any motor with a prop on it is going to take some bad bumps as the area is very rocky -you have to run up and over a dam that is made of crushed boulders to get to it .there is about a 3 foot waterfall above that that should only even think of being attempted by the best skippers. many people have bit it here(in boats as big as 21 feet!).if you know your boat and think it can handle it- go for it! let us know how you do and good fishing!you may wish to consider a guide trip for you first look and then go back yourself if you wish.check out atlanta striper guide service at i would be happy to take there for a look
