Fishing a Cold Front

By: admin

As many anglers know, the scourge of good fishing is a cold front. Any fish; bass, crappies, walleyes or pike, can become very difficult to catch after a cold front has passed, sometimes lying lethargic for long periods. When fishing a cold front it’s actually the not the front that causes the slow action, it’s the post-frontal conditions of cold temperatures and clear skis. However, just because they’re less active doesn’t mean they can’t be caught, we just need to change up our presentation a bit. Use smaller baits, slower retrieval speeds and search out heavier cover or dirty or stained water, where the increased light penetration won’t make as great a difference. It’s actually good that we have cold fronts, or some of us wouldn’t have an excuse for not catching anything.
