barometer fishing at its best
« on: April 23, 2010, 10:14:29 PM »
years ago i heard about fishing by the barometer and have found it to be the truth,when weather fronts are moving into your area the barometer will rise,sending fish into a feeding frenzy and when the barometer falls,so do the fish feeding.give it a try and get back with me,you will be glad you did.also i have heard throughout the years of fishing in the rain and i went my limits with that without success.but i'm sure there are places and moments for that.such as trot line while i watch tv, listen to the rain and take 40 and 50 pound flathead the next morning.sunnyseason4u

The barometer has a great deal to do with fish biting or not. The ole rule of thumb is that a reading between 28.98-30.02 is perfect. Too high of a reading will affect fishing just as much as a low reading. I like to catch the barometer when its around 30.15 or so...which is a touch too high......but falling. Any fall of a tenth or so is when the fish seem to really turn on. A high barometer that is falling is a better bite than a low one that is rising I have found. But anytime it is in the 29.90s to as high as 30.10, fish will bite just fine.
