How Will Cold Temp. Tonight Affect Fishing Tomarrow Afternoon?

Recommended Posts

Planning on fishing both saturday and sunday this weekend. With the temperature getting very low tonight will this drastically affect fishing and if so what adjustments would you suggest? I have been doing very well on topwater and will start topwater no matter what...

I am also planning on going out tomorrow and sunday. I'll probably start out with a frog, but depending on how that goes I'll end up fishing as deep as I can get with some jigs, craws, or flukes.

I have been having good luck lately with the 5" Disco Violet Zoom Super Flukes, just fishing them slow and fairly deep.

I've never really used spinnerbaits all that much maybe I'll throw one on tomorrow for the hell of it if nothing is biting haha.

Same here... I honestly haven't fished a spinnerbait more than 30 minutes but some people I have been talking to have been killing them... Atleast they were a week or so ago.

Slow roll a white spinner bait along the bottom. Also a Rat-L-Trap worked along the bottom slowly is working very well rigth now. In other words, stay low and slow.....

Some great posts here. My guess is that the bite will be slow given the fact that we just had a front roll thru. By Monday the bite should pick up. Get out those slow, crawling baits and look for whatever vegetation is left that is adjacent to deeper water and see if you can't get down in a channel. I seriously doubt they will be in shallow, but hey, it'll be worth a try maybe later in the day.

Good luck guys!

Well the jig worked wonders. I was only fishing in maybe 5-6' of water but I ended up catching 4 bass all around 2-1/2 lbs. Not big ones, but hey, they're fish.

Used a 1/4 oz Black/Blue Strike King jig with a Green Pumpkin Sapphire Rage Craw as the trailer.

Hope you're having some luck!

I haven't been striper fishing in so long! Good luck though! From what I hear, they are still slamming them on the east end of the Canal.

I caught my PB this year at 39" 27 lbs... We were trolling live mackeral on my dad's friend's boat. My dad's PB is 47.5" 38 lbs... When we surf cast we enjoy using crystal minnows by

Yo-Zuri... Apparently some 40lbs lunkers were caught in maine recently so we will probably drive along the beach take some casts...then drive take some casts... and keep doing that until we are either freezing, out-fished, or just tired of catching them (WHICH WILL NEVER HAPPEN, YOU CAN NEVER CATCH TO MANY STRIPERS!) lol...
