    This was my 1st time at 13.Put in below the damn.1st throw of the cast net I caught a snake on the boat ramp,never done that before:crazy:.Caught some shad in behind the locks,it took about 20 min to catch maybe 25 or so.Threw out 17 juggs close to the gates,water was rough and runnin.Caught a 4lb blue right off,but it was the only one of the day.I floated the juggs down the river for 5 miles.My juggs are set up to fish below Webbers Falls with 12ft of string,the water is 14ft deep there.Well the water runs around 28ft below L&D13,so I was fishing way to shallow I geuss.I'll try again when the river goes down,or try some back waters off the river.
