    When you say 'Wheeler Dam' I assume that means reasonably close to the dam where there's a considerable current. I like jugging such areas because I do a lot better than when I try jugging calm waters in a lake. I try to make my juglines as long as possible without hanging up too often, and freefloat them down the current. I have droppers every 36" on my juglines so that I can have baits ranging from near the bottom to near the top, and all in between. Best bait is skipjack or fresh cut shad.
