    I`m done. Went for the last time yesterday. Actually I was on the way home from town with a new rifle so I fished for a few hrs. Only caught one cat and he was cold as ice. No more fishing until the ice gets 4". Was a good summer tho.

    I cleaned out the fishing car, and hung up my rods last week.

    Just going to be too cold from here on out for me. Been real slow getting anything to bite also.

    It has been way to odd of a year for me to call it this early. Last week we landed 269lbs in 2 days... it isn't over yet...

    You guys could always do what the birds do! Make a run South. We'll be catching them all year down here!! Come on, y'all. I'll treat y'all to a fish fry and redneck shindig while you're here!

    I can fish all year down here in Texas! But, a couple buddies do stop fishing this time of year due to hunting season. I will admit I do go less often when it cold down here. Alteast cold for down here we do not get any snow! maybe ice I am in shorts outside on christmas day most years.

    i was fishing for cats on the wapsi and didnt catch a thing for three hours
    i think the mississippi may be a better choice but it may just be this time of the year

    I couldn't catch them last fall, can't catch them this fall. Big nasty storm coming this week, I had a pretty good year, it's November, I'm hanging it up, start planning for next year. LOOK OUT FISH!
