|Catching Cold Front Bass|
From October through April cold fronts can really make catching bass tough. The fish change their habits, feed and move less, and can be real frustrating. Try these tips to catch them when the temperature drops and you have bluebird skies.
Go deep - Bass move to deep water holding areas -
get right on top
Fish smaller baits - Bass feed less so offer them
a downsized bait
Fish tight to cover - Bass hold very tight so
flip a small bait right
Slow Down - Bass are less likely to chase a bait so fish slower
For example, if you have been catching bass by throwing a 5 inch Senko to the shallow post on docks and they are hitting it on the fall, but they quit when a cold front comes through, switch to a 3 inch Senko, drop it right beside the deepest piling on the dock and let it settle to the bottom and sit there without moving.
Bass can be caught after a cold front - just change your tactics!
