    Actual water temp is the key. Doesnt matter so much if the fishermans cold as long as the fish are warm..LOL If your a bank fisher just buy a little thermometer and hang iut under a bobber and cast it around the area your fishing. That will give you an Idea what your dealing with. Just keep in mind the colder the water when you get below around 62-65 the less agressive the cats are so you've got to put bait right in their face. Fish have to eat and bigger fish have to eat more often when its cold than small ones do.

    Went a couple weeks ago, water temp was in mid sixties and caught an 8lb flat on live eel. Yesterday morning on my way to hunt the water temp was only 56 so I guess the flathead season is just about done, but it should be great for blues.

    We caught 60 blues with a few channels mixed in Sunday. All fish caught in 2 to 6 ft. water around the brush.

    Winter is my favorite time to fish. I always catch bigger fish in the cold and don't have to fight the crowds. I love the winter time
