Does anyone know of any GPS maps (or paper maps with coordinates) of North Texas area lakes? In particular I am looking to locate brush piles in Ray Roberts and the humps in Lewisville. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Years back I bought a map from bass pro that had all the brush piles on Ray Roberts on it with coordinates. I remember asking the fishing counter for it and they had them in the back somewhere and not out on the shelf. Any topo map for your boat electronics or your phone will show you the humps on Lewisville. Navionics and aqua maps work well for those.

I obtained the Ray Bob brush pile coords from someone on this forum a few years back. I punched them all into my old humminbird at the time and used them for several years. I just now thought about the guy who bought my old boat and graphs. He has a gold mine of crappie spots on lew and Ray Bob now.

If your fish finder has GPS I think your better off that way. Fishing ledges and humps is easier done with a GPS map on a fish finder if you ask me. if you want to do it on the cheap just download the navionics app on your phone. You can do the same thing with it.

Download the navionics app to your phone. Its cheap and works pretty good. Its not as good as the map card you can load on your graph but it dang sure beats a paper map. I doubt you will find any map that has many brush piles listed on it. Those tend to be somewhat personal information.

Funny I clicked on this Navionics Map and think I found those trees in 58' of water. I was trying to figure out what the heck I was dragging on when my line was only maybe 30' suspended below the boat (estimated).

I have a Lowrannce Elite 5. Do you think I should still also download Navionics?

This....The detail and ability to study the maps which are constantly updated is priceless below is a quick screen shot of Ray Roberts on the App.
