fishing condition question

Recommended Posts

Well in ny last week it was like 80-90 degrees every day, sun shining no wind and my friends got caught up swimming and hanging out every day... Then we were like all right we'll go tommorow... Now it turns out its windy and colder?? Should I just wait to it gets nicer or fish now?

What methods or baits should i use when a cold front comes or its gets to windy

Rule #1

Fish everyday that you can, but only days ending in a "y".

Rule #2

When in doubt, fish a soft plastic, deep and slow.

I agree big time with rule #1!!!!!!  The only way to become a better fisherman is fish every day not just days when the conditions are perfect.  Try and learn something everytime you go out.

After a cold front blows through the fish will be hugging the cover. It usually pays to downsize your baits and work them slower to get the bites.

Try to find places that are shielded from the wind and flip in the cover. Places like this are less effected by the wind. You can also Carolina rig, crank, or spinnerbait the windy areas if you can't get out of the wind. Cold fronts effect fish dramatically at times and other days it don't effect them as much. You will never know until you go.

Im in Ct. andf i fished everyday this past week from hot to cold and I readjusted to the front and i tossed topwater in the heat and shallow crankbaits after the cold and caught bass right thru the heat & cold, the rain and the only thing i adjusted was my presentation. We learn how to fish it if we pay attention to the fish. The very first day of the cold I was throwing cranks and i just put new line on my reel so i had one tangle, as I fixed it while my lure was in the water as soon as i started up again it took it so that told me a stop and go presentation was the key and it has worked everyday since. But as i slow reel i twitch it too besides adding a pause. Sometimes i just stop and deadstick it too. When the weather changes its all about your presentation its a matter of how fast or slow they want it moving. BB

I fish thru it all the heat, the cold, the rain and even the snow too its never a time not to go fishing so stop wishing and go fishing!!! I just need a defroster for the eyes on my rod??? HINT: The hogs still have the feed bag on even in November too!!! Try a fluke and be ready!!! And you think the lake is sleeping??  Its tough to go deer hunting when its still great fishing.

All I got to say is....U don't know it till u throw. If it was me, the 3/8 oz black and blue jig would be gettin wet. In the deepest and uglyiest cover I could find. Fish it slower than slow, when he bumps, BREAK HIS JAW!!!!!
