    Going to be out at Otay tomorrow morning. Where is a good place to launch/fish while floating? I've never been to Otay and hoping to get some fish on plastic worms, if this is what's working right now.

    Yes, if you have exact change. If not, you can get it at the concession stand or the iron ranger by the concession stand (it only gives dollar coins as change)

    There IS good fishing at that spot. Looking at that picture, deep water and a rock pile on the right, deep water at the point, shallower water with a decent drop-off on the left. Decent fishing in the tullies too.

    Nice constructed map. Whenever I go(which is not as often as I would like it to be) I fish from shore on the point where the third star from the bottom is. Seriously, I think there's a bluegill honeyhole there. My dad also pulled a nice channel cat from the right side in the deep water. Never caught any bass there. Bass fishing went well for me off the dock in the summer. Extreme top-water action! Can't wait for that again.

    I go the easy way and insert a picture (I took a screen shot of Google maps on this one) into a blank Powerpoint slide, put everything on it, "Group" it all together, and then "save as picture". I do it on the computer.

    I have read positive reports about the Navionics app but I don't have personal experience.

    If you know Flukemaster on Youtube, he uses navionics, too.
