    Good question. I don't have an answer, hoping someone else will chime in. I like fishing incoming storm fronts better then any other time, but we often get cold fronts with out the storm.

    The way I would attack a cold front would be to fish the deeper holes at the beginning of the front. The deeper water will provide the fish with more stable pressure and temp then the upper part of the water column. I would also expect the shad to move out and down as well. I may be completely wrong here, just my thoughts. Like always, if that pattern doesn't work, try a different pattern.

    The bigger the fish and the deeper, the less effect a change in weather will have. It does have an effect sometimes they just will not bite. Over the weekend we had a nasty cold front and the local tournament record was set so make your own conclusion. It jsut depends. On what, if you figure that out let me know.
