I cant find the hole in my bathtub pipe to put the snake in

Ive taken the part off of my bathtub that catches hair and stuff and prevents it from going down the drain, but when I insert the snake to clear the drain of blockage it wont go down any farther than 6-8 inches. Can someone please help? I really want to take a shower. No water is moving at all. I have to bail it out with a cup into the toilet to get it down.

You need to take off the overflow cover. If its got a lever you have to fish it out but it will come out with some work. Then you can run the snake down through the overflow. It is a more direct route and you don't have to make the sharp turn right after you put the snake in. If this doesn't work you might try snaking out the vent pipe from the roof. Good luck.
