Is there a list of all them already somewhere? I see all these great reports from XYZ and have no clue where is this location. Sometimes Google will help but ... sometimes not. I use BCL (Boerne City Lake) a lot but I'm more intreasted in the ones along the coast.

Added both - CPR definitely, but Dirty Pelican?

Also, someone did make it a sticky.
