    Spent the 2nd and 3rd bank fishing the Kanawha. On the night of the second we fished on the Kanawha city side of the river and caught only two; a nice size channel and about a 6-10 lb flathead. On the night of the 3rd we fished below the Winfield Locks. Only caught one, the big ones just weren't hitting. We used cut shad and live bluegills both nights and the action was just slow. We where told that on the night of the 2nd a 25 + pounder was caught at the Winfield locks.

    Just wanted to give everyone an update on how the fishing was. Maybe things will heat up soon.

    I fish the kanawha and the bite has been slow all year nothing like last year. I dont know what is going on this yr but it has to pickup sometime or later looks like later. The only thing we caught this yr out of the is 1 flattie and a boat load of channels. By this time last yr we had 1 over 30, several 20's and a bunch under 20.
