Re: Heavy cold front

Ok so as far as Delacroix area goes the fish have migrated to the inside waters a few months ago in large numbers. The difference now with this cold front that has recently pushed through is the fish will be stacked up in deeper holes and waterways such as oak river. You will want to fish deep holes or drop offs where the fish tend to concentrate when the water temperature dips. In my opinion you will do better to go out later in the day if not even fish more of the afternoon rather than morning, so that you give the water time to warm up some, as far as bait and technique I usually use a matrix shad in either lemon drop or shrimp creole color and a heavy jig head like 3/8 ounce or even a 1/2 ounce depending on current and water depth. Cast out and bump the bait back to you slowly wait to feel a little bump and bam set the hook. Hope this helps and you smash them good luck.
