    Default Where can I find maps or charts online?

    People keep mentioning where the silvers are in PWS, and I don't have charts at home, so I try to find the little bays and rocks and stuff online. I am having very little success, however. Does anyone know where I can find at least a decent map of PWS with bay names online?

    For instance, I'm looking for Shoup Bay right now, and I'll be ****ed if I can find it. Lots of other info on it, just not where the heck it is....

    Oceangrafix, print on demand. They will ship it to you very fast too, if you want.
    I have had excellent customer service and great quality charts with updated info.

    Oh, thanks. I should be more specific...I don't want tp print or buy, just see where things are online to get an idea.

    Thank you, though.




    Robb---Sweet. Exactly what I was trying to find. Thank you.

    How stupid is it to be wasting tons of salmon and halibut as bycatch in the Bering Sea and then have the coastal villages hollaring they have no food? It's got to stop!

    Go to the oceangrafix site, pick Alaska charts, click on chart # 16708, then click on graphic to enlarge chart. Shoup's Bay is in northwest corner of Port Valdez.

    Google Earth is a great tool. You can zoom into the area you want to look at, or type in the place you want to look for and it flys right to it. Here is what it zoomed to when I typed in Shoup Bay...

    Wow. Thanks everyone. I think that'll cover it...lol.

    I just couldn't find those charts online in a viewable way for some reason. Just gotta know where to look, I guess.

    I did find what I was looking for, at least where the bay was, on Google Earth. But that lacks the nautical stuff which also obviously comes in handy.

    Thanks again!
