    At Buster Boyd the water temp was 46.4 so I started up towards the Southfork to find warm water. I found it. In the Hot Hole it was 68 and by the bridge it was around 62. I anchored and caught 6 channels and 1 blue in the few hours I was out. The wind picked up and it felt colder on the run back to the ramp that it did on the way up at 7:30am. All fish were on cut shad and perch.

    There is something about the adventure of experiencing and surviving extreme conditions outdoors that I have always liked.

    We hit the water Friday morning and it was 12 degrees. Saturday it was around 14 when I got out. We don't get temperatures like that often here, so experiencing it and fishing it in it was an adventure. I have deer hunted many times in those temperatures and colder, but never fished in it. I guess I can check that experience off the list!!

    I will be back out the 23rd eagerly pursuing some big wintertime blues...and hopefully in some warmer weather! :smile2:

    I understand your sentiments...I hope I am getting smarter as time marches on. I too remember the days of needing to prove something to myself. I think today might be a good day to brave the elements--actively bad weather seems to hitch up the feeding bags to the blues. Those dark skies look inviting. That being said, I will wait for your report.:smile2:

    Yep... That's me. Who knows, we may have to experience these extremes just to survive one day. I want to be prepared with the knowledge of how to do it and survive.
