    I use google earth a LOT to find areas in the marsh and oyster reefs here on the coast. 95% of anglers go where somebody tells them is a good spot. You see their vehicles pulled over at all the “known areas” and see them in kayaks or wading on top of each other and boats. Digital exploration is where it’s at.

    I'm with Mr. Bagels on this one. The vast herd of fishing sheep here hot spot and constantly chase reports when they miss out on huge expanses of fishy water exposed via the satellite imagery on Google Earth. Google Earth Pro has historical imagery that can show shallow water structures otherwise invisible at normal water levels. I have my favorite vintage maps, February 2009, November 2011 and now January 2017

    I really don't want to know specifically where someone caught fish. I'd rather find fish on my own. I might share a spot, but that's mostly to send people there so that I can fish the spots I don't share in relative peace.

    I don't think anyone from anywhere near my area is on this site with the exception of Mr. Bagels and maybe one or two more. Fly fishermen in the salt here on the upper Texas coast are still definitely the exception rather than the rule. About 80 percent of the people here seem to be about killing as many fish as possible and fly fishing doesn't jive with those needs so much.

    Karst is correct. The whole “got mah limmut!” mentality down here is sickening at times. Especially messed up in my humble opinion is the guys who brag about “meat hauls” and “filling the freezer.” They could usually stand to skip a meal or twelve. Not to mention the guys who catch a limmut, stash the stringer and keep on fishing!!! How the $@#*+ is that kosher?! The best is the losers on our forums who get deeply and personally offended if you don’t tell them exactly where and how you caught your fish. Sorry for the derail. Smcnearn, you’re doing great work! Love your posts! Keep it up, friendo!
