Did anybody fish during the cold front this last weekend? I was out on Cedar Creek and noticed the shad have migrated up creek channels, but found all the shad to be suspended in the channel at about 30' of water. Made for a tough bite for me. Only boated five in 6 hours of fishing; no real pattern established. I waited to go out on the lake until is was above 40 degree! Water temps ranged from 60-63 degrees.
Loc: Fort Worth, Tx.
On Saturday during the front in the gusty wind I landed about 20 total on the Trinity river. Biggest one was maybe 3.5-4lbs. Fish were biting just fine on the river Im sure lakes were probably much tougher though.
The fishing at Ray Roberts was very good on Sunday. Until the sun really came up, the only bite I got was on a wacky rigged Yum Dinger. I used a GB Rattlesnake with a weight pegged about 24" above it to catch several, including the 3.8lb'er below. I caught one on a chrome Rattletrap but plastics ruled the day.
