A cold morning of fishing on Lake Tenkiller

SEE, YOU CAN STILL CATCH FISH IN THE WINTERTIME! — Jason Wickware poses with this three-pound largemouth bass he caught just before dawn Saturday morning at Lake Tenkiller on a fishing trip with Outdoors with Jody Ray Columnist Jody Ray Adams. Photo by Jody Adams

I went fishing with Jason Wickware Saturday morning at Lake Tenkiller. When we got there, it was cloudy, 47 degrees and the wind was blowing out of the east at 13 mph. When the wind blows out of the east, fish bite least!
I knew it was going to be tough fishing, but Jason caught a three-pound largemouth, and I pulled in a little smallmouth two casts later. But that would prove to be all we'd catch for a while.
The rain came down hard, along with some very strong winds. We caught only three more fish the rest of the day. Any day of fishing is better than working!
You can catch fish in wintertime weather conditions, and sometimes a few big ones!
I can't wait to go fishing again. The next trip will be to Broken Bow Lake.
Keith Griffith was asked if he fished all year, and why he doesn't go hunting. He replied, “Hunting is for people who don't know how to fish!”
Keith is just one of a kind, just like “Cousin Eddie.”
