I had thought about putting this in the electronics section, but I figured I’d be better off asking here. I’m thinking about upgrading to a new fish finder and I was wondering if any of them came preloaded with a map of lake Shawnee? My old Lawrence Elite (what became the hook) doesn’t have it, and I know a new chip is a possibility but side imaging seems like it would be fun to play with. I’m mostly looking at the EchoMAP, helix and the elite Ti2’s as they have the ability to make your own maps if the lake isn’t already mapped. I’m also open to any advice as to which one is best and why? 

If you are referring to shawnee county lake in topeka,Lakemaster card for hummingbird has it, so does navionics. You have to buy the chip either way.

I have both. I prefer lakemaster, but it does not cover the power plant lakes or Olathe.

Pretty sure my Garmin's have it but I'd have to check.

I was just talking Lake Shawnee right there in Topeka. Shawnee county would be good too because it’s just down the road like Lake Shawnee

No hurry but it might seal the deal if it does. And thank you to the both of you.

La Cygne was weird yesterday. Outlet was 47, bluff was 52, dam was 47, ramp was 49, bite was nonexistent. Caught a few whites and one largemouth that went 4.74.

If the outlet was the same temp as the dam, I assume they are not generating power.

The stack was going all day and the flat north of the outlet was the warmest water in the lake by a few tenths of a degree, no idea what exactly was going on.

Fished La Cygne today. It was up and stained as expected. Outlet was 47 again, bluff dropped from 47 at the point to under 43 in about 20 yards and there was a noticeable current flowing from the river towards the lake. I caught a white bass on a crankbait and had 2 taps on a shakyhead that didn't hold onto the bait. Also snagged about a 10lb koi at the outlet on a jigging spoon that came off at the boat, I was kind of sad to lose that one, it was almost completely bright orange. I almost went to Wolf but the fog scared me off, I guess I would have done just as good from the bank there most likely.
