    I went to the locks a couple of weeks ago and fished the side by the wall where the barges go through first time I have been there every body said it was better fishing up around the bend about 200 yards up but we don't have a lantern yet ours broke and we are all to broke to replace it yet I was disappointed it was only about 5 to 8 feet deep where we where casting I caught a channels about 2pounds it was on top of the water in seconds after i hooked it they say by the wall its like 30 feet deep but the wall is farther away than it looks I would have a hard time keeping bait on and tossing it that far with my current set ups

    go about 30 ft past the wall that ends there. and fish out as far as you can throw. use a 2 oz sinker. no problem with it. staying put. going sunday like i said start at locks then end up there on the army corp side...
