When you take a look out on the water in November you don't see the throng of boat traffic that a typical fall day would include. Mainly because most anglers are hunters, and they replace their rod n' reel for rattlin' antlers and grunt tubes. I find myself in the same dilemma each November, and the result is always the same give me the open water.
Did you ever wonder why bass attack plastic worms? It's not because worms make up a significant part of a bass' diet. Worms, notably earthworms, are not aquatic animals. Instead, they live on land burrowing through the soil.
First, let me say that as an angler I understand that bass fishing after a cold front can be very frustrating.

From the time the weather began to warm early this year until now, every lake in the country has seen the local angling population hammer the resident bass with every bait and presentation under the sun. And now, with the return of summer’s heat, long days and rising water temperatures, the bass in most places are retreating to their offshore confines, looking for cover and an easy meal.
