Anyone have any advice on running Tawakoni? Boat lanes etc? I was very fortunate this past weekend not to hit anything. I didn't realize the main lake south of 2 mile bridge was a minefield! Thank you and God Bless!

There is a very general map some have posted on here that you can find with the search function. With that said, the easiest and safest thing to do is to get the boat lane chip from Tom Mayne. It's a good product and will get you around the lake safely. His website is below.

Yep. Great products. The Tawakoni chip is spot on.

Tom's Tawakoni chip is good. There are a lot of ppl that run through the middle of the forest South of 2 mile that have never realized what is there. Theres a LOT more that's just under the water level. Some huge ones, too.

Yep some of that map is gonna be expensive and possibly painful to run.

I was just happy that the runs I learned on my own from idling out there were somewhat accurate.

Tom's chip was well worth the $30 to me. For me Tawakoni is a spot fishing Lake and as many spots as I can hit in a tournament day out there the better usually. Getting around quicker is just being more efficient.

I tried to find a legend on this map that made sense and did not see one. I think the purple lines must be just a general creek channel marking. If the purple lines are supposed to be boat lanes please do not use that map source on any lake. Multiple places on Tawakoni those purple lines are not the place you want to run. I looked at the Palestine map from this same source. Holy cow running the purple lines on Palestine will guarantee a busted rig minimum. Either way do not trust them as a boat lane.

You right, don't use if you are assuming some kind of freeway lane by the pink. You'd have to know how to use nautical map. Pink/purple lines are class b targets used by navigation devices.....its a lake reference, does not tell you the lake is 3-4 feet low..and doesn't have speed limits either.

I'm not sure what that reply even means. Bottom line is if the purple/pink line is meant to be any kind of navigation lane/road/reference/trail/track/passage, whatever you want to call it. It's dangerous and wrong. The lake could be 2-3ft high and the area skeeter ronnie marked is not safe to run above an idle. If you go to other maps from this same source to lakes like Palestine, Fork, Richland Chambers the lanes (if that is what the purple/pink truly is) are even more dangerous. Not trying to start an argument just don't want someone killing themselves because of bad advice.

Actually you are trying to insinuate I'm giving advise .....I said it saved me...."This map has saved me and saved me $30 bucks.....but then again I don't run 50MPH trying to get to a spot."

Use it or not. I provided a map....sorry some don't understand what it meant....just an opinion like all others. Shouldn't be a cause for anyone to die.

Let's go brandon!

Well, explain it then for those of us not intelligent enough to use a "nautical map". Are those lines meant to be safe passage or just there for decoration? If the lines mean nothing, then how would one determine where it is safe to run from this map?

I don't know what the purple lines are either but the one that runs down the middle of the main lake runs directly through the "minefield " I'm talking about.

The chip for Tawakoni is money well spent!

I paid for the email download from Tom and put it on my Lowrance Carbon. it is a very thorough set of lanes and the stump fields are clearly marked. Money very well spent.
