Other than the cold and maybe some ice on the decks, what other things could go wrong when fishing when its below freezing? I have outboards.
Ditto Joe! Rockfish ain't worth losing your life!Rod guides freezing, frozen spray on the windshield, ice clogging deck drains, ice on the deck, ice all over affecting handling, etc. If you're prepared to deal with it great. As for myself when temps are forecast to stay below freezing I find something else to do.
