Default R.D. Bailey West Virginia report

R.D. BAILEY
During the winter season, fish are still active but have a slower metabolism, so anglers should
fish slowly and methodically. Spotted bass are hitting plastic jigs in crawfish
colors. The spotted bass will be found along the rocky drops with points
another good spot to try. Walleye are starting to be creeled by local anglers.
Best places to try are along the shallow clay flats either early or late. As
the year progresses, the walleyes will be moving up the river to begin spawning.
Best baits are jigs tipped with minnows or nightcrawlers. With any warm,
stable weather, fish may become more active. Try to pick a day that is bright
and sunny which warms up areas of the lake, especially dark or mud banks. A few
degrees can make a difference!
