Why don't you just come out and ask for the coordinates!

I think he just did, . If you want coordinates for Granby (or any other lake for that matter) buy a map with GPS coordinates at Sportsman's Warehouse, Gander, BPS, etc... . They will put you in the ballpark for structure and catching for sure. That's how I learn new lakes. Take care and best of luck!

I really doubt anyone is going to give you their secret spots on that lake.

My advice is to get out there with your boat before it freezes and start learning the structure and marking it in a way that makes sense to you. Everyone I know has their own "code" for what their waypoint names mean. And no one with data worth anything is just going to give them away to a stranger.

I've spent a whole bunch of time motoring around on that lake marking structural anomalies and running down new ideas and hunches--- scores of hours just over the last few years. I learn something new and worthwhile every time.

Have fun!

K I'll ask, I'm lazy...K maybe not that lazy, send all coordinates to meeeeee. I'm goin out with Bernie on the guided thing on Thursday. Not even gonna take the GPS. I'll send you coordinates by triangular points I spot. Hill on that side lines up with hill on the other side. Like GFYODF says, only way is to mark it yourself. Hope we have a good day Thursday.

Try this spot (39.748761, -105.048695), i've always had good luck there. If that doesn't work, you should do alright here (39.734858, -104.966791).

How is your GPS set up?
DMS?
UTM?
DDM?

Here is a link that you can enter the coords ( like the ones above) and actually see where they are.
