers. Just wondering what everyone recommends for a fish locator. What are the features I should be looking for while fishing on lake Superior? What are the advantages of Lowrance Vs. Hummingbird, and what is the best lake chip for Lake Superior?

It depends on your budjet, some of them are better then others at different price points. Although the price mentioned above is a steal on the best unit you can buy for $600 or less.
