    ive seen it lots of times from riding the thunderbolt but never fished it, it looks like a pretty good spot. lots of current, looks like some structure around the edges and probally some deep holes

    yea ive heard alot of bad things about not wanting to leave your truck at the boat ramp because theres "bad characters" that hang out at this braddock ramp.. and when you fish there "they mooch" anything they can off of you..
