Do approaching weather systems such as cold fronts, dry lines, etc play a factor in the Bluegill/Sunfish bite? What do some of you Gill Busters say? noidea

I don't think it plays as much of a factor as it does with bass. Seems like once water temp gets to their comfort zone the will bite pretty good all the time...

I noticed this morning that the bluegill were slow to bite. It didn't really get going until noonish. I'm thinking that after 2 days of 50-60 degree weather the water temps had dropped. I second the previous poster. I think water temps are more important than ambient temps.

I have found that fishing one to three days ahead of a weather system the bite is usually good. Also as already been mentioned water temperature plays a huge factor in the bite compared to air temperature. For the most part I have done well fishing ahead of a front most of the time. The day of a front and the day after a front I usually do not do as well. Different species of fish will react differently. As for the Bluegill/Sunfish goes once their water temperature reaches their comfort zone and stays that way, the bite will be good most of the time. Type of water bodies factor into this as well. thumb

Yes another front is here. Fronts seem to arrive a lot this time of year. In my opinion they do have some effect on the fishing patterns. However it is the wind they bring that is a huge problem for me.

We have had two cold fronts this week. I fished pre front both days and the bite was extremely slow. A couple of days prior to the first front it was non stop action and I caught plenty of good quality fish. I figured the bite would have been the same if not better these past few days. noidea
