So I finally bought a new to me sled last night. I don't have gps yet, but i know i need it. I got my shanty and bunches of gear. I'm really just looking to maybe meet up with a guy or group, once i make sure my sled is all good to go, too kinda show me the trail out to the fishing areas. I've never really fished the east side at all, and I've never been out that far on the ice. Any help would be appreciated. I'm looking to go maybe Sunday.

Got a polar plunge Saturday so I'm a little tied up. That's why I'm planning on Sunday.

You mentioned you don't have a GPS. I would at least put navionics on your phone. It is better than nothing.

Don't mean to hijack your thread but my brother and I want to head up there on Saturday. We've never been on the bay before and are nervous about not knowing the ice/etc. We'd love to have someone let us semi-tag along. We don't need too much help, just want to follow someone some of the way out so we can travel safely. We'll even buy the beer and bring the venison snacks!

If all else fails just show up at a popular place like Sunset Bay Marina and ask someone if you can tag along because you are new to fishing the bay. There are plenty of stand up guys that would be glad to let you tag along. Throw in beer and venison snacks and you just might make a new lifelong friend

I just bought navionics us and Canada last Friday through Google play as well, very pleased with app, took me in and out on same line and great contours as well, about 2' off though due to higher water, but easy enough to compensate.

Us / Canada paid version is what i have. I lost a pair of needle nose pliers fishing 2 weeks ago Navionics took me to within 5 feet of the pliers one week later and I recovered them...

Franks had the lowrance elite 4 gold gps/chartplotter....with the navonics gold card included for 229 last time I was there.

Just used mine for the first time today...worked great on higgins...all contours were spot on...and the gps had me driving in my tire tracks when I was following my trail back..
