Tips on Fishing a Cold Front

Most of the Eastern US will experience a cold front in the next few days, leading up to Thanksgiving.  It makes sense to share some tips for fishing Musky prior, during, and after a cold front passes through.  

During even a mild cold front, musky fishing can become more challenging., however, in the fall, a cold front could get the excellent fall bite going, so a cold front isn’t always a bad thing when musky fishing.

For the cold fronts in the spring and summer, most fish are affected and because of that, musky will be affected too.  Muskie are at the top of the food chain, so if the bait fish move or are not moving around as much, it affects where the musky will be and how they reach.  However, this doesn’t mean that musky won’t eat after a cold front.  The determined angler can still put some fish in the boat after a cold front.

  • Fish Murky Water
  • Fish the Rivers
  • Fish Tighter to Cover
  • Fish Deeper
  • Use Live Bait
