Fishing after rain

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I'm curious what others think about fishing for bass right after it stops raining. Good? Bad? Are the fish a bit shy? In the past i've usually had less success when fishing after hard rain so i'd like to hear some opinions on it. thanks

I prefer to fish in the rain. the fish are already wet and my spots are empty.
if it's a heavy rain, I like to fish spots that normally aren't under water.

During the heat of the summer, I've had lots of luck fishing right after a heavy afternoon thundershower... especially for largemouths in ponds. Also, if you can catch the beginning few hours of a cold front...when things are still unsettled... it can be very productive.

Cuaght this one along with a few others this morning in the rain. After it stopped the bite pretty much died. Lure of choice was a Excalibur shallow runner.

caught 15 bass over the past two days in about 3-4 hours of fishing. mostly dinks, but caught a couple nice fish in there as well. the bite was much more aggressive than it was when i fished last week. i like to get out when it rains cause i like to stay cool and fish alone. keeps the fair weather fishermen home

Post front is typically not known for a good bite, although a sudden thunderstorm can stimulate a bite due to runoff for a short time. As soon as the wind kicks in, it's usually over. Pre-front, right as the barometer falls drastically will give the most consistent bite, especially for larger fish.

Just my $.02

i think thats fairly accurate. I was fishing in the rain on saturday and was catching a good amount of fish, the rain stopped here around 11:30-11:45 and the fishing completely died. not a bite in the next half hour so i packed it in
