Also why does a cold front effect the behavior of redfish that drives them to these specific areas.
For redfish, more than anything, cold fronts drop the tide height.. and if you're a fish that spends a lot of time in 1' of water, then you're going to pay attention to that. I've been on the flats right when a wind chance to West or north has happened and the redfish pour off the flats. They can usually be found on the edges of the flats during the time after the front hits.. that any guts that they could fall off into and take advantage of current funneling bait off a flat. The cool thing about redfish is that their feeding habits are less affected than compared to trout.
hope that helps.. A lot of guys have really loved the Shallow Redfish DVD that we make (TroutSupport.com) it covers numerous scenarios that would help in the area you fish. Don't take my word for it.. just look for all the testimonials on the internet.. easy to find them.
