Cold temps Saturday morning – February 16, 2019! Decided to go a round at Frisco Commons for some recently stocked Rainbow Trout. Trout derby was held last weekend; was not able to make it.
Temps were in the low 30s, had to bundle up well… layered clothing did the trick but still forgot the gloves like last weekend when we fished Rowlett..
Fished from 8:30 to 4:30, caught and released five trout. Lost several others while bringing them in, and had a lot more missed hook sets. Still lots of fun, and was able to limit out for the first time this year… woohoo!
PS: Near Deere Give Away is still in-progress… do give it a go and guess a number from 1 to 100 and post in the comments on our YouTube Channel – COAF Field Team!

Starting an impromptu live stream for some ukulele fun and fishing Q&A! Plus a Near Deere Give Away with a twist...
This round we are giving away two White Near Deere tied on 1/80oz fly jigs and one Marilyn Monroe Tenkara Fly. The extra weight of the 1/80 oz fly  jigs helps fishing deeper spots when the trout are lurking deep. And, the white color is what we had the local trout interested in last Saturday when the temps were well below freezing!
To win this round... we wrote down a number from 1 to 100 on our whiteboard.  First to guess the number and post in the comments either on this video or on our Facebook Page wins the number we wrote down wins! That is first to guess the number with a US address wins!

Addendum: One modification to the rules,
- One entry per day to guess the number. We are located in the US Central timezone. 
- We will provide comments indicating a Win, else will give a hint to the answer at least once a day.

Here is a website - http://www.iFishNews.com we maintain that is more a fishing information and news aggregator than a traditional website or blog. It has fishing info and reports from our area in North Texas and Oklahoma as well as fishing information around the USA and other parts of the world. "How We Stay Aware of Fishing Hapenings...?

Able to get a round of trout fishing at a local pond Saturday morning. Was a tough go with temps in the 30s and a slow bite.
After several hours found the pattern... a slow swing of the rod to move the Near Deere / Powerworm slowly through the water, had several bites, and then a trout struck and was on briefly before throwing the hook!
Kept at it, and managed to finally hook and land two trout. Lost the Powerworm but luckily trout kept striking the Near Deere; just kept missing the hook sets!
PS: Do check back, next Near Deere Give Away is for two White Near Deere in the 1/80oz weight and a Marilyn Monroe Tenkara Fly!
