Then they shouldn't be a problem. Tilapia can't survive the cold winter. Sure some might survive from year to year if they find a deep hole to make it through the winter, but for the most part, they won't make it. Plus tilapia make EXCELLENT forage for bass, so it's not really a bad thing. They reproduce often which means there will always be tiny feeder fish. or at least until the water cools off and they all kick the bucket.

Caught near marina in one throw with cast net...............Ok, lets say the water perodically coming in through pipes from the east and other places is warmer. Makes sense to me that the piped in water from where ever would be ground temp and maybe make warm spots. Also its been 40 or so years at least that these fish have been stocked or transported around with the most cold tolerant surviving if they survived. Maybe they are becoming more tolerant. Anyway I don't know if I care or not, really in Benbrook. I think I like them better than the yellow bass. When zebra mussels come maybe the water will clear again like it used to be sometime back in the 60's. I am waiting for the arapaima to show up in numbers so I can use some big old topwaters.

I think one breed of talapia can survive in 40degree water. If these things survive the big bass in Benbrook are only going to get bigger!

Just for an FYI, "The pure strain of the blue tilapia, has the greatest cold tolerance and dies at 45 °F (7 °C), while all other species of tilapia will die at a range of 52 to 62 °F (11 to 17 °C)".

Who else here remembers the winter in San Antonio when it got so cold the dead Tilapia clogged up the water pipes at the power plant and SA was without power for several days? 1987 or so.
