West Virginia report from Chase Gibson
With a 3-day weekend full of rain, extreme wind, a little bit of sunshine, and muskies!
The water clarity is perfect slightly dirty but still good enough to see. Water temperatures are ranging from 51-55
degrees. The shallow bays and main lake coves are holding bait and fish. Both Trolling and casting the wind blown banks are key. Despite the difficulty in boat positioning it can pay off in hungry muskies. The wind transitions baitfish (shad) to these areas and creates a congregated areas for muskies to feed.We contacted fish in 5-12 ft of water. Fishing these areas throughly paid off with two nice fish and contacted several more for my clients. Understanding and not being afraid to fish the wind can pay off big in the spring. Until next time….
