With each cool front come the north winds and the lower tides. In fact, many times when these fronts come through, the tidal marshes are nearly drained of most of their water. Whenever the water leaves, so does the baitfish and shrimp that inhabit those areas. With this situation comes the fall turn-on for fish catching. This is the case not only on the areas near the marsh drains, but this bait will also move out into the inland saltwater lakes and bays. And it will make the predator fish more vulnerable to the anglers.
