Ultimate Lunker, welcome to the site. I recently moved to Texas from Minnesota and am enjoying fishing down here. Minnesota has excellent fishing for a very diverse fishery but there is something to be said for fishing out of a boat all year round without freezing.
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
