Hello to everyone. Looking for some help regarding finding map(s), topo's for Lewis and Clark Reservoir on the Missouri River, on the border of South Dakota and Nebraska. Either I am looking in the wrong places or the maps don't exist (which I find hard to believe). Haven't contacted the states as of yet, though thought info on maps would have been on the internets. Thanks a bunch.

I recently acquired a Navionics Explorer DVD with over 10k lake maps. Your Lewis and Clark contour map is on the DVD. There are some other Lewis and Clark Lakes up that way but this one straddles the South Dakota/Nebraska line for almost the entire length of the lake. It looks like the lake has some interesting bottom structure, but the top looked like it was getting pretty "hard".....you maybe planning an ice fishing trip?:biggrin:

Hey there Terry. Yeah, that seems to be a hot spot there. When we were there, even though the wind was us up, that area is like a busy highway for boats. Did you fill the Lund up with walleyes this fall?

I got mine off EBay. I have not checked the Cabela's price....(Sorry, RXTC), but the Buy It Now Prices on EBay range from eighteen to twenty-five bucks or so.
With the higher end prices you get free shipping, so it's a break even either way. Go to EBay and do a search for "Navionics Explorer" and you should get four or five options. As I recall, I got mine from BasementBusiness and it got here in three or four days.

CW,

The price at Cabela's is $19.99 with free shipping to your local store. I always need another reason to check out the bargain cave.

Can't believe I've missed this. Is this something relatively new? And for only $20 with print capability! Looks great for planning.

For those who have this, is it worth getting?

Hmmmmm.......it's only 150 miles from here to Cabela's in KC. At 15mpg....ten gallons up and ten gallons back....obligatory
dinner out for Hausfrau....what a deal! I can get the Cabela's disc in hand for less than two hundred bucks. :rofl: Or pop the PayPal account for slightly less than twenty-five......decisions, decisions.....!:confused:
This is really a super program. It won't take the place of your mapping chip in your GPS, but it will let you do some serious dry land
looking for spots that have potential for holding walleyes. The DVD has more than 10,000 individual lake contour maps, but they are the standard 5' contours in most instances. Included in the package is one free download of a high definition lake of your choice (assuming the lake you want has been surveyed by Navionics in one foot increments) . The booklet says you can buy additional lakes in HD and download them for a modest fee. I've been playing with my program for about a week, and have not yet figured out all the bells and whistles, but so far it looks like I have a whole bunch of maps for about 0.2 of a cent each that I can pore over, print up as needed, steal ...I mean...borrow....various mapping chips with waypoints to transfer onto the maps in my laptop, and double click my own waypoints from the computer. Now I am beginning to understand a little bit of what Doc Sampson does with his
electronic command center onboard his boat.
No matter where you get the Navionics Explorer DVD program, it seems to be a great bargain when compared to the cost of paper maps. It is totally compatible with your Navionics mapping chips, and virtually every brand of quality GPS units any of us are likely to
use. If you fished a different lake every day for the rest of your life, it would still take ten years to fish all of these.....and there are
quite a few of the major lakes in Canada included as I recall. I'm pretty sure Navionics will be sending along my endorsement check any day now. :rofl: Seriously.....I don't see how you can go wrong for the price of the program.

EBay doesn't do "backorder"........double check to make sure the seller has the DVDs on hand and available to ship. I saw one Buy It Now "auction" that had a caveat down in the fine print about the program was a special order item and might take two or three weeks to ship.....if it doesn't say that then it should be good to go.

Hi CH 65 the bite was real good up on Lewis & Clark this fall . the saugers where nice and fat. I went up their 5-6 times this fall ,most fish where caught in the river channels in 20-25 fow either out in front of wiegand marina on the Neb. side or on the S.D. side from Gavin's point east to the dam.The lake does freeze over but with the river currents it's not safe to ice fish, I have heard of people ice fishing the river west of the lake I never have.
