I had a garmin 276map. It worked for several years, great until it got wet and was unrepairable! I purchased a garmin montana 610. I find it very cumbersome, the screen too small to really use easily and difficult to manipulate etc, It was a $600 gps. Can you suggest a larger unit that would be…

what is your budget and how big of a screen do u want. The best setup would be the Lowrance hds series with a Louisiana card but it comes with a premium price.

You have to have a GPS unit with a SD card slot and purchase the maps chart to get detailed information. I think all brands have units with this option, but the best place to check is with a dealer.

Is there a map that shows the limits of each file? Some of the descriptions are hard to follow and it seems some of them overlap.

Can you please give me the g p s numbers for little central

Capt Paul,

I operate a 2013 Humminbird 998c SI combo primarily in the waters around Venice, Grand Isle, and the Ponchartrain Basin. Recently I’ve noticed that my waypoints are saving but my tracks are starting to disappear from one trip to the next. I believe I’m at memory…

Capt. Paul,

I am about to buy a new gps system and have narrowed it to the Humminbird Helix 10 and the Lowrance Elite 9Ti. I have looked at the Legend Geaux Card and it looks great. However, due to the graphics on the Humminbird down imaging, I was leaning that way, but also want a great…

Is your program still available? When I click on the link it defaults, saying not available?
Yes it is. I am working with the Sportsman mag to correct the link.
In the meantime go to the SPORTSMAN STORE and search for Fishing Edge. It will retrieve all of the different Edge files.
Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
Captain Paul

Recently purchased a Lowrance Hook 5, the screen has a lot of clutter from the surface down to the bottom, cannot distinguish any fish, (if any) between the top and bottom. Any suggestion on how to correct this?

On our old unit (black & white) the fish where symbols of fish in various…

Hey Capt. Paul,

I am looking for the coordinates for a rig around Bay Eloi that is called the 'Dolly Parton' rig because it has two big tanks.

Thanks for the help.

I bought my boat new with a Lowrance Elite 7 DSI with transducer mounted in the hull. I recently upgraded to the HDS 7 Gen3. I was told that if the transducer had the blue connectors it would work. I have no information on what transducer is in my boat, from what I have read it was a 83/200. …

I always thought all blue connectors were the same. Did you ask Lowrance about this?
