Default Magnolia river going into weeks,,

Guys, when you are going from Magnolia river going into weeks bay, where is the channel ? The river makes a right-hand turn then widens out, where do you go after it widens out before the white poles?

The few times I have been there we followed the white poles on the right side...it is very shallow to the left. I was in a 19ft. Carolina Skiff.

When you are leaving magnolia river heading into weeks bay, do not hug the bank on the right. It gets shallow near there. I always stay in the middle and head straight out to the white poles that you are talking about and then make my right turn to go back to Fish river. If you want to head out toward Mobile bay then take a left at the white poles and drive toward the mouth. Its actually pretty deep on the east bank or the bank across from big mouth / pelican point. I have never ran aground over there. The west bank of weeks bay is shallow.

thanks for info, there are a couple of markers where it widens out going into weeks area but can't make them out if they are marking a channel. I was on the southern side (heading west) of the wide part of the creek & it was 1.8 feet deep. I guess there was once a riverbed. Has to be a channel of some kind. I see large boats tied up in Magnolia
