barometer changes?

Recommended Posts

Guest

there are millions of theories on the low pressure theory, and they're all based on the fact that the change in pressure affects a fish's air bladder and thus changes its habits. Low pressure is directly related to changing weather patterns, hence all the snow or rain during "prime"fishing or what have you.

Anything you read in a fishing magazine, video, or HSOforum should be taken with a grain of salt,....test the theories, you can only be sure of what has put fish in your bucket previously.

What I've heard was that High Pressure pushes planton and micro-organisms down to the bottom.

Low Pressure lets them off the bottom thus starting the good ol food chain.

Of course I have no clue if this is true or not. But before and durning sure can be phenomenal.

It was explained to me the opposite. Imagine the barometric pressure being like a glass cieling in the sky and when a low pressure system comes in it drops down low, actually more pressure on us if you will. and a high pressure system it rises higher up in the sky with less pressure on us. You can make a homemade barometer out of a coffee can and plastic wrap , cant remember all the details exactly but when a low front came in the plastic wrap would push down into the can. Great topic though, the weather has allways amazed me the way it can effect fishing. I remember times we would hammer the eyes one day come back the next day same lake, same holes, bait, time, depth etc. and nothing....the only thing that had changed was the weather. How many of you have had the same experience?

I heard that barometer pressure dropping is prime time to be fishing?? Also, if there's no moon? Like, to hear some stories if this is true or not...

I think fishing is at it's best right before the storm, when the pressure is dropping.

    • I guess I could repost the photos of my neighbor's house and garage engulfed in flames from when they were refilling those one pound cylinders.......   It was really interesting to watch.....
    • that looks slick but probably pretty spendy if you need to use the refillable cylinder. I wonder if coleman would work?  I just watched a different video where the one pounders are filled while using a small curved forceps to vent while filling. Went to garage and filled 3 that way. Worked dandy. Nothing has to be chilled. 
    • The one thing I liked on my Elite-5 was that when a fish was about to bite the return would turn very red. I don' tget that with the Showdown. Bit it does get a darker black.
    • did you just keep it square and cut a slot through it? any idea which one? seems like a bunch of options; https://www.homedepot.com/b/Building-Materials-Glass-Plastic-Sheets/LEXAN/N-5yc1vZbrdgZ5tg   i see 11x14" sheets for $8 a piece, but they only have a .093" thickness  
    • Chip is on the list, but will wait to see how good the included mapping is. Making my own will be great as there are no detailed maps for a lot of water I fish.   I may have triggered someone here with that link. 2 more sold since my last post. Seller also has the 5 for a good price. My eyes aint getting any younger though! 
    • I got an old  10lb'er on craiglist  for $10 a few years ago, got it re-certified at a local propane co-op and never looked back.  I love it.   Has anyone used this, if so how do you like it: Flame King Refillable 1 LB Empty Propane Cylinder Tank  with Refill Kit that looks like it would be ideal. 
    • I'm sure you included that link for a reason, so I'll go ahead and say it...you got a crazy good deal on that Helix 7!   It's going to take a little getting used to compared to the Vex, but you're really going to enjoy it.  Assuming you already have a Lakemaster Chip for it, or are getting one?
    • I’ve had this same issue myself for years. I like using a hose to a bigger tank but the 20lber is impractical unless able to drive out. I’ve searched for the 5lb and can find them easily ( Cabela’s, Fleet Farm). But the price will kill a guy. I can buy 2 maybe 3 20lb cylinders for the price of one 5lb. My solution, just continue to buy and use 1lb. Sams club is by far the cheapest at $12.50 (ish) for a 4 pack. I can usually get by on about 1 cylinder per 2 outings on average. Takes 4-6 4 packs per season for Me. Which yes is a lot compared to just refilling them but “convince” is more appealing then the cost IMO.
    • I used lexan... thought about using plexiglass but plexi and cold don't mixed when you have little ones around. I can stand on these and I am 275#
