Google Earth has long been one of the best resources for anglers wondering where to fish or looking for new ways to approach familiar fishing spots. Whenever I’m in an unfamiliar part of the the country, I call my location up on Google Earth to see if I can find fishing spots near me.
Today, the company launched a new version of Google Earth, with many new features. The coolest one is the 3D button, which allows you to view a landscape from virtually any angler. To give you an idea of what these new perspectives look like, we checked out ten famous fishing locations. How many of them can you name? Leave your guesses in the comments below.
