    Does anyone here fish the Kanawha River around St. Albans? I have a catfish tournament in a few weeks around there and I have never fished that part of the Kanawha. Any good spots to fish and whats the best bait around there? Thanks for any information.

    Yeah I caught a few last week at Winfield locks too. I caught them on Secret 7 dip bait. It works great. No flatheads though. Maybe this week. I hope they want some good ol' goldfish.
