I got the terrible news that a LOT of snook started floating last night in some of the canals I fish down here in Corpus Christi. Unfortunately, a lot of inshore fish were hurt all across the southeast. Looks like it'll be a strictly tarpon summer for me if the resident snook numbers took such a hit.

How have the trout fared? I have read that theTexas big trout fishery could take a huge hit after a long cold spell.I hope not,let us know.

Man.. that sux. You could hardly stand to launch the boat in MS on saturday where I normally go. There were literally hundereds of dead mullet. I'm not a biologist --which prolly explains this-- but.. I wonder why it killed so many. I thought water temp was pretty constant, or at least difficult to change rapidlyat a certain depth. I figured fish would naturally find suitable water.

Interesting about the floaters, went fishing on the 15th at Blackwater. Launched at Milton, water temp was 48-47. The further downstream we went, the colder it got.By the time we hit the Yellow river area, it was 43-42. Mucho 8" mullet either barely swimming or on the banks.

Friend went fishing in C-bay the next day, he had temp readings of 52. That's from Alaqua to the E pass. But he couldn't find trout, only reds at the pass. We lucked into trout in the colder water. Go figure....

Colder to the west????
