Coolant leak on passenger side

Ok so I have a pretty substanial coolant leak on the passenger side of my truck. I thought it was the lower heater hose (one that runs to the water pump) replaced that yesterday drove it around, and the leak is still there. What else might I check for? is there a freeze plus on the lower passenger side of the block that could be leaking. The leak is pretty constant and drips to form quite a large puddle. I can't seem to see where its coming from other than it is in the vacinity of the heater hose. Hose however is dry.

There is a freeze plug on that size, it's where I mounted my block heater. Should be able to see it through the wheel well, I did not even have to take off the tire to do the block heater.

Check the water bypass on the heater core.

Thanks got to look around yesterday and I noticed that there was coolant leaking from the top down to the bottom from when I replaced one of my heater hoses a few months back. Pulled off the upper raditor hose and re-adjusted the hose clamp on the heater hose and so far no more visible leak, and certainly no puddle under the truck. thanks for the tips on wear to look I will check those out too today.
