Ive heard a old fish tale that fish can sense when rain or a storm is coming so they feed before thinking they might not have another time to feed until is goes..ect

To be honest before, during, and after I usually have the same luck and maybe its just physiologicaly but I think right before usually seems to be really good if your in the right spot

I like before and during as well. The way I see it, the fish are already wet!

Freshwater catfish and bream seem to bite better after the rain. I guess they are looking for a meal that got washed into the water. May apply to bass as well, but I dont bass fish much...

Its the barometric pressure dropping and they feel it with their lateral line....Water doesn't compress ,so even slight barometric pressure fluctuations can be felt by anything that lives in it ....Usually fish will seek deeper water after a front......but mileage might vary under similar conditions,lol......

You must have paid attention in science class.

The weight of the air (barometric pressure) will push-pull fish up and down the water column as it (pressure) rises and falls.

For instance, fish tend to be higher in the water column when it's a rising bar. Vs. deeper after a front, like fairpoint said, when the pressure falls and the air is heavier.

Understanding how air pressure effects fish location helps decide which lure to use...top, mid-water or bottom...

Fish accordingly...lol.
