Try to get your facts straight.
The closure only pertains to a few specific deep water locations and canals. Other than that, fishing is not banned.

Possession would be unlawful, as picking up frozen fish is not considered a legal method of capture.

From TPWD Outdoor Manual:

These devices, subject to restrictions listed, may be used to take fish and other aquatic life in Texas public waters.

Game fish may be taken only by pole and line (which includes rod and reel), except as otherwise provided in this guide.
A person may fish with multiple poles or other devices, except as provided in this guide.
In fresh water, it is unlawful to fish with more than 100 hooks on all devices combined.
In fresh water, it is unlawful to take fish with a hand-operated device held underwater except that a spear or spear gun may be used to take nongame fish.
Methods and devices not listed here are not legal for use in Texas.
