Aerial Photos?

10 posts in this topic

Looking for something around the Angle on the Canadian side, but does anyone know where to find something like this? Would love to have an actual, aerial photo of the lake around there. Thanks!

You can download free aerial imagery of the entire state (divided up by county) at this site. The files are in MrSID format though, not sure if most photo viewing packages can read them or not.

Photos are from 2003. They have 2006 photos on the LMIC site too, but I'm not sure if they're downloadable or not.

Thanks for both of those links, I forgot about Google Earth. I'll probably end up using that if I can't find anything else, though I would still like to find something similar to a map that I can take out on the water with me. Any other ideas of somewhere I could go to find that?

Google "Angle Inlet". Click on the first hit "Map of Angle Inlet, MN". In the upper right hand corner, click on "Satellite".

This type of photo would be a rarity.

The majority of free and readily available aerial photography are funded through federal, state, and local governments for the purpose of landuse planning and/or resource concerns. These flights are primarily leaf off, typically early spring, or sometimes late fall. Unless someone would pay for the cost of the flight or satellite scene, the chances of such a photo existing are rare.

I have used those MrSID format photos before and didn't find them to be all that great. I downloaded the viewer for them and downloaded some of the photos but the file sizes were astronomical. They are okay, but for general use, the stuff from google earth/maps, mapquest, and or terraserver are going to be okay for most users.

      Thanks for having me Minnesota. I wasn't able to float the Ottertail river but I did fish the lake every morning. Most fish the first 3 days came on top water whopper plopper. The last day, the water temperature heated up to almost 80 so I changed it up a little bit and fished deep water 10-20 feet and caught fish deep. Here's some of the better fish from this week. The fishing up here is great. Can't wait to make it back.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow
