    I'm afraid that would be a luxury for me. I go fishing when I'm not at the pharmacy and when the boss will let me (which is more than I deserve)

    The BP has more effect on the micro organisms, which in turn have an affect on the bait fish and then of course the fish. Quick changes in pressure lead to instability in the water column, making it difficult for a micro organism swim... And in turn makes them sitting ducks for minnows, so they put the feed bag on, which affects the fish. At least that's the cliff notes, so it can definitely enhance the bite, unless you're on a reaction bite in the first place.

    I don't think barometric pressure, in and of itself, has much of an effect on the fish, themselves. It is, however, an indication of changing weather patterns (approaching storms, passing fronts, etc). To me, the weather patterns have a more direct effect on the water conditions ... and therefore a more direct effect on the fish & their activity level.

    I'm pretty sure that, IF the barometric pressure alone was the single most important factor in the fish biting or not, then ALL boats would be outfitted with a barometer .... and if not the boat, then surely it would be available in among all the other electrical gauges and depth indicating units that could be added on. Even the color/pH/temp gauges, that used to be a "gotta have" item, never offered a barometric gauge.

    Yep. You can compress air but you ain't gonna compress water much. If I remember correctly (I ain't gonna look it up) water pressure changes 1 atmosphere every 33 feet. If the atmosphere (air) compressed at this rate, well we would blow a lung at about 100ft.

    I have always found this curious....on the forums you hear a lot of talk which seems to basically say that nothing affects them except your ability to catch them.

    But in the real world....fishing turns off and on. I go fishing when I can because I don't have enough opportunities. And on occasion I show up at any one of a number of ramps and the word is out...the fish are biting and the lot is full. Other times nobody is there and geez guess what they aren't biting good.

    Now...if your a good fisherman with a lot of knowledge and skill and persistence etc...you're going to catch fish on a much higher average than the individual who does not have those skills or persistence.And sometimes catch fish when nobody else is.

    But in hunting and fishing ....game and fish do get in a "funk" sometimes and become very inactive.

    Heck...I have been on fishing and hunting trips for extended periods and some days you could not see or catch the desired quarry for days in a row...then all of a sudden they are running over you or jumping on your hook. And so has everybody else.... Or fish all day to find only a period or two they feed good.

    And Barometric pressure is one of the factors involved in that...among other things. It is very difficult to pinpoint the exact way it affects it...but it does. Everybody knows that a rapidly changing barometer associated with a front can put fish on the bite and game on the move...or shut them down...depending on exactly how its changing and what time period during that change you happen to be there.

    My gosh....anybody who has a pond or a field that deer feed in or a yard full of squirrels can watch it all the time. Its as plain as the nose on your face unless you're terribly non observant.

    High pressure - deep, low pressure - shallower. Pressure slow falling helps the bite. New moon the best fishing days. My 2Cents.

    ON FRONTAL SYSTEM MOST OF US HAVE MANY TIMES SEEN FISH BITE BETTER,THERE ARE MANY SPECKULATION AS TO WHY. WE DO NOTICE IT GETS DARKER ,ALSO AFTER ITS OVER IT USUALLY GET BRIGHT SKIES AND FISHING GETS HARDER,DOES NOT MEAN WE CAN'T STILL CATCH SOME BUT IT WILL NOT BE AS GOOD IN MOST CASES,I ALSO THINK ON BRIGHT DAYS IN CLEAR WATER FISH ARE MORE LIKELY TO SHUT DOWN UNTIL LOW LIGHT CONDITION,THAT IS WHY SUNNY DAYS FISHING IS BETTER UNDER DOCKS THAN OTHER DAYS ESPECIALLY ON CLEAR WATER, ALSO STABLE WEATHER IS USUALLY BETTER THAN CONTINUE CHANGING WEATHER,BUT THERE WE GO AGAIN WITH OUR SEAMLY CONTRADITION WITH OUR FRONTAL SYSTEM,MY MY,MY HEAD IS CONFUSE ,LETS JUST GO FISHING

    I do know that most bluebird days stink unless it's early or late in the day. Especially after a cold front. That's one trend I can't dispute. I don't like bluebird days for fishing mid day, I had rather spend that time doing something with my kids.
