I ventured out, checking the last spots I had caught fish, close to home, was quite surprised, that those spots no longer held fish.  I did not see any fish on the shallow points I had hit, rather most fish were deep, 40 to 45 feet deep. I did not fish deep, and it appears I will have to fish deep, dead sticking, or slow drifts, to get fish.  I will not completely abandon my search at the points, but I figure my next trip this week will be, the old winter pattern of heading way west, or way north.  There are lots of fish around, but I feel a person is going to have to stay busy, keep on top of the fish locations, to be successful each day.  I hope everyone had a good holiday season, and ready for the new year, as although I hate fishing in the cold, I love fishing, and if it cold, then I will do it.   The problem with some fishermen, we cant stand being out in the old, but we hurt more when someone out catching fish, and we get lazy, and miss our chance.   Good fishing this season.  I enjoy this site, and all your fishing reports.   JD .

Good report and advice. I used to do the cold much better as a younger man than I do approaching 80. I keep looking at my boat saying to myself " I need to take you out"---, but it is not happening.

Come on guys, old and cold is an excuse.  I'm old and on a blood thinner so I'm cold all the time.  Since I don't have a boat I use a guide.  I go every June and Nov..  My guide usually launches at 6:00 AM and Nov. is cold.  You just wear the proper clothing, layer, long johns, and off you go.

Kahuna, that's true to an extent.  32 degrees in Nov. is 32 degrees in Jan unless the wind is blowing.  When the wind is blowing, and the "feels like" drops into the mid 20's, then it's cold, real cold.

J.D., I took the boat out week and got skunked again. Marking lots of bait and fish down deep. The shallow spots look like a desert on the scope. My tackle box looked like a tornado had hit it when I get home. I wish that I had a "Kitchen Sink" to throw at them. I spent yesterday wrapping a heavy tarp around my outboard and put a 100 watt light bulb under it. The Big box stores were out of heat tape. I hope my lower unit does not freeze!
After that I went to a stock tank and hauled in 2 nice 2 pounder LM. that was fun. Didn't freeze "My" Lower Unit off and did not get "Skunked" and didn't burn a lot of gas. They both hit on a single blade white H&H. I think I'll stay off of the lake until this cold snap ends. Really not Fun when the spray is freezing on the windshield and my mustache.
Good Luck to you brave ones that just can't stay in the house and put your tackle back in working order. 20151121_124801.jpg

I appreciate the responses and everyone is different regarding the cold. I agree you just need to put more clothes on. When I have to put my ole hound dog who wears a coat year round, in the shop by a heater, then it’s cold. I just stay in front of my fireplace and post pictures I should have posted back when it was warm and fishing was dynamite. My wife takes care of my website (www.striperfish.com) but if I don’t give her pictures or a fishing report she don’t know. I finally catch on when someone calls and say “you still in business”. Anyway I have trips lined up for February, on, so will try to get some reports and pictures posted. Until then warmth for this woose. “JD.” CrossCreek Guide Service. - 903-786-3981
