only in the spots that dont get a lot fo sun. i went two weekends ago after all the cold weather and found a few spots with no ice. of course there were other spots that were nearly completely frozen over.

Did you catch anything two weeks ago? What did you use?
ya me and my friend caught 11 browns in two hours. we went up to test out our new lure design prototypes. actually caught one on my second cast and got it on video! our lure is basically a different styled spoon. gold was the magic color. we've had a lot of luck in that river using kastmasters and krocodiles, brown trout and rainbow trout colors. you thinking of heading up there? id be happy to meet up with you

It's going to be nice weather for the next 3 days. Especially tomorrow. I might try the river with a Kastmaster. What size were you using?

I'm flippin' you off right now......I need to get back there. I used to fish the upper Laguna Madre all the time with swimbaits back in the mid 90's, tore those specks up more than anything.

Ok, one up from the bottom is 1/8oz. I really need an ultra light setup for that size. I'll do my best with what I have. What part of the river were you fishing?

I think this warmer weather should move some of the ice away.

honestly we've used all the sizes and have had luck with each one. i just use the 1/8oz ones because i have a light setup and that one is easiest for me to cast and control. the heavier ones just fly too far for me lol. and i fished an area that was wide and had some 2-3' deep pools. if i were you id fish the 1 mile stretch that runs by fishermans bridge. no ice there and thats where we caught a lot of ours, although i will say we never actually fished the fishermans bridge spot. im trying to give you clues without totally giving my spot away O0

Couldn't catch a thing from the river. I worked my way down river until I got to Sands Lake. I caught 6 out of there.
