Throw Topwater Baits for Cold Front Bass Fishing

Throwing a prop style topwater during cold front conditions can be extremely effective, especially during the spawning months for bass fishing. Florida native and professional angler John Cox gives a little insight on what he likes to pick up when a cold front hits while fish are starting to pull up on beds.


Cox likes to pick up a prop style topwater when a cold front hits. This prop style bait allows him to cause enough commotion to get the attention of a lethargic fish. Still, with the dual propellers, he can slow down and keep the bait in the strike zone long enough to tease them into biting. Making pinpoint casts into likely bedding areas, like voids in the vegetation, is key to getting bites.
