Cold-Front Strategies 
By Eric Naig

Is it just me, or does it seem like every weekend his spring we¹ve been getting pounded by cold-front weather conditions.  It¹s been nice in the middle of the week and when we can finally get out and enjoy some fishing time, the weather nails us.

I¹m all for taking advantage of fishing when I can.  I¹ll go whenever the opportunity presents itself, whether the conditions are good or not.  There¹s much to be said about that old saying that a bad day on the water is better that a good day at work.  But it¹s simple to turn a bad day on the water into a good one; you just have to catch some fish.

Catching fish under cold-front conditions means changing strategies.  You have two options.  You can either finesse a bite, or trigger a bite.

Finessing a bite means you have to scale down your hook, your bait, and even your line.  You have to slow down your approach and since you know the fish are not necessarily ripping the rod out of your hands when they bite you must concentrate on the hits you get.

Lively live bait is extremely important when you¹re trying to catch negative fish with a finesse approach.  The better shape your bait is in the better chance you will find a fish that wants to eat it.

Get on top of fish, keep the bait in front of their face, and wait them out.  Eventually a fish in a school will feel compelled to bite and if you are concentrating on the bite you will catch something.

To trigger a bite you move quickly with a lure that has some flash, makes noise, or has a wobbling action.  This could be a spinnerbait, crankbait, or spoon.

You can troll the lure down into the fish zone, or you can cast and reel it if the fish are shallower.  The objective is to bring the lure past the fish quickly and get them to react in a manner where they hit the lure.  They might be curious; they might want to just smack the lure.  Either way they wrap their mouth around the lure and you catch the fish.

Now you are wondering which technique works best when.  I use a finesse approach when the fish are bunched up in deep water, and I try to trigger bites when the fish are spread out or suspended.  During those tough bites on a cold-front situation don¹t expect a lot of bites, but work hard and stay focused and you will catch fish.
