Server Maps on Search


Recommended Posts

Has anyone else used the new maps on google? How cool is that!

The maps are draggable so no reloading every time you want to move the map, find the spot you are looking for and then click the satelite link and it switches to the actual image which is also draggable. It's so cool. Find a lake switch to the image and then you can pick two points and see how far the distance is between the two.

No wonder the stock is through the roof wink.gif

I had no idea that was possible. Now I'm going to have to go check this out.

I've been using it to locate farm ponds that I never knew existed. Most of the owners will let you fish them if you ask. smile.gif

I just tried it. Its Ok. But if you go to terraserver, the zoomed images are quit often much better. You can easily make out individual buildings. Google might do it also, but the address I tried, it wouldn't.

It also has the topographical feature that you can switch to.

Its easy to find on the web. Just type it into to your internet explorer bar, and I bet it will find it easily, being Terraserver is a collaboration of Microsoft and the USGS.

Is there one that shows the depths of lakes and little ponds like terra server and different than the dnr one and is free?

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.

      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?
