It might be colder on the beach today than it was in October, but they're out there trying to beat that 56 pound striped bass catch.

Cash awards have already been won by anglers in the daily and weekly segments of the competition, but the grand prize will have to wait until December 5th.

Laura, looking at the person on the beach all bundled up I think that Ice Fishing may actually be warmer snug in a shelter out of the elements.

Fisherman have a passion for their fishing and a little cool weather won't stop them.

Good luck and success.

Steve - It is a bit chilly!

Bob - I always wanted to try ice fishing in a little cabin on the ice!

William - We're waiting for you to come get that 60 lb striper we all know is out there!

Lou - That's the truth, like the mail...through rain, sleet, snow and hail!

I loved surf fishing at South Padre Island when I lived in South Texas.  Now it's Kentucky Lake, river, and pond fishing.

I'll get up at 4:00 AM to go fishing.  But those people that got up at 4:00 AM (or earlier) to go shopping on Black Friday are just nuts.
