Using Google earth

Just wondering if anyone has triend using google earth to have a look for fishing in close?

It shows some pretty good detail around the metro area.  Or another handy Idea is to find the location of where other boat are which are stationary...

its a good idea but most parts of the map are arouns 2 years old so alot changes in that time

Work is just for people who havn't discovered fishing

Like lukegeogre just said....i use it all the time to find good systems of reef and stucture for shore based fishing but because the images are 2 years old plus its hard but still worth the look for places like rotto and abrohlos etc.

Keep it tight, reeeeeeel tight!

its good river wise... :P

but dont need google earth, can just use google maps online and then switch to the sattelite imagery of the area.. that way you dont get all the fluff and all the bullshitting...

but google earth = good because its fun to use... nothing more.
