Cold front ?

Recommended Posts

I am planning a trip to a lake that is a 3 hour drive from where I live, and it looks like there will be a cold front coming in the day before I get there. The temps have been in the high 70's and low 80's and the forecast is for a high of 50 with rain all day, and the next day its suppose to be in the low 70's partly cloudy with wind coming out of the West 10 to 15 mph. My questions are,where would you go first, what lure or technique would you start with? Water is stained to muddy, water temp in the 50's, might be able to find some muddy water in the low 60's.

I love being out on the water no matter what, but sure would be nice to catch and take pics of a couple of fish, for the 6 hour round trip.

Thanks for any info.

Ive been having the same thing happen. Its a little frusturating because its cloudy/ rainy and the waters muddy so the fish are not very tight to cover but there not extremly willing to chase a bait.Ive been catching them a little on jerk baits.

Not sure where you are located.. But if you can find the water temps in the range of 57-64 i would throw a Crank bait. I was in a tourney last weeks and the water temp was consistently 61 degrees. I threw cranks all day landed my limit and got 4th. I was using a 8-12Ft dark colored crank. But casting right up on the shore. keeping it right on the bottom. They would either hit it right away and i would catch the prespawn males or about 15yards off the bank i would catch the fat females.

Catch A HOG!!

Fish only those structures that you know attract fish for one thing. Focus on slow and even finesse type presentations. Cast many times to a spot. Take your time and you will catch something. One important think; when the fish are stressed (post cold front, high pressure) and you believe they are holding down & close, the approach to your spot becomes extremely critical. Slow down before you get close and sneak in quietly.

Try a jig & pig, Senko, drop shot or shakey head. Good luck!
