3 Tips To Catch Redfish & Snook Before A Cold Front When Paddle Fishing


It’s pre-front time!

This winter we’ve talked a lot about how to fish the cold, clear days after a cold front, but we haven’t yet covered how to fish the unpredictable days before a cold front.

So this past week I took out the paddleboard the day before a cold front and did some exploring (and catching!).

Check out this video for three tips for pre-front fishing, plus:

Can you share the area you film the video?
I mean the area, no particular spot. There’s a lot of people that do not know where to go, either east or west coast. I believe if we are members we should have that as a privilege. So many times I don’t know where to launch my Yak. Please think about it!!!

It’s nice to see I’m not the only person cleaning up behing the slobs that leave trash. As a public figure and a person that puts out videos for public consumption, PLEASE stop pronouncing especially with a X. There is no X in especially. Geez..

Nice report, Luke. It looked like a fun trip. It’s nice when trips finish on higher notes like that. I saw that you were using a Daiwa BG reel. I have had the 2500 size for only a short time, but so far I really love it.

And I really like your message and example of picking up some trash and disposing of it properly. In addition to helping our environment, you never know who else is watching (kids, other anglers) and will follow a good example.

I believe the Fish Gods reward those who pick up the floating debris.
