Cold Front - Suspending FIsh

Recommended Posts

My partner and I have been pre-fishing for a tournament the last couple days. The lake is a deep (100+) rocky lake. Most banks are v's. The best pattern we have found so far is throwing flukes in laydowns with a bunch of limbs in them, without the limbs there seems to be no fish. But the fish we are finding aren't very big. We are headed out at about 1 today after classes for one more day to fish and were going to look for some bigger ones.

A cold front moved in last night and I was just looking for some more options to catch these fish that are suspending. We threw hard jerkbaits all day the last two and haven't had much luck. Only thing we can get a bite on is a fluke, senko, and a shad rap that has been modified to suspend. Should we stay with these baits and just continue to look for bigger fish? Stay with the laydown pattern and maybe go up river looking for bigger fish?

Water temp is 51-54.

Sworming Hornet/ Lake Fork Trophy Lures

"Live" Magic Shad.

Sounds like you are fishing the same lake i am fishing this weekend. Have you fished any transistion banks or points or staging areas on points and dropoffs where the big girls are waiting for warmer water. My opinon and i know it sounds stupid, i think the big girls and the dinks are feeding on the same size bait. I dont think lure size is all that important early in the year. If i was catching fish on a fluke i would stay with the fluke. Change up the action, fish faster or slower.Whats your water clarity? Have you came across any baitfish?

You are getting bites on fluke, senko, and a shad rap that has been modified to suspend then I would stick with those; if I were to change any thing it would be Rate of Fall.
