lookin' fer maps

I've been wearing out my search engines trying to find Mississippi river maps online. I'm thinking along the lines of the types of info in the DNR Lakefinder site, but for the Mighty Miss and Her tributaries in the St. Cloud, Minticello and Elk River Areas. Any ideas? Links? Clues?

Hey RobertC,
I've been beatin' that dead horse too. There isn't that much out there for other info that I can find. Try out this site though. It has the Topo and the Aerial Maps. You can zoom right in on pretty much any object, lake, pond, river, farm, you name it. It also tells you what date the photo was taken. I use it to find new hunting and fishing areas. Its all point and click.

Let me know what you think.

TundraKing-
Welcome and thank you!! The aerial photo maps are great, once I establish a benchmark, like a known dam, intersection or huge man-made structure. In concert with Mapquest, I ought to be able to find my way around on land pretty well. It's really cool, too. I feel like I'm in a Tom Clancy novel, going over satellite intelligence!!

Mapquest also has its own Aerial Photo feature which shows up as a tab once it pulls up the location or address you punched in or searched for.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
