First up in 4 parts is the depth maps of the lower 2/3 of Credit Island Harbor
Now here is the area of the bicycle bridge from 2011 and after it was finished in Fall of 2012. It's more than obvious that it does NOT meet the standard set forth in US Army Corps of Engineers Nationwide Permit # 14 which CLEARLY and UNEQUIVOCALLY states that:
"Temporary fills must be removed in their entirety and the affected areas returned to pre-construction elevations. The areas affected by temporary fills must be revegetated, as appropriate."
How anyone could have signed off on this Mess in Good Faith is beyond me
So much for 21st Century Yuppies and their "Feel Good" environmental projects ....
Here are a couple of the wingdam off the tip of Credit Island down to the I-280 bridge
And the same maps in 3D which I use to locate current breaks and seams for catching flathead catfish. I've caught a dozen or so in this area since 2010 between 25 and 37 pounds. It used to be a good spot for channels cats in the yellow and orange areas along the shore which is a gravel and sand bar but has been ruined by people dumping their garbage there because enforcement and fines are so weak it just doesn't stop them.
Here are some of the wingdam just below the I-280 bridge. Most of this data is from Walleye Master Fisherman Bruce "Doctor Sonar" Samson. If you want to learn the ins and outs of Lowrance fishfinder and gps mapping devices this is the place you go.
This is a little further downstream just across from Horse (Enchanted) Island. It's a normal wingdam at a right angle to the river and a closing wingdam that goes downstream (left) to another regular wingdam
These really don't do justice to these maps when they are used live on the water, I've got some software that records the screen like a movie and I'll try to make so live usage videos this summer. I also have a new toy that I'll introduce in a couple of weeks, basically a WiFi fishfinder that uses an Android or Apple phone or tablet as the screen which I'll be able to get screen shots to embed in the waypoints of my maps. I'm also going to introduce a new project in the next day or two.
