    Was thinkin bout goin out and hit the river for some flats this weekend but there is a cold front coming in! Just wondering what you guys thought about fishing a cold front. The temp is supposed to drop down into the lower 40 degree range and it was 85 yesterday. Can you still catch flats in the middle of a cold front?

    yes u can catch big flatheads in cold fronts.fish as tight to cover as possible and move your bait around alot,if u can get ur bait in the right place they will still bite.

    you can still catch them , but the colder it gets the harder it is to catch them, thats with all catfish though

    Don't know if it holds for flats but I have had great results with Blues ahead of the front and quit like a switch was turned off with frontal passage.

    I would Ditto this post. During cold front the fish will move tight to cover and may move out and down in the water chain. Take your time and search. The fish is going to feed.
