    oh that is alot further south than i am. i am about 35 or 40min. away from the dam of lake jackson there is a boat ramp and i am really wanting to try my luck. but it is very rocky and i have a 1432 jon boat with a 5 hp and i am not to sure about it. i fish the chattahoochee alot and the water can get to ripping out there and my boat handles it good. i just hope the hooch isnt giving me false hope.:confused2:
