    I`m interested in knowing how many of you use GPS to mark your fishing hotspots holes brushpiles etc? I use a garmin gpsmap 60csx and works great for me to remember my spots. i guess i`m getting halftimers disease and i`m not quite 40 yet. hmmmm i wonder if my partying days of the past may contribute to my memory loss lol.
    :eek:oooh:

    Jeff,
    I definitely use mine.
    It doesn't matter if you have halftimers or not; at night on the river without a moon that GPS can be the only way to get you to that hole you may have found the previous day...W

    GPS is one of those things that I didn't know much about until this year. Now I wouldn't own a sonar unit without one. Best invention to come along since sliced bread.

    I probably now use the GPS more than the sonar.

    When I'm not bank fishing, I use the GPS all the time.
    It's like using a flasher for ice fishing.
    Once you start using it, it is hard to fish with out it.

    It sure beats that Compass and Sextant I learned to use in the Navy.Also beats the old "Loran" and RDF's (Radio Direction Finder) we had,though now "eLoran" seems to be the thing of the future as they are installing it in Europe and the USA.GPS's are far cheaper now!I have a early Garmin & later a Lowrance with IMS (Inland Mapping Service).They are both outdated but still working well as is my 45 year old brass Compass I used to navigate to SC. & Ga.'s Artificial reefs,wrecks and Live bottoms.They are great,but never bet your life on them.I have had going and coming paths on 2 lane roads vary as much as 100+ yards at times.I love you Brothers and Sisters.peewee

    I was not allowed to post twice,but was allowed the third attempt which posted it twice.My puter does not control the BOC's puter.I then review/canceled the second post 3 times.I don;t know what happened.I don;t think that it is good enough to be posted twice.I love you Brothers and Sisters.peewee

    I use a Eagle, and depend on it quite a bit. We got fogged in on the lake late one night and the GPS brought us back in, right on the ramp. Of course there was another night when it wouldn't pick up the third satelite and ended up fishing until the sun came up. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
