    In Ok, you can fish year round. May shiver just a little, but it's still fishing. Fish the deep holes.

    I usually start to put my stuff away also about this time of year also. We have been having above average weather so I am still fishing. Caught 3 channels this past Saturday in about an hours time. They where still biting but it was getting dark and i was out there by myself so I packed it up. The more casual anglers have already packed it up so I usually find myself out there by myself. Although this past Saturday a few people where still fishing. People usually say to use cut bait this time of the year. I caught all three of mine on cut shrimp...(lol)....

    well it definatley makes it a little tougher, i use a lot larger net in deeper water, work more area's good thing my deep freeze is stocked of shad this year, im kinda lucky livin on the lake all i have to do is look out my window and see which points the wind is blowing or see where the birds are if in my sight, instead of running all over the lake
