create a folder on the left called "fishing spots" or something. Drag and drop all your placemarks in this folder. Right click on the "fishing spots" folder and "save as" - choose a location and a name. This will automatically save it as a .kmz that can be shared.

Extremely slow, guys don't want to share spots, It takes me about 4 days to pinpoint and chart a spot. I understand why they don't want to share, there are real )(*&^%$#@! out there that destroy and rape our coast. I even put my E-Mail out but no responses. If you want a location pleas ask and if I have it I will let you know.

Anyway.

A helluva lot of spots I found labelled on gov 1:50000 maps..FYI..dealing with the gov mapping dept also was an absolute pleasure. The digital copys are free if you take blank DVD's to the offices and ask for them. Same ones you'd pay a fortune for from mapstudio etc..made with our tax moneys and digital copies free if you contact the dept.
