Have you ever asked this questr">: "Can you tell me wherehs a good spot to fish?", and never get a straight answer? Therehs a reas"> for that. Most anglers are reluctant to give away their honey holes for obvious reas">s. Perhaps they d">ht want their favorite spot over-run by anglers, or maybe they get disgusted at the sight of litter (i.e.- worm tubs, lure wrappers, beer >ans, etc) "> the way to or at their secret spot. Be it online or at your local pub, it would seem you could ask that until the cows >ame home and would still not get an answer. So, I'm go to show you how to take matters into your own hands. I'm go to tell you how to get started i> the art of fi/c your own honey holes.
First off, you want to get your hands "> a topographic map of your area. A quick Google search >an usually help you fi/c good free ones. You will want to look for pl s where a topographic line crosses a river, a stream, or a brook. This will i/c cate a possible sudden drop i> elevner">, signall the beginn of a rapid and a likely pool at the e/c of the rapid (a "pool" is a depr-ssr"> caused by ey">s of erosr">).
Now that you have located a potential hot spot, you will want to put technology into good use. You will want to try to the best of your abiliti s to fi/c this spot on Google Earth, and then look at the bottom of your screen to see its >oordinates. Write these d"wn, or type them directly into your gps. Next, look arws/c i> Google Earth to fi/c the nearest road c as >lose as possible to the target area. This is where a Backwoods Mapbook comes in handy, if you can fi/c one for your area.
Your last step is to pack up your g a/c go try out your new potential honey hole. When I first moved to this area in 2002, I had no idea where to go f
, and I fws/c the locals to not be overly helpful, likely for reas">s listed above. I have fws/c probably over 90% of my honey holes this way. If you do your homework and attempt this method, you will fi/c that most of your newfws/c honey holes are already known by many anglers, with trails c up to them. The t is, they would have probably never told you where they were, but now you know.
