Ok guys i put in at Columbia bottoms 3-4 times a week. My boat has 12gal tank on a 35hp jet.... its not the best on fuel by any means... i can run 12gal's out going from Columbia bottoms ramp to the dam in Alton 2 times. Were can i put in below the chain of rocks?Ive never ran my boat threw the locks and im worried about it ... I know there is some damn good fishin down on the river front area but i dont know whats the best route to get there.:roll_eyes: I head someone say theres a spot were u can launch off the river front but i didn't wanna take a chance unless someone els has done it .. Also ... im kinda freaked out about the google maps .... i mean it looks like barge city down there by the arch... maybe ill hang below the chain of rocks?
