Hey Marvin I recently found the mini trout magnet kit at Wal-Mart, along with the regular size trout magnet these jigs are made by Leland tackle. I have tried them out a little and the hay been very productive on Smallies out at the reservoir here in western South Dakota. I'm hoping to try them on crappie at Lake Sheridan this coming weekend. The last time I heard from you, you were looking for some pre-tied jigs  1/80 well the minis are 1/200 and the regulars are 1/64. I hope this will be of some help. t also online  The kits are 12.96 at Wal-Martt also online  at Leland tackle.com

( thats a bass!! )

Marvin;; i agree;; the price is a little steep;; but also look at it another way;; it will be the last unit you will ever need!  kind of like buying a old clunker car;; then wishing it was a cadillac !!  my suggestion is;; get a good unit;; and;; as for not being a computer genius;;  dont worry;;; we have-- LEO !!!  Leo;; has forgotten more than most people know about computers!!  ( my personel oppinion is;; Leo;; was asimalated ; by a nasa computer bank;; which would make Leo;; a cyborg of sorts !!  He has a computer chip;; for a brain !!  a real terrific guy !!  Leo has many post here;; to help guys with computers and depth finders ;; if its a gadget;; Leo knows about it!  

At 8:05am on September 9, 2015, carl hendrix said…

Marvin;; Lowrance is having a type of sale right now;; till Nov. !st  Depending on which unit you get;; you can get a chip for it;; free ! ( saving 100.00 dollars)  that way you can download ;; or make your own maps and things.  in just a few days I am going to get the elite 5 unite;; for around 500 dollars. ( wish it was cheaper).  but a good unit;; will last a long- long time.  colored screens;; are a LOT better than a grey scale
