Finding Secret Fishing Spots With Google Earth! (Actual Favorite Waypoints Shown!)

There are so many Google Earth Tricks fishermen don’t know how to use! With our cross country move we’ve been spending a ton of time on the computer preparing to explore new lakes. We’ve found a bunch of new spots using this method and today we’re showing you how to do the same. Come along to some of our favorite fisheries and see our best spots as you learn the methods! (If you’re a California angler, get ready to write down some coordinates!)

Every angler knows you can jump on google maps and get a good idea of what a lake looks like before you arrive. But few anglers know how to remove distortion from the map, jump between different water levels and times of year, drop waypoints, and export all of it to the electronics on your boat. Its amazing how far technology has come and if you’re not progressing, you’re falling behind. 

Google Earth is just one of the tools you have available as an angler today. Modern electronics have seen huge advancements as have the mapping cards that we use with those units. Google Earth is a free program that any angler with a computer can use. We combine that program with a few different electronics to maximize our time on the water. Below you’ll find links to a few of our favorite items from different brands to help maximize your time on the water.
