if you go to the LMIC website they have more up-to-date pics that are better resolution

Can you post a link to how to find those pictures on LMIC? I dug around on the site, but only found maps, not photos. Thanks in advance.

Mapquest.com has recently updated their site, and in the upper-right hand corner of the map, you can flip back and forth between a traditional street map and arial photo. I just looked for the area that I am hunting this weekend, and it looks like the aerial photo is from sometime within the past year and a half or so.

Google Earth is far and away the best photo tool that I have found. I monkeyed around with a couple of others (NASA, yada yada yada, etc) and Google Earth is by far the easiest to use and find locations.

Plus, you can save locations and easily get back to them! Very nice for cataloging multiple hunting sites.

also on the lmic site is north star mapper (google north star mapper to find it). very nice site that will give you 2003 color photos, land use land cover, 1991 black and white photos, topo maps, township range, etc

the images of my area seem to be the same as google earth, but it is a whole lot harder to download and install and get viewing software.

However, once you download it, you don't have to be hooked up to the internet. (I am taking my laptop up to deer camp.)

Otherwise google and terraserver earth is far better in my opinion.

Anyone have opinions of the other advantages of the lmic

Thanks for posting the links. I'm seeing the same images on LMIC and Google Earth for my area, but it's nice to see it from a different source.

FYI, if you use Google Earth Pro and Garmin Mapsource you can go back and forth between the two--something I do. See your tracks and routes overlaid on the aerial photo. It's a pretty great tool.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
