Yeah it is pretty cool. Too bad they are 6-12 months behind as chatham does not look like that anymore. Still a very cool tool for getting ideas of places to fish.

That seems cool. I also am on a mac though. Bummer.
Have you all used Google Maps? maps.google.com
you can zoom right in anywhere with a "satellite view" that's very cool. You can definitely check out some fishing spots with it.
Also, for directions, it's much easier than mapquest.

Sounds like a fun place to visit but my Spyblocker gave it a very high risk rating for getting stung, so I will not be going there

Awesome tool!! Word of caution if you use it to plan trips, I looked at my girlfriend's apartment (she's lived there for two years) and it's still a dirt lot in the image. Guessing the delay could be up to three to four years in some areas.

Dave -

Did you check out Turks and Caicos? I can also see why Los Roques is worth the puddle jump from Aruba for those bent on bones. Andros is the mecca... for a lodge trip. That Cuban shoreline looks mind-blowingly vast and I would bet it's untapped.

And I thought I was the only one behind. I just can't seem to justify the $$$ just to surf...
