Cold fronts can shut bass activity down like a light switch but you can still catch ’em if you make smart adjustments. Bill Lowen shares 4 swim jig tips for staying on the bite when targeting bass during and after a cold front moves through.

Slowing down is vital when targeting bass in a funk. Lowen accomplishes this by reducing jig head weight and pairing the jig with plastics that displace a bunch of water. Doing so allows you to ‘float’ or ‘hover’ the jig in the strike zone much longer. Lastly, Lowen stresses the importance of making rapid cast-backs if you miss a bite or observe active bass in an area.
