    Air pressure effect: there are too many factors to make a single conclusion, such as season, targeted fish, time of day, etc. No relevance, but I have noticed that you see more silt bubbles in low air pressure - sad I know - perhaps I should concentrate more on actual catching!

    Apologies for being off-subject but the moon definitely effects fishing - even during the day.

    Ah but Peter,would it stop you going,wouldn't me,if I'm going I can't be assed with worrying about all of it,I just go,fish against the conditions and catch,or not,whatever.

    Try this for conditions including air pressure, give it time to warm up. Its more about which species, its always good to try whatever the conditions.

    I have to be honest,I've kept records myself and can't see a pattern.The old adage of high pressure with fish high in the water ,and low,low in the water seems to hold true,but feeding patterns seem a little less predictable.That's the beauty of fishing I suppose.Thanks all.

    Yes Keith, as I've mentioned before hydrostatic pressure is much more intense than air pressure due to water being considerably denser than air. So, if a fish changes its depth even a couple of feet up or down it will go through more of a pressure change in seconds than any of us will ever experience on dry land. Therefore, how could the barometric pressure above the surface affect a fish that goes through equal to a surface pressure change if they move only a few inches up, or down in the water............

    I'm not too sure of the answer though...............
    That's about as big as a fish that big gets
    When you ask me what I am doing today and I say 'nothing' it does not mean that I am free. It means that I am doing nothing........

    Whitty, I'm the same as you, no it doesn't stop me going. Too old to stop now - when you gotta go you gotta go!!! The only thing that very occasionally stops me going is the wife - she is more sensible!!!

    A friend of mine as recently started to log his pike catches in a chart against air pressure readings. It will be interesting to see if his catches are better than mine, I just go when I can.
    There are various studies on the net and in books about air pressure and fish catches none really conclusive.
