: Chart Web Page?

I remember seeing a page that had some nautical charts for free. They weren't awesome, but good enough for a shorebound guy. I am also looking for a place with GPS coordinate listings of lighthouses and bouys. Anyone have any info on this? Can I get it for free? Or do I have to go there first.

Thanks.
Nick

Jeff - I second Nick's comment! What a wealth of chart info, nice to find maps with Chatham accurately represented (eg. the break).

Thanks and I hope the fishin's been good.

Glad I could be of some help here. I just happen to like looking these things up online and save useful links to everything. By the way for those of you who haven't visited the Harwich Harbormasters homepage it is a great launching point with a lot of links, check it out here:

Juro, spent last weekend avoiding the 'crowd' off south beach (in boats) and figured it would be foggy too. So not a lot of fishing got done but I did do some scouting on Sunday in my boat in that area you consider under utilized/capitalized in respect to Pelagics. Was able to scare up some taylor blues and nonstop scup with only one susupicous airborn torpedo spotted. I did happen to see a very sizable shark (guessing 7 -8ft) about two hundred yards off the beach lurking on the bottom over some eelgrass beds. Based on some of the South Beach reports I think I should tried over that way but my last trip produced a lot of cutoffs from blues, a bunch of dogfish and mostly small bass, to 28 inches. Pelagic scouting to be continued this weekend, hoping to find some spanish mack's soon (bonito would be a plus).

A bit early but I wish upon you the mind-boggling speedster hordes that I have witnessed slack-jawed as a land-lubber for your efforts! I would guesstimate that within two weeks (and right thru September) the area will be popping.

So you didn't go for any records with the 9wt and that shark I see }>

Sorry Juro left my best wounded schoolie imitation flies at home that day :-).
