cold front

Hey I was wondering does the start of a cold front bother the fish to where they wouldn't bite too much for a day or two? I've heard this from other fishermen that the frequent change of temperature could cause the fish to not be as active. I've never fished right at the beginning of a cold front before to even know if this is true. I have fished about two days into a cold front before and the fishing was usually excellent in deep holes. I'm thinking about going out to Golden Meadow tomorrow to catch some specs, reds, and sheepshead while I finally have the time off from work. I would love for my hour and a half drive to be at least a little bit worth my while. Any info could be useful...

Yea I looked at the forecast for tomorrow and it predicts only 6 mph winds coming out of the west so maybe it will die down tonite. I'll be on the bank behind a levee so hopefully the wind won't be that bad.

catch 22
its a catch 22 there CM because you NEED a breeze to hold off the swarms of gnats yet you dont want to get blown away either.

the best conditions you are looking for is in the 8-12 mph wind range and its usually good fishing conditions and just enough breeze to keep the gnats in the grass and not swarming you.

good luck to you, unfortunately if you find a place out of the wind at this time of year the gnats are usually so thick you have to run away.

I have heard all of that BS all my life and used to live by it. In the summer when fish are outside I watch the weather closer but, winter I just go any time I can! I have had very good catches on those days that are supposed to be bad and bad catches in perfect conditions?

Its usally not as good for most, because a lot of areas are open and too rough to fish and it dirties up the water, but some people still find fish, but its usally in protected areas with no current and cleaner water. couple days after front, water cleares everywhere, wind comes down, betteres your chances.
