Default Need GPS nav help

Need a couple nav maps... or at least a look at one or two, and most people out here don't have GPS lake maps on their finders.

I know some of these next gen fish finders have topo maps with thousands of bodies of water in them... uploaded from other users and such. If anyone has such access to these topo maps, could you look up a lake for me?

Old City Lake (Cookeville, TN)

36.120562, -85.444713



It's a historical landmark out here, and seems to be a well established fishery... but local knowledge of underwater structure and river channel seems to be either non-existent or highly guarded.


If someone could take a look on a nav-map database for me and see if it even has been charted, I would be most appreciative. If you have the ability to send or post a pic (or two) of the map, assuming it exists, it would be MOST appreciated. Might even send a Subway gift card or something your way.



Anyway, thanks... and if this one works out, I have one or two others I'd like to look up as well. All small lakes. The big lakes and reservoirs all have readily-available maps in spiral-bound book form in Wal Mart and some can even be found online for free... These smaller bodies of water though... Not so much.

I have been. Lots of small bass and big gills... No hits on the cut bait or livers yet. I'm really looking for the deeper channels and holes to try for cats.

Yes, but not for cats. The bass there are active as hell at night. I was going for cats, but with Senkos.... Didn't have any livers or cut bait. I posted a report on that trip.

Was thinking of going there tonight after work, but its going to be a late one.

You need to just start bringing a cot out there, go out late after work rig up, cast out, put a bell on your pole, and nap it out

I'm sorry, but I have a hard time believing that you think you need a map for a small river like that. Are you serious?

Its a long serpentine lake with a dam at one end. The pic shows the skinny end...

I do not have a boat, so I am curious about structure and the river channel. Since I am shore-bound I would like to have a bit of topographical Intel about the water that is accessible by shore.

Yea, I'm serious.

You should be able to tell where the channels swings are just by studying the bank.

Thanks longdraw. Yea, I can see the general channel area, as it flows through the lake in front of the natural area there... Unfortunately I cannot see deeper spots or underwater terrain... Unlike the larger reservoirs around here that are super clear and deep, this water is very cloudy and murky... Its very difficult to determine what the bottom looks like or if there is any unique structure in the depths.

One nice thing, bass are in the shallows like a mother f-er and there are some BIIIIG ones in there. 6-7 pounds isn't an uncommon capture.

But I don't give a sh- about bass.

I need a small raft or boat... I can chart the damn lake myself.
