This full on winter nonsense needs to stop! I need to go fishing! And now they are calling for 3 to 6 inches of snow Sunday into Monday single digit lows and wind chills of 10 below zero! Did somebody move Texas to North Dakota?!

Looks like it’s gonna be nasty until next weekend. Gonna be a considerable Shad kill I’m guessing which will probably screw things up for a while. Sure wish some of these trophy catfish guides still posted their trip reports and lake conditions so we could get a good idea of what the lakes and fish are doing during and after this cold snap. I’ve been planning to drag my boat to Twok after the cold passes but now I’m worried I will be floating around like an idiot if the fish are all stuffed full of Threadfin...


There is a fine line between fishing and floating around like an idiot!!

I've been watching the Texas weather from Alabama. My home town of Lubbock predicts -3 as the low on Sunday.

Shad kill is exactly what I'm afraid of on my particular big fish lake. It doesn't have any really deep spots, ( about 22-23 foot max right now) so I'm hoping the massive numbers will help them live. Water temp was 49.2 to 50.1 a couple weeks ago.

The fishing fever hit me last week. I braved the chill and paddled the canoe to a nearby cove. My fever soon broke as those hungry blues devoured my marinated chicken breast. I caught about twenty cats, keeping fifteen for the freezer. I'll fry some up tonight and fantasize about the next fishing trip. I expect the fever will return soon because my new trolling motor will be delivered tomorrow. I hope spring time comes soon.

Your threadfin are about to get wiped out on that little shallow lake you fish Z. Prepare to see millions of threads doing the dreaded dart of death real soon.

They'll all be in the bellies of catfish by the time I get back out there. LOL

I don't mind the cold. It's the 20 or more mph wind I can't stand. I got a Pontoon boat and can't put enough drift socks out to get it below a half a mph.

We went to lake Waco this past weekend for that tournament and it was 20+ mph wind and we had 2 36” drift sock and kept our 16ft pontoon stable for the majority of the day. If we had a 3rd one, it would of been perfect

2 54's on mine slow it down to about .7, but, I don't recall exactly what the wind speed was the last time I was out, it was over 20. Thought really hard about going out Sunday morning to bank fish. LOL

Easterlin Sea Anchors makes a 6 foot and 10 foot sock. I think that 10 foot would slow about anything down...
