How The Pros Are Fishing The Classic

Recommended Posts

Im pretty new to fishing, and had a couple questions to how the pros are fishin up on the red river today. i know the water temp is about 58 degrees and a cold front came through last night but i was always told that when i cold front comes through, especially during prespawn and spawn, the fish go back to deeper water around ledges and points near shallow flats.. on the videos most of them are flippin jigs and shallow crankbaits up in shallow timber and grass. most are in backwaters that arent as muddy as the main river. do most fish stay in shallow and stay close to cover until theres a severe drop in water temp?

I THINK (and I'm no expert) that muddy-water fish are more cover related than depth related. I know dirty water causes fish to relate to cover, but I'm not sure what a cold front would do. These guys are fishing like you would track a bleeding deer: if you have to leave it overnight, go to the last place that you found blood and start there. These giys are starting where they last found fish, and if they dont find them there, they will start looking closeby.

yep, i think the same thing. i grew up fishing stained to muddy waters and found that even when the air temp was 42-48 degrees and the water was around the same i was still flippin and pitchin shallow cover with some great bites.
