I'd rather fish in the summer when the water is 65 degrees throwing a Big Plug looking for that one Sow Trout for CPR...if that could be possible.

New job has me coming in at 6:30, so winter time fishing will be a few mornings when it's "right" and weekends. At least I can fish after work in the summer.

I love winter time fishing.
1.You can sleep in.
2.Bays are not near as crowded.
3.Folks aren't anchored up as often.
4.Fish are bigger and fight harder.
5.Break out the waders.
I fish year around but November to February are my favorite months.

Cold, calm, and foggy

I'm with you Dave - cold, calm, foggy, drizzle with a slow walking Super Spook or Spook Jr. Keeps me on the edge of my 3rd Leg in shin deep mud and shell all day waiting for that big sow to slurp up my topwater (or Corky Fatboy or Super Devil). I think I'll go get in the pool and make sure my waders aren't leaking - the neighbors will think I'm crazy!!!

both here also,, I like to fish, ride in bote, etc. I like to catch fish and have fun with buds.(summer) but I also like that hammer down trout that roll on top and gets the blood boiling! (Cooler months)

Plus when its cold you can have a blast and cast day!

One more...

In the winter the duck hunters are hunting and are off the trout holes.

Redfish is a by-catch for me in the winter, but in the summer the duck ponds open up a whole new game.

I prefer to fish in winter. Far less yahoos and shoreline burners on the water. I also catch more fish in greater numbers. My winter fishing is almost exclusively out of Goose Island State Park - many times we do not even head out till afternoon when day warms up.,

In the summer, I like the winter. In the winter, I like the summer.

But considering I caught my biggest trout yet (29) just a few days ago, I am happy with summer at the moment. Nothing like being out in the pre-dawn glow knowing its going to be way too hot in a few hours.

I just love to fish. I'm still fairly young and will grind it out all day Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall if need be.

I do love the anticipation of "how big will she be" while slowly working a Corky Fatboy through a proven big trout area. That gets my blood pumping pretty good.

Kaylin,

If you would have caught that fish in February, It would have weighed as much as 1-2 lbs. more.That was a beautiful catch. Those BOGA's are very accurate as far as the weight shows. Keep at em.....

I fish year round so I am going to have to say that I like both as well, though I probably fish a little less in the fall and winter because I am a bow hunter and absolutely love being in the woods during the fall.
