Cliff Pace says the key to catching fish in the cold front is to slow down and look for areas that will hold the most heat. One tactic that fits this bill perfectly is flippin’. Bass suck tight to heavy cover for comfort and warmth during these cold conditions and it’s easy to see why. Fish are cold-blooded creatures and are directly affected by the environment around them so as the temp drops, their desire to expend energy and feed drops with it.
When this happens fish are more apt to eat baits they don’t have to work for. Cliff will often choose a lizard for this as it adds bulk and can be fished slowly. The thickness of the cover determines the size of the weight needed to penetrate to get to the fish but in general, you want to fish the lightest weight you can get away with so the bait doesn’t go flying past them on the fall. Pace preaches the speed at which you fish to be the single most important thing. You need to focus on small areas that you can fish as thoroughly as possible.
