Was concerned that this may be a bit soon after the strong cold front, but went anyway if only just to get out and would count it as a data point to that question. Birds were active – Spoonbill and Ibis were busy along the bank, but the fish were not evident.
Finally, after a couple of hours of no bites I had a bump. Then caught a small black drum. Ah – an actual fish! Nothing else in the area, so I moved on and soon had a couple of hook-ups that were off before getting them to the boat. Then another on and a 21” red in the boat. This was followed in fairly quick succession by more reds, at one point landed 3 in a bit over 10 minutes! These were all under 20” (15-19”) but still some fun battles. I ended with 5 in that area then another 3 at locations headed back to the launch. The fish were all in relatively deep water, though that being only 2.5-3.5’. All fish were caught on a jerk shad.
So, in answer to the question – too soon after the cold front? - Nah, if you have a chance to go, take it!
