Your Cold Front Tactics

Recommended Posts

Cast N Blast

Just wanted to know what type of set-ups and tactics you like to use on cold front walleyes. Do you seem to do better on a certain type of structure also? Rocks? Gravel? Mud? whatever? I guess I will be going to the pond in this freezing cold stuff. Almost seems like torture.

TTT Crown Royal sounds like a good set-up for me as well, but seriously what do some of you FM's like to do to get the eye's going with weather like we will be having this weekend? confused.gif

cast and blast, i like to fish the deeper water with one dead stick and one pimple. usually jig the heck out of the pimple and will attract them to the dead stick, just plain hook maybe colored but thats it with a shiner or fathead, might play around with the size of the minnow too. thats what i do anyway seems to work gl2u

Two words, smaller & slower....Generally, when things get cold the fish slow down and prefer smaller baits and less agressive presentations. Try a dropper rig...they work very well in situations like this. Check some of the articles on the website...they will help you out. Good luck this weekend, I will be out freezing with you. At least the cold might keep some of the activity on the lake down!!

I agree with Zemp, slow, small...but consistant. If you mark fish, try something different, like a vertical jig vs. a horizontal jig. Sometimes that is just enough. crappie minnows instead of fatheads might not be a bad thing either. The only way to know is to try.

over the limit

when a cold front moves in stay home.

because the fishing will come to a dead stop,

till about next tuesday or wednesday,

with this cold weather, that ice is going to be raising hell and spook the fish,

      Gulp crawler.  In the spot the walleyes were going in there was a pile of 3-5" perch that tore up the real crawlers.   Gulp crawlers took care of the issue and the eyes liked them too.

      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.

      Vermilion might be down a little, but not much.  Your lakes might be different.

      Is that a gulp worm?  I am not on Osakis but cant fish with live bait without the bass, sunnies, and perch hammering it instantly.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!
