I am going to the Mississippi River this weekend to Lock & Dam 13. Any pointers? Is it usually packed on July 4th weekend? I have been backtracking on some posts and I'm assuming that pool 13 is the same as lock & dam 13.
Caught a few drums (8-10 inches), 1 channel cat (12 inches) and 1 flathead (14 inches).
Most remarkable catch was the flathead. The flathead broke someone else's mono line at some point in time and my g/f somehow tangled her line with that broken mono line and ended up reeling the flathead in without actually hooking the fish. Odd and spectacular. No one was catching anything amazing. Most catches were drums around 8-12 inches.
