I doubt there is anywhere that you can view live images via satellite. I would think that would be an invasion of privacy or something.

I think what Harvey had in mind was a real time picture to view real time conditions. Boy, I wish there was such a thing. I guarantee you that it's "out there", just not available to the general public wink.gif

Google Earth is a great program. Although a lot of parts of MN arent all that clear like the large, popular cities. Even if you cant see your house in MN its still an awesome program to play around with. Also, if you want to find a pretty good quality aerial photo, try Terraserver. The pics may be pretty dated though, like 10 years or so old. But still cool.

For county by county MN aerial maps google search for LMIC (Land Management Information Center) and go to the section 'NAIP 2003 and 2003-04 Aerial Photography'

These are'.sid' files - aerial coverage for most MN counties, flown 2003-2004. There's a little learning curve to acquiring and using the data, but the help files are there. A plug-in for MS explorer is required to view, and its a free download from Lizardtech. Once installed, you can view the files from your browser. County files are large to download - bonus if you have high speed. You might be able to order CD's as well...

Very detailed, colored maps!!

Google must have updated their images recently; I was never impresed with the image quality but I checked it out again this week and the are that I hunt is now very clear and I can see some of the areas that have changed (clear cuts and whatnot) in the recent past. If you haven't been on there in a whil, it might be worth another look.

There is no real live satellite imagery, unless you want to pay Digital Globe or Space images a lot of money. That is presuming there is coverage where and when you need it. The best most of us can do is not more than 10 years old or so.

Most of the high resolution photos on Geosrver or Google Earth are taken from airplanes and aren't satellite images.

I have noticed that Mapquest has really stepped up its aerial photography. When you map a place, on the top right of the map that is shown, there is a button for aerial photo.

The navigation that you can do with the map is pretty cool also. Just left click, hold, and move the map where you want it.

Although it is not "up to the day" current, I think it can give a person a good layout of the land.

      Hi all. I'm a newbie. And Iowan, but I love everything Minnesota. Ice Fishing is a short season here. I'm down by cedar rapids. Girlfriend and I are going to faribault this weekend to try some lakes. Any tips would be appreciated. I honestly don't keep many walleye back here, we imposed our own 17 in to 24 in all we keep standard. And it's helping the River in our area. At Least we think so.  Anyway, we're just looking for some good walleye and Pike action any bonus panfish too. If you could give us some legit pointers . That would make an awesome trip. Thanks again. Tight lines

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.

      I broke a bunch also at first  my bear paws just squeeze a little to hard! You definitely need to be carefull when putting them on to much pressure and another one bites the dust. Great bobber and concept can be used for a slip or fixed bobber just a little fragile.

      Some good sticks there!
