The weather may be cold, but that doesn’t mean the fishing can’t be hot.
Chris Whitworth of Oklahoma City landed this 31-pound striper Saturday on the Red River while fishing with guide Steve Barnes.
“We were actually fishing for big blue cats but, hey, stripers eat shad too,” Barnes said. “We were using Mustad circle hooks so the fish was released unharmed.”
Funny thing. The last time I went striper fishing in the winter on the Red River I caught a big blue cat, 45-pounds. I guess something is always biting on the Red.
