    Sorry Andrew.

    I do not know of any sites with GPS co-ordinates on.

    I am currently trying to mark as many of them on my gps as possible. Even if i stop on the way past just long enough to enter it.

    If i find any i will let you know
    The best day to go fishing is any day that ends in a "y"

    It all depends on the way you have your GPSr programmed..
    The Points for YFP can be written as :
    S26.73079 E27.63111 or
    S26 43.847 E27 37.867 or
    S26 43 50.8 E27 37 52.0

    they will all take you to the same place which is YFP..

    Sure thing Andrwe.

    As soon as tomtom is home i will post the co-ordinates of the places i have for you. There are however a few "Private" spots that i can only post at the risk of loosing my privelage to fish there but as for the others. Soon to be posted for you.

    yes they will, however no one uses decimals anymore. Degrees , minutes, and seconds is the way to go if you want to conform to what just about every one is doing. If you are going to use "Info Maps", they still have theirs in decimals, and have decided to re print the whole lot with degrees, minutes and seconds, as no one seems to be buying their maps anymore.
    Hope this helps.
