Winter fishing

Discussion in 'LOCAL ARKANSAS TALK' started by PTDixieGal, Oct 27, 2008.

Do you fish for catfish or any other fish during the winter months?

  1. And freeze my backside off? NO WAY!

  2. I've thought about it.

  3. Sometimes I do.

  4. YEAH MAN!

    I agree with ya Chris on that one but have been out there a few times when lightning was around and we got out of there. Nothing like fishing when it's cold, fingers numb and toes frozen but the fish don't know that. Save on ice, too. But we have caught some of our biggest fish in the cold.

    I have had back surgery and problems with that for years..... When it gets deadly cold outside the weather forces me in.....
    I hate it being a bear and hybernating but the pain makes it too hard to do.
    I tend to fish till it gets really cold outside...Then I spring clean my house in dead of winter and get ready for April

    December, January and Febuary are my favorite 3 months to fish. We seem to catch numbers as well as our bigger fish during those 3 months.

    You don't see it posted to much but winter is a real good time to catch channels in small lakes and ponds just find the deepest water you can for thats where they will be:smile2:

    We have caught a lot of our big fish in the winter months, so yes Mam I fish the cold weather too. During the winter catfish don't have to eat as much because their metabolism slows down, but they do still have to eat, so get out there and catch them.

    Winter time means big blues to me. Not just catfish either, Lets see here, Blue fingers, blue toes, blue nose............:smile2: I dont like the cold either makes me hurt worse, but a couple those heat packs on the back in the kidney area helps alot.
