Always good to get out for the first time of the year.

yes sir, feels like the last day of high school all over again every time. replaced my lost lures and bought some new toys to test out, plus a bag of gulp! alive! minnows, the bass in these lakes round here love those suckers if you present em right. Cant wait for some consistently warmer weather...

I missed this one! Looks like fun but then again any bass fishing does to me :eyebrow:
I dont know what WV waters temps are like compared to ours but you found some bass.
If I was losing rapalas that would tell me that there's a lot of structure in the water. Of course you can probably SEE the snags your fishing lol.
Tie on a 1/4 weedless skirted jig and swim it through the brush and weed lines. You'll rip em out there :biggrin:

Looks like fun!
I found a couple today as well. Our water is still pretty bone chilling, but it's warming fast.

Nice - things are warming up around here.  Hopefully some of the rivers will come down in volume and clean up a little.
