Just out of GALTS there is now an Island that is very easy to see. The [glow=red,2,300][/glow]DANGER is there are BIG STUMPS 12" to 24" below the surface extending far from the island especially on the east side. You might thing you are safe running full tilt between the island and the east bank but you are not. The stumps extend at least 50 feet from the island, maybe more.
Please please be careful.

That long point is 1.5 feet deep between the tree that you saw and the hump/point. If you are running on the pad stay straight toward the wall (if you are coming from allatoona landing ) then make your left turn about 75 to 100 yards from the wall and you will be O.K. . I did a lot of exploring of that area today just before dark all the way to dark to keep some one from hitting it on the way back in . ( with my lights on!!!!!)
If you are not living on the edge , your taking up to much space!!!!!
"Clear creek right now is DANGEROUS!! That lsland at the mouth of clear creek if you are looking at it from the main lake. If you go to the left of that lsland INTO clear creek you got 2ft deep tops between that shoal and the island"
Another place to watch out for is in McCaskey creek. As you past the big hump with the 2 reef markers and the creek bends back to the right, stay well away from the that right hand bank. Just as you pass 2 boat houses on the right in that little cove, you'll see a point and much of it is now exposed but MOST of it isn't. There many big stumps in 3 feet of water way out on the end of that point.
I didn't hit anything as I was fishing the rock pile working my way out to the end of the point, only the point wouldn't end. The further out I went the shallower it got .....LOL

When I went out last Thursday the "Welchel Hump" in Iron Hill was out of water by about 3 inches so I'm betting that by now it is just below the surface. Right around where it was when I hit it. Be careful and swing wide.
