In Alabama it's pretty much possible to collect fish year-round. It can
freeze here in the northern part of the state (Huntsville) but most winters
don't have a sustained freeze, i.e. the daily temperature
will usually climb above freezing and the sun remains surprisingly warm.
This is very different from the Boston area; in ND & MN I'm sure it's out 'n
out brutal.
