EDGE ROUTES around the MRGO DAM
~ Captain Paul's response to: ~ Dick Jurisich ~
The CAPTAIN PAUL’S FISHING EDGE OF GPS WAYPOINT, has a file for MRGO WAYPOINTS and Routes around the new Hopedale Dam.
The waypoints consists of positions WHERE the Navigation Aids (NAVAIDS) were located along the banks of what WAS the MRGO. They were included as many anglers gave directions to a location by turning when you reached a certain Day Marker, light, buoy or Nun along the channel.
In addition to these waypoints, the file has several routes on the north side of the MRGO and several on the south side of the MRGO that will allow a boater to navigate in the surrounding marsh to and back from an area that is east of the new dam that now blocks the old channel.
Tracks are temporary data that should not be used to navigate over and over the same location. The EDGE file has ROUTES. Routes, a series of connected waypoints allow the GPS unit to automatically give you a course and distance from point to point and make the navigation much easier. These ROUTES in the EDGE program are provided in a downloadable format for most common consumer GPS brands.
All of the EDGE files are available exclusively from the LOUISIANA SPORTSMAN’s “OUTDOOR STORE.” They are delivered via email as an attachment to your email address you provide when ordering the package.
