    I've heard stories of a deep channel I beleive is on the back side of clinton. They say you come into bout1 to 1 1\2 foot then all of a sudden its like 30 to 50 foot deep heard different depths but anyway they say that you can catch some big channel and flats outta it. Does anyone kow if there is any truth to this?:confused2:

    Went out there saturday evening for an hour and a half. Saw a nice sized cat roll just in front of where I was standing. No takers though. I was fishing around fallen trees. Had two poles with live bluegill on them, one with a slip bobber and the other on the bottom. The other pole had shrimp on it, fished under a slip bobber. There was a nice school of shad in there as well. Everytime I've gone down there shad have been schooled up....going to wait until they get a little bigger before I throw the net at them. Hopefully they'll continue to hang out there.

    Rock creek boat ramp is a hell of a drive down a horrible rocky/gravel/sad excuse of a road but once you get out into the channel its more than 20 ft at least. decent... ALOT of fish, only caught a drum on worms in the 3 hours i was there, but i have no depth finder or nothing, was just kinda testing boat out really...:tounge_out:
