    Hi Ron. The closest boat ramp is mhoon landing. If you're heading south on hwy 61, then turn west (right) just after Battle Arena next to Southern Motors. Stay on that road and you'll cross the levee and run directly into the river. I haven't fished that far south in a boat, but i've had the most luck upstream near Memphis by fishing the wingdykes. I try to find where the water is rushing through a break in the dyke. That usually creates a pretty deep hole. Good Luck!!!!!

    Fish the seams of the current. On the dykes that are broke, check the depths and be looking for small fish (shad,skips,etc) breaking the surface. I have found on these dykes that it may be 11-16ft all around there beside the dyke then that "scour" hole may be 21-28ft. Most of the ones that I have found are broken at least half way up the dyke towards the bank. Look also for cuts in the banks, most of these have reverse current spots. I hope this helps some!:wink:

    Hi Ron. I made a mistake about the boat ramp... I think. I went out there this past weekend and the boat ramp is not there anymore. They have turned it into a park. I didn't cruise the whole park, but the boat ramp is not where it used to be. I didn't see one at all. I definitely wanna apologize for any inconvenience I may have caused.

    Cecil, Right before you enter the park, go right like going to the old casino, the ramp is over there, not in the park.
