Default weather and fronts....

i aint posted in a while but i'm on here everyday reading everything posted and it helps me greatly... but i got a problem now... i've heard to many different stories about cold fronts and warm fronts to know what to believe... it has been mid to high forties all week this week and friday it's going to be mid 60's saturday mid sixties sunday monday and tuesdays low to high 70's
cloudy and chance of rain sat. sun. and monday. thunderstorms on friday night....
its going back down to mid 50's wednesday and then on...

i guess my first question is what kind of fronts is good this time of year... if there is any
my second question is i know i'm going to hit the lake atleast once hopefully twice this weeked what should i fish and what should i throw... last week they were hitting spinnerbaits the water tempature is low 50's

Hey there JD

Since you last had success with a spinnerbait I would try that to see if they are still on it. If not, try a red lipless crankbait. Winter time is killer for those especially when the water is in the 50's.

If nothing happens on those then move out a little deeper from the areas you were catching fish in with your SB and work worms, jigs, Carolina rigs or drop shots. If you were catching fish say in 5-8 foot depths with the spinnerbait then back out to the 10-15 foot depth and see if you can find a breakline. That is where the depth changes quickly from one depth to another.

If you are on foot then stick to the lipless crankbait. It is a great search bait. If you catch a few on that then try a worm in the same area.

There is so much more but this is a quick general help.

On warming trends I find fish are very active in the NW section of the lake as that is typically the warmest water. Sun beats on it good and it is protected by the north winds best.

Hope that helps.
