    I understand history show the bite is off on the backside of a cold front and bite is better on the front side.

    I understand a cold front has just moved through the CC area so "IF" you were scheduling your fishing trip around this cold front how many day should you wait.

    That is an interesting article and does get the brain working. The way I look at it, any time I can be out fishing is "good" and the more knowledge I can acquire to make changes to improve my hook-up ratio is a plus. I don't care what the conditions are, if I have found some time to fish I'm going to fish.

    Amen to that JBJ!

    I went out Thursday morning after a cold front and the fish definitely were not biting. I still managed a few shorts, but much slower than usual. By Friday, they were biting again.

    I'll be out early Sunday hopefully the fisheys will be feeding!

    Caught a few bass before the sun came up this morning. A few more after 7:00am. Good old jig seemed to work best, but they still weren't feeding like I had hoped.
     
  10. I recently fished both sides of the cold front at CC. Fished the same spot, same time of night. Thursday night caught upwards of 30 crappie in about 1.5 hrs, with many being good size (the 9" size limit is beginning to pay off). Fish were very aggresive, didn't matter what type of presentation. Fished again last night (Sunday) and the crappie were less aggressive, but once I figured out the pattern (downsized) the numbers and size were still there, the bite was very light, more like just some pressure on the end of my line, but all in all, both nights were productive, just have to adapt your presentation to the conditions.
