School's out tomorrow too(that makes 4 days in a row) so here's some good reading material to throw some heat on this freezing weather. Pretty much the whole US is an ice cube right now. 2 MORE inches of snow forecasted for North Texas tomorrow. Woot...

Here's a pretty cool article I found on the TFF on shad behavior in cold water. I have seen this before researching the shad kill on Texoma last year. Looks like there's gonna be another kill happening any day now, which sucks but maybe we won't have the same effects as last year's kill- shitty fishing and overall unhealthy stripers and hard to catch bass.

Here's an awesome video on grass carp effects on fisheries. These things are bad if numbers of them per acre get too high. I don"t have much knowlege on this topic, but it's interesting for sure.
