barometric pressure

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if any of you pay much attention to it. if so when do you find the fish most active? steady, dropping or rising

It does have a bit to do with the activity of the fish. You want to look for a slow drop in the pressure. That's when fish tend to turn on more. you can catch them either way but when it is slowly dropping you will see more aggression in the fish then a big drop or rise in the pressure

Accuweather. Look for any times when the weather has been clear then turns rainy/snowy. This is a drop in barometric pressure. As far as simply giving the predictions in in-Hg, I don't know of one.

Try" weather underground"...hourly forecasts have something on there, but I don't know how accurate they are.

With that said, does anyone have specific websites they use that predicts barometric pressure a few days in advance?

I have a barometer app on my iPhone that I use. It's pretty basic, but tells me what I need to know. It cost $.99.

I wonder about the barometer readings too. I look at the Realtree game forecast online sometimes before I go fishing. Some days I do think it goes along with the bite. Last week before the cold front hit I looked to the north and I saw big dark clouds moving in. I went to the fish house and had a great bite. Better than it had been for days. Must have been a low front bringing in those clouds. The realtree site I think goes a week ahead if you dial it in.

wunderground.com go to your location then scroll to the bottom of the page to weather stations. click on a weather station. you can look at everything there by day, week and month in a graph. you can also search for us barometric map. one i use is usairnet dot com. It has current pressures- you will need to figure out how fast and what direction its comeing from.

I dunno....we humans consistently make the same logical error: We tend to look for evidence that confirms our views but we discount evidence that doesn't (check Sillytown if you need some evidence of this). It's called the confirmation bias, and I'm an absolute sucker for it when it comes to barometric pressure. If I don't catch fish and pressure is rising, that's my excuse....and it's why the fish didn't bite. If I do catch fish and high pressure is coming in, then I'm an awesome fisherman (that's also another logical flaw, the attribution bias). Either way, I suspect that I'm not alone in noticing when the fishes' expected reactions to changing pressure levels confirm my bias...but not noticing when it doesn't.

That being said, there DOES seem to be a noticeable lack of aggression in fish when the pressure is rising. But, again, I dunno. smile

Although I just try and get out fishing whenever I have the opportunity, I do believe high barometric pressure can make fish tight lipped. I think fish can feel the pressure and it makes them feel full. When crappie fishing it seems like the fish run higher in the water column and are much more aggressive when the pressure is low. Not that they are un catchable during high pressure but it seems like you have to work them a lot harder to get a reaction. 2c

    • A lot of talk about a lot of nothing...until it is actually something! 🤔😏  As long as Thibs is here I believe that Jimmy has  chance to stay.  If Jimmy were to leave I would be surprised if he stayed in the west but if he did matching him up with LAbron would be a tough duo to build around.
    • A lot of good looking recipes on Old Bay's s i t e : Old Bay Recipes
    • I too am going to try that, done it with burger before.  I think with shrimp I'd maybe pre-cook the taters some, half way??  then cut foil cause shrimp cook super fast!!  thanks for the idea!!   and old bay is a must on that!!!
    • Thanks big d, I wanna give it a shot as well!!
    • The recipe I sort of followed said to cook it for 15-17 minutes at 350 but it took about 25-30 minutes to get the potatoes done even though I sliced them thin.   It's worth a try. We do a shrimp boil sometimes when we go camping with a group. I do it in the turkey pot and follow the recipe from Old Bay seasoning w-e-b-s-i-t-e except I like to add some chicken as well. It is very good and everyone loves it. 
    • How long and what temp did you cook this? Looks really good I want to give it a try now.
    • Chops, brats, asparagus, onions and mushrooms in the foil and a little Malbec
    • Shrimp boil in foil packets on the pellet grill. Potatoes, corn, Andouille sausage, shrimp, lemon slices, butter and Cajun seasoning. I usually use some Old Bay in my shrimp boil but I was out and didn't know it until I started putting it all together.      
    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!
      Sunset Lodge
