Which is the better ramp? What about with SW wind? Thanks...

 

Sepulvado landing or the Blue Lake Launch?

Sepulvado is perrty well protected as well but it can get shallow very quick if the water level is down a bit. I had a hard time getting on and off the trailer there during teal season one year.

 

Blue lake is very well protected doesn't matter the wind you can get off and on the trailer easy there. Well as long as you don't mind waiting for half of Sabine parish to finish drinking and smoking and shooting the bull to get out your way.

I got mine from Wal-Mart in many louisiana. Not sure where your located but you might try your local Wal-Mart.

 

Are maybe Google hook and line maps maybe they have a website you can order from.

All I really like to read this forum. I have a lake house on Toledo and fish as often as I can.

 

I really get frustrated with the common names that locals use for certain fishing areas, and without local knowledge, you never figure out where they are talking about.  Well, in effort to not I cry about it and develop something useful, I created a google KMZ file that has all of the Toledo Bend fishing spot names that I know of. I will share with you to allow for others to fill in their local fishing spot names that I missed. If you add to the KMZ, change the version of the KMZ and re-upload it, for example, Toledo Bend Maps version 2.

 

I hope this works.

Toledo Bend Maps.kmz

Ok all, I took the file created by Toledo Banger and converted it to a GPX file and a .USR file. The USR file should load to a SD card and then to a Lowrance plotter. If there is intrest I will see what I can do for the Hummingbird users out there. Found the info on doing the converions on this link: https://doctorsonar.com/blogs/educational-articles/12390197-google-earth-and-lowrance-waypoints 

 

Thank you @Toledo Banger

@Catt, in the top left (the port side) :) of the screen you should see Toledo Bend Maps.KMZ (orginal file) or GPX if you used the one I uploaded. If you do not see that select file at the top and load, find the file you saved on your computer, hilight it and select open. Now you should see the names listed, double click one and it will take you to that location on the map.

 

Heading back up Thursday, look like it will be anogther wet one for me, but it still beats work. You going to be up this weekend with all the other pros?

Under the drop down it shows it file but all it will let me do is delete it!

@Catt, not sure what is going on. Are you using Google Earth from a web browser or did you download to your computer? I get off work at 5pm if you want to try and work through it. This is going to be really nice once we all get it to working right.

BTW guys, if anyone here is interested in an intense electronics learning weekend where you will learn mapping, image interpretation, and establishing patterns in a classroom setting along with a half day trip in the boat to put into practice what you learn in the classroom, please contact me ASAP. We will be doing this at Cypress Bend on May 9-11. We only have 12 spots left available.

If I had better electronics too apply the lesson too I would totally be in on this.

 

Any chance you will do this say on a yearly base's. Will be sometime before I can upgrade my electronics but once I do I would be in the class for sure.

If all goes well this round, I plan on doing this atleast once a year. I do a lot of electronic trips in the boat and I teach electronic classes in the classroom, so we will see how it goes putting them both together. I think it will be the best of both worlds.

Pine trees are pollinating so it's that green powder everywhere including my sinus!

 

Some Azaleas are blooming & so are pear trees.

 

I'll play with Google Earth later 😉

It just opens a google earth map for me.  That may be what is supposed to happen.  I am no rocket surgeon.

Under "Places" on the left, you should see Toledo Bend Maps.kmz.  Expand that and you can select the location names that you it to to display.

It shows a drop down, open that there's "my places", open that there's a file titled file:///storage/emu...oBendMaps.kmz

 

All it will let me do is delete that file, it will not open!

Hi to everybody on this thread. I just found this forum a few days ago!

 

I have a house in the Hickory Ridge area. I am sure hoping y'all can give me some pointers on where to fish. My productivity has been very poor of late and I have decided that this spring and early summer I am going to fish hard and reverse that trend. So I'll be stalking around trying to get some pointers from the people on this thread on where to fish and what my wife and I should throw at them.

My trip to TB is only 3 weeks out. Been pouring over maps......packing wheel bearings......servicing gear....etc. Excited to be back on the big pond after 22 years away from it. I'll be staying in San Patricio. Any tips or advice would be appreciated.

Fish hard, fish long, think outside the box and kick bass.
