Winter Trout in West Virginia!

My family and I went to visit some family in West Virginia for New Year's eve and I got the chance on January 1 to start the new year right!  I managed to slip in some rod and reel time in the small lake in the neighborhood we were visiting.
I ended up choosing to fish with a drop shot rig using a small number 2 fishing hook, a 3/8 oz sinker and a small green finesse style worm.  The weather was COLD for me, about 35 degrees and breezy.  I managed to get 3 bites and landed two nice rainbow trout, the largest being about 17" long!
All in a great trip spending time with family and a little fishing to start 2016!
