    The deepest I've caught em is 128 feet of water in a resevoir in SC.This lake does not stratify because of fluctuating water so they can go as deep as they want.You get about three fights out of em before you get em to the boat.

    Probably 30-40 feet at my local fishing hole. I need to switch to more weight so I can hit the 60 foot sections of the river and maybe land something bigger.
     
  7. Bhamroadrunner, is this on the Warrior? Not to doubt your word but I pretty much know the river from the dam (Lock 17/Bankhead Dam) up river to the split and up the little river to the steam plant.
    The deepest hole I know of on the little river is a 50' hole direcdtly in front of Maxine slough. The deepest down river is one near Jackson's camp that is just over 100'. In most places the river runs 20'-30' foot with holes in the 30' range. It runs deeper as you get near the dam.

    WoW, The lake I fish is maybe 20' at its deepest. We have our best luck in the shallows about 3-7'. But our biggest was only a 27 lbr. The lake record set last yr was a 67 lbr.
