Default Fishing before a storm/front

So we had this mother of a front move in Monday night/Tuesday morning. We had stable warm weather the end of last week and through the weekend. Theoretically fishing should be very good right before frontal passage, no?

I was fishing the chain Monday for Bass then Muskie and didnít catch squat! The people I chatted with by the ramp didnít do any good either. Water temps were 58/59 degrees. There was an overcast sky most of the afternoon and plenty of chopÖ.what gives???

The Chain really gets affected by low water levels, water clarity, and lack of current. Were you fishing north or south?
