HOW UNDERSTANDING WEATHER HELPS YOU CATCH MORE BASS
George Cochran, two-time B.A.S.S. Master's Classic winner, believes that his ability to understand the weather has helped his fishing career. According to Cochran, "Any bass angler who wants to regularly catch more bass must know how various types of weather affect the fish he's trying to take."
Fishermen must master fishing cold fronts, rising water, rain, wind, moons and barometric pressure. Gary Jenkins, fisheries biologist with the Tennessee Valley Authority, reports "The slowest-moving baits in your tackle box are best for bassing a cold front. Your very best bait may be the jig and pig, because it can be worked slowly and down in deep cover. If you have clear water, your best tactic is to back way off from your target area, cast to it and use a slow retrieve. If the water is stained, anglers can move in closer and try and flip. A worm is an excellent choice for a bait if the water has warmed up. If the water is cold, the jig and frog is going to pay the biggest dividends."
Front fishing can be difficult, but you will never catch bass unless you go to the lake and make a try.
