4 Bass Fishing Hacks for Spring Cold Fronts By Walker Smith


It seems to happen around this time every year. Just when you think it’s finally warming up for good, Mother Nature pulls a 180 and kicks you, and your fishing patterns, right in the teeth. What was working yesterday all of the sudden won’t even produce a single bite and you’re right back at square one.

These spring cold fronts can quickly change the way you need to be fishing. I’ve been battling several of them lately and I’ll be honest – they’re about to drive me up the wall. One day I’ll catch 50 bass and the next day, after the water temperature drops four degrees over night, I can’t buy a bite for hours.

But the good news about these cold fronts is that they’ve given me an opportunity to dig in and truly experiment in tough conditions. I sat down last night and made a list of everything I’ve been doing to keep catching bass in all of this unpredictable weather. I thought I’d share it with everyone. Fishing is a humbling sport and sometimes the slightest adjustment can produce the biggest results.
