Most of the pictures are about 5 years old or so.

fishhead Being on a Mac most every work day, I can't use the google map program, BUT I can go to terraserver by microsoft and get some decent zoomable views. The imagery is dated 1999 and 2002 both good enough to scout new waters from above. The latter date has less area imaged out of the metro areas of Raleigh, NC but the B/W '99 covers my daily driving route just fine. I found today 19 more ponds just minutes from my home. One I found via Sat imagery near me is a big SCORE! I asked the country store owner near it who owns the property. He gave me a good name and in one phone call I've got a new 1.5 acre pond to fish full of Shellcrackers, bluegills, bass and who knows what else. All it costs is two dozen fresh farm eggs to the owner and one doz to the store owner for the tip. yee-haaa! and this place looks pretty fishy with tree blowdowns for structure, a dam and a shallows for spawning. Gotta get more spiders tied!

teflon_jones Google Maps is just about as Google earth in my opinion, and there's nothing to download. You need a high speed internet connection to really get the most out of them though.

fcch Google earth is also neat to share places, ...

The following link is the kmz file for our home waters.

MCorder Google Earth is's fun to select locations and then take a tour, the map zooms in and out and pans to the different locations.

Swalt Not sure if you were on the Google map site or the Google Earth site. Google Earth requires a download but it is free, unless you get the pro, and has more detail in some areas than the Google map. Very good program.

I was astonished by the satellite pictures on the site. It gives the opportunity to have a real good look at the fishable spots.
The USA is shown in great detail, Europe though has a lot worse resolution.
Do any of you know a site that gives the same high quality pics as but then for Europe?
