Cold weather snap effect on fish?

Recommended Posts

I'm from north Florida and just started bass fishing. I've been doing alright but I've been skunked last 2 trips including today. Me and a buddy put a canoe into a secluded pond in the woods that we thought would be on fire but not so much as a bite. The pond holds bluegill and bofin so I'm sure there has to be some bass in there. The only thing I can think of is we just got a hard cold snap, as far as Florida goes.

 

We threw some worms and I had a jig with frog trailer. We fished around the bank which had a nice variety of cover, lily pads, trees, grass. And I also threw into the center a couple times thinking maybe the fish went down deep because the water might be warmer.

 

Any ideas?

Cold fronts in Florida is about a kiss of death. Seems they usually go into the thickest cover they can get into and sulk. You might be able to get a few to bite punching through thick mats and shaking a bait in their face, but bites are going to be few and far between. Florida strain largemouth do not like the cold.

Thanks for the replies.

 

I was doing some reading and people were suggesting Ned Rigs for cold snaps.

 

Anyone try this?

Ned can always catch em. You'd have a tough time fishing in in vegetation though (you can swim it over grass but you'd want a slow presentation with finicky cold front bass), you'll have to find some kind of hard bottom to fish it. Lighter weight heads and fish slowwww.
