depth and water temp usually, those boats might have been mapping the bottom

uhhhh.......i dont think they were maping the bottom of c-hull with them ocean trolling boats if they were they have long ways to go.....i was told by a folgie here that c-hull was damed up without any land clearing so the bottom looks about the same all around,,snaggs.

That is acutally what they were doing. There were four of them in total. I saw them putting in at Granville about a week ago. They work for one of the companies (Navionics maybe?) that make the cards for the GPS units. They are doing this so that the cards will show the contour lines of the lake bottom. My 2008 edition card does not include Cordell Hull.
I pray to fish until my dying day. When it comes to my last cast, I then most humbly pray, when in the Lord's safe landing net & I'm at peace that in His mercy I be judged big enough to keep.

ahh... maybe that explains the 52 inch flat screen that i saw on their boat, but the two boats that i saw had out riggers for trolling, or it could have been for co-ax cb antennas...?
if were mapping c-hull lake thats cool too,but if they did i wonder how far up the lake\river they went. i was at gainsboro area when i saw them.
u know its weird, i was fishin the caney today and i just happen to look twards the interstate bridge and saw two of the similar boats that i saw being hauled by a rig goin westbound , but i never seen a 18 wheeler on a boat ramp.
btw, the lake is flowing in some spots with the usual big trees floating down with it.

i would bet they only need to map the channels where the water stays in it year round,a satelite could map the rest of it while it was at winter pool & save a lot of time & $,mike243
