I was wondering if some of you would like to see a new contour map of saginaw bay. I created it using some new technology, I can't explain it however do to other issues. I have put together a map of the information, a few landmarks, ect. Here in lies the problem, the electrionic map is created in software that is not widely available, I have an exported copy as a PDF however. Adobe acrobat is a widely available free (and simple)software that this is viewable in, I can not provide support however. If someone would like to see the map and maybe let me know roughly how accurate it is fire me off an email and I'll send it to you. I can not send out paper maps or anything like that, appologies.
Todd, I know you're going to read this, I'll put it in the mail if you send me your address at home.

I would love to check out your map. The bay is my home waters. Thanks

I'd be interested at taking a look at it.
Of Course it will be spring before I really have a chance to check the precision of it.

Thank's for the map. The Acrobat Reader gives it really a different look and perspective to be sure. A very nice map, that would give people not familiar with the Bay, an idea of its dynamics. But truthfully might not be as much help in actual navigating, as the C-Map features on my Raytheon, or the GPS Cursor feature on the Hot-Spots CD. I want to thank you again anyway for sending it. It will retain a spot in my download files. Thank's Joe.

I was hoping that it might be interesting to some of you. I wish that there was some way that I could distribute the 3D stuff I did. I can actually fly through the bay in 3D, pretty cool but not too easy to pass around. Good luck with it. I would have agree, this is not something people should use for navigating, I was hoping it be used for a more wholistic view of where you are or should be fishing, potential spots ect. This has not been QC'd and that wasn't my intent. I am unsure of the accuracy at this point.
Good Luck, Joe

Please send me a copy. E-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org ,,,thanks. I've never fished there before and would like to look over the whole bay for what you've got.
You've got mail, Joe. Thanks for your generosity and sharing your knowledge. I look forward to looking at them.
