Venice offshore platform fishing

Dear Capt. Paul:

I am a native of Louisiana currently living in Texas. I have a Texas registered 28-foot boat with twin 300-horsepower Verados with joystick steering.

I want to tow the boat to Venice to take my uncle fishing offshore for tuna. I’m looking for Thunder Horse, Diana and Hoover coordinates, if you have them.

How to transfer Google Earth data to your GPS

Dear Capt. Paul:

I learned how to plot a path with waypoints on Google Earth. The problem is I am unsure which format to use so it will work with my GPS.

I have a month-old Garmin 547xs. Does anyone know which format I am supposed to use? If needed I can list the options that GPS Babel gives me.†

Removed platform sites can be great fishing locations

Dear Capt. Paul:

I am looking for coordinates of shell pads that might exist in Lake Borgne and around Bay Eloi.

Any old rig pads, old islands or points, etc. would be great.

Thanks.†

Determining GPS courses

Dear Capt. Paul:

Recently, a skipper of a vessel put a waypoint into the GPS, and the display showed the direction and distance to that point, but it is not the same as the course to steer plotted on the chart.

Why is this? What would cause this?

Position format is important

Dear Capt. Paul,

I have some coordinates directly from a buddy’s GPS, but they are not bringing me to the same location as his GPS? Is there more than one way to measure/input coordinates? What are we missing here? Why won’t they work?
