    Looks like she is gowing down; current SWIFT, lots of debris on KY side, looks cleaner on IN side. I think this is because of the Salt River cleaning out. Looks like there was ExLax poured into the Salt.. lol. I plan to clean :crazy: my house until 1500 then go down and try the bank.
    You all probably have this web site, but if not, I use this for the river levels and the predicted levels...really informative. From the National Weather Service

    Go below the map and you can select the river or lake you want info on. Includes KY and IN

    Was down on the river today fishing from the bank, saw quite a few shad close to the shore trying to stay away from the current; wanted to go over to the boat dock on the Salt, ran out of daylight. Question: I have been very succesful using circle hooks or Kahle hooks on the boat, do these work from the bank??? Had 4-5 good hits but unsuccessful in having them hook on.
