I've been getting some 2-3 #ers. Nothing huge, but they have been biting in the morning. As of a few weeks ago at least. Caught several on spinners and jigs. Not a ton, but catching some. I'm a newb though and don't know what the heck I'm doing yet so I'm sure most would do better.

Honey hole did a show last year and he did ok but I think it was more for good PR to get more fisherman back out there. Been a few times the last few winters and more often than not its been a blank for me. Ramp parking lots been pretty empty too every time I've went so thats telling, but I always see guys netting tilapia at the discharge doing good.

Went a few times last winter. Best trip caught over 20 fish with a couple over 4 and one right at 6. Trust me. It'll get better.

YO -p- you know the answer to that! TPWD says every week that they have quit stocking after the last kill. Although we fly guys wanted a redfish fix, I hear the bass have come back around (probably thanks to the redfish disappearing). Colder? There's no cooling going on there (at the plant) as far as I know. Coal sucks, and it's almost a fossil now.
