Im stationed here in Hampton Roads and was wondering if anyone had any tips on spots or tactics for bass in the winter.

Welcome aboard!

 

I'm on the Peninsula, we've got several places up here that are

good for bass year-around including Big Bethel, Harwood's Mill,

Newport News Park, Waller Mill Park, and more up the peninsula.

 

Others will have to chime in for the South Side as there are MANY

places there for great bass. I know of Lake Prince, but that's the

about it for me. Never fished down there.

Great having you with us and thank you for your service.

 

Mount Trashmore is not that good anymore but you can give it a try.

 

Check out the Chickahominy Lake for Ed. Allen's and Eagle's Landing. It is a short drive to these locations. Look them up on Google and then Google maps. Call and find out if Ed. Allen is renting their boats.

 

Get a copy of the 2018 or 2019 Freshwater Fishing in Virginia booklet at the BPS in Hampton or at a local Dick's Sporting Goods store. It has a list of places to fish in the Tidewater area.

 

As for what to throw, try plastics and spinnerbaits fished slow plus jigs and pigs and a swimming jig.

 

If you have the time and transportation, you can go to the Richmond Fishing Expo at Meadow Park on Route 30 in Caroline County this weekend, January 18, 19 and 20. Check it out in the Southeast Bass Fishing section of the Forum.

 

And remember to wear purple and gold and yell "Geaux Tigers" when you set the hook.

 

I used to fish the Atchafalaya with my uncle. Only remember those water moccasins. Nasty creatures. They would strike at the side of the Jon boat as we meandered around the basin.

 

Welcome to the Forum and to Virginia.
