Need some help.

I already had a nice depth sounder with no GPS, so I just needed navigation. I had an extra smartphone I don't worry about dunking, so...
I'm not saying it's for everyone. But it's worth knowing about.

I was looking to see if most of the charts and maps actually go far enough in shore to cover the marshes I/we fish. My main thing is navigation and getting into and out of a marsh I want to fish. Is anybody else using any of these phone apps and if so how are they?

Maybe I’m not as smart as I look? But it is always kind of hard to pinpoint exactly where I am sometimes. And there have been a few times where after meandering my way through channels and marshes I have scratched my head a few times on the way out as to “left or right?”

An important thing with Google Earth is to use their historical imagery setting. For Corpus/Rockport/Port O'Conner I set the imagery to 1/2017 or 1/2009. January is a low tide month and imagery on those two settings offer crystal clear images of the underwater structure. So play around with historical imagery setting on Google Earth to see which imagery shows you the most detail. Just remember imagery captured in winter and summer months will have lower tides than imagery from spring and fall.
