The heated pipeline running across Fork is going cold. The Eustace, TX gas plant is being idled, so no more sulfur recovery and no need to heat that pipe to keep product flowing. That's been a great spot to fish for years. Especially in winter when the warmer water around that pipe attracted lots of fish of all species. Just an FYI for those who love to fish it, like me.

I was thinking the same thing. I notice Fouzman didn't us about this till it was gone LOL

This also shows how many places on most lakes we still do not know everything about even with our big boats and graphs. This is why some are always catching fish.

Need to add thermal imaging to my depth finder to compliment the down scan I guess. Maybe I could patent it and make a fortune.

I am guessing their is still a ton I don't know about Fork. That's also part of the fun finding this stuff and where the fish are on theses places. The opening is just south of the hump next to the creek. LOL

Fouz, anybody know where the bobtail truck is sunk at. I will say it has been there since the lake opened. I will give you one hint.

I've fished that knowing it was a pipeline but never knew it was heated. Well back to mustang creek I guess.

I'd be lying if I said I knew where it was, CJ. I know where a couple different ponds, pools and roadbeds are with the Hurley family's name attached to them. Fish them often in the summer. But don't know precisely where that old bobtail is.

Still though, finding these old sites is fascinating. Especially with the side imaging technology.
